my dad and i are restoring his 72 F-250 4x4 high boy. we had a 2wd donor truck with what we thought was a good body. we took off the box and looked it over and that was pretty nice, then we took off the front clip and found that the core support and aprons were shot and now last weekend we took off the cab and found the front and rear mounts were bad and the floors and the pillars that run up that the doors bolt to. now i know floors and mounts arent bad to replace but the whole cab is rotten thanks to minnesota winters. so what im looking for is a cab and front clip maybe even a whole truck to buy. hopefully in wisc, nd,sd,or iowa. my dad and i are taking a trip to napoleon north dakota this weekend to look at a couple of bodies. any help from you guys would be great. if you know of any decent cheaper trucks for sale or cabs and front clips please tell me thanks in advance
if you can get pics of the bottom of the cab like the mounts and floor that would be great. and a pic of the front clip showing the mounts, core support, and aprons where the hood hinges bolt on. and also ask what he wants for a price. thanks alot
ok now im gettin mad why is my post gone? it wasnt an old one i just posted it. anyway i was looking for a cab and front clip for a 67-72 ford pickup. anyone with any knowledge of junk yards or complete trucks close to mn like nd sd or iowa please let me know. id really appreciate any help thanks
I have a good cab here, and may have a good clip too, not same truck but same style, have to check on the clip.
