My wife and I were cruising the "bad" part of town, in hopes of finding a 67-70 f100 or similar that someone might want to part with..or at least sell some parts. What I found nearly kicked my butt....as I drove over a hill I saw, on a semi trailer...( on top of two other cars ) was a 67 or 68 inside a junk yard next to a car crusher. I pulled up to the locked gates and all I could see was the perfect grille! No headlights or buckets..but the crossmembers were PERFECT! I stood there wishing I could get to it before its certain fate of being crushed became a reality.. that is when one of the workers pulled up and asked if he could help me. ( on a sunday...believe it or not ) ...and he let me in to look....had they not beat the hell out of it loading it on the trailer there would be a ton of good parts here. The grill is in fact nearly perfect. Lots of good trim and hardware...all the glass looks good...the interior is quiet amazing...still has the factory am radio...dash pad is still soft ( blue )...pads on the doors are nice as are the arm rests... I told the guy I wanted the whole truck. They just want the frame for scrap metal and will crush the rest. They are setting it aside for me to go through next saturday ( I hope...)...should have a pretty good load of stuff on the way home...any one want any parts? Body is pretty much shot. I am gonna gut the doors...take the glass, latches, window regulators....grill ( MINE MINE MINE ) dash pad ( MINE MINE MINE ) radio...what else should I get?
