Today I got a NOS grill still in the Ford box and a pair of fenders unopened till now and the 5 volume set manual for my 77.He also tossed in some new brake pads and door sill plates.When he said he only wanted $200 for all of it I was sure I was going to get a ticket getting to the bank machine.And tomorrow I"m going to look at a box again for my 77 F100 S/B.It did"nt look to bad in the dark but I"ll have a better look in the day lite.Now I just need someone to paint it and put the stuff on.
Ya it"s a good deal and It"s kinda nice to have the original manuals.But the truck won"t be stock so I will probably sell the manuals once I"ve gone through them.But the grill and the fenders is what i was really after.I down loaded the NPD catolog and it looks like they sell the s/b bed sides for 77 but I don"t know how to make it big enough to read it proper.
man those manuals sure are nice t ohave, my dad has the complete set for those years (theres a guy in red deer that sells all that kind of stuff), and they have saved us many hours worth of work, so i would try to keep em, as all that info is priceless. Andit would cost 200 bucks alone to replace those manuals (NOS ford stuff anyway).
I was thinking of selling them and 1 fender.But why not use the best to make the truck look good.The fenders on it know are pretty much rust free but ones a little bang up.And the manuals I read a bit of them every morning.look at the price of a nos grill on ebay it's crazy $485 american and it did"nt get reserve.I think I"d be nuts ta sell them,
NOS grill is a new old stock grill.I got this grill from a person that was going to fix his truck about 20 years ago.It"s an original Ford part.That has not been used.The grill and the front fenders were still in the ford boxes unopened.I still hav"nt taken the fenders out of the boxes yet.I did look inside and see a couple of places were the box has rubbed of some of the original primer.THese things look great
