davethecow is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Another orphan has a home.

At my house.She's a cute 1978 f150 stepside 4x4.351 windsor(yes i double checked)np435 gearbox and a np205 transfercase.
The real treat is almost no rust.This truck is in exelent condition.the intierior is good,the body is straight.The only problem is that its been sitting for a long time.
A buddy of mine aquierd the truck from the guy who had it,he thought the timeing chain had broke.well my friend got it home and and played with it and got it to run for a bit.guess it wasnt the timing chain.
Its a project that one person started and just pawned off on someone else.i think im the forth.so far from what i see is that all the work so far has been correct and no shortcuts.
My friend is a dodge guy so he let me have it preety cheap.other wise his nieghbor wanted to use it as a beater.My friend even saw that this truck only needs a little tlc,and would be a nice ride.wow a dodge guy saw that,i guess you gain respect when your #1 year after year.
