Talking Crew Cab Update!

I have almost finished the outside of my Crew. Now I have to start on the inside. The orginal had black interior seats, door panels, and dash pad.

Ya'll give me your opinion-- should I stay with the black, and have a black and grey interior, although I might paint some black parts grey, or should I go with a tan interior, and paint everything.

I am having the seats recovered, and new carpet will be installed, so the color is pretty much open at this point.

Looked at new trucks today that have this exterior color, and all of them had grey interior. I am leaning towards grey. Let me know what you think.

Just reinstalled the bed after adding extra rear tank. Used Jaz fuel cell fillers in the side of the bed--wanted something different! Also check out the exaust tips--4" schedule 80 polished aluminum.

If my old 79 will pull it, I am bringing it to Vidalia for the get together.

I love that color. What are you going to do the inside of the bed in?

That truck looks sweet. I vote for the black and grey interior. I always liked old crew cabs. They are unique.

They are few and far in between and 90% of the ones you do see were work horses and ran into the ground so bad that one would question the point of a resto.

The bed will be Line X. It took me a while to find a crew that wasn't rusted down..This one came from Oregon. It is now at the point where I can't wait to finish it.
Now it gets even more expensive--

Interior, wheels, grill, and bumpers are whats left.

Plans are for a carpeted interior using the original seats for now, just recover them nicely. Add a kick*** sound system, new front and rear bumpers, reciever hitch,all new window seals, tint the windows, flowmaster exaust, and 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers on 18" wheels---Then i'll be happy!!!!

Engine is finished--390 with a few goodies thrown in.

My galleries have a lot of pictures showing the rebuilds of both the 76 crew and my 79 Lariat.

Do you already have an idea of what wheels you are going to run?

I like the looks of the Mickey Thompson Classic II's. They have the look of the bullet holes that came on these model trucks, just a little updated. I don't like the looks of the modern wheels on old trucks. JMO

I just checked out your gallery. You have done a ton of work to your trucks. Keep up the good work.

Thanks,

I started out working on Fords as a line mechanic at Britton Ford, in Delhi, in the early 80's. Have loved them ever since.

My next gallery will be the build up of our 79 mud racing truck!!
SWB 1/2 ton with a 351m and C6 transmission. My son and I are building this one to run the circuit in Monroe, Tallulah, Baton Rouge, and Minden.
Adding a little to the engine-- Hope to kick some Chevy a** in the stock class.
Go Ford!!!!!
