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.
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 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.
