I want to convert my 1975 CrewCab to a manual transmission. I need the tail housing for a NP 435 and possibly the tail shaft of a highboy transmission.
Anybody have these parts available or have a contact that might have any or all of what it will take to convert it?

78_F150 -- Looks good, I don't see anything wrong, not bad at all. I like the long bed (have two trucks in this configuration, including a 79 crew) but lots of folks like a short bed. yours doesn't look "too" short so I say looks great.

Personally I really like the looks of the super short bed. I bet it helped with maneuvering and fitting in parking spaces etc. While I'd love to do this to my '74 I like the function of the bed too much to do so.

the last time i went wheelin, it accidentally rolled backwards down a hill with nobody in it and it smashed into a bank. it bent the frame pretty bad so i got a new frame, but then decided to go with a new body as well. i ended up just takin the axles motor ect ect out of it and dropped it off at the junkyard. should have kept the cab but i didnt have anywhere to keep it or do anything with it.

Thanks, Lostinfords
It would cost us too much to ship or I would trade with ya. Wyoming to NJ would be a fortune for sure. Still looking locally within a couple hundred miles. Distracted lately with the new FE 418 build but can't wait to install the NP435. Heck I'd even put it in for ya If you were closer.
