Hello all, I know I'm a little bit late on the posting dates and all, but better late than never.
I'm from Mitchell, SD currently 18 years old.
I wasn't really a Ford guy when I first started driving (Blew up the transmission in a Ford Taurus within two weeks of having a drivers license ). After I blew up the tore-*** (Har har har) my grandpa sold me his 1973 Ford F100 pickup. It had a 302 from a '79 Ford LTD with a C4 transmission. It was RWD with an aftermarket 9" Ford Rear-End. I drove the hell out of that truck, and loved it. Never broke down on me when I needed it. I was hell bent on buying a Chevy 4x4, so I got a '89 K2500 and sold my Grandpa's F100. Ever since I sold the pickup I bought from him, I've been hell-bent on going back to what I had. One year later, I own a 1976 Ford F150 4x4 with a 360 engine and C6 transmission. Dana 44 front axle and Ford 9" Rear axle.
I love these older pickups (73 - 79 is my personal preference). They're built like Tanks, and that's why I'm going to Sell my Chevrolet to Finance the building/fixing of my F150.
My name is Brian. But I go by Kramer thanks to a friend, will never get rid of that one. Live rural Garretson, Sherman to be exact. Lifetime blueblood. Lots. Lots of dents four and two. Juice and sticks. One f600 . Couple bulls. Two 89 150s, Fairmonts, vans, and even a 70 'tego. Bros got a Shorty bump been in the dells burnout, i know some of you have seen it. Along with his PS and Expo. They're everywhere and I love it.
Hey Fellas! My name's Zach, I'm from Sioux Falls originally, but now live in Rapid City and attend SDSMT for mechanical engineering. Bought my first ford last year (a 90 ford f250) which I fixed up and traded off for a 77 highboy. Always wanted a truck with that setup (351/4speed/4x4 with disc breaks, manual everything, and straight axles.) Only problem is the box is unsavable with all it's rust, so now I'm on the search for a 57-66 ford truck with a good body so I can do a swap. Happy to be a part of FTE!
Thanks Rushmore! I'd love to take a look at it. I don't know that I have the skills for that quite yet, but I'd love to see how it works. If nothing else, my dad owns a controls and automation business back home. So I have a resource to call
