My 1968 F-100

We grew up together. Dad bought her brand new the year I was born.

Here she is when I was going to college:

Her she is today:

She a '68. Came new with a 240 and three on the tree. I put a 351W ahead of the three speed, then swapped in a C-6, then took all that out and slid in a hopped up 360 with a street-strip C-6, then swapped all that for a complete '72 Torino running gear - 351 Cleveland/FMX/2.75:1 gears.

It's got power discs on the front and power steering from a '79.

Had a lot of "firsts" in that ol' truck. I plan to fix 'er up when times are better.

Rangoon red and wimbelton white, a classic combination. I think Mitch used to say that was the only red / white truck with a red top he'd ever seen.

Paraphrasing Jeff after his first ride in that truck, "Man! Mitch just flies down those gravel roads with his thumb hooked in the steering wheel! I was hanging on to the back of the seat and the door for dear life while my feet swung back and forth through the turns!"

Love that body style, it was that style or the 61-66 style when I was lookin to buy one, just so happens I found the 66 first.
It's great that your truck has stayed in the family all those years, will be nice once restored.

The body looks like it's still in great shape, a new paint job and some nice rims and she will look in her prime again. In those early pictures she was a shape truck.
