100% sure.

It was custom made by the previous owner of it and was used on a few of his different trucks over the time he owned it. I bought some years back and had it mounted on my 97 F350 Crew Cab. I removed it before I sold the truck and now it is buried under a few feet of snow and frozen to the ground.

I will live with the "ugly" bumper for a while. I want to focus on getting the truck on the road, then I will work on my bumpers.

No real progress, but I have been gathering a few parts.

I have most of what I need to install the electric fuel pump. Just need to gather some of the wiring components.

The wife bought me some new weatherstrippin for Christmas. Beltline, channel run and vent window, so the door windows should be all sealed up good once I get it installed.

If I would actually get off my duff, there really isn't much to do to make it drivable. Finish bleeding the brakes, get the bugs worked out of the hydroboost, adjust the carb, set the timing and a few other odds and ends.

Was busy last summer and fall with working on the house and getting it sold. Been busy this winter getting settled into the new place.

Hopefully I will have some time soon to work on it again. She looks mighty cold burried behind the snowbank....

Another seven months has passed, no major progress. Starting to sound like a broken record...

I have driven it a few times from across the road to the shop I work on it at.

Still need to dial a few things in, all the stuff listed in the post above...

The power steering pump is pretty noisy and sounds like it's under distress when the brakes are applied or the steering wheel is turned. The brake pedal has a weird feel to it as well, kind of hard to explain. It was a used unit out of a 1994 F450, along with the hydro boost valve. I think the valve is leaking internally, but only a little. When I was preparing the master cylinder for paint, I noticed a small drip of Type-F at the connection of the master cylinder and the hydro post.

I have a small leak at the water pump. I need to pull it, clean it up, paint it and seal her up with some new gaskets. I have all the parts, just got to find the time.

Now, on to the exciting news... Well, for me anyways.

I have been looking for a spare NP435 and NP205 that I could go through and freshen up. I finally l located a set. $300 for the pair, not too bad for up here. I get home in a couple weeks and am going to go pick them up. Once I go through them, I'll install them and then go through the current ones and have spares ready to go.

Hopefully more truck time will come soon...

nice build but,loose the front bumper and the mud flaps. Also,theres a way to keep it from rusting out ever again,lived in Michigan all my life and never had a truck rust. Buy a cheap automotive paint gun and spray your old motor oil into the doors,up under the box and cab and every nook and cranny there is, i do mine every fall and drive it all year round.GOOD LUCK

Thanks for the rust proofing idea.

The front bumper, rear bumper and mud flaps are all temp.

I have a nice stainless rear bumper that just needs a bit of work and I have some of the steel for my front winch bumper.

300 Sounds awful high for a 205 and a 435

There's not many folks selling a NP435 and Divorced NP205 designed to work with the early to mid 70's Fords. Not sure how long it's been since you looked for one, but $150 each didn't sound too bad to me.

Check out the NP205's on Craigslist in our area... $250-$450.
