I've acquired a 1961 Ford Unibody. It is straight, and runs well. We run a street rod shop in Salem, OR (bowersrodshop.com) so I have access to everything I need to make it as good as new (except the funding).
In High School I had a 66, but let it go because it was a long bead. Now I have this short bed, and I am going to hold onto it. I would like to have it ready for my son when he is ready to drive. I've always liked the yellow/white Moon Eyes truck. It is clean, crisp. and not to tricked out.
My plans, in order:
-Repair rust on floorboards and bed
-Change bench seat to buckets
-Off set wheels and drop a few inches
-Add power steering and tilt column
-Upgrade to 5.0 and automatic trans
I'll be asking for help throughout the process, as this appears to be the best reference on the web. I've already found some answers in past posts. I also hope to offer some insight if I can!
First, I need help filling out my profile with the trucks information, but I don't know if it is an F100, F150, etc. Can anyone help?
