Finished complete restoration.

Started as a 79 w/ 300-6 and 4spd 4x4. Took body and engine out of a donor 78 4x2. Is now a 78 4x4 w/ 302 and 4spd.

Uploaded two finished pics in my gallery.

Sorry guys I haven't been around as much as I used to but I'm just so busy between work,skool,and fixing my trucks its just complete chaos.

Anyway I did get around to install the headers on my 75 F-100.It wuz worth every penny,blood,sweat,and heartache put into it.Sounds better,runs better.Got a set of chrome 15inch wheels going on it tommorow and and a bedliner going in.And I'm gonna install the dual exhaust off my 78 F-150 on to it too.
I'm making progress.
Dan

Well, I guess its FINALLY my turn, while not totally completed, its close enough I can post in here, you can still see exhaust hanging down for example, hey, cut me some slack, Ive waited 3 years to post in a thread like this (is anything ever really complete with these trucks anyway? )

You can see how this truck started out by looking in my gallery.....

I finally got a few pics in my gallery of my 1977 F250 Highboy. I've pretty much did a frame off restoration. I've worked on it for 3 years on and off. Other then one friend doing a little welding and a few neighbors helping set body parts on and off, all the work has been done by me, other then Quick O Muffler doing the exhaust system.

Mods include a built 78 460 out of a 78 Lincoln with a C6 tranny, 78 79 power steering conversion with Borgeson Steering Shaft, 17 gallon stainless steel over the axle gas tank from www.fatfendered.com , L&L shorty headers with 3" aluminized pipe & round stainless Dynomax Ultaflow mufflers, B&M Light Truck Mega Shifter, Grant Steering Wheel, 058 Eagle Alloy Wheels, Chrome Fey Bumpers & chrome pushbar, 4 core Desert Cooler Radiator, external transmission cooler & powersteering cooler, the list goes on with many items from Broncograveyard, LMC & Ebay.

I wouldn't be on the road today if it weren't for all the great help from this forum. You guys have been the best help and inspiration of all. Thanks So Much and GGGOOOOOOO Big Blue Oval!!!!

Got all my pics up finally in my gallery. Since I'm brand new to the board I figure anything I've done is new to this site, so I've included pics from a couple years ago of my intake/carb upgrade to edebrock performer 400 intake manifold and holley 650cfm 4V carb.

Otherwise, the truck's all stock, original paint and upholstery (except a pinstriped tailgate and some misc. decals, etc.). Also have pics of the American Racing "Hopster" wheels I put on last year.

Enjoy, and leave me some comments!

All done except for the ext paint. Look in the gallery show to see. (High Boy).
This is the first rig I ever drove and it was while sitting on my dads lap in 77. He purchased this truck new. I got it last year. I will never get rid of this truck. Unless the offer is too great to turn down. A million maybe...lol. Enjoy!

Finally got it painted

I finally painted my 77 F100 Flat black and I posted a few pics in "my 77" gallery. It feels good to have a truck all one color again.

Well its finally finished after 14 months and combined 1100 hours between myself and my buddy who painted the truck. Its a 79 F150 4x4 long bed that I completely restored from the bare frame up with a 300-6 RV cam 1.7 Chevy rockers Clifford 4bbl intake and 390cfm Holley; Np435/205 D44/9" 3.50 gears posi rear and ls front; epoxy primer 2005 F250 red 2 stage paint; filled cowl vents and body seam between door and rear window. My gallery should be updated soon but I have dial up so it takes forever to post pics. Any questions or comments please ask away.

Hey STGFordCrazy04, I'm from St George, too. Only this one is in southern Utah. Finishing my 43rd year in college teaching and, upon retirement, will enter the college automotive program on a senior citizen tuition. Then we start the restoration of my '74 F100 Explorer. So far; new interior, with stock valour seats, have replaced the old ram-type power steering with '78 Bronco, changed full time 4 wheel drive with Warn lockouts, replaced the 390 with a 428 (not Cobra) and rebuilt the C-6. Oh, if I could find an overdrive conversion. At 75 MPH I show 3500 rpm. With Edelbrock 750 and Offenhauser high-rise that's good for 13 MPG on a calm day. I have to use 91 octane so we don't take "Frieda Fordtrucker" on many long trips. Anyway, after next June I'll start the bodywork. Will return to the metallic blue with white trim. Wheels and tires are stock '74 except for chrome rings and standard ford wheel covers. Last winter I shot the bed with Rhino liner and installed chrome rails on the bed. What I want is a super clean stock '74 that can pull my 28 foot Fiberform to Lake Mead and Lake Powell.
