    Hey man. The truck was on 79 between Leitchfield and Morgantown. I know the guy has a blue camaro for sale in the front yard and has a 70 or so buick convertible as well. It is on the East side of the road. I can't find the number, sorry.

    Well, to tell you the truth I thought that the shell would be worth more as trading stock. How bad is it, I weld for a living, that is if you want to part with it.

    If the price is right I'd say you may have it sold. The only wood grain I have left is the glove box cover, sorry. As far as seat, I wound up pulling one from a junk yard for my '48. Lost the original in the divorce. Since it has a 390 I'm assuming it is a '73-'76 unless it is a transplant. I have a new 79-79 grill shell still in the box if your interested.

    Ya only thing i would advise would be to get a heavier front axle. Even the HD 44s like to have balljoint problems when running slightly bigger tires, and the idi aint no powder puff on the scale. Our bucket scale claimed 1080 but no idea how accurate it is. That was w/out oil antifreeze and PS pump. For comparison, a 400 is around 640ish and a 460 aound 720

    At the risk of sounding pushy, what do you plan to strip? Will there be any body left? What motor/ tranny does it have? Any idea what you may want for it? I'm looking to paint one copper and black and put it on the rolling chassis of my daily driver with all of my new interior and misc parts. Then put my current (white/blue) body on the diner and make it my daily. What are you needing? I MAY have a few spare parts I could let go of but I really don't have what I used to. Any more most of what I have collected is '48-'50 F1.

    For the most part i didnt. I waited to get ahold of a 79 F350 with the king-pin D60 and went from there. The stock springs didnt care for it much but only dropped about an inch, it was on the bumps you noticed the difference. I went to SD springs from an 01 CC psd and while it did sit 1.5" higher, they were about the same stiffness. Right now im running the SD springs with my factory bottom spring under them, and a 2" shackle / hanger lift. You could definately run the diesel with stock suspension as a driver, but i like to get a little wild with it and being even modestly lifted the body roll was pretty bad with no anti-sway bar.
