Okay, I have finally found basically what I am looking for.

It's a 1967 Mercury M100 (just like a Ford with different name), with
basically a PERFECT body for me to switch over onto my 71 f2504wd chassis.

I am probably going to buy yet another one, an M250, for parts, which is a
rust-bucket but has lotsa nice little parts, lenses, handles, stuff, etc.
BTW it also seems to have a very nice windshield washer bag which I probably
won't need, so if somebody needs lemme know. Ditto, Ken, if you still need
the choke handle.

OK. Here's the list of questions:

1. How do I get the parking lights to work full time? Do I just swap
in the switch from my 71?

2. I figure on switching bodies, rather than axles transfer cases etc.
Is this the preferred method? I recall recommending this to somebody but
just want to make double sure. If the frames are the same (which I totally
doubt) then it may be easier the other way?

3. My 71 has a NP transmission I think, it weighs about 200 lb, it has
3 gears plus a granny first, and the reverse is right and down. The 67 has
a warner I think, it also has a granny but reverse is right and up. The
reverse lights are operated by a dash switch not a tranny switch. Any real
difference and shud I keep one over the other? The NP has been rebuilt, but
the Warner seems quieter.

4. The M100 has a rebuilt 5-bolt Dana 44. Is there any use for this
axle? Are they any good? This one is limited slip, too. How much would it
be worth? It has also been rebuilt.

5. Anybody have a good way of hooking up intermittent wipers without an
ugly knob?

6. Both 67's run (ahem) 352's. Are they useful for anything but
paperweights? I would like to drop in a 390, how much diff is there between
a car and truck 390, and which shud I choose?

7. The good 352 has headers. These shud bolt up to a 360 or 390 (non
gt), no?

8. How much is a decent 8-bolt Dana 60 worth, second hand?

9. Is the brake booster on a 100 and a 250 different?

10. My brakes on the 71 f250 are manual. Can I slip a booster behind
the m/c? Is all I will need the different length plunger?

11. Are there any useful parts from the 352 that I can swap over to a
390? Except the block?

Thanks for your advice in advance. I'll keep you posted, and mail in before
and after pictures together with my site donation!! (which reminds me Ken
please email me the list's snail mail address for me to donate, and to get a

Subject: Ford Master Parts Catalog

Hi All
Just recently recieved a copy of Obsolete Ford parts catalog for 66-77
Bronco's and up to 79 in trucks. WOW is all I can say. This catalog is a
must if you own a 79 or older truck. I love it because it actually has
stuff in it for 73-79's. But the greatest part is they have shop
manuals,wiring diagrams,&master parts catalogs. I posted a while back on
trying to find a master parts catalog for 73-79 and they have it for
325.00 (not a bad price considering all the part numbers I'll have
access to once I can afford to buy it.) This catalog is a MUST have.

You obviously aren't far enough west. The People's Democratic Republic
of Memphis has smog checks as well as one of practically every tax known
to modern man.

Of course, Memphis is more of a cancer than a real city...
