Hot Rod 1967 Ford F-100 Project Comes Full Circle
Most builds as involved as this Ford F-100 take years to complete. But this one was finished in mere months!
Peruse the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forums, and you’ll immediately notice that there are countless projects/builds going on at any given time. And for good reason, of course. For starters, we all love showing off our builds and checking out what others are doing. We also love to lend a helping hand whenever possible. But while many builds often take years to complete, danman223 managed to complete this awesome 1967 Ford F-100 in mere months.
“I finally started to tear into the truck. Going to pull the motor, trans, and front suspension this week. Plans are CV front swap, Explorer rear, fresh interior, and some 18″ steel wheels with a good size lip in the rear. Picking up the CV front this weekend. The truck will keep the 352 and C6 in it for a couple of years. Down the road, it will either get a Lightning or Coyote swap. But for the 352/C6 setup, I don’t want to go too high of a gear. Truck will be a cruiser.”
Well, that’s one way to shortcut the process. And little time goes by before the OP has the engine, transmission, and interior ripped out. Days later, the OP finished the CV swap. It did take a little while to figure out the correct offset and wheel/tire sizing. But with all of the hard math finished and a Mustang sold to fund the project, things began to move along much more quickly.
Before you know it, new floors went in the cab and the truck was sporting a fresh paint job. And the OP soon found some fresh motivation to get his sweet 1967 Ford F-100 project finished ASAP.
“Hoping to get the bed off this weekend. Notch the frame, get the back half of the frame painted, and new hardware put in this weekend. Goal to have it back together and on the road is June 1. Elizabethton, TN is where my plant is. And every weekend is a cruise-in downtown. Police block it off and supervise it, but it happens every Saturday night from April through October. Wife, kids, and I checked it out this weekend and got my motivation up to spend the necessary money to move the project along.”
Unfortunately, a crack in the transmission put a quick halt to those plans. But otherwise, this project is essentially a wrap. Be sure and check out this cool Ford F-100 build in its entirety by heading over here!
