1979 Ford F250 restore and converstion

Just picked up this truck today. I'm thinking I'm going to fix it up all nice and convert it into a short box 4x4. So we'll see how she goes.

I haven't purchased these, but found some at this site, 1986 Ford F350 Truck Super Cab Seat Cover Upholstery Set in Corinthian Vinyl at 1AAuto.com

Before you go and make it a short box, I'd just like to mention that I get a big grin on my face everytime I throw a full sheet of plywood in the back of mine and never drop the tailgate..............

I think I'm leaving it now I can't seem to find a short box for it at all around me and I found a really cheap long box so I'm thinking I'm going with that and get a 4x4 frame if I can find one
