Nice looking ride Cody! Color choice is classy but low key to keep the sleeper potential. Just another great choice during this build. Glad you stuck to it.

I'm concerned about the Toyota bar in the front, looks like 2" mild steel tube. Will it protect the radiator and front end in a minor scrunch? Shoot some cement in there and cap the ends, make it solid protection.

For the '58 how about leave the OBS frame full length and fit a ginormous flatbed with 10' tool boxes down the sides? Minimal engineering and a rich plumber would lust after it.

Cody the truck turned out "Beautiful" Of course great job engineering the whole thing. But I really like a few of the little detail things that make it "Sweet"
First of all color choice was classy, headlights give you a clue this isn't grandpa's truck and of course the door badges will make most guys go
"What the.... "

Thanks for sharing it with us !!

That, and the sound of the PSD as it drives by.

I hope it has a 4" exhaust - to get that turbine whistle out there. Maybe I'm weird, but that would be the ultimate - a '73 pickemup with a turbo whistle at idle.

I didn't figure that a new thread was necessary but here's a teaser of the next 7.3L project:

Somehow I missed this thread when it first started, and all of the in-process pictures are gone ... Beautiful truck, well done.

Did you start a new thread on the 94.5 97 forum? And can you link it for us?

Nope, not yet. Once I have the new heart sitting on the floor I'll get to head to the other forum....but I won't start a new thread over there until it's at least moving under its own power (which will be 1996-based). The new project does not consist of either of the earlier pickups pictured. I decided I like air conditioning and a comfy ride a lot better than a noisy, rough pickup (and with a family, four doors are much better than a regular cab - since I already have two of those anyway).

So you're telling us that while you can shoehorn an SD chassis under a '73 F100, you can't manage to stuff the aircon/heater suitcase from the '95 onto the firewall of either of those two beautys??
At least pull it off the '95 and see how much room it will take up in the engine bay. I have no idea if it's doable, but it's only time, right?

LOL! Listening to you tease your audience....


I won't spoil the surprise, but if you are as victorious with your next PSD transplant as you were with the blue '73, it will indeed be one of your crowning automotive achievements.


Picked up the yellow card last night after hours, and will collect the package on Monday.

268Fords is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Somehow I missed the original thread on this too. Kind of bummed all the pictures aren't with it anymore.

These older trucks (highboy style) with their 7.3's in them just make me drool. I love the look of the truck and put that with the 7.3 sound and power, man that is a dream truck.

It would hurt my face too much from smiling if I had something like this in my garage...

I cleaned out the shop today and drove the next project victim into it. I was blessed enough to have the funds (and ample fuel supply from work) to purchase a new waste oil heater in September. This project will challenge me but with a warm shop it will be a far more pleasant build than the 1973/2002 merger.

"Teaser" pic.

The engine is sitting in the engine compartment. It's not bolted down but it's setting where it will be when done.
