1965 ford crewcab


Bought my dream truck last week figured I would share it. It had a 1995 Cummins in it with the 5speed and front Dana 60 and Dana 70 rear out of a 85 ford. Going to be headed to body shop next week to get drivers door fixed.

Cool truck. It's a BEAST! Glad to see someone used the large opening fenders. The 2WD fenders never look quite right on 4WD trucks to me. Looking good. How about an under the hood pic?

I'm more of a 2wd and stock height guy, but there is no getting around it...that is the coolest custom job I've ever seen...and with a Cummins...dang gone that is awesome !!!

Oh ok thanks I'm used to the powerstrokes,, it runs really good but it has a lot of leaks,, I have a buddy that confirmed your statement too of 89-91 said I should upgrade a late 90s 12v or find a wrecked 6.7 to pull out of.

Negative. You have a great engine. The only thing I might change is to add an intercooler. The early VE pumped engines normally get a little better mileage than the later ones.
