1967 F250 Camper Special Project

Hello forum!

Been lurking for a while and finally joined after purchasing my first Ford last week. It's a 1967 F250 Camper Special! First some pictures:











So I've been in the market for a 5th or 6th gen for a while, I want a truck for hauling & towing and I love the style of the old bump sides. I was looking for a '67 (smog exempt in Vegas) that could tow a ski boat with gear up to the lake, and maybe down the road get a travel trailer to cruise around North America in. My criteria was basically clean frame, relatively rust-free, and a solid running truck and I think I did OK.

This baby is a 2WD (I got a Jeep XJ for when I want to hit the trails), the 352 V8, auto tranny, drums front and rear with what looks like an upgraded brake booster, and... that's about it. Everything else looks to be about stock on it . Only 7463 miles on the odometer

I paid $3000 in cash, which was right in the neighborhood of what they were looking to go for in my area. It runs strong, but has a lot of little things to work on. Here's my list so far of what I want to do:

Little Items:
-Engine and tune-up (oil & filter, air filter, replace some leaky gaskets, coolant flush, carb clean & tune)
-Spare tire mount (the spare is currently bouncing around in the bed)
-Gas gauge wiring is all disconnected, I'll want to know what's in my tank.
-Fuel selector valve is currently a ball valve handle, I'm thinking of changing it but I don't know, maybe I'll keep the Mad-Max aesthetic
-Driver side door is hard to shut, looks like the hinge or pin is broken.
-Passenger side window has trouble rolling down and up, I think it needs a new mechanism.
-Sand down and paint over the various scratches and dings to prevent rust.

Big Items:
-Aftermarket A/C (it gets hot in Vegas! )
-Disk swap in the front, although it stops OK with the drums it has currently.

Thanks for reading this far, you all are an awesome community! Let me know how I did. Also, if any of you want to decode my VIN to check my axle I'd appreciate it. Going by the decoder looks to be a Dana 60 3.73 gears?

I'd do some tranny flush or fluid & filter change. May be add at a tranny cooler and temp gauge so you can monitor it's temp.

my 02 cents

Thanks for the responses. It has a tranny cooler and temp gauge already, which are going to be great for towing. It's leaking some oil from the trans plate, hopefully the gasket just needs to be replaced. I'm planning on a fluid, filter, & gasket change. What's involved with flushing the tranny, are there any good writeups you can point me to?

From looking around I drain it by dropping the pan and fill it at the dipstick? I've only found one dipstick on the engine, I'll try to post pictures tonight. The trans looks to be the cruise-o-matic 3 speed. I ordered my owner's manual, should be here on Wednesday, the truck didn't come with one .

Also, does felpro or lubelocker sell those nice rubber gaskets for this trans?

Cheers for the advice and well wishes!

Welcome to FTE

F25 = F250 2WD

Y = 352 2V

R = San Jose CA Assembly Plant.

B57202 = 1967.

131" Wheelbase.

MJ: M = Wimbledon White / J = Rangoon Red.

F254 = F250 2WD .. 6,900 lbs. GVWR

E81: E = Red Petticrush Vinyl & Red Leeds Pattern Woven Plastic / 81 = 81B Custom Cab.

G = MX Cruise-O-Matic.

C8 = Dana 60 Rear Axle / 3.73-1 / Limited Slip / 5,200 lbs. Rear Axle Capacity.

6,900 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

172 net HP @ 4,000 RPM

74 = Seattle WA Ford District Sales Office, where the original selling dealer ordered the truck from.

Based on what I see in the pics (filler tube/fuel cap located above the scallop (Bumpside) line, shield in the bed to protect the tube from possible cargo damage), your truck has the optional 25 gallon auxiliary fuel tank.

The manually operated fuel tank selector valve is located on the left side of the floor pan, adjacent to the drivers side of the seat.

The selector switch mounted under the dash to a bracket, only changes the dash fuel gauge from one tank to the other.

Note: The MX Cruise-O uses a different filter and pan gasket than the FX & FMX Cruise-O's that were mostly installed in cars.

Thanks for the breakdown, that's what I had figured except for the diff, didn't know it was the limited slip. That's a nice little surprise!

So I took it out for a spin this morning, and it was running rough. Long time to start, stalling under load, almost stalling around turns . I'm sure part of the reason is I have to learn how to drive this old truck, the only other vehicle with a carb I drove was my 250CC dual sport!

It was running better after it had warmed up, but regardless I'd like to do a carburetor rebuild and clean. Anyone have any good videos / writeups on that, or are they all pretty much the same? Looks to be the stock 2 barrel carb that came with the truck. I've done small engine carb rebuilds, are they pretty much the same concept? I'll verify what carb I'm working with when I get to the truck tonight.

If the carb is the original, your truck has the Auto-Lite 2100 series 2V carburetor:

D4AZ-9A586-A (replaced C2AZ-9A586-B) .. 2100 series Auto-Lite (1962/72) & Motorcraft (1973/74) 2V Carburetor Kit (Motorcraft CT-499-D) / Available from Ford & auto parts stores.

ALL 1962/74 V8 Passenger Car/F100/350; 1966/74 Bronco; 1969/74 Econoline.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The MX Cruise-O-Matic uses a different (larger) filter (B9MP-7A098-B) & pan gasket (has a notch on one side) than the FX & FMX Cruise-O's that were mostly installed in cars.

Most chain auto parts store parts guys in todays world are unaware of this. The MX pan gasket (B5SZ-7A191-A) is the same as 1955/57 Thunderbird with Ford-O-Matic.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the end of the window regulator is a stud, the nylon window roller (C0AB-6423240-B) clips to the stud, then fits into the window channel that the glass is adhered to.

The roller breaks, the window binds up or falls down to the bottom of the door. The roller has been repro'd and is EZ to find, as it was also used on 1965/66 Mustang.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
They look the same, but looks can be deceiving! 1967 F100/350's use some unique parts that are different than 1968/72 F100/350's.

1967: You push the inside door handles forward to lock the doors, 1968/72's have door lock *****.

1967 only: Door shells, window regulators, door lock remote controls, door latches, inside window & door handles, vent window frames & handles, door lock cylinder rods, arm rests, door trim panels.

1967/72 same: Weatherstrips, glass, upper/lower hinges, outside door handles, vent window division bars, door lock cylinders.

If local auto parts stores don't have the filter and pan gasket, either JEFFFAFA or myself may be able to find them NOS

At one time, don't know about today, the window roller was also available from auto parts stores. But all the repro parts sellers have it.

C0AB-6423240-B .. Nylon Window Roller: 1961/66 F100/1100; 1967/69 F100/750 // 1960/64 Galaxie; 1960/65 Falcon; 1961/66 T-Bird; 1962/65 Fairlane; 1965/66 Mustang; 1966/72 Bronco.

The R & L window regulators are obsolete, and were only available from Ford originally.

C7TZ-8123200-A .. Right Window Regulator / Obsolete ~ 1967 F100/750 only.

CARPENTER NOS OBSOLETE PARTS in Concord NC has 28 = 800-476-9653.

No Ford dealer, no other obsolete parts vendor has any.

On the C0AB642320B window rollers I suggest you get N.O.S Ford ones. Usually the aftermarket ones are made out of plastic. The Ford ones were made out of nylon. Both should be lubricated with grease but plastic is more grabby and nylon more slippery. When you call these guys to get your best price for parts and freight, ask and make sure they are selling you NOS Ford.

C0AB-6423240-B = First part number I memorized.

Mustang's Etc in Van Nuys is another high buck outfit like Bob "snake" Allen Ford.

'Ol Arnold has been squeezing the first nickel he ever earned...so long, that Chief Big Tree and the buffalo disappeared decades ago.

So I grabbed a rebuild kit and took out the carb and disassembled it after work today. The parts are currently sitting in the solution. The thing's pretty dirty, hopefully cleaning it will help improve my throttle response and start. Once I get the truck running better I can start scouring the local junkyard for parts.





Found the trans dip stick too!

Git-R-Dun.
This pic is of a little later Autolite 2V. Real close to yours except yours doesn't have #1,#2,and #84 through #88.
When you're putting it back together don't forget #74 and #73. Also make sure you clip #9 in to the groove in #13.

Thanks for the drawing Jeff, matches the one that came with the rebuild kit pretty closely. I got it rebuilt and put back together last night, I'll be putting it back on the engine and running hopefully tonight. We're in the middle of a heat wave here in Vegas and it's killing me!
