1965 F-100 Barn find

Good morning to all. I am a new member and wanted to introduce myself and my 65 barn find. I am in the process of a CV front end swap and it will be documented in my albums area.
Have a great day.

I'm keeping the 300 trashing the 3 speed..going to a beefed C4. Haven't got to the rear-end yet but will do an axle flip with no C-notch.

Keep the 3 speed. Build the 300. Be a legend. That's the route I'm going.

lol yes it was a great find but I did pay a bit more than I wanted...the ol rancher didn't really want to let loose of it but I wanted it. I actually was looking for a 64 but this one is in great shape and couldn't pass it up..

I think you're going to find that you'll have to C notch the frame with the axle flip. I flipped the axle in my '64 and had very little suspension travel before the axle hit the frame. I want to say it was about 3 inches. Not enough for real world driving in my opinion.

On another note, beautiful truck and a great find. Looking forward to watching your build...Pat

Atcoast, I saw in the other thread where you ask how far forward to move the CV suspension. I wanted to respond here and not hi-jack the other thread.

I moved mine one inch forward. Before drilling any holes in the frame we set it on the CV suspension put the front doghouse back on the truck and then moved the CV forward and back till I found the spot that I thought looked best. In the end the gap from the fender to the front edge of the tire is the same for the front tire as it is for the rear tire.

Good luck, Pat

I just want to stay away from the hump in the bed...not into that whole look..i want to keep a flat stock bed...and also I will not be loading my HD bagger in the bed or loading any big weight but I might put some pump ups back there just in case. But I'm about a month from that stage.

do you have a side pic so I can compare..i have searched and asked but no one has a side pic of a 1" fwd..i really don't want to put the clip back on..to check...im a one man show. If I have to I will do a mock up like you did and put the clip back up just to check it...
