Greetings All,

My ID plate:

F10K7L13286
118 T 30 H A 01
05000 145 4100

History:

I bought it in March 2017, from the Denver Center for the Perfoming Arts - Theater Company, for $300.00 dollars. I work there as a stagehand. They bought it as a prop two or three years earlier for a show called Sweet and Lucky and never tried to get it running. It was not running when I got it, so I thought I couldn’t make it not run any more. It was the perfect first project. It now starts and idles. I am in the process of putting power disc brakes on it now. Next is the clutch hydraulics.

Thank you,

Matt Wagner

I have the F600 version of that in the exact same color !! I will post some pics later.

1960 LWB Custom Cab Modified

Hi! My son gave me a 1960 F100 with a 1982 Mustang GT 5.0 engine with a 600 cfm Holly 4bbl. It was a barn find and has only 38,000 original miles. VIN F10COR21999

1960 F100 Styleside, #21,999 of 118,209 mfg.

1982 Mustang GT 5.0 engine

Refurbished interior with Dakota Instruments dash

Rebuilt and reupholstered original seat
I am about $17,000 into the restoration. Rebuilt T5 Mustang Borg Warner transmission, new clutch, new exhaust, new lifters, new radiator and water pump, new seat rebuild and cover, new headliner, sun visors and arm rests. New Dakota Digital dash instruments. Still need to upgrade the front brakes to discs, get a tailgate, and paint. The engine and transmission can definitely perform better than the suspension and brakes. I have had it eight years and have put 1,600 miles on it; still road-testing for mechanical repairs and upgrades. Depending on how I drive it, the gas mileage ranges from 9.5 to 12 mpg. As they say, I am not building it for the mileage! So far, so good!
