New Addition

Well I am bringing in a new addition to the Ford family. My coworker found a 1977 F150 Explorer 2WD. The only downside it has a 400 in it. It was owned bye his friends grandpa, and the only rust on it is around the wheel wells on the bed.
I am reeeaaaaly hoping to pick her up this week. My 71 is going to the scrap yard in Axtell so its a win/lose.

As a side note this kids grandma drove a 77 F250 4WD with a lift and 33's. I think she would have been fun to meet.

That 77 F150 is going to be a great truck. What don't you like about the 400? Those motors can be made into something special if you wanted too. IMO, aside from a 460, those 400s are great motors.

I bet that 77 F250 4x4 was a highboy with the factory 4" lift. That is also an awesome truck.

The downside for me was I wanted to use the smallblock thats in my 71 if it needed an engine. I dont know exactly whats wrong with it yet but the engine is not froze. I have another 400 found incase i need it.

I have a digital camera now so I will post pics when I get her home.

I have a 400 in a 78 Bronco that has an edelbrock intake and 4 barrel. It's not exactly a hot rod, but has good power and does ok off roading.
