1965 Truck...

hey there,

my name is Yaril, i found this forum cause i am currently building a 65 Truck for a local guy. so i thought i would show you guys what i am doing... his goals are to have the truck lay frame on 20 / 22 (not my choice of wheels i like old wide whites). well guess ill just post pics and info as i go. any comments or advice is welcome. here goes...

here is the truck as arrived to me:



wasting no time i take the whole front end appart:



front cap off and motor ready to go too:



motor gone now the huge cross-member can be eliminated for the MII:



cross-member gone, made plates to box the frame:



boxed, MII tacked in place (notice i raised the cross-member & top hats 1" for more slam):



lowered the front bumper 1" to meet the splash pan:



welding the MII to the frame:



more welding:



frame almost ready, still need to pipe notch for R/P and install shock mounts & motor mounts:



302 to be rebuilt but currently going to use it for mock up when the T5 gets here:



well thats all for the last 3 days ive worked on this. it will slow down a bit cause ill be waiting on parts. going to do a 4-link and step knotch on the rear so i may tear that down soon.

thanks!
Yaril

I second the very nice welds, but those wheels are soooooooooo ugly!

Welcome to ( FTE ) !



Very nice job, the Welds are outstanding, that ( M-2 ) crossmember you Fabbed up is so

( Professional ) and I'm sure it's stronger than the Factory one ! Now those

( AFTERMARKET ) Uppers and lowers are real nice pieces and strong !

Now here on fte theres been a lot of trash talk about the use of ( Pinto/mustang 2 )

( ( STYLE ) ) Front end ! I really hope that these ( COOL ) Pictures will help members

See that most installers are installing ( AFTERMARKET ) ( Pinto/mustang 2 ) ( Style )

Front ends !


P.s. Just this week a member said to another would you put a ( PINTO ) FRONT END
IN your Truck ?????????????

My answer to that NOW that they can see what most installers are talking about is

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....HE! ! yeah !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Millions of DRAG RACERS can't be wrong !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

Drag racers only go straight. I still wouldn't use a M II suspension no matter how purty the parts are.
This is nice workmanship though.

How many millions of those drag racers have installed Pinto/Mustang II front ends on F Series trucks?

How many millions of those drag racers drive their Pinto/Mustang II equipped vehicles on the street?

A front end designed for a 2,000 lb. Pinto/Mustang II is woefully in-adequate for a 4500 lb. truck.

Garbz2 and I disagree on some things, but when it comes to the weak Mustang II front ends...we do agree that they should not be used.

tylordurbin,
Welcome to FTE,
I was noticing how accurate your cuts are. Are you using a plasma cutter in the fabing of your metal? I've been using the cutoff wheel and my 4 inch grinder along with a sawsall and its not anywhere as clean looking as your work. Your welds are top notch. Keep the pictures coming.

wow, good morning! thanks for all the great feedback guys! ill try and address each of your comments...

the welds. its sorta meditation for me. i zone into it, turn off the radio the cell phone, its like going out for a cruise with your friends. i focus on each and every weld as if it was the only weld.

this truck. its not my style either. i like lowered cars / trucks but in a more traditional way. i dont mind airbags, but preffer a permanent slam. this truck as i have seen on this site do look good (to me) when lowered. the wheels are totally not my thing! wow, i wish it had some nice white walls or 60's drag looking wheels. to each their own i guess. if the owner likes it and spent money on it thats all that matters in the aesthetics.

the MII. i wont go into whats better or worst. ive done a couple of them and it has its pros and cons. in the end what the truck will be used for can determine which route you want to take. the fact that the truck is a 4500 lbs vs a car thats 2000 to me isnt comparable. this truck will not way 4500 lbs when finished and that car does not way 2000 lbs. i dont want this thread to become one of those threads. the kit is from TCI and is very very well built. it will suite this truck in its needs just fine. those needs are for the owner to enjoy his ride on the street while cruising with his friends. no hauling things or drag racing. just a comfy driver.

as for the question about cutting. for now i use a 4.5" cut off wheel. thats all i got. it makes accurate clean cuts. i am looking into a plasma but not in a real hurry.


thanks everyone for the kind comments! i love what i do and i just hope it shows.

ill post more pics as parts arrive and i move forward.

This is inspiring. I'm in the process of re-doing my 66. I took it down to the frame, but this really shows me what's possible beyond that. Thanks a bunch for taking time to do this.
