Well I wanted to post some pics of my first full size. I bought it off my brother back in Feburary so it's been I little while since I got it.


Ok can anyone guess what the truck is under tarp number 1?





Well if you guessed a 1965 f350 then you were right.


Ok well she's got a 352 and a np435.
The bed is an 11' flatbed
Plans are to use it to haul firewood. outta do a little better than the ranger
okay here some more




In case 10 leaves weren't enough theres a factory 5 leaf overload.


Wish they still used this horn button


From what I hear she hasent rolled over yet.

If you put one of them in the bed!

I have a '66 F-250 and a '66 F-100. Both have FE's, a 352 and a 360. Love these trucks!
I had a '65 F-100 many moons ago that had a '65 fuelie 327 w/turbo 400. That truck would scream!

Default Update

Ok so finally got a little bit done so figured time for some pictures

Finally got the hood ornament/badge and the aluminum headlight bezels put on. The original ones for this truck were steel and painted white to match grille.

I think it makes the truck look much more complete but a windshield would probably help some too.



The brakes are being addressed as they currently don't work. I have just finished replacing the rear soft line and hard line and have three more pieces up front to do. Dad and I are also replacing the wheel cylinders. But haven't quite got that done yet.
Heres the front drum pulled off.

And the spindle and brake comonents


List of things that have been completed.
Rebuilt carb
New upper&lower radiator hoses
New thermostat
New heater hoses
New brake booster hose
The bezels and hood orament
Dual thrush turbo's (sound pretty damn good but not to loud)
Plus the little bit of brake line work.

Still needs:
Rear lights
Windshield
Tires

It's nice finally tearing into it some though, can't wait to ge her on the road.
