71 super custom

Just picked up a 71. 2 wheel drive. Factory air PS power brakes. Going to just get it up and running and use it for a truck.

This is it. The previous owner put updated wheels and rear bumper on it. I'm going to look for some steel wheels with dog dishes and the right bumper.

Eventually I'm going to use it to tow the boat.

Looks fairly solid, has it been lowered?

I think it has. It looks like they removed a leave from the rear. The front I'm not sure of.

This is not going to be a frame off resto. Just the basics to make it a driver. And reliable. It does need some love. But I'm pumped about it. I've wanted one for a long time. I had been looking for long bed trucks but this one checked all the right boxes

Its stance looks to have definitely been lowered a little. They generally have the full tire exposed , not tucked in the fender well.
You have a real good starting base there.

Nice truck, it's got potential just take your time, be patient , BUT don't get discouraged with it, although they can throw you for a loop or two at times, and PLEASE remember to have fun while working on it, for these old trucks can be a lot of fun, and part of that fun is going to the junkyards and salvage yards, you'll also hear terms like Bump, Bumpside, Dent, and Dentside . Bump and Bumpside are slang terms that refer to the 1967- 1072 body style and that Dent Dentside are slang terms for the 1973-1979 body style . 1974 was the first year for the Super Cab, 1975 was the first year of the F-150, which was a heavier GVW half ton to get away from the unleaded fuel and emissions, and 1978 was the first year for the Ranger Lariat which was the luxury model, and 1079 was the first year that required the use of unleaded fuel in the full line of Ford trucks due to stricter emissions regulations. Hopefully you'll find this helpful to you. And welcome to the ole FTF, and another website / forum that you might find useful and informative is http://www.fordification.com which is strictly 1967 to 1972 Ford trucks.

This will be a fun project. I built a rocker crawler from the ground up. This one will not be anything that hardcore. Just little things to make it a fun runner

Big Jim. That's great advice and info. I built a rock crawler CJ7 from the ground up. I have no desire to do that again till I own a shop or garage to work out of.
