There's something about your truck that I loooooooooove too. Something about it just screams TOUGH to me. I dunno really what it, but she looks like a good ol' tough work horse.[/QUOTE]

That's what she was before I bought her. Just an old farm truck. Still not much more. She needs a bed, doors , cab corners, anti-rattle kits and on and on. But like I said she gets the job done.

the scoop was on it when i got it but it loooks like a mercury cougar scoop that just gets studs through the hood and nuts on the underside.

before i got a truck i had the plan to get a boss 429 scoop and cut it down to about 2" but this was as good or better so it stayed.

Here it is from this last summer dieing a slow death. I'll redo it someday...hopefully soon. It was my very first vehicle.

Dennis, that pic you have in 1978 4 months after you bought it, looks like it should be on a Ford Truck Brochure/advertisement.

The truck looks at good now as it did then. Other than replacing the wheels, did you do any other work to it?


Havi, you still have a good project there someday. As Ben said, looks like it was a fun truck.
