    Goddamn right. My '65 F250 4X4 is all truck. Manual Gemmer steering, NP435 4 speed, 4.56 gears, manual brakes 33" tires and everything is original but the engine, which is about 250 hp stronger (minus any nitrous) than the original.

    I drove it to work for 10 years, ran it stupid hard, its still sitting here as 4-square as it ever was, and if I could see I would still be driving it. I still love it. Yeah it steers hard, rides rough, is in tip top mechanical shape and has way too stupid much power. Wait a minute isn't that the definition of a hot rod?

    just surfing around and found this ol' thread :cool:


    That was me, I sold that beauty to a collector from Oregon. jj had some interest in it at one time but I think he thought I was asking too much....no worries. That was a fine truck and I was almost positive it was one of the trucks in that video.
    later

    Cool video, I looked for a napco, colman, or marmon-herrington conversion chevy or ford for a few years with no luck before I decided to build one to use as a daily.

    The guy who posted those trucks hasn't been here since December 2008, so he probably won't see your message...

    They're cool but if I had to lay down serious cash for a rolling chassis just to convert one of my trucks to a 4X, I'd personally choose newer, stronger running gear at a better price.

    Love that video. Before the interwebs were invented, I actually bought a copy on VHS.
