    Great truck you have there. I'm biased as I've got one waiting in the wings for a redo after I get some other stuff done. Mine won't be stock but I'm betting your does just fine since your rebuild everything. Be sure to post some pictures after it comes home from the paint booth.

    You can't beat a nice F-1. I bought mine in 1979 and still have it. Enjoy it.
