    good to see Scotty.

    Was thinking of calling Mark, might have to give him a buzz and see what his plans are.

    I spot a Gnome too!

  5. Nice pics Scott but it's a 64 F100

    Rick it's a front end from a HQ - HZ Holden a local GM product here in Australia, similar to a Camaro front end.

    OK we need MORE info here. What powerplant are you planning for it? I assume it's the Ford and auto in the background but I couldn't ID it as your big arse was blocking it!
     
  7. Swifty, he's already turned it into half a holden with the HQ front end so it'll probably get some boggo 253....Speco valve covers and all! Right Binga?!

    Just make sure those brakes work.

    Ok cool I knew it wasnt a twin I beam hadnt looked at the cab close enough to see the 61-64 cab mounts instead of the 65-66 ones :D. I really really need to get my danged 62 in the garage and get to work . The cab looks really clean how bad was the rust before .

    Cool pics Scotty..... But tell us more... What Powerplant/Transmission will she be running
     
  12. I didn't really want to start a thread on my latest project, but now that Scott has outed me I'll come clean.
    A couple of years ago this 64 F100 was sitting in my good friend Geralds yard and he wanted to sell it so I stepped up to the plate and bought it.

    Here it is as I bought it sitting on a later model chassis

    It was a little rusty around the roof cap

    [​IMG]

  13. I bought what I thought was the right chassis for the pickup cab.

    [​IMG]

    And added a chassis graft from a local GM car, similar to a Camaro, to it.

    [​IMG]

  14. I had to make a new front chassis horn to replace the one that was missing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then weld them both on to the chassis graft to hold the front sheet metal up.

  16. I'm trying to get as much done as I can while Gerald is motivated.

    LOL. good luck.
     
  18. I bought a diff from a locally produced Ford product, XE Falcon,and mounted it.

    I forgot if your going low ya gotta notch the chassis

    [​IMG]

    In Australia we didn't get fleetside or stepside rear tubs but I managed to purchase a fleetside tub from a mate of mine that had just brought it in from the U.S.
    So it was time to mockup the body to see how everything fitted.

  20. One of the blokes I work with wanted to sell he's F350 and told me it had a 351 Cleveland and auto in it and it was at a price that I couldn't refuse so it came home with me.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So I pulled the motor and auto and welded on some motor mounts to the front end.
    To allow the motor to fit I had to use a Bronco style sump and when I fitted it I discovered that the motor was only a 302.
    Oh well looks like it will have to do.

    [​IMG]

    Motor and gearbox mounted

  21. Hahaha I was wondering how long before someone would say this.........:D
     
  22. To make the rear a little bit lower I moved the front spring hangers up and cut off the top of the hanger.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I found that this lowered the rear almost 1 inch with out weight on it.

    Next it was on to body work.
    I started by filling all the holes in the tub.

    [​IMG]

    I then used a 3m disc to get the tub back to bare metal.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I then had the bottom of top and bottom of the floor blasted and then I painted it in sealer.

    [​IMG]

    Ok I've had enough for tonight, more tomorrow.

    Dangit I dont see any rust other than the drip rails that need to be shaved anyways . Looks like its moving along nicely .


    Rick
     
  27. Keep the drip rails for the rain. Bugger having a wet truck.
     
  28. Ok so this is what I did with the drip rails.
    First I had the cab blasted all over except for the roof, it was oil canning already and I didn't want to do anymore damage if I could help it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I then cut out all of the rusted area's around the roof cap.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I then started patching up the effected area's

    [​IMG]

  29. looks like a fairly tidy effie, not an easy find:rolleyes:. nice work
     
  30. A mate had a station wagon rusting away in his backyard that had rust free drip rails so I cut them out with some extra sheet metal, so no pics of this operation.
    So with a little cutting,welding and grinding the drip rails are replaced.
