    i picked that one up for 700 bucks. i put out a search through a wrecking yard and he said he found one in montana for 1500, just the cab and back doors. . so i got a list of every junk yard in montana and started calling. sure enough got a call from the same wrecker and said 700 for the whole truck!! i started with a 63 but theres just not enough leg room, about a week after i picked it up a buddy who lives less than 1/2 a mile from me said there was one up the street from him. sure shit 65 crewcab on a V10 4X4 chassis!! here is a pic of when i got mine home

    Well, I guess the one big advantage to owning a smaller truck is that I can park where I want! my 65 has...will have...power steering..the parts are there just not on the truck yet. Ive been in the middle of a front end swap from a 75 with disc brakes.

    gonna be sweet. my daily driver is a 01 super crew... guess I dont really need another crew....but I guess I could drive a 65 crew instead of the 01!?!? Wonder what my wife would say?

    El Polacko's is one of the best I've seen. Twin turboed now, if it's still the same as when he brought it out for the Roundup. Too cool.

    nice link and nice trucks. Something Im looking to see right now is how the heck I can make my truck cool without lowering it... Im going to end up driving it for about a year or so before I can lower it with the Beams...if I even decide to. I dunno if 20s are the way...18s... 17s with a fatter tire. or 15s or 16s with the old school tires. heck even thought about steelies with the beauty rings and classic ford disc...and white walls!???
    dunno. also can decide what to paint it as a get me a couple year paint job...been thinking about Semi Gloss black. like hot hues hot rod black. got any opinions? or Pics?

    It's running the stock 292 with headers and electronic ignition. I lowered it a few inches too. You can't really lower these trucks too far (without spending a lot) before you get into really bad ride issues.

    It currently has the original 3 speed transmission and the 9" rear end (w/ 3.89 gears) but just recently I bought a 3spd/OD transmission and a 9" third member with 3.00 gears to set this thing up for highway cruising while maintaining the decent 1st gear get-up power.

    As far as I know, it sports the original paint, since it was from Texas and was stored in a temp. controlled factory for nearly half its life.

    The angle you see in the picture is it's good side. The front is bent up a bit because someone rolled into a pole, and the passenger-side fender got dinged too. I'm working on the body now that I've pretty much finished getting the drivetrain rebuilt and the brakes stopping safely. The truck is mechanically sound, and drives a lot better than it looks.

    84,562 miles on it as of yesterday.

    By the way, I lowered it without spending a dime, but I have leaf springs all around with the straight axle.

    ooo hush.. with your easy free lowering... 65s are dang expensive to lower... properly anway. Not cutting the coil springs.

    Yeah if you cut the coils your camber goes WACK. That's why twin I-beam suspension always sucked. IFS rides way better and doesn't have any of that static crap.

    Yeah, a guy here has recommended doing a volare front clip. but I hear they ride like crap....i dunno...just not made for a truck??...looks great...more versatile sure...I would just have to physically see it and ride in one to really know ........what I am REALLY likeing the possiblity of is one day doing a Dakota front clip from industrial chassis. I like that it is actually truck parts not car parts...just seems stouter.

    nice stuff...but 2 grand or better...there is the option of just buying the cross member and buying out the parts over time... that dont sound like fun...

    When we first picked up the truck, we thought man what a rust bucket....turns out..the po had slathered on some weird brown paint....granted there is some surface rust...it isnt that bad at all. the truck was really straight. If you look closely you can see the clumpy brown paint....looks like rusty build up. rubbed right off to expose red and white paint.
