    I turned a '65 long wide into a short wide. I cut 11" out of the frame ( shoulda cut 12") & re-drilled some bed mounting holes. All I used was a level surface & some 2" angle C-clamped to the frame & mig welded her up

    Here's my '66 that I just bought about 3 weeks ago. Wasn't in the market for one but found this one sitting for sale and for a good price considering what all has been done to it. And its gonna become a SWB in the future. Not sure about the 12 inches of frame removal mentioned in the previous post as I've been told by more then one person that there is 18 inches between the wheels and 6 inches behind the wheel.
     
  8. My buddy, Tom's '60 F-100. Has a gibbon/cordoba clip with a 383 Mopar and push-button tranny. He has an upholstery shop so the interior is all leather and very nice...runs strong, rides nice, sounds great like all big block mopars sound. He's since painted it satin black with full moons..very nice

    My grandpa had a 62 F100 stepside. I loved that truck and I've recently decided that I will have one one day.

    I just picked up a real nice 64 Fleetside Short Box.. Motors is sound super solid, just needs some help in the trans department... Having a hell of a time going into 2nd, then gets stuck either in second or third.. I am gonna pull it in the morning is there anything obvious I should look for before I try to find a good trans man to rebuild her lock stock and barrel? I will post pics in the morn, been working bugs out of her all day.. She has been restored but who ever did it never put her thru her passes, I think it was a body mad restoration.... Because she is rock solid, never a patch panel, straight, but needs a little fine tunning... Any help would be great.. Please pm with input of possible.... Thanks in advance Ryan

    This one belongs to a friend of mine Alex who is in his early 20's. It is tubbed, bagged all the way around, sub-frame up front, nice cammed up 351 cleveland, etc. He is doing a real good job on it. :D

    Yeah, hauling bottles down to airgas in the trunk of the edsel is not too brilliant. The truck should do real good. Btw we finally landed a 56 belair 9 passenger. Things are falling into place great lately. Tomorrow we are meeting and leaving from the shop at 11 to head towards Jakes open house on hwy 99 then to dickie jo's for lunch, you guys are welcome to hang out, Joe 541-729-1141 (cell)

    This 66 f100 was just given to me. I don't know if I am going to keep it yet. Not in bad shape, but no motor.

    It followed me home!

    352, 3 on the tree, mostly original.
    I found a surprise when I got home and opened the glove box. The original window sticker, owners manual and owner warranty card. Not bad to be nearly as old as I am.

    My brother-in-law has your twin. His is a 352 4-speed.

    Nice trucks for sure.

    Good luck,
