We have ignition...
But we still don't have video
Well done now photos please
I am glad that you can't see the video either, I thought that maybe something was wrong with my computer.
I drove it! it needs some more tuning and it pops out of second. But it drove.
pops out of 2nd that is what the piece of rope (ford part No A-xxxx-2) found in the cab is for
That part # is no good. It's backward...... wait. I see your in Oz.
actually outside. Just working out the bugs.
One thing I want to mention is that the 39 trans modification made this thing a lot better to drive with a stock mill. I no longer have to Rev it out all the way so it won't lug bad when shifting into 2nd
So I was staring at this thing today and it's a lot of black. I want to try some trim rings but I haven't seen any for 17's. I think I am going to try out a set of 16inch solids with 5.50x16 and 7.50x16 firestone blackwalls that i have. I've got a couple sets of hupcabs to try too. One thing I am thinking about is to change the wheel color. Any thoughts on color? I thinking maybe a white wheel. or green?
Mine are orange of all things. Were like that when I got it and now I kinda like it.
Throw a picture of your pickup over on the photoshop thread and get someone to add some different coloured wheels for you.
How about either ivory or a buckskin color? And double maroon pinstripes?
I like the black wheels personally
Maybe a simple pinstripe on the body line would break it up somewhat.
Noooooooh! It's because it's just black, it's kuul!
If you need spiced up look, I'm with gwhite - a pinstripe on the body (I'd go for cream-ish or red-maroon-ish) or a red on the wheels.
I really like this look, though - used truck, and nothing else!... until we meet at a redlight!
it does kinda have a midnight special vibe going on
As is - perfect.
Mate leave it be and drive it
Anything new happening with this? Weren't you working on a new motor?
The truck is doing well....I was daily driving it up until roughly a year ago. Between the shop and everything, she hasn't seen much love. Anyways thought I better update you guys with some pictures.
Still going strong
I’ve always loved this truck.
Love this truck! I wished I could fit in one but at 6'4" I need a bit more real estate.
It's nice to see this one pop up again. One of my favourites.
