heres the 51 Ford Ive been working on
Hey todd, you have a cad. 500 in your truck right? How's that working out for you? Does it really move the truck?
Heres the F-100 I built. I sold it to make $ to build my deuce. Its running around Chino, Calif. Anybody ever see it around?
Like I told the kid, "Your music's not too loud, its just like OKC, it sucks!"
how much for the 63 ?
Here's a rare bird! Only 1135 made & only 5 known to exist! 1941 Chevrolet Coupe PU! They advertised To Buy this PU use it M-Fri as a truck then pull bed out of trunk go on your dates on weekend in a 41 Coupe & on Monday back to work as a PU! I picked this up out of Bonners Ferry ID We are working on getting it back on the road after sitting for 50 yrs! Also a pic of my 38 Sedan Delivery Tks Bill
The short answer is yeah, it's a 500...and yeah, it really moves...It's a '76 engine that's stock with an Edelbrock intake/carb. I'm glad I didn't go any higher numerical rear end ratio (3.25:1 posi) when I went through the 9". It's the same ratio as the Cad it came out of, just pushing around about 1,000 pounds less...burns the tires at 5 mph or 50 mph...sorta light in the ass...
I just picked up a pair of 15x10's and a pair of 285/70 BFG's for the rear, so it should keep the power on the ground a bit more soon
My biggest battle has been with the front coil springs. Having a helluva time getting a stiff enough rate. Started out with V6 Mustang II, then V8 Mustang II, now I have a set out of an '86 Mustang 5.0. Those are still too mushy, so I got a freebie set of '94 Mustang Cobra coils...we'll see how they work after I lose a coil...
This is way cool...
looking for the two toned orange and white 1957 white truck
Nice trucks !!! Here is my 1950 Chevy 3100, that came out of a junkyard in N.C.
My '40, Keepin' the thread alive !
Here is my previous car... just sold it about 2 or 3 mounths ago... I miss her already!!!

My '57 F100
I just got it going. I have a lot more work to do.
Who makes those hub caps? They kinda look like Saturn MOONS...
thank man your too..
Here's ours..I posted it some time back on the C10 thread.
Last week we put this old topper on it. Topper was stored in a barn for over 30 yrs.
It's about the correct era.
These are mine.The dodge was built in 2006,Rancharo 2007,and the panel in 2008,It is now my daily driver.
Heres one I just got 55 2nd ser. I like it
Thought I'd post an update...just installed the rebuilt 327.
Nice. I've been thinkin bout puttin moon disks, along with whitewalls, on my C10. Looks bitchin.
my 63 chevy
What a transformation NITMARE...just went back and looked at your build process...looks great!
FWIW, mine still has the 235/75 front tires on a 5.5" rim, and they rub at full wheel lock during a bump...not too bad though. I just picked up some 15x7's for the front, and will be installing 215/75 tires for a little more clearance. The back will be getting 15x10's with 285/70's in the next couple of weeks...my rear springs must be well-worn, because I did the same process as you did, and mine seems noticeably lower (my pumpkin pokes through the bed floor about 1/2" unloaded):
My lil truck.
This is my 1973 Ford Ranger XLT short bed truck with 138,000 miles on it. A 390 4 barrel C6 automatic, A/C, disc brakes, tilt wheel, delay wipers. Drive it every day in the summer.
Really a '73? Man this thread has got some people way O/T.
My 1959 Chevy. Still earning its keep
maybe 3 out of almost 30 pages- par for the course, really... seems there's always a few who just don't get it.
