Wish you all the best

Recommended Posts

So I decided it was time for a change. I let the Mach1 go and picked up a new project, a 74 F100 shortbed with a 390. So off to the truck forums I go.

 

But I couldn't leave without saying goodbye and thanking you guys. This is a great forum and I wish you all the best.

 

Randy.

You are going to miss that Mustang ...

 

I love those old ford trucks .The 65s-79s were the best ,Ford screwed up when they got rid of those twin I beams .I have owned a few .a few light mods and they become an off road monster .

I used my 79 as a pre runner for Johnson and Douglas off road racing and a couple of others for 25 years ,it did almost anything the race truck could do .Some day i will restore it . Good luck and have fun with yours .

At least you had the privilege of owning one.

Last year I sold my 1973 F250 HighBoy, was a lot of fun it had a 390, 4 speed w/ granny gear, 4:10's and a 4x4.

 

Here's a couple of good forums, ford-trucks.com and www.fordification.net, plus LMC helped with the parts.

 

Main thing is that you kept Ford Blue, Good Luck and enjoy the new project!!

I've had a 66, 67,68 and 69 mustang in my life from the day I turned 16 (37 years ago lol). I was gifted the 66, then bought a 68, and traded the 66 for a 72 F250 with a 360. Pulled the 360 and dropped in a TP 427, I still miss that truck to this day, and should never had let it go (especially the engine).

 

I haven't decided for sure where I'm going with the 74 F100 shortbed, first thoughts are still drop it with a stout Windsor. But I have toy'ed with the pre-runner idea as well, we shall see.

 

You are definitely a huge asset to this forum Ridge, thank you. When or if I miss the Mach, I'll pop back in and see what's up here. :)

I bleed Ford Blue and always will. I admit I've owned 2 GM (cough cough) products, a Buick GS and a small block Vega (I even thought about getting another Vega and dropping a Windsor in it just to piss off the bowtie boys lol)

 

I've been trolling both those forums you mentioned and I already like LMC. Thanks.

Good luck with your new adventure! I've always thought a truck would be my next project, maybe when/if I retire in a few years :)

I just retired (disability) this year. It was the main reason I went with a truck, much easier for me to get in and out of haha.

Congrats and Good luck with the truck.  I'd love to get my hands on a 67-73 myself.  Probably buy one and park it until I get space money to mess with it.  Anyway you don't need to be a stranger you can still stop by and contribute even if you've sold the car.

C'mon Randy, don't be a quitter! Well, happy trails in your pick up on the streets of LA. Did you sell the Stang to someone local?

The nice thing is ,you can get parts for 65 -79 Ford trucks about as easily as most Mustangs .I am still looking for a 65 -66 short bed ...and i have my eye on an untouched 66 short bed .I think i am still on Ford trucks .com ,i haven't gone on in years though

I got the itch too, sold mine also & picked up a 71 Road Runner to restore. It happens.

I built this 77 for my mom ,she drove it for years and it stayed looking like this until she sold it and bought a Crow Vic.

I built this 66 strictly as a race truck but wound up using it as a pre runner ,i wish i had kept it .It made it in a couple of off road magazines ...after i sold it .It had split tie rods with an idler arm twin i beam front end and the rear was a 3 link ,it had 24 inches of travel and was a kick in butt off road .

Thank you guy's soo much, it'll try and pop it in from time to time. As far as picks it started it's life as a work truck so it's a little ruff, but totally rust free. But NO picks till I get the HORRENDOUS 22s off it lol.
