1977 F250 Gas 2WD
Hey guys, ive got a '77 f250 project i am starting. Im 14 yrs old so im on a reasonable budget. Im doing all the work myself but would really appreciate your advice on what suspension, engine parts etc.

for help
I suggest you state what you need, any current issue (engine, suspension, body) and where you want to go

we like photos

Welcome. What are you looking to do with the truck and what's it's current condition?
Pictures are worth a thousand words.

CowBoy Chris is who I'm thinking of on your west coast

Haha yea man im down under, i live in perth. The cars in ok condition, it was parked outside for years before i bought it so there is quite of bit of rust on her. I havent taken many photos of it but i will upload some tomorrow cuz its quite dark atm.

Im planning to change the suspension (shocks, springs etc), i need a whole interior except the seat as im changing the to bucket seats, need new bonnet, door locks, doors and floor pans.
For the engine i want to put a turbo or twin turbo. I currently have the 4.2l straight six that came with the car from factory i think, what turbo and kit would you recommend.

I'm confused
you say you have a '77 f250 truck

then you mention car and a 4.2l straight six which I think is a car engine or in the Blazer

I know y'all got different stuff down there than we do in the States

can you clarify

HighBoii July 24th, 2014 09:10 AM

Yea sorry bout that man, the tags are very messy so i can barely make out the year, but through research i found that i have the 77 front and shape
It might be different because like you say its different over here
