Default My trucks...

Hi all!

I'm new here and thought I'd post up my trucks.

I am currently driving a '74 F-250 2wd Custom.

It has the stock 360ci engine w/2 bbl, NP435 4spd, and factory limited slip rear.

I have 2,987lbs of compost in the bed in this pic:


This is my '77 F-250 4x4 Custom when I picked it up last October.
I managed to get this truck for free, and from the original owner!
It was a 351M,(blown) putting a 400M in it.
T18 4spd/NP205.



I am currently halfway through swapping a newer engine into the '77, as it blew the engine Nov. 20th last year, when I was in the mountains.

I paid $275 for a 1980 E-250 with all of the windows broken out, a rebuilt C6 tranny, and a 400M that has under 1,000 miles on it!
I bought the van in Hardin,MT, and drove it the 100+ miles home. Talk about the ultimate in "redneck air conditioning"! lol.
It ran great all the way.
The van:


Fire damage from negligent neighbor of previous owner:

The 400M in the van:


Under all of that dirt, the engine still has most of it's paint.

I'll take more pics when I get the engine clean, and in my '77.

Yup. Know anyone that needs a used/rebuilt 2wd C6?

I have had bad luck with automatics, plus I have no use for a 2wd tranny.

Thanks! The 2wd that I am currently driving was actually bought for $450, as an engine donor for my '73 F-100 4x4 Custom.

It needs some paint work, but is rock solid.

I will post pics of it in the F-100 section.
