Default My '73 F-100 4x4 Custom

This is the only 1/2 ton that I own, and it will be getting 3/4 ton rear leafs soon.

I have to finish getting the new engine in my '77 F-250 first though, as the engine that is going into the '73 is in my current daily driver.

The '73:


Removed the smashed up bed, new bed is on the ground behind it in the pic.


The white bed is currently on the truck.

The only bad part about this truck is the Dana 20 t-case.
No low range, just 2wd or 4wd.

Thanks!

It has been an on again, off again project for the past 2 years.

It just isn't heavy duty enough for the kind of things I haul and pull right now, so it is kinda on the back burner right now.

I'm hoping to have the engine in it, and drivable before winter.

Now that I have managed to get my '77 F-250 4x4 up and running again, I will be starting on my '73 F-100 4x4 as soon as haying season is over. (roughly 2 months, as long as the weather stays decent)

It will be getting the 360ci engine that is in my '74 F-250 2wd, that I was driving.

As well as the wiring harness from it, as the '73 wiring harness was pretty well shot. (mice had a field day with it)

Once it is drivable, it is going straight to the glass shop for a new windshield seal.

The windshield itself is in great shape, but the seal has shrank and there are gaps at all 4 corners that are big enough to fit a finger in between the windshield and the cab.

Also, if the rear leaf springs are the same width, I will be putting the 3/4 ton springs from the '74 under the '73.

We'll see how things go on this project though.

What can I say, I love working on my trucks! lol :)
