my 1976 ford f100

hey guys this is my 1976 ford f100
i've been in the middle of restoring her for the last 4 years
times have been rough going form one job to the next and saving and spending lol but all is well i've been doing a lot of work over the corse of the last summer and this past winter I do have a shit load of pictures i'll post some on here and give you a link to photobucket to chekc the rest out if your intrested

1976 ford f100
351w n/a
4sp hurst link kit
8.8 rear with 3.73 detroit locker
stock every thing else








this was 2 years ago





i had her running open headers for this sound clip



this is how she sits now



i still have alot of work

buddy ay works got a 79 f100
so i'm taking some interrior parts that i dont have
gotta finish little patches on the box i have for it and put it on wiht the wood floor
put the doors back on
then some final touches then she will be getting shiped out to get painted
then all the glass goes in
and she will be a complete truck again

problem is i cant drive it till 03/18/2014
because i'm not 25...yet
so this is why this truck has been under construction for this long
you may see that theres a lot of work ahead of me but really theres not
just big parts arent on the tuck
doors are off cause no room to open them
hoods off cause not enough light under it
box is off for repairs
gotta finish the custom dash for after market guages
the truck is drive able the way she sits but its not recomended

thanks for taking the time to read this and look at my pics
i will be updating this
every weekend, seeing thats the only time i have to work on her

again thanks

it looks good to me, but I've lost a bunch of 73-79 Fords recently so I'm in withdrawal

did you save the original stepside fenders? the 80-86 are ok but the roundy ones look better on the pre 80 trucks in my opinion.

keep up the good works. get it appraised when you are done and insure for the full value.

Is that the box I found for you Ben ?? Your truck is coming along just keep plugging away at her and before you know it she will be done. There's a guy just outside of Shedden on highway 3 that has 4-6 trucks in his back yard you should go on a weekend and see if he will sell any parts.

nice to see something from the 70's still hapnin

lookin at the rad cradle I have to ask if I'm lookin at the same one in both pics 'cause it sure looks good in the second one
& I know just how hard it is to find a good rad cradle

I've got a 79 that I claim to be workin on but not much has happened since I put it in the garage back in '91 when I bought it
- but then , it hasn't rusted much either so it will still be there when I get the chance to get back at it
