Cool what are you.....

What are you all working on as far as projects going around the house or shop?

Pics and what not as long as its powered by ford....

I have put my stuff on hold gathering more parts and more concentrated on the fab shop at this time its picking up well and just hoping it keeps on going.

Good luck with all the projects and stay safe everybody

Tag and ins it's a street car, how it gets there does it really matter?

Nobody's perfect but if u drive a ford your darn close.

Just finished up most of the work I'll be doing on my car for a lil bit:



Last winter I redid the interior, and built the rear for it. (new leaf springs, shocks, aluminum driveshaft, 1350 u joints/yokes, gear vendor, strange third with 4.30 rear gears etc)
I want to install an electric fuel pump and a cheetah shifter here in the future, right now I have a lokar shifter with no detents that is kinda scary to shift manually when you are really jamming on it.
the build is documented here if ya wanna read it:
http://www.fordmuscleforums.com/maki...5-galaxie.html

Other project this winter/next summer, is I want to restore this 61 Shasta airflyte:



I just think it'd be super cool to haul to far away car shows and whatnot with my car :P I might even nickname it the 'trailer queen' (my car)


I'm also saving up money for a mini restoration of my daily driver. 1976 F100 with 390/c6.
I've built the 390, the transmission, the rear, front end etc.
I need to knock out some dents, do a lil welding, etc and paint the old girl. Need to redo the interior and windshield, all that kinda stuff. Probably need 4-6months to save up the money to tackle that project, but I might wait a lil.... been my experience that when I take something apart it ends up costing more just because I'm not willing to reinstall iffy parts.

I'll be working on my '67 F100 this Fall/Winter. Got all the front end stuff from a 73-78 to swap to front Disc Brakes. After that's all installed I'll be picking up a Steering column and brake booster as well as It'll be getting power steering and brakes. Then I've got a $500.00 gift card for Summit Racing that'll be going towards a new painless wiring kit for it.


Next year will be doing all the running gear. Was originally a 300 I-6 and 3 speed manual. Will be ending up with a big block and C6. I can't normally stand white, but this one's got original paint and I just can't bring myself to get it repainted considering the shape it's in.

Yeah, I dunno where he came up with that..... I love the factory look of both my truck and car, i do not intend to change them in that way.

Itsabullet, that is a great truck, I love the bumpsides!
I dunno if you need it or want it, but I've got a power steering column out of my 76 that is in great shape. It is a column shift type, when I installed a floor shifter, I changed the column out for a manual shifter type so it looks a lil more professional.

I'm heading to a pick n pull tomorrow to see what they have. Shoot me a pm with your price and I may take you up on that offer depending on what I can find around here. Column shift is perfect. Do you have the linkage also?

Thanks for the compliment by the way. I like your old dent also. Good luck on the resto.

Itsabullitt that's one of my favorite truck body's it should be a fun truck with the big block in it.
The old 300's are some good engines hard to beat for a 6cyl.

Thank you sir. It's my first Ford truck, and will be my first big block. Only took me 33 years. I've always wanted a classic Ford truck ever since my older brother had his '77 back in high school. Unfortunately all of my other pickups have worn bow ties. I'm slowly coming around.

Project 72LTD

I was going to drop my 472" BBF into this 72 LTD but halfway through this project I found a real solid 65 LTD with no motor and just beggin for a big block.
72 LTD 400ci ported 2v cleveland heads, howards cam, C6 rebuilt, 3:25 traction loc gear, 2-1/2" dual pipes with crossover. Looking for parts if anyone knows of a parts car.

That thing is a big body and looks bad *** what size tire is on the back of it. It looks really clean with the white paint job!!!

I have 235-55-17 on all four corners, for now. I plan on adding rear disc brakes, fatter front sway bar, bucket seats with floor shifter and hand built headers next year. Going to try an autocross with it in spring.

Not powered by a BBf but I'm extending my shed about 9 feet at the moment to house a BBf powered vehicle. Eventually I will extend the other end out another 20 feet giving me 60' X 25'. Hopefully I should have enough room then.

Here's the old Truxter. I took my drivers license test in 1993. Been driving it off and on since then. Started out as a half ton, now has all 1 ton running gear and frame. Been through several engines and trannys. Putting together another 460 now as I popped the one that's in it.

So I didn't do it.
