Okay, I've never found myself as much of a "truck guy" but the past couple of years I've had the urge to own a '65-'66 ford pickup, mainly because of the few that I've seen at the Pumpkin Run that are slammed to the ground and look barn-fresh, Thats where this now leads me...

I've got the opprotunity to own a yellow/white '66 Ford F100 longbed for the price of $1000, Its not in that bad of shape, keeping in mind it is 42 years old. The only bad part is some rust here and there, and the fact that someone hit it hard on the drivers side, BUT the truck comes with all sorts of extra parts including a bedside. the truck had a door put on it from a donor truck and the extra parts are from a donor truck. It is an original V8 truck, had a 289 in it. Story goes that it had a rod knocking so it was swapped out with a 302, and just needs finished putting back together to run (could possibly get the 289 still). and already has a 9" in it...






Now the only way I could get this truck is if I get rid of my '85 coupe, my big block project... a car that I've wanted to have and build for a looooong time, a car that Vinny himself told me to build, I'll never be able to get another 4-eyed coupe like this in a looong time. I've grown really attached to this little white coupe. and I have almost everything needed to build the car (minus BB C4bell, mounts, oilpan kit, and headers)





I'm having a hard time deciding what to do, I'm torn between my love for mustangs and my little white coupe and this pickup...so givin the pics and info... what would you do?

I think you should let me take that notch off your hands and do up the truck :lol: Seriously, I'd go on with the coupe and pass on the truck. You can find those on Craigslist all day long for around that price and they'll be around after the Mustang is up and running.

The Mustang would be the high performance car, and the truck could be just a mild cruiser. Can you have both??
I wish I could have both... I'd have to think of a way to come up with ATLEAST $800 to get that truck

You all have a good point. I've been getting about the same responses on my local forums I belong to as well...

Now hauling the car to the track with the truck gets the gears in my brain turning :twisted:
