Hello from Virginia Beach!

Post #1 by VBdude5335 » Fri Jul 05, 2019 4:31 pm

Hello Ford Six world!
I recently became the proud owner of a 95 F150 XL standard cab long bed, 4.9 L6 EFI with M5ODR2 trans out in VA Beach. It has 118k miles and kind of fell into my lap. I’ve been casually looking for for a project truck to throw money at. An elderly neighbor had this hiding in her backyard sinking into the grass for the last 15 years or so with a window down. She was moving and another neighbor got it for the low price of towing it off her property. He spent about a year doing a “pick n pull” restoration and then decided he didn’t want to keep it. I took it off his hands for essentially what he put into it. The truck runs great, and the only immediate things it needs are new door locks (it had no keys at all when neighbor got it), new AC compressor, and some bed rail liners to protect some peeling paint spots for the time being. Other than that, it runs great!

Here are some pictures of the truck after a deep wash and wax.

I’m planning on making it a fun street cruiser/show truck and doing a frame off restoration with custom interior and air ride. Initially, I was planning on doing an engine swap, until I found this forum and saw how much fun could be had with these inlines! This will be a multi year project, and since the truck is such a good daily driver, I’m strongly considering building a new 300 from the ground up. This will be my first build, and I’m excited to continue to learn from the vast knowledge in this forum. My one question, just to field ideas- if money was no object and you wanted to get as much power out of your big 6, what would you do? Thanks guys!

A big welcome to the Ford Six forum V8dude5335, home of the most knowledgeable people and largest collection of info on the 240'/ 300 six'es. If money was no object I would build a 671 Suppercharged or Twin Turbo six. Good luck on your F150. :thumbup: :nod:

Howdy! That sounds a fun project. Is it me or the link to the photo isn't loading?
