First Post ;)The first time I met the Ford 300

Good morning all!

Long time listener, first time caller here. I’ve had a thing for the Ford 300 six since high school. Bought an ‘81 Bronco for $400 and (like most teenage boys) basically tried to kill it every day. Brakes, clutches, axles, driveshafts, tires, were no match for my lack of wheeling education and my heavy right foot, but that long skinny engine under the hood seemed to understand. I didn’t know a thing about engine maintenance and that 300 was ok with that. Dirty air filters, missed oil changes, hours and hours at full throttle in the mud or on the highway. That engine always seemed to say “That’s ok kid. You get all that out of your system and I’ll still be here chugging along.” And it did. It wasn’t a powerhouse and couldn’t hardly pass a parked car, but it was always ready to go. :mrgreen:

Welcome to the Ford Six forum FoMoCo300fan, yes those 300 big six'es really last and take the abuse. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
A bad day Drag Racing is still better than a good day at work!

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
