Looks like my old 1980 truck. I ordered the truck brand new & i made the mistake of getting the 302. No torque, a real dog.
The six is the only way to go unless you go with a big eight, but the fuel mileage will suffer.
Welcome aboard. Lets wish for some better weather.

Looks like a nice straight truck to work with, good luck on the rebuild. :thumbup: :nod:

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.

3.08s are the gears Ford put in for mileage, acceleration sux.

On second thought, if it's for your son, keep the 3.08s to keep him out of trouble.

Great truck! Great engine!
