bought this yesterday, 79 f150 4x4, 351m, auto, cab is on decent shape but the bed is done for. i drove her home the hour long trip on the highway, it was pretty annoying not having any exhaust after the y pipe.

how i first found er..



drive home..





and home.. well in my town at least, shes parked at my buddys place till tuesday..



plans are to restore and get it licensed, probably a mini-spool rear and lockright front, cant decide if i want to go 4" lift and 33s or stock height and 31s.. for the more original look..

Nice truck! When I first saw the speedometer pic, I was like "holy ****, how did you get that thing up to 110mph?", then I realized it was kilometers. LOL!


You know, it would be pretty badass to swap those axles in the BII... just sayin...

haha i bet she could get to 110 mph.. while falling off a cliff.

anyways, i scrapped the interior of the 79 bronco today.. taking whatever i can out of her for parts for my f150 becuse the bronco is soon going to the crusher. i took the headliner out of her and i just bought some camo fabric and im gonna wrap the headliner with it, and put in the f150. hell yeah!

It looks like a project! I have a '76 going to the crusher if you need parts. You pay shipping only.
