Today is a monumental day...i am about to start working on my '68 Ford F-100 again! I started this baby probably a good 5 years ago while i was working on Classic Trucks Magazine...did TONS of work to it already...Lots of chassis work getting the former twin I-beam truck to sit right on coil overs (never been a fan of air even though stuff looks great slammed. I worked with Ford Racing and put in the first Ford 3-valve Modular V8 into a non-stock application, it had an '08 4.6L V8 now with a Ford Racing/Whipple big boost blower kit (adapted from an '08 Mustang), plus a beefed up T-45R Tremec, 9" posi/3.55:1 gears, etc. First set of American Racing Magnum 500-style (AR500)wheels, 18" redlines, i snuck AC in the truck, but rearranged the dash so it looks natural and hid the lines coming from the compressor, bent, cut, and welded up custom aluminum hardlines off the condenser...trick fuel Aeromotive system all in 1/2" stainless hardline, fully tig welded mandrel bent stainless exhaust system, etc...yeah, lots of work. I gotta get it done in 2012!
