Default 77 F250 build build

Well I picked up a 77 F250 last weekend. It's 2wd 400/c6, the 400 locked up while unloading so that'll be scrapped.

The plan is to pull the drivetrain out of my ranger, 351 4r70w 203/205 60/14b and swap it into this. The front will be 3 linked with 14x2.0 Kings. Rear will be 5.5" chevy 63's.

Here's some pics of the truck.

I can't believe how clean it is every bolt came right no rust anywhere.

I paid $1800 for the truck so I'm really happy with the deal so far.

Got the rear end under the truck this weekend and started the front.

What do you guys think of the numbers?
