Here's a few of my old Ford when I first started wheelin'

1979 F-250, built 429ci(est 400hp) C-6, np205, D44 front, trac-lok, D60 rear welded, 4:10 gears. 2" body lift, 35" BFG M/T's.

I blew up the stock 429 in a swamp. So I decided to build one a little more than stock, I wish I remembered all the details of the engine, but I dropped about $5k into motor and tranny in Summer of '98. I did some mud dragging and sand dragging with it afterwards. Have a few trophies up in my office.
It did have 11.25:1 compression, bored .60, Lunati cam, Wieand stealth intake, Edelbrock 750 carb, MSD ignition, Pete Jackson gear drive, L & L headers, dual 2.5" flowmaster exhaust, blah, blah, blah.

I parted the truck out, the motor is now in a buddies Bronco on 40's, axles I still have access too, cab is on another buddies Ford on 44's. frame/bed when bye, bye.

Old pic from Mounds Turkey Day '97. Notice KillerB in the background, and Murphs old CJ.


Private property '99 or '00. After I was bored and urban camo'd the truck


Same day


sorry for the photo size, I can't resize them...my trial period of photosomething ran out.

Thanks, I do miss it from time to time. I really miss the motor, altho isn't in my buddies Bronco. But he hasn't finished it, so who knows if I will ever see it run.

That's an awful nice Grand to not wheel.

What are those Ford axles doing? What to sell them?
