Default just a good old ford

Here are a couple pic's of my mud truck. It has undergone many changes as many of yours have as well. it is a 79 body, 74 frame, 72 460 engine, 78 transmission, and 78 front axle. i bought it 2wd when I was 17 and now it is what it is.

That is by far my favorite truck. I have had a dozen or so 78-79 old Ford pickups and broncos. My last one is still sitting where the guy I sold it to parked it the day I drove it to his house 2 years ago. I am thinking about getting it back from him one of these days.

Hope to see more of it.

My old 429ci had more than enough power. That motor scared the crap out of me on more than one occasion. But I loved it.
