        Yeah, we'll let Broncos in. I'd say any truck based SUV would be Ok, but no fwd stuff. Rancheros qualify, too.

          OK, here's my submission:



          The story behind it:

          It's my dad's '74/'75 F250. Back in '74 he bought a used '74 2WD F250 with a 360 2V and 4-speed (the body in the picture). Then in '77 he bought a really rough '75 F250 4WD with a 360 2V and 4-speed. I learned to drive with those 2 pickups, starting by sitting on my knees and guiding the 4WD through the field in 1st gear and 4-low pulling a bale trailer. I was 5 when I started doing that. Eventually I got to the point that I could sit down and look between the dash and steering wheel along with reaching the pedals. By about 9 I was following him from field to field at a whopping 15mph. It's kind of funny that it actually would have been legal if I was driving the tractor and he was driving the pickup, but it made more sense for me to drive the pickup. Ah, the good old days. Anyway, sometime in the late 70's the engine in the 2WD gave up and he found a 390 out of a '67 Cyclone and proceeded to transplant that into it. He ended up having to drill and tap the exhaust ports so he could run pickup headers. Eventually the engine got rebuilt and it ended up with pickup heads on it instead of the C6AE-R's. Otherwise he put all of the GT parts back in it. Meanwhile, the body was getting to be pretty bad on the 4WD and the suspension was getting pretty bad on the 2WD. He decided to make one pickup out of it and used the 2WD body on the 4WD chassis and put the 390 4V into it. That's what's in the picture. There were differences in the frame and gas tank arrangements, so we had to drill some new holes and found out that the front tank from the 2WD could be rotated 90 degrees and mounted over the rear differential. There is now only 1 tank and it gets filled up from the rear opening. He's actually looking at selling it, so if you happen to know someone looking for an old highboy, this is still a working truck. Oh yea, a couple of years ago the 750 vacuum secondary Holley was giving us fits, so we stuck a 750 double pumper on it. The first test drive resulted in needing to replace both engine mounts (which was done the next week). It still runs pretty good for an old farm truck!

              My favorite Ford truck would have to be this 53 F-100 I saw at a local cruise in a couple years ago.

                Thanks. Back then the phone was on the wall, a laptop was someplace you sat and no such thing as an iPad (etch-a-sketch was the closest thing). I think I finally got a flip phone and desktop computer when I was in college. The computer I'm typing on now is the first laptop I've actually owned, and was a hand-me-down from my wife.

                  The 69 on the left followed me home about a month ago, so now there are three, a 69 F-100 Ranger, a 70 F-100 Ranger XLT, and a 71 F-250 Custom. They all run and drive, but need plenty of TLC. If I live and have enough time, I'd like to paint them all identical and take them to shows. For now, I'm happy to have them all lined up near my bedroom window.

                    Number 3 used to belong to my bro in law, it was blue and white. Only rust was a quarter sized hole in the bed floor. A friend of mine bought it, stripped it down to the frame, new suspension, built 302 with a C4, later replaced that with an even more built 351W. He did everything but the seat upholstery, this was his first ever paint job.

                      You could remove the question mark from #2, that would be a 55. (Disclaimer - it could be a 56 or 57, it wasn't impossible for a company to use parts from a few years past on the bigger vehicles, I've seen that happen with 79 brand x busses, not sure if Ford did it. But that's a 55 grille.)

                          Yeah, but I'll have to find them. I'll post them in another thread, don't want to clutter up this submission thread too much. For a first time, he really knocked it out of the park. His father in law helped him a bunch, but he did his own bodywork and paint.

                              I picked up a picture this week of a truck I REALLY liked the looks of, but since I won last month I feel funny posting it.
