Heres my old '68 F250 that i pulled out of its parking spot. I drove this truck and pulled junk home with it all summer a couple years ago. It has a '72 360 and a '75 NP 4spd trans, plus a D60 rear. The engine has low compression and needs a tuneup, tranny is great, exterior body is pretty good. Front of the bed is rusted through as is the drivers floorpan. I have a new floorpan plus a new-in-the-box Centerforce Dual Friction clutch for this truck as well that i never installed yet and im not sure anymore but i dont think it needs it quite yet. Clear BC papers, i might let this one go because all it is now to me is mobile storage space. PM or call me if interested, there are some details to be worked out.
This 61 'Bird was headed to the wrecker, and at that perticular wrecker he'd squash it so fast the tires might not even get unbolted fast enough! Anyhow, i couldnt let that happen.. 390 automatic, 9" rear and lots of good parts, which are available as of NOW.
From giant cars to puny cars... they all come home eventually. This '97 Neon was parked too close to the crackhead party house and next thing you know the windows were smashed and the roof was concave (i popped it back up). Still runs and drives with a 4banger and 5spd, about 160,000kms. Good donor or parts car.
Yesterday, a dream i've been having since about 2000 came true in the pouring rain. The previous owner finally decided to let go of this car. Today i washed it up, installed a good battery, checked its vitals and with some fresh gas it fired up in a split second of turning the key! A true "Go-Pack" car, includes factory tach / disc brakes / 3.54 twin grip differential (according to darrin) / dual exhaust / Hurst shifter / Magnum wheels / Functioning dual scoop fresh air hood / Bucket seats and 140Mph speedo! :hurray:
Well the 390 was pulled (still came with the car though) and a 360 was put in its place for a more driver friendly commute back and forth to college so i wasnt too worried about the engine or i would've taken more precautions before starting it. It fired right up and did smoke for the first few minutes until i shut it off. When i got back from town and it was cool again, it started easy again and there was little to no smoke and then quit altogether as i drove the car around the yard. Only a bit of lifter rattle on first startup but dissapeared after about 3 seconds so i was pretty happy about that. Other than that, it runs excellent! Didnt have to mess with the points, plugs, carb... nothing!
On route to get a truck that was advertised as an F350 that turned out to be an F150 with 1ton axles... we discovered a 73 Riviera which was parked when a spun bearing was suspected. After some discussion it was on the way home on the trailer
Unfortunately it is unregisterable again so i am offering it up as a parts car. Any interested parties can contact me.
