meet our new 1965 Ford F250...

Cain saw this and couldn't pass it up. It is a 1965 Ford F250. We think the first part of it's life was spent as a commercial vehicle until it was parked in a garage where it sat for the past 20 years. The paint is original and the pink slip is pink.

Meet our new tow vehicle.

It's a CustomCab with a 352 in it. Whoever had it welded in two extra gas tanks (very nicely done) and covered the pin holes for the "custom cab" badges. We're going to put those back.

Right now, we're not sure what we're doing. I wanted an orange truck but dang, the paint is in good condition considering how old it is. The body is straight, very few dents, the tail gate is straight and perfect, and the dash is a original. Even the cardboard glove box is still there. Has just over 100k on the clock.

We are going to get bumpers and but a hitch on it though.


Oh and it has a lighter and an ash tray.

Please do, I love old trucks. I had originally wanted a 50 era, but this one came along at the right time. And the dang thing runs. Not well, but it runs.

I like them too, it sounds like you found a gem. Mine was not as old as I like & had been restored, I'll have to hunt the pic' down. My partener had an old cream Ford truck I think it was a "68 it was neat too. I will be interested to see it when you are finished

Paint it flat black then coated with the chalkboard paint. Then let the kido's drawn on it.

Have a buddy that did it to his lowrider he takes to shows. Cool fun for everyone.

Think of it this way...different paint job everyday and it sprays right off.

The black is big here. Murdered out with red on the wheels is on every other old rat rod. I had my heart set on something in the orange or green range, but this blue looks so nice with the white, I think we're staying with it.

Like this....

Found it, the color is looking a bit washed out, guess the photo' is old.It was "Peacock Blue" really nice deep Blue Green, with polished boards in the flat bed. I towed all over the place with it.

The other one we had was a '57 after looking it up I realised I had the wrong year, they are a real nice old truck, only thing I didn't like was the cream pearl paint kind of looked dirty all the time

Yeah, it's a tough call on messing with the original paint that is in that good shape. But a creamsickle orange with a wood paneled bed would be pretty sweet Socal looking.

OK Gang... Well we spent the day cleaning it up just to see what we have. I think it's better than I thought it was and I thought it was pretty damn good.











I've been teasing tiny about painting this on the doors!



Although, she says it should say "Tiny's Bait Shop".

Damn Chris's that turned out to be a serious diamond in the rough. The issues with what TT emailed me won't be any problem for you to spruce up and it looks like on the front seat that Carquest is helping you with that already.

Well... Tiny and I just came in from the garage.

The PO had many issues trying to get it to run and fiddled with this truck for a while.
So today I set out to figure out what was going on. Under the hood I found a fuel pressure regulator (I scratched my head at this one because with the factory style fuel pump putting out less than 6 psi I couldn't understand why he had put it on there) and 3 fuel filters.

So, I started taking things off and put it back together stock. Well as soon as I did gas came rolling over the top of the carb. I thought "stuck float". So I pulled the carb and opened it up. Somewhere along the line the clip that hold the float had came loose. I cleaned the carb up, snapped in the clip, put it back together and tiny put it back on.

We started it up and it idles freakin awesome. This was also the answer to the power issues the truck had.

Also, the PO had told me he had issues with gas in the oil. and now I know why. The vacuum line for the advance was stuck on the metal line coming out the back of the carb at the top. When the float would stick, the fuel would go down this line, fill up the vacuum chamber of the advance (which needs replaced) and down into the distributor and into the crank case. All problems solved thanks to a clip. tiny quoted Stephen King "for the want of a nail, the kingdom was lost".

Now onto the exhaust leak which I've narrowed down to the pass. side exhaust flange being bent kinda like a horse shoe. That will be fixed tomorrow.

The clutch is making a little noise but feels tight. Maybe from setting, we'll see.

I'm most impressed with the steering. So freakin' tight. No slop what so ever!

Here's tiny wrenching on her truck. I can't help it... This is HOT!!! I love it!

Tiny, I need you to convince my wife that working on cars is fun and grease under your nails is a sign of a job well done. Congrats on the new toy. Looks like a lot of fun.

Working under the hood is too fun to hang back. I can't see how anyone wouldn't like it.



And I like the black crap under my fingernails.
