1970 Ford F250 Explorer

Postby RX-7 Chris » Thu Jun 07, 2012 9:14

I figure I'd start a thread on my old truck since it's now at my house. I'll get pics soon.

The first think I need to do to the truck is have the drive shaft balanced.

info on the Explorer:

My truck is an explorer F250 Camper Special. 390 (out of a '69 Torino) and a C6. It also has P/S, P/B, front disks. The disk brakes are huge, we had to slightly grind this inside of the 16" wheels to fit them over the brakes.

Still no pics of the truck.

I picked up the driveshaft at the shop after a rebuild last night. Total cost of $184.

I always figured I'd see the back seat of your Jeep, but I never thought it would be like this...

Drove it to work, huh? (Is it creepy that I know what your parking lot looks like?)

Your boss is probably like, "wow, I don't pay this guy enough" ha ha ha

I bet that truck smells just like it looks- congrats.

he is a dick but he is also right, lol.

It smells like a cross between mouse crap and oil.

Actually the truck is now cleaned out. I picked up a bunch of parts at the junk yard on Saturday. I'll get pics soon.
