Club Hauler

Hey folks,

Just a note to say I closed the deal to acquire our company F350 flatbed today. It's a little rough, but will clean up pretty easily. I think after it's presentable I'll paint the club logo on the doors.

It needs a few things, so if anyone has a 78-79 Ford Pickup they are parting out, let me know.

Here's a pic from when I used it a couple years ago to do some yard work. We used it as a club last year as well for the swap meet.

Sure Kenny, if you don't mind dismantling the car to get it loaded up.

I don't have anything but we will keep our eyes open. I think F100-F350 has shared cab parts...

I scored a complete grille assy, bumper, wing widows, and dash pad from a 73 f250 @ Pull-a-Part yesterday, all for about $60! It's all in very good to excellent condition. 73-79 are all the same bodies as well as F100-F350, so a few mods are required only to go to an earlier grille assy. I think I'll get few other things from that truck as well, and what I can't get used, I'll get from NPD.

I've used them as well. NPD seems to have had the better parts when I've tried them both. But I do have their catalog I believe. There's a couple things I don't see in the NPD catalog -- I should check that out. Thanks for reminding me.

I ordered about $230 worth of things for the truck this morning. the largest value item is the window weatherstipping kit. So, I'm up to about $300 total investment.

I mean you can't go wrong with this thing. It has 6 brand-new tires, all new Ipana (?) "iron-wood" bed decking. I built the engine in it in 1987'ish and it still runs great. New steering box and clutch. Just a spit-polish and she'll be good as new.

Roger,
I've got a '79 Econo custom van that was hit in the drivers rear corner. Anything you need, is yours, except the N 9" rear. It's an original AZ van w/ either a 302 or 351w. Last ran about 2 years ago or so. Jon

Thanks for the offer Jon. I've looked at these at the Pull-a-Part and there's not a lot on those that work on the same year trucks. I think I've got all the bits and pieces I need to finish it up - give or take a bolt and washer or two.

Too bad there's not much of anything you can use as everything is there, including the drivetrain. It was my daily driver from '01 until it was hit in '03. I bought it from the original owner when I still lived in AZ. All I'm going to do with it is pull the rearend {a nodular 9"} and the rest is off to the crusher as scrap. It'll be gone in the next week or so, so if you do decide there's something you want, let me know soon. Jon

Well just a quick update on "this" project. After almost two months non-stop work I'm down to just building the new side-boards for the flatbed and doing a little more rubbing on the old paint and I'll be getting back to my Falcon stuff.

After scoring the new front grille assy and bumper and getting those put on, I went to start it and found the "newly rebuilt carb" was spewing gas all over. I managed to get it over to the carport where I was going to do all the interior work... but first I pulled the carb to see why a new rebuild would do such a thing.

As I started taking it apart I found the shop (next to the BurgerMaster we have our meeting at) had only put new gaskets in it and didn't even try to clean the old gaskets off in places and didn't even boil it out. After hunting down a new kit I rebuilt it myself and am still debating what to do about shop and the $250 they charged the company for that "rebuild."

Then I gutted the interior and fixed a lot of the wiring (added the intermittent wipers to it), replace the cab running lights since they were all cracked and broken, put in a stereo, new headliner from P-a-P, and fixed all the other wacky things in there.

The cab and interior done, I moved it back to the driveway and cut off the old back bumper and proceeded to install the class 2 hitch and rework all the rear wiring and running lights. That's what I finished up today.

So if it isn't raining tomorrow -- I'll get 'er done!

Nice job Roger. You will have to post some pics. Thanks for taking lots of your time to benefit the club.

Whether I use this for the club more than just for the swap meet, I don't know, but the price was right, so I couldn't pass on it (though I thought long and hard on it... even "free" isn't free).

Of course, it rained hard on Sunday, so I didn't get the bed-sides done, but that's about the last I have to do.

Here's a before shot (grille and bumper were smashed in) and a few after shots.
