Just purchased a '68 F250 CC from Oregon that was listed at Old Ford Crew Cabs
- it has 16" rims w/tubeless tires, power steering & power drum brakes, granny 4-speed, driver side spot light, & a divorced transfer case 4x4 suspension. Originally came with a 360 FE, but was replaced by a 351M. It sat for 6 years after the mufflers exploded during a start-up. The floor bed is shot and there are some rust spots around the cab roof & doors. With my welding skills, I'm hoping I just need to do some patch work.
When the '68 arrives, the first task would be to have the engine looked over and started. Then, replace all the gear oil, repack the wheel bearings & check the drum brakes.
I'd like to get this rig in driving condition while restoring it to keep my interest. I hope to make it into a dependable driver with some performance modifications in the future like a diesel engine swap & 4-wheel disc brakes. I'll be looking forward in learning a whole heap from you all and posting the progress here with a picture of the rig towing the '66 on a trailer.
- Wheels where not 16.5" split rims. They are 16" steel rims w/tubeless tires. Less work for me!
