Hauled this little 85 D100 short bed up to a local swap meet yesterday and today. I think I have 6 of these trucks and I really don't need that many. They follow me home like WH's do for some people. Bought it from a guy who was going to put a small block chevy in it (sacrilege, IMO). He threw away the AC and heater box, every piece of trim on the truck and scrapped the engine and trans. I threw a Magnum 318 and 5 speed manual overdrive in it and got it running Thursday evening. Took it to the swap meet and I only had one guy interested in it.. and he offered me half of what I was asking. Fairly sad swap meet. Half of the spaces were empty and the foot traffic was nearly non existent. Got home and saw a text from the guy I got my Porsche 928 from a month or so ago saying he's looking for a truck project. He's coming to look at it after lunch tomorrow! Hopefully I can get it sold and make a little bit.

Well, turns out the guy that was going to look at it was looking for a project for his 2 sons, and they both decided that they want a ford instead (some peoples kinds, right? LOL). I've done a bit more work to it the last few days and I'm starting to like the truck. I might call and put insurance on it tomorrow, put antique plates on it (Like $60 for 5 years registration and no inspection) and sort it out some. If It runs and drives good, I might just have to keep it!

That Mustang takes me back to the 60's. My Gramps had one at the lake and man we popped the wheelies on that beast!!

So half day at work today.

Had drive to the coast to pickup some Wheel Horse gear I ordered.

well this morning my guy with the WH gear tells me he’s passing on a 753.

So I went and looked at it. I do need a few parts, well then just throw it on here. 😂

Hoods a little crooked because the motor has been replaced (locked up)

But at least the PO didn’t cut the hood.

Anyone have any idea what these are on the back?

On those brackets Super maybe a bagger or lawn sweep support of sorts?  They don't look homemade.

And what? His message seemed pretty clear to me..

 

I also have two Mustangs. Rode around on them as a kid... They've been sitting for years now, but maybe someday I'll get around to messing with them.

They look like seat backrest springs, not sure why they would be mounted like that

Thanks guys, I knew someone would know what they were.

 

Anyone have an extra back rest they would part with? :D
