I am getting close to closing a deal on this 1965 F100 - A little bit high in price at $4500 , but this thing is solid .

Big block 400 from a 74' LTD -C6 Automatic tranny. Every piece is here - all chrome and lights , not a dent , minor bondo in spots.

I really like this thing and feel that it has great potential as a hauler for my tractors. And it will look good :smilewink:

I went over every inch of it top and bottom , no real red flags .

It has been sitting a couple years and needs to be resurrected . I think it is a great find.

Cool!  Nice year for Ford, but goofy engines at times, guess that is changed anyway!  Any more those big prices are what they get for older stuff. Threw me out of market for early 50's Chevs, they want 2 to 3,000 for junkers anymore.  $20,000 of more for finished or rodded ones.

Yes , up here you don't see these and this was a N. Carolina truck before it came here so it has very little rust .

I have seen these RestoModded and they go from 25-35K  In decent running and looking 12K and up .

I just want something that 'I' can fix , I am tired of paying the long dollar because a sensor went out and it is 700$ to look at.

I opened the hood on this thing and I see a V8 motor - not a bunch of hoses and plastic covers .

That's an awesome pickup!!!

 

Has a 66 grille but otherwise a 65 is the same.  65 is the first year for the twin I beam front end.  They are OK for a daily driver.  They wander all over the road when loaded.

Yep that's a good one.I really miss our old 67 long bed.

 

You might want to upgrade the radiator to a nice 4 core aluminum unit.Those 400s like to run a little Hot.It more than likely had a 6 cylinder in it originally.

 

What gears are in the rear?

Good advice, most overlooked item when doing an engine swap!

That's because you can barely build a nice rod for less than 20. Especially if you swap to a Mustang II crossmember, A arms and steering. You can put a cutout Nova clip on the chassis, but you better be very sure of your welding skills. Change out the rear suspension and drop a 9" in. Rebuilding a small block with a mild cam, aluminum intake and even a Quadrajet is not cheap. Then you have paint and interior work. Plus wheels and tires. You can do steel rally's relatively inexpensive but if you want alloy wheels hold on. You can drop 2 large on paint supplies only to sand most of it off and leave it on the floor.

That's why rat rods or getting so popular. You can drop your 50 Chevy pickup on an S10 chassis and running gear. Patch the floor board holes and you're almost in business.

My daddy had one just like that that he and one of my mom's cousins used to sell back and forth to each other every couple of years. $ 200 each time. Should have bought a field full of them. Shoulda. Woulda. Coulda.

Nice old truck. Body work is what always scares me. I found a really nice 71 nova last week. Great price but needed paint and some minor rust repair. I passed since I knew I couldn't do what it needed and wasn't going to drop thousands on a paint job...

I am not sure about the rear gears yet , It looks to have an oversize radiator .

Just in case my Uncle has a complete 6 cyl. sitting in a garage, tranny and all with all the peripheral stuff still on it.  Only need to find a clutch assembly and the linkage for the 'tree' This one comes with the original 3tree column .

It will be a lot of work .

That's a great price for a nice daily driver. My son put a lot of time, money and effort into his 64 rambler. And it's a daily driver. Cheaper to buy them done than do them.

not trying to scare you but be careful with "minor" bondo spots. If this truck was restore and or repainted in the past it can be hiding a lot underneath the putty. 

 

 

In the photo below you will see what appears to be a little rust.

In reality it ate the whole wheel well

Takes a lot of work and money to get these projects back together.
