Change of Plans...

I originally found a beater F250 to fix up and finally get around to trying out a WVO conversion. I quickly realized i had a lot of work to do to get it looking and running half way respectable. It has a good motor and trans but that's about it.

I ran into a fairly good deal so now i will be putting the motor out of this one...


In this one....Anyone notice anything wrong about this picture? (Besides the two-tone)

Given the patchwork quilt effect, that's probably a swapped-on fender.

And +1; yeah, CCSBs are cool and kinda rare trucks, but that two-tone looks sweet. Just what makes it a "beater"? Missing an Alcoa...

How much you wanna bet there's some cancer hiding under the flare on that CCSB?

The Crew Cab is an F350. Turns out the frame was cut down to fit the short bed. The guy that did it runs and owns a welding shop and it looks to be fairly seamless. I'm still a little leery of it though.

As for F250 that picture was taken wet and the body is pretty shot. The drivers side door and front fender are in pretty bad shape. Looks like the door was left open and backed into something. 4wd is a no go and needs some front end work.

wow, why not just get a 250 and swap in a d60, virtually no difference other than the 2 inches of ride height, and a d60 and some ratings on tow capacity between a 250 and a 350, but if you shop the frame on a 350 down seems like the newest weak point, hope you got some sweet deals on those, but i dont think i would want a frame hack job, what powertrain is in the ccsb anyway?

As long as the steering ability is intact and it is a four wheel drive truck (front driveshaft)
