'76 F100 beater
I picked up an F100 a couple months back, I set out to buy a Ranger as a DD beater and ended up with an F100 Ranger. $900 and it was mine. It had 76,000 original miles when I bought it. The previous owner had meticulously written EVERYTHING down in two little notebooks. Ever fuel fill up, ever tune up, every thing that ever needed fixed. It got an engine rebuild last January and the tranny and rear end were freshened up at the same time. It has the 360 V8 (390 with a 352 crank) and the 3 on the tree. No power steering, no power brakes, simple as can be and it runs like a champ. Its kind of ugly but I like it. Pics to come.
All I've done to it since I got it was throw a saddle blanket seat cover on the cracked vinyl bench. Did plugs, cap and wires. New air filter, oil filter and oil change. And new tires last week cause according to the maintenance books, it hadn't had tires since 1984. Lol.
