1970 Ford F-100 Ranger (F100)
Last updated Jan 1, 2012
For now, this is going to be my rat rod truck. A full resto will be done in 5-10 years, maybe.
12/29/2011: Traded a 2000 F-150 for this 1970 F-100. All modifications up to this point have been made by previous owners. The grille is from a 1969 model - need to replace w/ a '70 model. The paint seems to be a candy apple red with silver pearl mixed in and needs a clear coat.
12/30/2011: Reconnected the speedometer cable, installed a Pioneer CD/MP3 player, and installed an inexpensive tachometer to get me by.
01/01/12: Happy New Year! Going to start the truck's new year with new valve cover gaskets and coolant temp sender.
