New Daily Driver... For Now ;)

Until i get the mustang up i figured i would share the new DD. It is my 1967 F100 Original HighBoy with a motor swap 460 Big Block. Nothing fancy, single cab, short bed, 4x4 of course on 35" ties, Still in primer. Was the project i had waiting after the mustang but looks like it is going to come a little faster. Plans are a diesel conversion to a DT360 with an allison 1000 5 spd until i find a allison 1000 6spd.

Should be daily driving in a week or so. Just in time for Dec 21st :p hahaha

Goals with diesel build are 800whp so roughly 2500tq at the wheels. Twin turbo pushing about 60-90PSI roughly and might add propane/meth shot if its not enough. Body is going to also get redone with fiberglass once the car is payed off by insurance so i am out the whole for payments.

Will keep everyone posted on what happens to car and for parts and such. If things go well on my end i am looking at ordering a 2014 Mustang

All i am happy about honestly is no one got hurt. It could have been so much worse! Now its legal issues to deal with and insurance.



Dont mind the other trucks in the back round. This is the picture when i first bought it. Needs to be stripped to frame and gone through from the ground up. Going to be a hell of a project but needs to get done if i want to build it for the power i expect.

Thank you, all i have right now and so far she has come alive for the day, need to convert the whole system to electric fuel delivery and get a new carb and it should be on the road once the tires are done and new springs and shocks. Not to bad to make a DD for point A to B.
