Default Project TimeWarpF100 45yrs in the Making...

Thought I would share the build of Project TimeWarpf100

This is a dream truck from a "Dream" that will be 45yrs old tomorrow when my dad pulled into the driveway with a brand new 1966 F100! Even though I was only 8yrs old It was love at first look...

In 1978 I bought a 1967 Mercury Capri with a Factory 425hp 427 & a 4spd with only 12k miles on the clock. It was then I thought some day I want a BRAND NEW 1966 F100 powered by a Dual Quad 427 Side Oiler.

Since tomorrow is 45yrs to the day when I fell in love with the 66 F100 body style, I thought it would be as good of a time as any to share my build of it.

This started out a a very very nice unmolested Arizona Short Bed Custom cab in a very rare Orange/White 2-tone.

Once it was torn down it was time to make carts for the cab and box to make moving them around and blasting etc a bit easier

I made the carts stackable for blasting & Painting. The box cart will also serve as an engine run stand.

Took a Cobra Jet C-6 out of the cobwebs and started a rebuild. Had an "ISSUE" with the trans case because someone put a bottle jack under it to "LIFT" the car. A quick weld job and back at it.








A custom torque converter was also ordered at this time...

A Yukon Gear Posi unit was added to the 9" rear supporting the stock 3:50 gear set

I then dragged the frame outside for a quick sandblast before bringing to the powdercoater along with other misc parts.




A few days later they called to say it was ready! They did a VERY NICE job on the parts. And at a price I could not begin to buy paint and materials for.

Great looking build and such clean metal to start with.
What type of stripper did you use on the paint/body?
