Default my new toy / project

My dad decided that he didn't want his 1979 F150 anymore so he gave it to me. For now I am going to do some needed tlc to get it drivable again then over the winter do a major rebuild. Once I get it home I will start a project thread and get some up to date pictures.

Here's the only picture I have of it from back when we first redid it. It hasn't changed much from then just some different wheels on it. The body is real clean along with the interior, but the underside needs some work.

Nice truck. I have the 351M and the 400M, both have been very good to me

The short bed 4x4's are hard to find around here, I'd love to have one
