I bought it to turn into a street truck to take my boys to carshows, and cruise around on nice summer nights.

I bought this from a friend, It had been sitting in there driveway not running for 6 years and not on the street since early 2000.

Here is a pic the day I picked it up.
Image

The specs.

newer rebuilt 390.
Holley 4barrel.
C6 auto coverted to floorshift.
Power steering.
Disc brakes.
9' rear.
Body is pretty rough, surface rust, but not that bad.

After getting it running and removing the cab lights.
Image

The motor with new air cleaner, cap and rotor, points, plugs,wires and new coil.
Image

Image

My plan is to straighted the body and repaint flat red/white again, new rims with smaller tires and lower it a few inchs.

Removed the old stereo and door mirror. I moved the 3 lower dash mounted gauges into the hole where the stereo was. And installed a new smaller door mirror.
Also took care of all the "custom" wiring under the dash.

New mirror

Removed the rear bumper, waiting for the new roll pan to show up.
Image

cleaned up interior.

Next was some bed work. there was a dent from the front all the way to the back of the bed, This is my truck, so I wanted to fix the metal, not just look for a replacement bed.

Started by sanding and grinding down to bare metal and using studs.
Image

Image

This part was really mangled. I attempted to stud it and pull it.
Image

But winded up just cutting it all out and making a patch panel from scratch, using what was left as a referance.
Image

Image

And after alot of grinding.
Image

I need to replace most of the gaskets on the 390 in the 66, so I decided to pull the motor and put it on the stand to make it easier. I also wanted to clean up and paint the engine bay. The motor will also be getting a good cleaning and some new parts.

I found out the 390 heads and manifold are acutually a set of 428 matching set worth quite a bit of money. Here are some pics.

Old ford blue and black..

Engine bay cleaned sanded and painted blue and black.

And here are a couple of shot after driving it out of the shop. Still got a few things I want to work out, but its already been on a cruises. I am still needing a set of headers or stock manafolds. for a 428. These 390 headers don't have enough bolt holes and are to small.
