May 2015 - Got a rockin' deal on a 1964 F100 that was an abandoned project started by a guy who lost interest in finishing. The truck came with a recently rebuilt 302, a C4 tranny and partially mocked up Crown Vic front end. Small amount of rust in the floor, but less than what I've seen before. The plan now is to get it street worthy and take it to a fab shop to install the engine, mount the front end and get the brakes working. Probably a year long project - we'll see - here we go!

You gotta love the surface rust on this truck. Nothing damaging - Just right!

August 2015 - Finally made it to my appointment at the fab shop - Needfulthingz in Lancaster, CA. The Crown Vic front end was already mocked up but still needed some adjustments and welding needed to be done.
