Default New toy

Got a new toy for doing work around the house. 1966 Ford f100, guy I bought it from had it for 30+ years down in California towing his horses, then brought it up here with him when he moved up here. Originally a 352, he swapped in a 302 with a c6 auto. Needs some TLC, but over all a solid truck. Surprisingly fits in the shop with the Datsun.

Thanks, was a nice find. Not perfect, but the body overall is pretty solid. Nothing major right now. Mainly bought for doing house chores since we didn't have a truck anymore besides our sons single cab, short bed frontier, so main plans right now are just making her reliable.

Long term, a bit of restomod.
More power (of course), just not sure if I want to stick with carbs that I know nothing about, or go fuel injection with something like fitech.
Disc brakes, maybe using the crown vic front crossmember, not sure yet.
New paint job
If I can convince here, extreme long term, coyote swap.

I would love boost, but we will have to see, wife wants to keep the truck quiet. most of the major mods (like paint and motor swaps) will happen after the kid isn't on our insurance any more, so we can get a newer modern truck and turn this one into a fun cruiser.

Thanks. She definitely makes the Datsun look a lot smaller.
