My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5 years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in it.

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years
ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough
looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been
tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase
fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine
purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous
owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every
1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes,
but we will take care of that at a later date.
