1967 ford with over 430,000 miles, cold start and run
James '67 ford f-100. 430,000 miles on it, including ranch-duty for
years.. it's a 352 FE Ford big block. The engine is stock except for the
intake manifold, and the only internal repairs have been 3 new valve seats.
Still reliable for every day driving after over 40 years and 430,000
miles.. Ford trucks kick ass.
Oh, and since it's in Boise, it still has to pass smog (1964 and up!) and
72 F-100 415 cu.in.
Video, more of a slide show really, of my 1972 Ford F-100. I wanted a
project for the fall and this truck was at my grandparents house, my dad
said the 390 in it was tired so I claimed it and made it my project. The
truck is real straight and the interior is like new. We rebuilt the engine,
bored it 30 over, and put a crank from a 428 in it, making 415 cu.in. I'm
not sure what the cam specs are, I could find out. No idea on what the hp
or torque is. We finished the truck the day after christmas and then drove
it with the motorcycles over to grandmas house for storage while I go to
back to school.
