New to me 73 Crew

Post by mtteo22 »

Hello all,

Tadd from Montana. Finally found a solid body 73-79 crew cab! I've been looking for several years and have been a little too late on a number of occasions until now. Oddly enough I found the truck within 20 miles of home! I've tried to buy as far away as Florida. Guess it was meant to be.

1973 Ford Crew XLT
Dana 60 front and Rear
390 motor

Been changing all the gaskets/seals/pans/ etc. to ensure I have a solid running, well-maintained truck for now. Already have a new transmission and a decent lead on a rebuilt 12v cummins. Looking to do full restoration in the next couple of years. I thought I'd be much further along by now but I'm loving driving the truck so much I don't want to break it down just yet. Will update on progress along the way.

Welcome aboard Tadd! That is a nice looking truck you have there! I'd love to see more photos of it.
I just purchased a 73 as well. It was also only a few miles away from where I live. Isn't it funny how that works out sometimes?

Pretty clean looking truck! I'd be real tempted to build a 445 or 482 out of that 390 for it. Sometimes the right one just finds you. That's how I ended up with my 77 CrewCab and both my 73's.
