The truck is a 79 F150 and was bought by my Dad 36 years ago. I began a full restoration/build on it myself in 2005 at age 15. I did all the body repair and paint myself while still in high school at age 17. The truck was originally a 300 six cylinder four speed truck that I have self built four 460s for with the current one being a 545 inch engine with trick flow heads and a BDS 8-71 supercharger/custom triple predator carburetor setup. A friend and myself also built up a C6 automatic that I swapped in it. I’ve put a sterling 10.25 axle out back with an e-locker and swapped it to disc brakes. It’s currently getting a 79 king pin Dana 60 swapped in up front to complete the one ton drivetrain. I’ve lifted it 12 inches total and it’s on 44 boggers with some old 15x16 SR28 weld wheels. The only things I haven’t done myself are the customer lettering/pinstriping and the reupholstery of the custom interior. I plan to reach as many shows with it as possible when I’m totally finished.
