1973 Ford High Boy Revival

I bought this truck in Arizona when I was working down there. It was an old farm truck from Denver that had seen better days. Paint was faded the bed floor was rusted out but the rest of the truck was pretty rust free. Spent a week in AZ getting it to run and drive a little then shipped it home to Michigan where I started a 3 month resurrection. 16 months later I finally finished it. During that year I cleaned out enough mice nests to make a pillow as well as a half a dozen black widow spiders. I upgraded the Axles to 2003 Super-Duty axles with 3.73 gear ratio and Disc brakes. Upgrade to an NV4500 5 speed trans, all new suspension bushings, added power steering. Upgraded A/C Compressor. Painted the truck Rallye Green Metallic and Ford Wimbleton White. Installed 2003 Ford Bucket Seats with Custom Leather skins. Installed sound deadening and insulation beneath the new Vinyl floor. LMC has been a great partner in getting this truck back on the road.
