How the Superduty part started life. Rolled.



Frame-to-frame.



Shortened 2" to get the wheelbase closer. Didn't go the whole 4" because I didn't want to re-engineer the fuel tank straps.





Front cab mounts. The width was correct but the elevation and fore/aft were not.



Wiring went from this:



To this:



First time running under its own power. The box bolted straight to the existing frame holes (minus the front two after the frame shortening) so that's what set the cab elevation.



Besides the tachometer and the shifter, it's stock on the inside short of the 1982 E-series steering wheel (for "Resume" function on the cruise), ESOF switch in the vent opening, and the gray cloth bucket seats and center console from the 2002 donor.
