1973 to 1985 Carburated Vehicles Emissions laden vehicles, but still simple enough to work on and we still love 'em!

Showing off in the interest of reviving some life in the forums and because I am bored off of my butt wearing a giant elastic brace to keep my abdominal muscles together. Diastasis Recti is a mother when you're used to being active.


Anyway, threads of yesteryear will show me mentioning a 1973 pickup and all of my grandiose plans. Well....In 2015 I finally finished it and it's nothing like I had described previously. Now it's on a shortened 2002 F350 7.3L 4x4 chassis. I built it in a 5-month time frame and did the paint myself. It's not perfect, but it's a driver that looks alright from 20 feet.

The dash was left stock with all factory working gauges. I used a Dakota Digital speedometer driver to spin the speedometer cable based on a VSS signal. It uses a B&M ratchet shifter and the 2002 bucket seats and console were installed. It's fairly stock with AD/80% injectors (yes, splits) and 4R100. It uses the ESOF four wheel drive and the TCS functions by way of the windshield washer switch. Obviously, it's Hydra/Cyclops controlled

I'll add more pictures after I figure out if this initial thread works.

Edit: I better make these pics a bit smaller.

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.
