"Eileen"     1964 Ford F250

Introduction / Overview:

I bought this black beauty from a lady I worked with. She only wanted $500 so I drove it home. The engine is still basically Ford 292 Y-Block but now has all forged internals. Check "Specs" for more details of the build-up!

The bed is '67 Ranger, grille is '63 F-350, and the seats are turquoise '66 Pontiac Tempest. On the weekends, I like to bolt on the tractor paddle tires for off-road fun. She's a bit of a mutt, I know, but I only have a total of $1500 invested (the engine was mostly leftover parts) and I truly love toolin' around town with her. No AC, no radio, no 4-way flashers, no reverse lights, no fancy wipers, no power steering, and the heat is compliments of the headers running just beneath my feet. Security system? Well, I do have a "Folsom State Prison" sticker in the back window so not too many people are ballsy enough to violate her. Who could ask for more from a truck?
