1968 Ford F100 1400 Race Truck Build

Well it's really a F250 but who cares.

So i got this truck a few months back in trade. Needless to say the truck needed a complete rebuild.
Only1Mikey and Myself will be doing the full build on this truck. With help for many other friends I am sure. We plan on racing it and using it as much as possible. Just a overall fun play/race truck. Some creature comforts but able to hopefully keep up at the big races.

Wouldn't be possible without help from company's like

Poly Performance Inc
Synergy MFG
4130 Clothing
FOX Racing Shox
Trail Ready Wheels


So here it is. Specs are as follows

1968 Ford F250
2" Score Legal Cage and Backhalf
3 Twisted Stitch Seats
Crow Belts

Front Suspension:
Equal length beams w/custom spindles D60 hubs
Convert to front steer
2.5 FOX coilovers and 3.5 FOX Bypasses
2.0 FOX air Bumps
May do center mounted radius arms, will see when I mock up

Rear Suspension
Rearend is D70 Full Floater
Full truss with removable diff cover
10.5" ring gear. 5.86 gears. Locker
4 Link. w/TT Motorsports Lower Links
2.5 FOX coilovers and 4.4 FOX Bypasses
2.5 FOX air Bumps

Custom 50 Gallon Harmon Racing Fuel Cell

39" BFG projects on Trail Ready Beadlocks
Hydroboost Brakes
AC
CBR Radiator

Motor:
6.0L warmed up
4L80e Trans Full manual Valve Body

Any questions ask away. Happy to help and answer whatever I can.

How it was when I got it. custom "backhalf" with Black Pipe instead of tubing. Broken upper link mount.

Start of backhalf and Cage. Going to try and do some things a little different and use some plate bulkheads throughout to make fab work look a little different.

A lot of it will stay since it is a bitch to remove. I want to put carpet and sound deadening in it once it's up and going and bugs are worked out.

Moved into a new shop. 4 linked a dodge for a friend and will get back on this hopefully this week. Have a quick deaver/14 bolt/bedcage swap to do on a silverado then back on this after that again.

Looking forward to seeing progress. I like that bulkhead. How much travel are you anticipating? Swing set steering?

Front travel should be around 22" strapped easily. Rear cycles 30" but will be strapped around 26 or so

Just finished up a Silverado build. Going to be linking/backhalfing my tacoma then back on this fulltime till it's done. Currently trying to source some beffier axle components for my D70 rear. As well as buy some more parts for the front suspension/motor. Fuel cell is now built as well and got the new 3.0 Rear Fox coilovers so i can finish up the backhalf.
