Re: 73/79 type f trucks?

Wouldn't it be a lot simpler to just get a different truck or are they hard to come by in your area ? Is the cost to high to have the needed part's shipped from the state's ? We're eat up with the early truck's in my area.
I've managed to nearly rebuild my 77 F100 for less than $4,000 and this include's a new crate engine.




When in doubt :DON'T
