That's a nice looking truck! I had a 72' with the straight 300 that I regretted selling.

Keep the stock steel.  Painted silver argent looks great with any body color on those trucks.   :twocents:

Love the old ford highboy's, you guys are making me miss one i had
1972 highboy sport custom i paid 500 bucks for with a blown motor, all stock till i got ahold of it
I put on 4 inches of suspension lift over and above the factory height then added a 3 inch body lift, black painted frame and suspension, gun metal painted front and rear diffs with chrome covers, chrome front and rear bumpers, diamond plate bed caps and homemade diamond plate door sills, custom made dual steering stab set up, rancho 9000's, tinted windows and rolling on Weld wheel super singles sporting 42 inch swampers and painted red. Oh and a mild built 390  :chuckle:
Its was quite the truck, got lots of looks etc, was my daily driver for 4 yrs even commuting to seattle from issaquah for a bit.
Sold it the first day i put a sign in it to a guy that drove by everyday drooling over it.

Miss that truck..

To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.
