My 67 (The mutt) build - Coming home

Well I went and picked up this 67 today from another member (the blue one). I am using the frame and he is taking the body back to hopefully salvage enough to possibly build a trail rig. When I sold the 70 last week I picked up a 76 parts truck that has power steering on it, disc brakes and a brake booster (but not much else). I also have another set of axles from a 76 that I have been sitting on as well. Yesterday I picked up the NV3550, I have a 97 Mountaineer that has been patiently waiting to donate its 5 liter to this build too. Tasker has a 3.5 inch lift, so I have everything but a few conversion parts to put a complete chassis together. The body will come later. Have all the parts for rear disc out of a 79 Lincoln but still may go with a vendors set up, and I have the hydroboost unit waiting to go in.

going to have to change the title since it is no longer a mutt. The body vin matches the frame and the title.

Well I got a little further in tearing down the donor to get to the frame, but not by much. I had to cut one of the hinges on the passenger door. The bolts broke off inside the door and the door cannot get past the bolts so I cut the hinge instead of destroying the door skin. I also pulled off the windshield frame and found some rot there. trying to lighten the load as much as possible before pulling off the tub. Then I spent a good amount of time cleaning the garage since I think I will be spending a lot of time out there this winter.

I need to tear down at least one of the 44's I have as well and get the housing up there for a cut and turn.

Dave I got the pm and will certainly keep you in the loop. If Mike decides to pass on the tub (not sure how salvageable it is, have seen worse I guess) I will fire up my buddies plasma cutter and remove it in pieces. Make some bite size chunks that can easily be thrown into the truck for disposition.
