    • Thanks James - I either missed or had forgotten (most likely) that post.

        Did not have $$ to buy a cluster from like Dakota Digital or other. I also wanted features no manufacturer offers. I used a new repop bezel and blended in the 2018-20 cluster So I could get all the features i wanted.

        • Just what I needed! A couple more projects. These ones a bit BIGGER projects.

          This is my beyond ultra rare 1966 N700 Crew Cab. So far have been unable to find another that exists or had existed. Searched high n low. Do know of a white '67 that was floating around vegas around 10 yrs ago.

          This one same owner 31+ years.

          Inside the head plans but its like changing weather.

                  Extremely Rare no doubt. This one is the only known 1966 N series crew cab. Around 10 yrs ago there was a '67 in vegas area unknown if a legit ford built truck. So far no other N crews of any year are known that I am aware of.

                    That would be fun! This one has a 330 HD gasser with a 5 spd trans and 2 spd rear axle.

                      Can't wait to get it home so I can first get it running driving then see what happens from there. Would love to do a full blown restoration but being extinct near impossible to find parts for. Will not know what route to take until I get it home and dig in. Not fun trying to get someone to haul it here.

                      • This LOOKS like a Great Rescue Project !!!
                        The only Scary Thing I see is those Old Lock Ring Rims !!!!
                        The Six Bolt Rims might be a Challenge to find in 10R 22.5's........
                        If shopping for 330HD parts......Check out those UHaul trucks in the Bone Yards.

                          That MPH Sticker on the Dash wasn't a Recommendation........It Was A Statement !!!!

                            Per ford books 3900 rpm should be top which is 66 MPH
                            I will probably keep it down to 55 MPH which is 3250 RPM Still seems high rpm vs modern stuff 70 MPH only 2000 RPM.

                            My current '66 F100 Project 2000 RPM will be 80 MPH in 10th Gear

                            I was able to find new 22.5 wheels and proper tires will just install new on front for now keeping current fronts for spares in the attempt to drive it 1500 mi across country.
