      Most of the time post with out pics are junk but $100 wheels may be worth the call.

      • Its too bad these 16x8 Wheel Vintiques are so pricey...

        I always thought extra wide steelies with dog dish caps made for a cool "stockish" look.

        Is there a cheap "leveling kit" for these trucks? I know its not 4wd...but a more level stance might look good!

        Besides this is all temporary anyway right? This thing NEEDS the prerunner treatment!!!

        • Switching gears now....

          It's only a matter of time until my wife discovers this pickup only has lap belts and flips out. This truck does not have the mounts on the B pillar for the factory shoulder belts. Those were only available in later years.

          So I may try to procure a 1998-2001 Dodge front seat with the integrated shoulder belts and see if I can retrofit it.

          • I think very late 90's mid 200x's GM's did that too - good call. The bench in mine will reduce me to tears in 300 miles.

            • I've seen the dodge seats in these Ford trucks around town...shouldnt be too hard to fit them

                    • we had a phone system that had a light that glowed green when there were 1-5 calls holding, yellow at 6-25, and red beyond 25 calls holding. Seems like all of us taped them over, seeing red all day is disheartening. It would seem like on that deal, the plan would be to keep it lit! Put it in your Mustang, I bet it doesn't go out at idle or any other time.

                        • New carby. To me at least. Speed Demon 750 vac secondary. Traded my 950hp to moparman63 for it. Came with the fancy fuel line.

                          • I thought you used parts from the 950 to build the 1050? Looks good!

                            You going to pull it apart, or stick it on as is?

                            • The 1050 got the Quick Fuel metering blocks and the bowls from the 950.

                              I took it apart last night to verify jets, PV and to make sure it is clean inside. Secondary side had a little scale in the bowl, but it cleaned off fine.

                              • NICE! Are you going to have time to work on this....or are Christmas plans going to put it on the back burner?
                                Set of wheels and this carb should put you on the road, right?

                                Oh, a conversation with Scotty J on 460ford about a custom reground stock cam might not be a bad idea at some point...
                                I think he can give you a pretty good price ($150 IIRC) and tailor it to your combo, better than something off the shelf.
