'65 F-100

It was a basket case when it got here. Rattlecan primer black that was soft and would peel with a fingernail, frame had been clipped (incorrectly). Slammed to the ground with air shocks and (I think) 10 leaf rear springs. Universal wiring harness installed (incorrectly), wired for a GM 1 (3) wire alternator, but had an older externally regulated alternator installed (oops). Distributor set up for clockwise rotation (it spins counterclockwise).

Didn’t go all out (eliminated bodysides to save expense of replacement per customer, cleaned up original bumpers as best as possible, cheap universal door mirrors, no new emblems, etc), but at least it’s now functional and presentable.
