We drove to Shiner, Texas today to get a free Z24 that was complete. It came out of an 86 Hardbody that was titled as an 85 720. Probably one of the first Hardbodies to hit showrooms.
Three years ago, I got the transmission on a trade from the guy. Some time before that this guy removed said motor and tranny to put in a 283 Camaro V-8 engine and T5 tranny. Then removed the bed and put on a flat bed to use as a farm truck. Sometime after I got the tranny, he sold the truck(with a bed he got from a guy in Lousiana), along with 2 4x4 720's and a 4 door Pathy with a bad tranny for $2000. Dam I wish he had called me first, I would have bought the reg cab with the V-8.
Also picked up a set of 15" chrome Pathy wheels with super great tires for the truck for $100. Tires are a little bigger than what the boy needs for the truck but will work for now.
He then takes me in a building that looks like it might fall down anytime. His dad used to race back in the day. Used old Torinos and such. This building has enough Ford stuff to make a cool mint on used parts for people who are restoring cars to stock. Ford Cobra Jet motor intakes, exhaust manifolds, valve covers, etc. Even had 429 motors and all the trimmings.

After new rims and tires.

Gonna hang on to them for a little bit. Mainly to use them for throw down tires when the truck goes in for paint. But first I am letting someone else use them for the same purpose.

Since I am a MOD now, I moved this here where it should be.

Well, today I had to pull out my moms 26' travel trailer to get her ready for next weekend for her. I got my sons truck put next to it where my frame from "The Beast" was. At least thats what is left. Almost a bare frame.
I put on the 15" chrome Pathys. slid on the 1/4 cab sleeper just so its not on the ground. My son likes it. It I dont put it on my truck, it just may end up on his.
The free motor I got from a friend in Shiner, TX is coming along. When I got it, the cylinders who only give me about 5 psi. Now I got #1 and 2 giving me 90 psi each and #3 and 4 are at about 60 psi. Marvels Mystery oil is the shit. So far every weekend I have been putting a little in and cranking it around. I have turned it so much that the oil in the pan is actually circulating all the way to the top onto the cam shaft. Until I get close to the 128 psi for the Z24, I then will remove the head and send it off to the machine shop for a thorough cleaning and what not. I have already let the boy take many parts to school for media blasting and hes got them primered. Now we have to get him some paint.
