heres my 1968 f800 i bought it for $1400 it has a 391 industrial engine

Trying to get it started

the 391

found out the starter was locked up so i tapped it with a hammer and it wouldnt go.

took a picture of the underside while i was under there.


Radio still works too. look at the sticker Smile

a picture with the broken tow truck in the background lol

them tires 0_0

i thought these were pretty cool



and the coolest thing of al the tool box.

pulled the starter out

it doesn't even make a noise time for a new one

Bam went to the auto parts store and got a starter and a battery.

replaced the battery mashed the fuel pump with a empty can of carb cleaner to get it to work drained fuel tanks and sanded the points and she fired right up. sorry about this being a long post i didnt know of anyother way of doing it because i think every aspect of this truck is cool and i wanted you guys to see it. Videos coming soon.

The thing is in pretty good shape really. Even the interior. Usually, they're all rusted up.
