Love it love it love it....the glut of LS swapped F100s I'm seeing lately have pushed me over the edge.  I think it's BS but I can at least see the logic in all the Fox body LS swaps as it's a better race platform with more support than any latemodel GM....but I just don't see the need for it with F100s.  Maybe I'm immature, but I like the big FU being given with that Cleveland swap.

In the 80's my girlfriend ( long gone) wanted a 53-56 F-100...Took me quite a while to find a Ford powered one..Finally found a 53 deluxe with a 351W...It was a fun truck...I always wanted to build a 53 Chev(car) and put a Lima in it just to piss them off...Back in my days of building 427 Cobra replicars we had customer put a 440 in one...Thankfully I never saw it compete..
1968 Mustang Fastback...427 MR 5spd (owned since 1977)
1967 Mustang coupe...Trans Am replica
1936 Diamond T 212BD
1990 Grizzly pick-up

Tom, There can't be more than one... :o Gotta be the same one. I've seen that Chevy pick up here in the Bay Area, Hayward to be more precise. It was at a Vic Hubbard's parking lot show they used to have before they went t*ts up. Pretty clean then, looks even nicer now. Thanks for posting.

I knew a guy in the way back that had a mid 70s Firebird with a 351C in it.  Said when the Pontiac guys would find out, it was death threats.  LOL
