Hi Guys, well I found myself a nice little '88 F350 today & I think it'll do the job. A few bits to be done but mechanically seems fine with no rust visible in the bodywork. Thanks to those people who took the time to point me in the direction. Cheers Tim :) ;)


Well Tim are we going to see a few photos B) :(
Time to get up andd get going.......todays bad decisions aren't going to make themselves!!!

Hi Guys, just found this thread again (by chance) after ol mate Seed got me back up & running on the Forum. Thanks again Andrew.
Blackduck, this one is also a crewcab dually, 6 seater, 460 bigblock, C6 auto, Dana diff, 4 Alcoa alloys, canopy with good trim & carpets. Came from Camino California. It has faded paint drama's but that dose'nt stop it from being driven. I found it in Melbourne though.
Mairjimmy, sorry Mate, me & the camera don't do a lot together & when I do some they lose me in the computer. I used to send anything I wanted to put on the Forum to me old mate Choc's & he'd do it for me. Can't do that anymore, RIP Rick. If I can get one of my kids onto the job we'll see what can be done. Cheers Tim

Seed, many thanks for your assistance, Mairjimmy, with Seed's assistance we have photo's. The interior is as I bought it, the only changes were that we had to fit Australian seat belts (because American seal belts are NOT UV Stabilized). The other thing that sold me on this vehicle is that all 4 doors had no movement in the hinges( slop) & all the doors closed with just the minimum closing pressure. It had only done from memory 89,000 miles, which we were able to verify through the Californian emissions testing dates & mileage. Its now done just over 91,000 miles. It has Alcoa rims front & rear with steel inner wheels on the rear. The other thing is that to drive it you MUST like RED, seats, door trims, carpet, hood lining, everything inside is RED, but I'm getting used to it now. Cheers Tim
