71 Ford drag truck


426 pack

Recommended Posts

Finally decided to cut apart one of my moebius 70s fords so I can run some really big tires... the engine and rear suspension is from an old monogram pro street T bird. I haven’t gotten to far into the project yet and need to figure out front suspension as well as interior and paint but it’s so far off to a good start.

Are you going to make it a Ford version of the "Farm Truck"?  Like where you are going with this one.  Kind of tired of Nova, Camaro, etc. drag builds.

Yeah since discovery velocity started re running all the street outlaws over Christmas it’s all I’ve been watching and the farm truck is in my opinion is the coolest vehicle on the show so I decided to build my own version but since I have so many of the 67-72 Ford truck models and like just about every Ford truck ever built it’s a no brainer for me to build a ford.

Made some progress on the suspension today, the rear frame section is almost complete and I decided to throw a coat of paint over it to see how it looks.

I also figured out what I’m doing for the front suspension, it’s also from the monogram t bird.

I think I’m going to have to adjust the ride high in the front and trim the engine cross member because right now I can’t even put a peace of paper between it and the ground...
