Effy 64 F100 Cruiser n hauler

I bought this F100 in Arizona when i was there last year, finally managed to get it home.just after new years

I was lucky enough to have it stored n tinkered with at my mates in Tucson,
I even managed to drive it around to a couple of cruise ins while I was there,,

Its a 2 owner 1964 Custom Cab F100, running gear is a Y Block but the previous owner has upgraded the Y block t a 312 T Bird version.. however its holding a typical old F100 4 speed non synchro box...
After the intial fun wore off its actually pretty average to drive,,,Drum Brakes n no Power Steer along with a Beam Axle n twin leaf springs have come a long way since 1964 ,
The plan is to keep it LHD , a bit of a clean up n get it regoed , then a few mods n Engineer it ..
Ive managed to get hold of a whole XJ6 for the princely sum of $200 , however its missing the Motor n gearbox...
I really only bought it for the front end, after much musing over how n what to do with the front end a Jag seems like a reasonable choice .
I intend to fit Vintage Air n have Heat Demist n most importantly...AC..
The diff will remain 9" for the time being but probable cop a gearing change... After some discussions with some 60s F100 owners Im going to flip the front pair of the rear spring hangers to lower the back about 3"
At the front Id like to get it down around 3/4' without hitting the deck anywhere.
Interior wise Id like to keep a Bench seat so as to allow 3 people in the front legally ,the stock ones been re upholstered n is tidy but not brilliant.
Im trying to look at various options for re-powering her, lots of options but after a lot of consideration n thinking I wanna be able to jump in m drive 200/300 ks easily n reasonably efficiently,,, have a decent Altinater n power steer pump,..have power to tow my Camaro or a trailer,
An importantly be bloody reliable....plus be a reasonable power plant n importantly,...some thing that is neat to look at..
After looking at Windsors,..Big Block Chevy n Fords Small Black Chevys .. LS motors Ive decided to keep it Ford.....
Im thinking an XR6 Barra 6 Turbo motor n Auto box..

Pics don't work for me. Coyote motors are huge and require serious work to get to fit. That's why most old effies have chevs in them �� I thought about a barra but I really like the v8 noise ��

Got a couple of things....
1/ How do I load images again,,,as these dont seem to be working ....

2/ I sourced LHD Jag reco rack out of the states,....
3/ Sourced a AUXR8 for the drive train n bits.....including Engine, Gearbox, Radiator , AC Condensor fans etc....also thinking power windows, n a few other bits out of the AU..
4/ I have a buddy in Georgia USA who has built one very similar,...hes fittd a 8.8" out of a Ford Explorer, which is 2.4" narrower has a slippery diff n discs.....Ive managed to stumble onto an 8.8" disc braked n 3.7 LSD Explorer diff n used it..
fitted my Jag front end n fabbed a couple of bolt in engine mounts on the Jag front end
5/ Had the chassis blasted, n cleaning it up of all the old bits,...
6/ sourced an EFI tank out of an XG/XH Falcon ute..n made mounts..

next week sand n paint chassis n strip front end to paint n rebuild.....then fab new Fuel line and brake lines...
have 8" double brake booster to fit to firewall n new 1 1/8th " master cylinder.

Sorting a steering column is the next item after that

Any help on posting images would be appreciated


Al

Nice score Alan. Here's the only pic that's loading. (Is VERY small, that's why distorting when I enlarged slightly)
