We’ll start out Matt’s project story at the beginning, which was only a few months ago When he purchased this sweet ’66 Ford F100.

Follow along as we see what he got and what he plans! Make sure to check out the pictures below!

Don’t forget, stories on Current Projects get updated as often as they have something new, until it is a completed project, so keep coming back to see what else he has done!

Success! You're on the list.

Make, Model, Year of Project:

1966 Ford F100 Custom Cab

What stage is this project in?

I just started this project.

So, why did you choose this vehicle?

My dad had a 65 when I was younger. That was the first truck my dad let me drive. Mine is a 66, so it is close.

What sort of condition was it in when you started the project?

Running, driving, stopping and looked pretty good, too. Needed a fender due to rust.

Engine needs to be gone through, ( it’s a 53 year old truck with the original engine) and some rust repair in the floor and a little on the roof.

Needed all seals for windows and doors.

What, specifically have you done, or had done to it?

Replaced the damaged fender, seals and badges.

Installed new door handles and door panels

I removed years of oil and paint from engine compartment bringing it back to original paint in engine bay.

New seals on engine, then painted valve covers.

New tires and brakes.

New headliner and window rattle kit

New custom wood bed interior are in the works, so I installed a bed cover to protect the wood bed in the future.

A little more about the truck. It has the original 300 inline 6 cyl, and 3 speed on the column. My plans are install a slightly built 302 and c6 transmission.

Where have you purchased your parts?

Parts have been bought thru NPD, found in salvage yards, online, and have driven at least 3 hrs one way just to get that special part.

What about you?

I am a carpenter by trade, but do plumbing for a living.

I grew up in construction and automotive field, however, not by choice back then.

Grandpa had a construction company that footed the bill for his dirt track race team. I grew up in the garage, in the pits, and on the job site.

Any stories regarding this project?

I’ve had 4 of these trucks slip thru my fingers over the years and now I finally have my (Eleanore)

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
