      1966 F100 450/510 Raptor Crate Engine 10R80 Combo

      My build is a 1966 F100 Short Bed Custom Cab

      Kind of a Sleeper Build but getting a infusion of MORE power, Better Brakes, Lower Ride Height, Updated Suspension, Tires & Wheels.

      The wheels for now are going to be custom made steels until its back on the road and I can find a step up again for better brakes for a 5 on 5 wheel "OR" I can find brakes and go to 5 on 4 1/2. Once its on the road that will be the next step.

      Engine is a 427 Side Oiler which will be displacing 482 Cubes
      4.25 x 4.25.



      Engine base is a new Genesis Block, 4.25 Stroker kit, CNC'd Edelbrock Heads, Custom Quick fuel carbs (750+cfm each). Intake manifold is a Factory Ford Tunnel Wedge Dual Quad. Oil Pan is a Custom 7qt Road Race Unit.

      Trans is a 1969 428 Cobra Jet C-6 with a custom Converter

      Rear is a 9" with a Yukon gear Posi Unit (tight version) Running 3:50 Gears

      This is prior to teardown. Other pic links lost. Updating links. 4/8/18

      A very long project. 1st pic my middle daughter who is getting married next weekend. Older daughter married with family. Where does the time go?











      From outside and a quick view of interior it will look stock. With exception of being a fair amount lower along with tire wheel package.

      Teardown time. Front clip is off and so is the cab along with the original
      300 6 cyl








      Building carts to hold the box and cab. The cab cart fits on top of the box cart for sandblasting etc

      I started to build this car but when I moved had to give it up.

      If anyone knows where its at I would like to buy it back. Last I knew it was in Tennesee

      Looks nice, those trucks had pretty impressive suspensions from the factory, at least for a truck. Are you planning any mods?

      Mods are: The 482" motor, adding 77 F150 power disc brakes, dropped I beams in the front, Power Steering.

      Also plan on adding front and rear bars but have not figured out exactly what yet. I expect it to handle pretty well as you say for a
      "truck". I will need help on chosing the proper sway bars. Not much made for these trucks in performance suspension or brakes.

      I expect the weight to be around 3650lbs. My modern day shelby is 3900...
      The engine is set back as far as I can get it without chopping the firewall. #1 plug is back of axle centerline which is good compared to most cars but still a truck. I would like to "track" it once its done then get into tuning the chassis.

      stripping of paint






      Arizona Truck so sheet metal is very nice for a starting point.

      Box floor had many small little dents. Started to shrink each one but decided to install new floor after finding out the 2008 Super Duty floor were near exact dimensions. 225 spot welds later...

      Engine, Trans and Rear Axle parts start to show up





      Very unfortunate someone put a bottle jack under the trans and popped a hole in it. Nothing a little Tig'n could not take care of

      My first Auto trans rebuild so lets hope it works.

      About the only real repair on cab was the cutout for radio that was kind of hacked. Easy fix.




      Chassis going back together

      Nice work -- My first vehicle was a Ford F-100. I loved that truck and hope to have another some day. This would do

      Thanks! My dad brought a new 66 F100 home October of 1965 and I fell in love with them way back then. Its what I learned how to drive in and what I used. He then gave me the truck around 1984.

      Do you still believe in all the things that you stood by before? Are you out there on the front lines, or at home keeping score?
      Do you care to be the layer of the bricks that seal your fate? Would you rather be the architect of what we might create?

      This is where its at right now. Still a ton of work left to do but finally looking like something has been done.



      Trying to do the complete truck for under 25k. Looks like it may be possible. A HUGE chunk of that was spent on the engine. Close to 50%
