    Looks like a lot of work to fix all that rust. Knowing Mustie1 he gets it done.

      It's weird how he has comments disabled for the other video. First time for that. Someone must of been a douche. Lol

          Mustie1 get a decal printer and you can make your own gaskets. With the cutouts and holes.

            Where did you get the lug pattern gauge sets?

              I'm not sure why you turned off the comments in the 3rd video. But having owned a 65 Falcon Ranchero from 1977 to 1990, you may want to get that head magnafluxed, those heads are notorious for cracking either on the intake manifold part in the middle of the carb or where the exhaust manifold bolts in the center. In 13 years I had 2 cracked heads. I would look at dumping the 170 CU inch and go to the 200 CU inch. The 200 has the same head / intake manifold configuration but is not prone to cracking like the 170. Not picking just telling you of things I had happen with my 170.

                Buy ya some straights and some elbows and build ya a exhaust manifold. It's cheap and you can make it how you want 👍

                    I'm amazed you haven't soaked down that carb with Gumout spray first...

                        Those wheels look fab made for that truck we call them ross style wheels in the UK i had a set on my 70s cherokee jeep with big bfgs on all terrain they just seem to match any vehicle you put them on plus they clean up nice.

                            Wouldn't that carb jet push out from its detent on the inside of the intake just like a snowblower carb?

                              The fuel inlet fitting, there's probably a fiber or plastic washer in the kit that fits between the carb body and brass colored nut if it leaks again, another great video!

                                      Even if you live in Alaska I think that still would qualify as a surf truck. The paint scheme is sweet.

                                      My 80 malibu came with a set of those halibrand mags, wish they didn't disappear on me!

                                      Stick with the big ones....put extended lugs & a 1/2" spacer or two.

                                        I would see if they make a different manifold so that you could put twin deuces on it.

                                                Those wheels look amazing,. Also those old I6 ford truck motors were indestructible..

                                                Possible cheap upgrades?
                                                Rear is the older ford 7.5in rear, the 8.8 from an 86 mustang GT should be a direct swap if you want posi trac, you can also get a later model 300 from the F series trucks if you want to stick with the i6 and get some cheap additional power, or stroke this thing with parts from the 300. You could also 302 swap it, but i would look for an 85GT motor, they are roller tappet, forged internals, with the carb, the 86 goes to a roller cam but was efi. They all are forged internally till 91 when they changed to cast pistons. The manifolds from the factory were pretty restricted, just putting after market intake and exhaust manifolds will wake up that i6 Offenhauser makes the 4bbl conversion intake with ported and polished runners, it makes a big difference in how these older i6 engines run.. sorry for any misspelled words..

                                                  How sabout instead if dropping in as 302, 289, consider a Ford Ecoboost 2.3L inline 4 ti the Paddle shift transmission.

                                                              You could always put a narrowed nine inch in the back to add some power handling and also move the wheels inward. Love the slot mags, they really look good on it.

When my wife married her first husband (at age 14!) he had money and a collection of old cars. They had one of these, turquoise I think. They swapped the 'D' and the 'F' on the front. Whenever we saw one of these on the road she would call out "It's a Dorf!"
