Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

I finally got my brother to clean his up and still long enough to take some of these shots. We just put a new 350 in his about two weeks ago. His is the red and silver 83.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

terryks tht dash is amazing looks to be a corvette dash for tha main part then a 57 belair for the main instrument cluster. Very nicly done make me what to do it to my truck but getting a rust free 57 belair dash is hard. Have one but it for my 57 tho. once again very cool idea.

oh it a 59 dang still looks like what i said to me any way.

But it did say 73-87 short beds, that appears to be a late 60's Ford.

On a side note, I do like those trucks a lot!

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

Could also find an underdash unit. Would have to be sectioned out just as the dash was though.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

the car the blue dash was in. that not the same dashin your truck right cause man that looked like one bevery clean car to cut the dash oout of it.

Just would think it to be a shame to destroy a very clean looking car

Still like the idea tho makes me want to put a 57 belair dash in my truck.
