Gallery-Page #1 - George Vaughn's Project Truck '67 F-100 

Last changed on: 22 April 2009.

Truck given to me by my Dad on 11-19-02. It was tagged and insured and still his daily driver. He titled it over to me.

If you look close you can see the original engine a 240CI Inline-6 sitting in the bed in back. Dad took it out in 1975 and replaced it with a 300CI Inline 6 and had saved the original engine in his barn all these years. The original 240 engine was taken to a machine shop and rebuilt top to bottom, converted to a 300CI and will be put back in the truck when it is restored.

This is the original 240CI IL-6 being delivered to the machine shop for re-building. It will be converted to 300 cubic inches. It has been sitting in Dad's barn since 1974.
