Thats cool there were only a hand full of F100 that had a H/O 390 in them from the factory and had the badging too I found one in Washington their are even MERCURY trucks like this. I think FORD wanted a hot rod pickup and just testing the water to see if their was any demand for it. Their rear and hard to find I have only seen one H/O 390 mercury pickup and one ford 1968 and two ford 1969's like this. The beginning of the ford lighting maybe who knows.
Yes i am. I grew up with my dad owning a 1969 F100 that i now own. I have been working on a frame off restoration for the last 7 years on and off when i can afford to buy parts and work on it. I'm restoring it in memory of my dad who past away back in 1997. Just curious are you a member on the site http://www.fordification.com? Our engine setups are pretty close in the build aspect. Mine has a 390 that is .30 over edelbrock performer 4 bbl intake with a performer cam, Holley 4160 carb and stock heads been reworked to match the 428CJ valves
My bad, it is late and i am tired. Very important to get the combo right here on this for the proper sound. The glass packs need to come ahead of the Flows for the deep mellow sound of the 2 chambers to come last after the tone has been reducedby the glass. Not after
Would very much like to leave a suggestion for the muffler delema on this very very sweet shorty Ford rocket. In one of my trucks where i was running a 454 i ran with a couple of 2 chamber Flowmasters quickly followed by a shorty glass pack. Made for a sweet and classy mellow muscle sound and got alot of positive feedback. Had old school straight glass packs on a short bed 60 Apache back in the 70's and always thouhgt that the sound was just a little too harsh and unsuffisticated. Have tried many combinations of exhaust thruought my time to connect with the flow glass combo. Highly recommend the sound for any classy muscle.
