    Waaa Hooooo!:D :D :D



    Finally got a truck tonight!!!!!! And god what deal!!!!



    It’s got a 350/4 speed/203 and a 12 bolt/D44 combo. It’s a “50 footer” body wise, lots of bond but it looks OK. The motor runs well and he says it has 4:56’s in it but it’s hard to tell with the 4 speed. The best part appears to be the cage work. It was set up at one point in it’s life for coils, so it has a pretty decent engine/roll cage.



    We pick it up tomorrow night so I will get some pic’s posted as soon as I get it home…..I just couldn’t wait to tell somebody!!!

    Wow, nice find. The 203/4 speed is almost an urban legend, nice catch.

    What year is it? after 198 (or so) is is probably a 208, before 1981 it is a toss up beween a 205 and 203.

    It's a 74 so maybe it is a 203. As excited as I was I may be wrong but regardless, I happy with it.

    Floor boards are in pretty good shape, lot's of bondo in the rear Qtr's...but hey, for what I paid and what it will be used for, who cares! :thumb:

    It's been a long time since I bough a new toy, I had the Bronco for about 8 Yrs and I fogot how exciting this is.

    This is by far the most "Built" vehicle I've ever purchased so I'm a little concerned about safety and function but again, it was under my budget so I just couldn't pass it up. I really wanted to avoid a stick...... I'll just have to swap it out when I get a chance.


    It's amazing how slow my work day is going...........I can't wait to get out of here!

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    You can always cut the outer bedside skins off , and leave the inner walls up , will narrow the rear :grin:

    This is a 205. See the 3 bolts holding the itermediate shaft cover on? (in this photo, you can actually only see 2 of them....) The 203 is big and heavy and won't have this cover. The 208 is aluminum and so it looks different and is much lighter.

    74 was the only year the 465/203 was offered. That is what makes it rare. If you deside to sell the manual tranny/tcase setup let me know. Sounds like an awesome score. 208's were not offered until 1981 I believe.

    as for the 465/203 the only thing that sucks is it is a 10 spline with a coupler.
