1966 Ford F250 Crew Cab w/ custom chassis
1966 Ford F250 Crew Cab
This rare Ford F250 Crew Cab also known as a Six Pack back in the 60′s came out of Iowa and was used by a company called Higley Construction. It has been highly altered since it showed up at our shop here in Tennessee. We started by converting the chassis to an independent front suspension and a triangulated 4 bar rear. Because of the length of the vehicle we also opted for a two piece drive-shaft to keep from sectioning the floor. The frame has been stepped up in the front and the rear and fully boxed. Also, a set of Firestone air bags were installed at each corner for ride quality. When it came time to pick an air management system to control the suspension we went with the full Accuair setup. This is a self leveling air management system that has direct control of each corner or three preset settings of your choice. Its as easy to program the settings to your liking as it is to set a preset on your radio. It has a 10 gallon air capacity so that you never have to wait on any air pressure, always plenty on demand. Everything has been painted except the exterior of the truck because we liked that it still wore its original paint. Under the hood and inside of the bed were sprayed Wimbledon white for a cleaner look and to give the next owner a jump on an original two tone paint style. The chassis has also been completely painted top to bottom. You can see these details better on this site under the custom projects section along with the rest of the work that was done. The truck rides on a staggered set of 20×8.5″ front and 22×9.5″ rear billet smoothies and Nitto 555 tires. The engine is a stock 302 roller motor with all the goodies and accessories attached to an AOD transmission and 9″ rear. Lokar lines and shifter were used along with an aluminum radiator and fan shroud with electric fans and a billet overflow. Cal custom valve covers, breathers and air cleaner were used to top it off and all of the plumbing was ran with AN fittings. All of the sheet metal work that was in need of repair has been completed and painted. We just cleaned up the interior a little so that the next person could personalize it to their taste. We started with recovering the dash and the seats and adding carpet front to back. The list goes on and on so feel free to come in and see this truck or feel free to give us a call.
