    Damn... I'd say you got off fairly lucky with just a vibration.

     It was making some pretty hideous clunking sounds when taking my foot off the clutch in gear.

    But yeah, this is the sort of thing that turns into a transfercase/axle rebuild. $60 later and everything is back to normal.

     dooooo it. So much fun to drive. If you do get one that's already built and save some cash. About 300-350 HP is the sweet spot for a stock body.

     I used to think that, now I think they're kind of rad. A notchback on Weld Draglites and some fat tires out back is one of those timeless car-wheel combos, like an E46 M3 on LM's or an S13 hatch on staggered TE37's.

    (I'm no doubt going to catch shit for that)

    Notchbacks are more expensive and less sexy than the lx. If you want the benefit of less weight just pull the spare and back seats.  not a huge fan of those rims actually. Cobra rims are wayyyy more sexy. I wouldn't stagger on a foxbody either unless its a strip only car. They handle so so bad with staggered rims. The aod tranny sucks a bunch of power too. Foxbodys may not be beautiful but they are easy and cheap to make fast.

     Notchbacks are more expensive? That surprises me, I like the styling better though. I wouldn't be in the market for one any time soon but I love a stout V8.

     Bought the truck. Pics coming soon. What crack me up the most though is that everyone I tell about the purchase automatically goes, "Is it that green monster outside?" I guess the truck fits my personality.

    I love the green, if you decide to restore, paint it the same color. Just curious, how much did you pay for that thing? It's pretty awesome.

    Agreed, leave it as is. Your not going to improve on the current look.

     The Hood has a patina but the rest is rough. We'll see what I come up with. First is the tune up and I think the drive shaft is a little warped. Then onto a set of bigger tires. Thunder decided to help this morning.

    I still can't believe you got it for $975, I see them on craigslist going for $1500 without a motor.

     It's a 79 F150 with a 351M(kinda crappy) NP435, and NP205. Motor was rebuilt a few thousand miles ago and it's just been sitting on a farm for the last few years. Figured at the very least I could sell the drive train if nothing else and get back at least half of the price.

     6 hours and 4 U joints later the rear drive shaft is back in and running perfectly. No more vibrations that threaten to rattle the truck apart at 45MPH. And after a 1 day hiatus the fuel gauge has decided to report again.
