What was the first year Ford made a dually pickup? Was a club cab or
crew cab available? I have a '79 F250 Camper Special Club cab which I
installed a 4:11 posi dual rear from a rescue wagon in. I've got a C6
with a US gears overdrive and a overbored, ported 460 w/cam, headers
and 3" exhaust. Still smokes all four tires with 120K on the engine. I
love the vehicle for towing my 24' enclosed racecar trailer, but the
cab body is gradually rusting away. I was wondering about finding a
rust free dually that this driveline would drop into but would like to
know the if a dually was made in 1979. I've never seen a dually made
before around 1980.
Yes that would be easier, especially since he seems to have a good driveline.
truck cabs are an easy swap. Problem is, those extended cabs rusted really bad
structurally in rustbelt areas. I know 3 people who are looking. If you know of
your neck of the woods, give me a holler.
