This is Gladys. She is a 1975 F250 Heavy Duty Camper Special. She was bestowed a double whammy of coolness from the Ford Motor Company. First, she is an F253, which is a heavy duty F250. She has a GVWR of 8100 pounds, which is more than a lot of F350s the same year. She was bestowed with the Camper Special option as well, hence the double whammy.
She originally came with a 360 Ford big block, but somewhere down the line, something happened and a 351M was swapped in its place. She retains the Original Borg Warner T18 four speed with the double low first gear. Out back she has a Dana 60 with 3.73 gears. Gladys is one heavy duty beeotch.
The 400 is hopefully going to make it into Gladys sometime soon. Although I am in no hurry as the 351M runs fantastic.
All of the "before" pictures of the 400 are in my friend PanGasket's truck. Had it not been for him going to get the engine I would not have it. He drove a long way to get it and I am in his debt. He has been a good friend.
