Son just turned 16. Spent the last year working on his truck. Replaced: water pump, master cylinder, front calipers, pads, brake lines, some of the gas line, rebuilt carb(with guidance only), painted wheels and rear bumper, added stereo(he"s 16) and then replaced original 3spd with truck 5 spd trans.

That thing looks good compared to the first pix you posted when he got it! Cleaned up really good. I know he is proud of his accomplishment, and you are proud of him. I commend you both.

Nice job. Bet he learned a lot and has a real sense of accomplishment. Is it a 300 6 cylinder?

Yep. 4.9l straight 6 that came in it with 3 spd on the tree. No radio and not even cigarette lighter cause the old man that owned it was too tight. Paint is mostly original. He's spent HOURS compounding, waxing and rubbin' to get it back to the Ford Jade Green Metallic. And YES I am VERY PROUD OF HIM. He has learned a lot and has proven himself very good at turning a wrench.
