So I bought a 1971 F100 last week. Seemed pretty well optioned (Ranger XLT trim) and a good candidate for restoration, plus it's the same year as my mustang.

Well it didn't come with any documentation and the door tag has long since been gone, so I ran a Marti report to find out some of the history of it.

Turns out that not only did it come from the Ford truck plant in Michigan (the mustang is a Dearborn car), but it was also produced on the SAME DAY as the mustang - November 20th, 1970.

Thought that was a really cool coincidence.

What are the chances of both on the same day?
We use to make all of Fords aluminum grills we made those. I had to watch them toss hundreds of them in scrap I could not get them. From the 60's up until they went to plastic. We made galaxie, econoline, heavy truck, F-series. I still have a few of the blue prints for the galaxie. Great wall hanger for garage full size. 

 

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

If you have the ability to scan that galaxie blue print I’d love to have the file so I could print one.

Just stumbled onto this reply. No I cannot scan I am retired. They are blue lines and they tossed the original velums. That is what sucks. If you are familiar with the old prints they are drawn full size. Some of the prints we had for quarter panels were like 15 feet long. We had metal strip on wall with magnets to hang them up to view.
