Well, I was surfing the www when I happened across Hot Rodders Bulletin Board. I thought it looked like a great place to hang out so I signed up. Posted below are the specs on my hot rod.

Since I plan on making a few more changes to the set up, this looked like the right place to be.

Old yeller- welcome to the site!
Your truck sounds pretty cool. Gotta have 3 pedals for it to be a real hot rod ( I hate automatics) I saw the pic of the frame in the bed on your other post . It looks like it is "C"d alot.

This is a good site, lots of good people with a great deal of knowledge.

I got a truck called Old Yeller too. Mine is a 72 ford f100 shortbed that I bought from the original owner. (it was my best friends dad, I remember the day he bought it new). He'd be pissed if he saw it now. It is a beater, but loves to run.
I have a 351 windsor and a toploader 4 speed that are going to get put in when I have to replace the 302 for the fourth time. (345000 miles uses up them 302's)


My sister in law has a 70 shortbed chevy with the same basic setup as you. That truck is a sweet driving truck.

IMO,There is nothing better than having an old yeller truck.
Later, mikey

Thanks for the replies guys.

Mike, I know you'll enjoy getting that 351 in your truck.

As you have no doubt observed I'm always a fan of more power.

Yes Old Yeller and I have been around for a while, 16 years and counting.

I'm still waiting to get him painted so I can roll out the pics. The guy I wanted to do it can't get to him, so I have someone else coming to look this Thursday.

Here's a link to Old Yeller. As you can see he is a long bed step side. Not your typical hot rod truck but if you read the text you'll see why I'm so attached. And I figured if nothing else, when I get done, my great claim to fame will be that I have the fastest long bed step side on the planet, if only by default because no one else would ever do it. lol

Old Yeller 1970 - That is quite the story behind your Old Yeller. Glad to hear you will finally give it the coat it deserves.

Thanks, as you can see we are permanently attached.

It reminds me of the time before I met my wife I was seeing a girl who drove a very respectable and economical Toyota.
She commented (more than once) that I should sell Old Yeller and get something more fuel efficient.
I thought to myself, Old Yeller was here a long time before you came and he will be here a long time after you are gone. Needless to say I was right.

When I met my wife in 1972 I was driving a 53 Pontiac. She loved it. I kept her and sold the Pontiac later. She has helped me with my cars and trucks and helped me out at the rod runs with the kids games. She is still a strong supporter of me and my other passion. Best decision of my life.

I can relate to that.

My wife has always liked my truck even before we were an item and has bent over backwards to let me restore it. To illustrate the point she inherited $5000 from her Grandmother. It was all her's and I can honestly say before The Almighty that I never asked her for a penny of it. Would you believe she gave me the whole 5 grand to spend on Old Yeller. How cool is that?

Of course it didn't take long to spend. 3K rebuilding the engine and $1400 on new body parts plus $500 on various other items. All I need is $3000 more for the paint which will come from the equity when we sell our house.

She also cooks 3 square meals a day and keeps me warm at night (if you know what I mean ).

Before we were married she even helped me clean up the 5 lug rear end off the '71pu before I installed it.

I can't brag on my wife too much.

Ahh, she just called, supper's ready.
