earthquake68 Posted February 24, 2013 Report Share Posted February 24, 2013 I found a '79 F350 wrecker a while back and the guy held it for me until I could buy it. It had been his yard crane for years and he finally just parked it. After it sat for 5 years, slowly sinking into the ground, we used a back hoe to pull it out of it's grave.A testament to old Ford trucks. I had it fired up and running in 30 minutes after we got it home. The brakes on the other hand were a different story. I had to replace all the steel lines, brake hoses and brake master and booster. I also replaced all the fuel lines and filter. I just took it for it's maiden voyage today. I still have lots of work to do, but it's well on it's way to becoming a useful piece of equipment again. ....and yes, it'll be yellow with "Hazzard County Garage" on the door. Here's a picture of what it looks like so far. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
