I just bought a 1971 F100 off of my cousin, for a pretty decent price. the vehicle sat for two years covered up, but after bypassing the aftermarket coil, it actually started right up! I spent a ton of wasted time chasing a spark issue and chasing bees.

The truck was original with a 390, but has had a 1973 429 swapped in, with a torque manifold, holley double pump, accel coil, and headers.
I am not sure of other performance parts. I have a set of D0VE-C heads waiting shipment....

I have some work ahead of me with some rot, and it seems that it has all of the typical spots.

I will try to get some pictures up sometime, and also looking for some insight as to getting some panel replacement parts.
The biggest issue is the drip rail.
