Re: 1970 F100 Buyer Advice

It looks pretty good.
Check for rust in the rear cab corners, front and rear cab mounts, radiator to frame mounting points.

Not sure what to ask the owner except will you take less.

There are few truck forums, fordification is one I believe. And there are several pages on Facebook now.
Even pages for swapping Crown Vic suspension into F100's.

Good Luck
