to say that I'm excited....is an understatement. I'll be keep an eye out on this :)


I'm not sure if the np435 came stock...might be a Srod.

Joe, thanks. So a Srod is a 4 speed with OD and no granny gear, correct? What is the shift pattern (where is reverse)? Is that what yours has?

Score!!!

I went to Hub Cap Annie's today and picked these up for $20 + tax for ALL 4! I thought that was a pretty good deal.



All are in very good shape. On eBay they were going anywhere from $10 to $50 (for NOS).

Then I went to the local pick-a-part and got 4 stock steelie rims for $10 each plus core plus tax and it ended up being around $60 for all 4. Again I thought that was a pretty good deal for stock wheels with minimal surface rust. They should clean up very nicely.



You have to use your imagination a little, but try to picture the rims bright red!



One of the rims had this tire on it.



Coincidence? I think not . . .

Honestly, you'll have to confirm with Abandoned, but my reverse is left and up. But I did have a granny gear (or so i've been told, only had a handful or two of times I actually drove my truck)

I'm digging the wheel color combo bud

The shift pattern on this one is right and down for reverse.

Thanks Rick. I'm hoping they give it a cool retro sleeper look!

I powerwashed the wheels yestereday and I'm painting them today. Did I say red? I meant BRIGHT red!

This is just proof of concept to see if I really like red steelies with dog dish hubcaps. So I just hit them with a wire wheel to clean off the surface rust, and primed and painted. The back sides will remain black with only the fronts painted red.







After the paint dries some more I may put on the hub caps to see what it looks like.

Here they are with the caps just set on top - didn't want to scratch the paint!



Still need to clean the caps better and maybe polish them.

Looks like a 435 in your truck, just by looking at the shifter. They came in the I6 trucks in the early 80s from what Ive seen anyway. They had the squiggly looking shifter.

Lookin good, I dunno about those hub caps though, I myself would rather have the plain 70's model ones

Can one ever have enough Fords? I think not!

Gary I will give you an A+ for being different. Not my style but I am sure you will make it look good.

LOL. I'm not sure it's my style either! I can always change them out later if I don't like them. I went thru the entire 80-96 "Post a Pic of Your Bronco" thread and only saw 1 FSB with dog dish hubcaps (over 1000 posts). I guess that should be telling me something!

My plan is to take the wheels with new(er) tires up to CO next time I go back up. And then just switch them out. Hopefully with some brake work, a rebuilt carb and a new battery it will be drivable back to TX. Then I can clean it up and start on the body work.

Yeah, I like the plain ones too. But these are correct for the year, I believe.

Those are the wheels and caps that came on my 82.
I liked the look but it did get old fast for me.I switched out for steel spokes instead.

The red wheels might look cool, maybe some chrome outer rings on them might tone it down some.
