Hi all, I have been working on my BKO for awhile now and time to start my build thread.
I have gotten a lot from this site, and figured I would share what I have done so maybe help
someone else of give someone else ideas.
My story started in 2014. I wanted a Jeep, but wasn't willing to buy another vehicle being that I
had a 77 F150 on the side of my house that I attempted to restore about 25 years ago and stopped after a
year (I got burned out).
This F150 was my first truck, and my dad had given it to me. He has since passed, so I decided on a 78 - 79
BKO thinking I could use the truck (being it was sentimental to me) so to the searching.
I started looking on Craigslist, Ebay and some others until I found something I could work with. My main objective
was to be rust free, and mostly straight.
and I found it.
it was a 78 and the previous owner had passed, and his son was selling it.. it seemed like destiny.
Seemed very straight, and no rust I could find.
the interior was a mess, but all there:
