Here's the best thing you could do....drive around Lyden, Bellingham, and surrounding areas. Almost everyone has a Ford behind their house (i think it's State law to have a few) Very cheap, very easy to bring across the border. I have bought about 4 that way.

For sure it pisses me off everyone down there has old fords. Check the vancouver and seattle washington craigslist every day

i looked for one for years, your best bet is to go down to the states but even then your looking at 2 or 3 grand for a decent one

ha my suggestion is to go get a 78 - 79 then throw a earlier style front end on it.. probably be a lot easier expecially if you decided to restore the entire truck.. 300.. meeh good luck
