No late 70s or early 80s car pic is complete without the Cragar rust-o-matic wheels. Everybody had them. That 440 definitely helped get your nose down. Are those Lakeside traction bars?

I bet the AMT C900 or C600 Ford COE frame would work with a F150 body. Or at least that would give you the frame and rear axle to mod an F150.
