Default 1972 F100 importing to the UK

Hi people,
I've just joined the forum.
I'm located in the United Kingdom, and have just bought a 1972 F100 pick up from the USA , and am in the process of importing it it the UK.
I guess this is the place to find out all about the F100.
It's a 390 4 speed. What sort of BHP do the 390 cid engines pump out.
Cheers
Johnny

Welcome to the site BHP? British Horse Power? Always thought HP was HP, did not know horses were different over the pond.
I think 390 CID is 6.4L I'm guessing somewhere between 300 to 355 HP depending on the version of the engine.

Good luck with your truck, and have safe trips.

I’m looking for a bench style front seat with fold down armrest. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
