Default Dad's '79 Bronco build

I figured I would make a thread here because I know we are just bound to have a problem somewhere lol. Anyway, he had this Bronco forever, someone put sugar in the gas tank 15+ years ago and it has sat ever since. He just got the money to start fixing it, and things are sorta going into place.

All we have done so far is get rid of most of the rust, and bed-liner the floor of the truck. He had the original 351M bored out to a 400 shortblock, and we should get that fairly soon. He wants to buy a 1" throttle body spacer and an avenger 670 carb. Other than that he hopes to keep everything stock. Here are a few pics on the "progress" so far.

Here is the engine. It started out as the 351M, currently bored out to a 400 short block. He wants to paint it Ford blue and get it show room quality.

Haven't done much, my dad is back to work. All we have done is picked up a couple doors.
