As most of you know I just finished rebuilding my 65 F 100 Ranger. If you aren't familiar with the 65 Rangers they were factory bucket seat trucks with a console and are rarer than hens teeth with very few being built. besides this board I also frequent a board called the Slick 60's. Slick 60's is devoted to the 61 to 66 Ford pick ups. My 67 N has the same cab as the 61 to 66 models so they drafted into their group. With the acquisition of the Ranger I now have two trucks that fit into there group. They are having their national convention in Altoona Iowa 25 to the 29 of August so I am getting ready for that. The plan is to haul the 65 up with the 67N. I have missed every truck show this year including the ATHS show in Pleasanton because of my mothers illness, she is lots better now and I have a lady lined up to stay with her while I am gone. I have a 48 foot trailer with a five foot dovetail that has a set of skids for loading cars. I have been working the last few days re flooring about the first eight feet of the trailer. I am putting my 60 inch sleeper on the nose of the trailer just as I did the old trailer I had. I had been wanting to re floor the trailer for some and didn't want to put my sleeper on until it was done. With time to leave coming up fast I thought I would do the first eight feet and get the sleeper on and then do the rest after it cooled off a little. That way I would not have to remove the sleeper to re floor the trailer.

Michelle, I would like to see a pic of your trailer with the bunk on it. Am I mistaken in thinking this is not the flatbed you usually pull with the N?

Here are two pictures of the trailer one with each truck. Wayne, it is the same trailer I had with me in Southbend. I used to have the bunk on another flat the I have. The first picture is when I was loading up at a show in Altoona Iowa, the second one was in front of my house after returning from a car show over in the next town.

The bunk was on this trailer first. I had just returned from Huntsville Ala. in 09. I got in about midnight and just parked in the driveway and went to bed. I got up the next morning and washed off all the bugs and unloaded my car
