I think the newer battery trays are much superior than the Bullnose ones. The only issue I see is that the starter relay needs to be relocated, but that's easily done if you go 3G and don't need the outboard regulator.
That was a great song for our pleasure, but how 'bout some car music to listen to in this lounge?

Now the boys all thought I'd lost my sense
And telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
They said, "Slow down! I see spots!
The lines on the road just look like dots."
Speaking of music, growing up me and my sisters spent many hours in my dad's 84 6.9 supercab hauling grain to the elevator at 20mph. For a couple of those summers the Shell Rotella promo Farther Down The Road was a big deal (to us at least) and that series will forever be the music that sounds the best in a bullnose to me. I've put together a Spotify playlist from a number of the cassettes and am looking forward to reminiscing a little once Camano is back on the road.

There was a car show close to where I live yesterday and the wife and I dropped by for a quick walk through. Only a couple of Ford trucks there, and only one Bullnose. I've seen this truck around before, and I remember seeing it for sale a few years ago back when the current owner bought it. It was 400+ miles away at the time and had already sold by the time I could even consider going to see it. If I recall correctly it's an '85 with 351w and auto trans.
