Hi all,

Just joined as I might need some friends as I get challenges but wanted to say hi and share a pickup of my 1980 crewcab T3

If only I knew how to do that from my iPad on this forum ?

is it an air cooled?  has the triple vents over the rear arches, I have only seen these on air cooled crew cabs.
WHY T3's.... because they are just so adictive, and having one just aint enough

Hi....it was air cooled and you are right, they only did the 3 vents for the first 2 years...1979 and 1980. They then changed the engines and became water cooled.....mine is running a v6 3litre lump

Ford 3.0 v6 was very popular back in the day. Nice sounding but thirsty!

It should be fine, just a different shape that tristar / caravelle side windows.
Mk1 caddy's had one very much like that, I think only from warmer countries though
