1978 Ford F-100 NO RESERVE Custom Harley-Davidson paint & interior
1978 Ford F-100 Custom "Harley-Davidson" half-ton short wide bed (SWB) pickup truck. This truck is a classic tribute to the contemporary factory Ford Harley-Davidson Limited Edition trucks, and features the tasteful special details of the modern version combined with the with the classic body lines and styling of the 1978/1979 model year. This is an early 1978 model, featuring the highly desirable round headlamp treatment, which was a carryover from the 1977 model. Definitely one of the coolest and best-looking trucks on the road! The truck is restored, and is essentially new inside and out. Details as follows:
Started with a very straight and completely rust-free original factory Silver short/wide F-100 as the basis for this Harley-Davidson theme build. All the exterior trim and glass was removed, and the entire interior removed as well. The truck was treated to a high-end 2-stage RM Diamond two-tone Onyx Black and Silver paint job, using the Ford factory H-D Limited Edition paint codes. Multiple base and clear coats give the truck a beautiful, deep, and mirror-like appearance that far exceeds what it came with new. The Black Onyx paint has a very subtle metallic pearl that only shows in direct light; The interior sheet metal was also completely repainted and restored as well.
All the exterior chrome is new, including the new front and rear show chrome bumpers, new factory "sport" rear-view mirrors, new door handles, new door locks, new antenna, bumper and other bolts, fasteners, etc. The bedside "H-A-R-L-E-Y D-A-V-I-D-S-O-N" stainless steel finish script is a genuine Ford part, and a perfect match with the new Ford stainless steel wheel lip moldings.
The tinted windshield is new, and the side and back glass are unbroken originals. The front and back window glass gaskets are new. New door window felts and wipers have been installed along with new window channel, and new door weather stripping to finish out the soft seal replacement parts.
The bed is also completely rust-free, and has been treated to a brand-new Raptor high-end spray-in bed liner. It has a drop in bed liner over the spray-in liner. The tailgate is in beautiful condition as well. The underside of the truck is also completely rust-free and fully detailed, as you can see in the pictures. The floors, rockers, frame, cab mounts, corners, etc. are all exceptional and rock-solid.
Panel and door fitment are very nice.
The interior features a fully restored and repainted dash, full interior body-color repaint, new molded carpet kit, new seat upholstery and foam, restored sun visors, restored steering wheel, restored rear view mirror, new headliner, new dash pad, new door panels, new armrests, etc. The gauge lens was removed and polished, and the gauges cleaned. Basically, the interior is completely new and beautifully restored. The gauges, turn signals, brake lights, headlights, heater, wiper, etc. are all in working condition. There is a contemporary stereo installed, but not connected.
The engine is the original 302 V8. Runs good for a 1978 motor.RV cam, lifters and springs, valve job and seals were installed, and the engine sounds healthy and is very responsive. Fresh tune-up parts, fluids, and filters just done. New side NASCAR-style exhaust and Flow master muffler look and sound great. new battery.
The C4 transmission is completely rebuiltand newtorque converter on 6/10/2016. New kingpins and ball joints alignment on 6/17/2016.
The truck drives nicely, tracks straight down the road, and steers well. It brakes well and straight; the truck is a lot of fun to drive. She turns heads wherever she goes.
The wheels are brand-new 15" x 8" Daytona black Nascar Daytona steel spokes, wearing excellent fat BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. New Monroe gas shocks round out the suspension.
I have over $20,000.00 into this truck. Would trade for a Harley, The Harley would have to be worth over 15K to trade. The truck still smells like fresh paint!
