1987 Ford F350 Cummins conversion with less than 90K original miles on both chassis/driveline and engine/trans. Overall good original unrestored condition. Engine is from 1991.0 Dodge Ram D250 Cummins Turbo Diesel that also has just over 80K original miles. (Full history known) Clean and Clear Diesel Title in my name. (Was original a 6.9 IDI Truck)

The Vehicle has been in full service, running and Driving as it sits today for the past year and a half. It has had ~6000 miles driven since conversion, with most of those miles on long road trips, and/or towing a 23' Toy Hauler. Any and all bugs have been worked out during this time, and I would consider the vehicle sound and in excellent mechanical shape overall to provide many years of service without any major maintenance.
