This is a VERY modified vehicle with custom touches throughout. It has been daily driven and professionally maintained. Everything works. It starts, stops, runs and drives just as it should. The body does have rust but the patina you see is actually how its is painted. This is not a rust bucket. It just looks like one. Clean title.
The motor is a Ford 460 big block with a polished finish Holley 650 CFM carburetor. It has an Edelbrock performer intake manifold and an aftermarket air filter assembly. There is a custom Flowmaster exhaust that exits out the passenger side bedside and a custom accessory/belt set up to accommodate the Vintage Air air conditioning system. The motor is strong running and reliable and perfectly hits the mark between "kinda loud" and "too loud". It moves pretty good.
The transmission is a Ford C6 with a long throw shifter and the rear end is a standard Ford 9 inch (gear ratio unknown)
The sub-frame is from a modern Ford Crown Victoria. These are commonly swapped under older vehicles because they are easy to find, service and source parts for. The truck has air bags and shocks. It can cruise along with a normal (street-able) ride height and then go and lay frame and retains a comfortable ride. The wheels are steel with new tires.
Air Conditioning (brand new vintage air)
4 corner air bag system with LCD display (tank is approx 5 gal w/ 2 compressors)
Over sized Griffin radiator w/ dual electric fans and Mishimoto overflow bottle
Custom stainless radiator lines w/ Vibrant silicone couplings/elbows
Aftermarket gauges (Speedometer needs a cable)
Aftermarket Steering columnand steering wheel
Modified bed with raised bed floor (for laying frame)
Battery relocated to bed
20 gallon fuel cell
Newer black carpet kit
Newer black upholstered seat in great condition
Stereo hidden in glove box (Needs speakers)
(Because you are going to ask). I would love to tell you that I know how many actual miles are on the motor, transmission, etc but I can't. The vehicle has changed hands a few times and those records were lost along the way. I can tell you that it is a great truck. Runs like a champ, turns heads, gets attention and is really fun and reliable. Just about everything that needed fixing when we got it is fixed. It's a truck you can start enjoying today. It's not perfect. It's perfectly imperfect. Come see it. You won't be disappointed.
The truck is located in Gilbert AZ (south east Phoenix area) on Elliot Rd near Mesa Dr. and can bee seen by appointment Mon-Fri 8 AM to 5 PM. If those times/days don't work for you we can make other arrangements. I would just need a little advanced notice is all.
Please know that while I am a motivated seller, I am not going to give this truck away.Feel free to make an offer or ask me questions. I will do my best to respondpromptly.
Thank you for reading my ad and have a great day.
