1973 Ford F-100 reg cab solid rust free cab and bed

Up for bid is an 1973 Ford F-100 133" wb standard bed pickup that has spent most of her life sitting in a barn in Bakersfield California. It does not presently run and was acquiredprimarilyfor the cab and the bed to be used on a 4x4 F-250. This truck is being sold as a roller parts truck not as a running and driving truck. If you are restoring a rusted and dented Highboy you could buy cheap quality Chinese made reproduction panels and have a pieced together American truck with Asian parts or the real deal with Ford made OEM parts.It would be difficult to duplicateoriginal old man patina from Kern county . This truck was built in California at the San Jose assembly plant in Milpitas California. It was ordered by a dealer in Bakersfield and sold to an old man who stopped driving years a go and it has sat. This is a base model Custom ½ ton reg cab long bed pickup which shares the exact 133 inch wheelbase as the 1973-1979 Ford F-250. This truck is a 2wd with just one option a 302-V8 and the standard 3-speed manual on the column. It does have the same 3 pedals used for a 4 speed manual. The rubber on the pedals and the rubber floor show an overall lack of use. At some point many years ago the truck developed a carburetor issue thatwas neveraddressedand it was parked in a barn for decades. It has never left California and was brought from Bakersfield to Oakland where it was again parked in a building where it now sits. This 133-inch wheelbase has a very solid rust-free Cab and bed and would fit perfectly on the high boy frame the only difference is the high boy has a narrower frame and new holes would need to be re drilled as the2wd and the fuel tank on the F250 would need to be fitted into the cab of the F-100 as well.

This truck is being sold as a NON RUNNING roller and is being sold with a bill of sale as the title was lost years ago. This truck wasorderedSequoia Brown Metand is a true original Rust Free California Survivor that has been stored for many years in dry Kern county outside of Bakersfield.

The 1973 F-100 is a basic truck which overtime has become a parts truck which has had OEM pieces robbed off the old girl. Specifically theoriginal bench seat and when an old highboy with a snow plow needed an original grill and shell and bumper it was also removed as well as a few lug nuts otherwise she is a very solid cab and bed the way Ford built it. It would be nearly impossible to find an original San Jose built Highboy with a body and bed like you see here and would be worth a lot of money.This truck has been out off the California DMV system for several decades and has no record. It is being sold with a bill of sale.

If you wanted to bring this back to it's original glory as a 2WD half ton with a 302 and 3 on the tree I am sure with a new carb, grill and bumper this could be fun little project either way it is being sold this week for NO RESERVE and an opening bid of $100
