Rare, Unique Style, Attention Grabber, Cool Old School, Modern Drive Train with V-8 Power Steering and Brakes, Auto Transmission, $7000 in service and enhancements in 2015.

Such a unique vehicle with so many uses. Think about going to a show with some type of special car on the back sounds pretty cool! It may not drive like a Cadillac, but it has power steering, power brakes, V8 power, and updated automatic transmission, modern tune box, and is a lot of fun to drive and for people to see! I think they are kind of rare, a car hauler with this body. Owner bought truck in 2000, and he was a Ford dealer, and so It was taken care of.

Paint-
* Owner does not know the age of the paint, and purchased mostly painted as it is. He did have the sides of the bed repainted, and indicated that there was a stripping or design which he didn’t care for.
* The paint on the cab is all highly polished, and shines very well.
* The paint seems to match well all the way around, you might find a couple of fish eyes here and there, or a small spot by the mounting of the right mirror that is not quite as shiny.
* The sides and rails of the bed are pretty much polished to the same high quality degree.
* There are a few pin head size nicks on the front of the engine cover that have been touched up. I was unable to find any other nicks which makes sense because this is mostly a show vehicle. Though it has been driven and has had cars on it on occasion.
* I was unable to find any scratches but did find a scuff on the back side of the drivers side fender, which could be
from getting in and out. (See pics)
Body-
* The body of the bed as well as the truck all looks nice and straight.
* Looking at the fits of the doors, (and the vent doors) all look mostly uniform all the way around. (See pics)
* The engine cover could use a little bit of an adjustment to bring the mounts over, (small gap on right side) thought I do not think they where perfect in those days.
* The seals used mounting the fenders, is all nice and straight, and in good condition.
*We don’t see any dents other than a couple of small dimples on top of the roof that happened at some time.
Magnets-
* In taking 1 or 2 random samples per panel, we are finding that the material on the body appears to be at the 10-14 mils on average for thickness, with the fenders having slightly higher numbers(which would be common).
* In reviewing the bed, the readings are closer to the 7-10 mils range which would be typical for possible newer construction. Owner indicated bed sides were mostly sanded down before repaint.
Bright Work-
* The bright work of the side mirrors, exterior handles, door handles, and hood ornaments all have nice looking older chrome that shines well. They might have some minut, almost unnoticeable age, but shows very well.
* The chrome on the overhead cab lights, and the air horn do have some light pitting to them, as well as the (Ford) emblems on the floor vents that open.
* The front bumper is very bright and shiny, and looks like a newer chrome with some very light scratches of wear that show on the top edge(almost unnoticeable, but do show in bright light, see pics).
Glass-
* The glass appears that it might be older, but yet very clear without much age showing.
* The remainder of the glass doesn’t have any cracks, delamination, or bull-eyes, but the drivers side has a couple of light scratches and a little wear showing on the passengers side. (See pics)
* The rear glass does have a fair amount of pitting.
Interior-
* It would be our guess that the top of the dash, and above the windshield where the vacuum operated wipers are housed is probably the original interior of the truck.
* The speedometer and gauge package, as well as the radio appear to be a newer style.
* The interior has received a newer steering column and steering wheel at some point.
* The interior is done in a cloth tweed type product, with a flooring material used for the mats.
* The headliner has held up well, and is the same type of material. The stitching has all held up well, and in good shape as well as the door panels. (See pics)
* There is a brake pedal on the right side should that be more comfortable for the driver, or the left side also operates as a brake if you find that more your driving style.
Storage Areas-
* There are two outside storage units that have locking mechanisms if desired.
* The front one houses the battery, and remote control for the power wench. The rear one is just for storage.
Tires and Wheels-
* All six tires are Firestone Transforce HT
* The wheel cover finish looks new, or at least almost new.
* We do not notice any curb damage to the polished wheel covers, or notice any type of damage to tires
* Left Front- 245-85-16
* Left Rear- 245-85-16
* Right Front- 245-85-16
* Right Rear- 245-85-16
Engine and Transmission-
* The owner bought with existing engine, and has about 60 miles, and 3 yrs ago had a transmission installed. As typical the cab over design is not easy to get photos of, we did the best we could to show you the engine and transmission. (See chassis pictures also)
Chassis-
* We did not notice any rust perforation of the frame or the floor. ( See all pics)
* Some of the chassis has been lightly coated in paint at some time, we suggest you look very close at all the chassis pictures we have taken so that you will expertly understand it.
Mechanical-
*Emergency brake does work and holds the vehicle
*The vacuum operated windshield wipers move(windshield dry)
*Manual choke operates
*Both side air vents open and close
*Door latches, and rolling windows work on both sides
*Both low and high beams work
* Dash lights work
* No knowledge if C.B radio works
*Clearance lights on cab work
* Air horn works
*Electric horn works
*Right and left side illuminated marker lights work
*Lenses that are just forward of the rear axle are reflectors only
*Taillights work
*Four way flashers work in the rear as well as the front (Flashing lights are both below the head lamps, and on top of headlamps)
*Right side blinker works in the front, but not in the rear
*Left side blinker works in the front and rear
*The remote control for the winch and operation does goes with the vehicle, however the personal tie downs do not. (Owner indicated winch was operating well)
*The oil pressure gauge is working, and when the engine is fully warmed it runs around 25 lbs on idle and registers at about 50 lbs when running about 1500 rpm’s
*The temperature gauge after driving on the expressway on idle is about mid point between cold and hot, but actually a little bit on the cold side.
*The volt meter seems to be right around 13 or 14
*Gas gauge is registering and we think is working
*Radio works on A.M. and F.M.
*Cassette player does operate
*The speakers(which you will see in the pictures) are located between the seats and behind the shift
*No Heat or air, but it would typically be driven in nice weather with the windows/vents open, it’s the greatest type of ventilation you’ll have in a ride!
Test Drive-
* On driving we will note that the truck accelerates, and the engine seems to run properly upon acceleration, and upon idle. The transmission seems to up shift, and down shift properly as needed. The linkage for the transmission seems to operate correct. The steering is very easy, reacts well, and seems to have good road manners. Chad drove the truck a few miles around town and down the express way up to 60 mph, the truck drove smooth without vibrating or shaking. It tracks straight down the road, and does not pull to left or the right, and upon applying brakes it seemed to stop easily without pulsation or pulling. The gas pedal is a little sensitive, and takes a little getting use to. Again you have the option depending on how you like to drive, you can use the brake by the gas peddle or the left side of the steering column.
