As the truck sits, I'd like to get $3500. Willing to take half or so in trade for some boat parts that I need, which I listed in the second post. It comes with all of the major stuff needed to finish, essentially, less paint and wheels/tires. It comes with the dumb 20" wheels that it currently resides on, but not really the right style for the truck. I just put them on there to make it roll. I will keep working on it as I go, so in a few weeks, my price may go up.
Sorry for the short initial post. I get frustrated trying to post on my phone. I will take some pictures of the narrowed Ford 9" and four link. The frame has been shortened and got a weld in "C-notch". This truck sits very low. Will lay the running boards on the ground. If you want it to sit a bit higher, the Beltech drop spindles could be swapped for stock spindles. The frame was cleaned up and painted. The bottom of the cab was taken down to bare metal(no holes in the floor like you usually find), epoxy primed and sprayed with "Raptor Liner". The cab was mounted 2.25" off of the frame and is mounted on Polyurethane mounts. I have enough poly bushings for the cab, rad support and bed. I have the fuel tank also. The two doors on the truck were sand blasted and shot in epoxy primer. If I still have the truck in three weeks, it'll be media blasted and epoxy primed. Will shoot paint shortly there after. For the right price, I will sell/trade with a freshly built 454/TH400. Still needs a fair amount of work to finish, but not too much! All of the fabrication is done!
Attached are some pictures:
What I'd like to do is trade toward some performance BBC parts and some parts to finish my boat, a '79 Cheetah.
