I've posted this project3 timesalready. I've had over 500 watchers on the first run. If it doesn't sell, 'm not going to post again. I'll take it to the Pomona Swap in January and try my luck there. If it doesn't sell then, 'm going to build it as a runner and the price goes up!

This is a frame off beginning project. The body was completely acid dipped. 100% rust free. The chemical dip reveals where body repair is needed. Chemical dip was best thing I ever did. You can see the original lead work. I repaired the front floor sheet metal. M2 kit installed with manual rack. C-notched in the rear. Lays frame. New sheet metal made by Brady Fabrication in Fullerton in the rear. Motor is a 1985 262 V6 4.3L (needs rebuild). The first of that engine and only year carbureted. If you do the exhaust right, hey sound just like early straight 6's, nly more reliable and more horsepower. Sanderson Headers block huggers. Engine is paired up with a 1987 700R4 (needs rebuild). Custom 2 piece drive line made by Inland Drive Line. 8" ford rearend. 2 linked with a transverse panhard in the rear. Custom made bag mounts. There's a lot of custom work done to this frame: custom made removable transmission crossmember, ustom ports for brake lines, uel lines and air lines so that they can installed inward the frame. Also had to make custom body mounts since I ditched the original trans crossmember/body mounts. Custom designed motor mounts cut out of a water jet machine. Steering wheel and shaft with the U-joint double D steering made and working. 6.40-15 BFG's on 51' Victoria 15x6 steelies sand blasted and metalized. By the way, x4-1/2 bolt pattern all around. I've got the doors, enders, nner fenders, ood, eck lid, nd most misc. parts. Missing belt line stainless, rille, umpers, ront seat, ind shield and door handles. I have a title, ut not registered. Again, his is project that needs to be finished. There's still some more welding that needs to be finished. However, ost of the hard work is done.
I have over $8K in parts and hours into this.
Asking $6000.
