Vehicle Description 1970 Ford F-100 SWB pickup. 302 V8. Automatic transmission. Power steering. I bought this truck 2 years ago as my sons first vechicle. A truck we could rebuild together. I've done about 90% of all the work so far and now that the truck is about 80% completed he wants to sell it and buy a newer truck. I'm not happy about selling but it's his decision to make. (Probably his girlfriends decision, actually) . This truck is driven 20-50 miles daily. I have over $6000 invested in this truck so far. About the only major task left on the rebuild is a paint job. I insisted on a really quality drivetrain before the cosmetic and small stuff. Here is the description and new parts listing kind of mixed in together. It has strong 302 out of a 1971 Torino. Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold. New Edelbrock 600 cfm 4-barrel carburetor. Headers. New alternator. New starter. New starter relay. New voltage regulator. Dual battery setup. New Edelbrock breather. New fuel pump. New front shocks. New radial arm bushings. New brakes front and rear. New master cylinder. Dual exhaust with crome tips. AM/FM cassette radio. New voltmeter. New oil pressure gauge. Water temp gauge. Freshly rebuilt heavy duty truck radiator. 5 white spoke truck wheels. The automatic transmission was professionally rebuilt last month by Atrom Transmissions in Memphis, TN. Chrome rails on truck bed. White Delta truckbed toolbox with keys. Sliding back glass. 225RX15 tires on front. 10X31.5X15 on rear. About half the tread left on all. New battery. New horn. There is more but that is all that I can think of at the moment. The owner before me gave it a really cheapo maroon paint job over the original Yucatan Gold. I have touched it up some but the paint job is weak. The floorboard and back bed have been repaired but someone did a pretty good job on both. This truck has almost no rust. The only rust spots on the body that I have found are two small places on the bottom rear of both front fenders. Drivers side is about the size of a quarter. Passenger side is a little larger. See pics. I have included photos of both. Oddly, while the paint job had to be the cheapest ever, there is NO BUBBLING OR RUST underneath the paint. The windshield is excellent. All the exterior lights/blinkers work except the drivers side rear marker light which needs a lense. See pic. The paint job INSIDE the cab seems to be a lot better than the exterior or it has just held up better. It has a camo seat cover. The factory seat has normal wear and need to be recovered. It has a current Mississippi inspection that is just a month old. There a 3-4 very minor scuffs on the truck. Not really dents but parking lot incidents that are noticable up close. This is a great older truck with most of the hard, boring work done on the restoration. If you are looking for a truck to restore back to factory original, this is not the truck for you. We were going for a older look with some modern upgrades. We haven't made much effort to polish the truck for listing. You will notice from the pics that the truck could use a good washing. It is a good solid truck and a great truck to drive and use just as it is. However, I hope someone gets it that will finish out the restoration more. I apologize about the questionable picture quality. I need a higher resolution camera. Any questions, just ask. You are welcome to come look the truck over in person. It is located in North Mississippi just about 5 miles south of Memphis, TN. Payment expected within 7 days. Of course, all sales are final and truck is sold as is. Cash (in person), money orders or cashiers checks. Delivery is possible within reasonable distance. Pickup and payment in person is preferred. Truck is being offered for sale locally and I reserve the right to close the auction if it sells before anyone bids. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION....Someone inquired on whether the would be reliable to drive to Biloxi, MS if won the auction. I WOULD HAVE NO RESERVATIONS ABOUT DRIVING THIS TRUCK TO BILOXI OR ANY SIMILAR DISTANCE. I have built this truck up so far with reliability in mind. My son drives it daily to work, on dates and out of town.
