Car description

This is a custom built F600 ford truck. The frame was shortened professionally. It has a fleetside box with larger tubbed inner fenders to accomodate the dually tires. Stepside fenders were then added to cover the outside of the tires. It's a really unique truck and nice fabrication work done. It runs/drives and has a clear title. Below are all the details. The fleetside dually trucks are popular now with rod builders. Many are lowered on more modern chassis. Many people use diesels in their builds. I think this truck would be cool if you just finished it and made it look like an original ford built truck. They do look cool lowered though, or build it into a 4x4. Thanks and happy bidding. I have more pics I can send. Message me if you want to do something early on it.
This truck has the original 4-barrel 292 Y-block V8. The motor runs ok and doesn't smoke, tick, or knock. It needs full tuneup though and the carb should be rebuilt, fluids flushed, etc. The transmission is the original 4-speed. The transmission works great and all gears work and the clutch works as it should. Nothing abnormal. This truck also has the original 2-speed rearend and the wiring was shortened and hooked back up after the frame was shortened. This gives you 8 total gears. The frame was professionally shortened and fishplated. It is probably stronger than new. The driveline was shortened and brake lines. The brakes are not hooked up because it needs a new master cylinder. These trucks have a handbrake/parking brake that works good for moving it around and loading. The exhaust needs redone. It will need some work but does not need any major mechanical work. The lights work and everything else that I tested besides the taillights. I don't believe they were wired after the box was mounted. The truck has the big six lug 20" rims. I've read that 19.5 rims are available with this bolt pattern. You can still buy the old style 20" tires for this though. The tires on it aren't good. I have a couple other rims I can include also because two have the rim edge dented on the passenger side. The original fuel tank is gone but they are readily available new. It's the behind-the-seat style. It is running on a boat tank now in the box.

There isn't much to say about the interior but it isn't cut up or damaged. The seat looks original and needs redone. The dash area and gauges are in good shape. The headliner is in it. Doors and windows open/close as they should. Data plate is still on the glovebox door.
The body needs some work but is very solid with little rust. The rust that needs repaired is in the cab. Both front cab mounts have rust. The floorpan area directly on top of them needs repaired too. This is a common area to repair on these trucks. The rest of the floors are fine. The rear cab corners had low rust and it was cutoff. You can't see those corners unless you get under it. The don't need repaired for a low budget build, but the corners are cheap to buy and fairly easy to install depending on your experience. The box has no rust. The filler on the truck is all light depth finish filler. I have a digital paint thickness gauge that tells the thickness of paint and filler. I've been over the whole truck and there is only one spot that may be 1/8" thick. That is behind the passenger side rear wheel. The box is single wall metal so you can see and feel the backside of any spot of filler. The grille, hood, and fenders are in good shape. The passenger side fender has filler on the bottom. That is a common spot of rust on these and I would sand that off to check for anything. Overall, the body is very good for a project ford from this era. It needs finish work primarily and paint. The tailgate is nice and all hardware is included. It is not mounted and is just sitting in place in the picture. It will be secured in the box for transport. The horizontal part of the cab steps had rust. It was covered with diamond plate metal. You could leave it like that but if your doing a nice restoration you'd want to replace it with patch panels or weld the diamond plate in properly. The fleetside box was professionally tubbed to accomodate the tires. The stepside fenders were then welded to the outside of the box. It looks good now but will look factory once it's finished. The fabricator did a nice job with the shortening and box work. The welds are nice. Nothing was warped. Everything is symetrical.
