I have been working on this truck for the last 2 1/2 years and I just can't find time to finish it up. The hard and expensive part is done. It starts, runs, and drives. The body and paint is done. I spent $2400 having a leather seat build for it, and I have another whole matching leather hide to finish the interior.
The front suspension has upper and lower control arms and rack and pinion steering. I have the Carfax for the donor mustang GT showing it only has 50,000 miles on the engine and transmission. The 9 inch Ford rear end is freshly overall as well.
Everything on this truck is new and would take me forever to list them all. I encourage any prospective buyer to come look at it in person. I do have some of the parts to finish it, including power Windows, wiring harness which is partially installed, and the hardware to finish the bed. You will need a heat and air conditioning under dash unit purchased and installed, the condenser and compressor are already mounted. So the wiring, powers windows heat in the air need to be finished. To be clear, this is a running driving all Ford 4.6 L computerize fuel injection engine, with a 4R70W automatic transmission from a Mustang GT.

The yellow-and-maroon paint scheme may not be to everyone’s liking, but the seller of the Pick of the Day, a 1956 Ford F-100, notes that the pickup is a “very original” fat-fender example
My oldest son, Rob, and I purchased an old farm truck that had almost as much rust as it did clean metal.
Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
