This is a nice truck for the money. Frame-off build 6 years ago
using original parts and donor parts from a 79 Mercury Marquis
makes for a great driver.
Front and rear suspensions are from the Merc., sub-framed into the truck frame. Power steering and front disc brakes. Rear drum brakes. Lowered front suspension with all new parts this past winter. Air bags in the rear coil springs adjust rear ride height.
Interior is comfortable with seats from a VW van, new carpet, door panels, custom console and headliner. A new fuel tank has been installed behind the cab on the frame. The steering column and entire wiring harness is from the Mercury.
