The first time I saw this PU was about 3 years ago. Did not realize it belonged to one of my customers. He had owned it for 10 years. The best part of this is the fact that he is one of the fussiest persons I know. What that means to you is you're getting one very nice PU. Little things like the heater cables work soothe and free. In his words:
This pickup has 54,000 orig. miles originally from Colorado. It is a very fun driver. Here is what I have done to it: All New leaf springs, all new brakes with shoes arced to match the drums, new front drums, new parking brake cables, rebuilt radiator and heater core, new Mcleod clutch assembly, master cylinder and hydraulic throw-out bearing, rebuilt T-10 close ratio 4 speed w/H.D. gears, new drive line, new flaming river steering column, new CCP power steering conversion, new Odyssey battery, new Edelbrock 1404 4 barrel carb., PCV valve conversion, New through fender headers w/ elect. cut-outs, New exhaust system w/ Magnaflows, New tires.
Get the idea of how much he did? When I first drove it, I thought it had the old compound low gear and no synchro transmission I forgot he had a Mustang 4 speed transmission rebuilt. This really makes it nice to drive. 272 Ford V-8 engine. There are some blemishes in the paint which happens over time. The wild thing about this PU is the exhaust headers going out through the inner fenders. That is what made me remember this PU when I saw it at a show 3 years ago. You will be impressed on how clean it is. And it is a short-bed. 1957 Ford F-1 Short-bed Pickup . Cond. # 2.
