Default 1979 Ford monster truck

Hello, I am new to this forum. I am looking for help in trying to locate a 1979 Ford monster truck that is up in the Kaleva Mi. area. It was on a large straight rail frame with air bags and 5 ton axles with a black body with gold trim. It was originally from the Lake Orion area but supposed was purchased by someone up in Kaleva who owned a tree lot. I haven't had much luck on this year long search in trying to locate it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize for the crummy picture. Thanks.

As of two years ago that truck used to sit...go south off the Coopersville exit approx 2 miles on the west side. Wanted to stop many times but never took the time.

Here is another picture of the truck I am looking for back in the early 80's when it was being built. Thanks for the info IDIeselman. I sent you a PM. Thanks.

It might look scary but it wasn't. With the airbags and everything it rode and handled like a Caddy. I am trying to locate it for a friend of mine.

Kickstand, that blurry picture is actually from Google street view. But can you please post the picture you took of it? Yes that is when it was in Fenton back in 2008. This thing was hardly a hunk of shit. It was built like a "beast" would be a better definition of it.

I saw it in Fenton as well. That thing scared the shit out of me to even stand next to. It had beefy parts for sure, but the whole suspension "design" was downright terrifying. You drove that on public roads?

When I get home maybe I'll see if I can dig up the pics I took.
