NOW ON ROLLERS, new price $2800 Read & Check the Pics!!

1979 F150 Lots of new parts and work done, very solid truck.

400M/NP435/NP205/D44/9" Also comes with 14bff welded with disks, 4 15x10 8 lug white spokes (for when you toss that 60 underneath), along with other stuff listed below.

Open front diff, new forged joints in axleshafts, caps welded to the shafts
Mini-spool in rear 9", however the crosspin is busted.
Box, doors, front fenders from a southern truck. Cab is solid except for cab corners and driver floor. Rockers very solid.
Dual electric fans.

Truck is located 20 minutes outside of Houghton, where it has been garaged since I moved to Phoenix over a year ago. There is a lot of stuff in the bed that I had bought/acquired before moving that will go with it. I'm sure I won't remember it all.

Stuff that will come with the truck:
•14bff rear axle that has 4.11s, welded, with disk brakes that I was going to put in.
•8 Lug 15x10 whitespokes in like-new condition.
•Bench seat out of mid 90s ford.
•New floorpan and cabmount for drivers side. (Pass side already installed).
-Other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting.

New in the past 3 years (Truck has been garaged for the past 15 months), and the truck wasn't my DD, so very low miles since.

Brand New Power Steering Box, Pump, Hoses, cooler.
Gas tank, pickup.
Brake booster, master cylinder, Brakes.
New bearings, seals, and mini spool in 9"
Very strong rebuilt 400M with very low miles on it.
Modine Radiator
Clutch, pressure plate, flywheel, throw-out bushing
Plugs, wires, cap, rotor
Doug Thorley Headers
Edelbrock Intake
Edelbrock 4bbl Carb (the only Edelbrock I've ran that doesn't suck)

6" Suspension lift (Coils and drop brackets in front, shackle flip and add-a-leaf in rear)
New rear leaf packs
Drop pitman arm
Moog tie rod ends
New drag link
Steering stabilizers
Poly Track bar bushings
It's been wheeled, does pretty well, that was what I built it for.
Solid driver as well. Reliable.

I've done a lot of work and probably forgot a lot too. Good solid reliable truck, I've put radials on it and driven downstate from Houghton and back, etc.

$3500 - Reduced to $2800

In some of the pics the stacks are really tall, this was before I shortened them. Only about 6" above the cab now. Actually sounds very very nice with the stacks, and not too awful loud in the cab. Never once pulled over for noise.

I wish I had better pics, some of the interior and under hood, but this is all I have on my computer and the truck is up there.

I am headed to Houghton, on the 16th for a Wedding on the 17th.
I have a Diesel Crew Cab, and a 5th wheel Flat Bed.
I can haul this truck back to the Grand Rapids area on the 18th for fuel, bridge toll and a little extra if interested.
