Marvel at this Stunning 1979 F-150 6.9L Diesel Build
Some people spend their free time at the track, some spend it browsing the internet for the new and the interesting, and still others spend their time slouched over a bag of popcorn on the couch. However, it’s a small number of people—even simply a small number of Ford fans—who go out and spend their free time restoring classics. That’s exactly what Ford-Truck member 51fordf5 has done in his free hours. The beast pictured above is a 1979 Ford F-150 6.9L Diesel – four wheel drive, lifted, and primed for paint. A stunning restoration in progress.
Amazingly, he actually acquired the project from a fellow member of this site in a straight up trade, in which he gained this beauty and gave up his 1978 F-250 SuperCab. Worth it? One might definitely say so. Running and driving like a dream, very little is left to do in order to finish this truck – primarily some bodywork and a paint job. This Ford is definitely loud, proud, and well-built – ready for action.
