I've been talking about this truck a bunch in the forum recently and as much as I love it, I must consider selling her because I also recently purchased a 45' wooden boat and simply cannot justify keeping my F-600 so if there is anyone looking for a truly unique and rare heavy Ford 4x4 I hope you will look closely at mine. My price is not firm but I believe realistic so will come down some but not alot. I am not pressed for money and am much more interested that the rig go to someone with the same passion for such a truck as myself.

I bought this truck with big plans to make it into a go anywhere back country machine with a conversion to a 7.3l Navistar IDI diesel and to complete the interior of the box as a mobile mountain cabin. I have never seen another of these trucks in my life and F600 4x4 chassis are extremely rare and could be adapted to a hundred different uses. One thing which always impressed me is that this brute is built to military specs but in a commercial package which makes in truly special.
I can think of a dozen uses for that big old gal up here. It is the cats meow for this country and terrain. I have an International Army bus that is 8.5 feet wide inside that runs excellent. As I have not done anything with it I prolly wouldn't do anything
with the F600 either. But if your interested in a trade? PM me. I could do a lot more
up here with a 4X4 for sure. Mine has the big Corn Binder Diesel and 6 speed Allison.
Drives great and is an 87.
