Hopefully Mark will come along and tell us more about this truck. It's cool.
I noticed the front diff is on the passenger side in this one. Stu, isn't yours on the other side?
As far as sale value, since it is the last one built that is still living, wouldn't it be better to have a generator and oil bath filter on it? Is that an original carb? For something like this I don't know if that would impact value on it or not. It's so far beyond my price range that it doesn't really matter. It would be very cool to own, although I would say once completed it needs to be in a museum. I would sure want to drive it though.

Hey, any pictures of the interior?

Joe - you've looked at the pictures closer than I have I guess. Sure, it should have generator, oil bath, and maybe other things. Not sure why he'd have done mods unless he's been driving it and figured to include original pieces with the sale.

His front diff is on the passenger side because the transfer case on half tons sends its driveshaft forward on that side. Half tons (Model LD7-4) and early F-2/3s (R3-4) have single speed transfer cases. Later trucks like my project truck have a two speed transfer case that is shared with the big trucks. Mine is Model R32-4, or more correctly 6R32-4 because it's the 215 engine. The driveshaft on these goes forward on the drivers side. Stu

I just love it. IF I could ever somehow afford it I would paint it (body off and stripped) what ever color it left the factory with. Prolly keep the 12 Volt alt though.
Than It would be my Alaska grocery getter year round. If I could afford to buy it
than I could afford to drive it everyday and keep it in pristine condition
in my fully equipped and staffed restoration shop for all the old classics I would own. But this one would get driven for sure.
Why have one that ya don't drive? Makes no sense to me. I have never had any want for a trailer queen.

Well when you put it that way......very well said. If I could afford a $130000 vehicle I could afford to drive it. Now I need to run out and get a lottery ticket, but my daily driver won't start....stupid newer vehicles.

Iʻd drive it too, I like the stance and body design.

Ya most everything newer than an 85. Computerized EFI just sucks to work
on and keep running when yer head was born in a carburetor.

Think long and hard about that.


My Mom was carberated.

I don't know if that's the reason, but I could sure understand it. Mark is like the rest of us with more than one project that he's facing. Stu
