- I started this roughly 1.5 - 2 yrs ago, when I was having it repainted. But it is NOT a show truck paint job! my object was to give it some shine because of it's rarity and the fact that the old Colonial white was getting thin and dull. the truck is over 25 yrs old, so yes, it has some dings here and there. it is a lifetime Alabama truck, so it is solid. I am the 3rd owner having owned it since Jan. of 2001. The 2nd owner is local to me. I am selling because my priorities have changed and I have a larger truck now. This truck has given me no problems whatsoever or mechanical issues of any kind, ever. It had 41k on it when I got it, and it roughly still has in the neighborhood of 260k. I do not drive it regular anymore, or matter-a-fact, very rarely at all. Here is what I have done to it just this year.......
-installed a new windshield
-put in a new heater core
-found and installed a NOS red steering wheel
-installed new water pump along with new belts/hoses
-installed new clutch/P.P./T.O. brg/pilot brg
-had new 'Tuff' spray in bedliner installed
-4 new Capitol Sport 245/45/R17 VC608 tires with Nitrogen
-new Coverlay dash cover
-new grille
-installed new Motorcraft plugs/wires/dist cap/rotor
-new park/side marker lights
-new tail lights
-new cargo lamp
-installed new outer tie rod ends
prolly more I just cant think of at the moment. These are rare trucks
and becoming more rare everyday. most are junked, wrecked, or stripped.
this one is complete and nothing 'major' has been changed that cannot be reversed or was not an improvement over the original. the front brakes have
been upgraded to the '95/up slightly larger rotors
with dual piston calipers. truck rides on KYB shocks all around. Wheels are AFS replica 17x9s, in special order white. both front
and rear sway bars have poly bushings in them, along with the radius arms. the original fog lamps have been replaced
with brighter driving lights. The new paint is Ford color Z1 Performance White.
wont find many, if any GTs this nice in this shape, ready to drive. Asking $4,995. Truck is also for sale at a local
used car lot, so don't delay. Any questions you may have, feel free to call or text me anytime. 256-223-9809
be aware, I may not be able to reply immediately between the hours of 8am till 6pm. thanks
