He is going to keep everything original. The motor has a mild cam but other than that, the carb, and larger tires, everything will be the same. I suggested putting the ford aluminum wheels on it instead of the chrome.

Easy. See the yellow icon above that looks like a mountain on a postcard? Click it and you'll have several options. If your pics are on your computer then drag and drop the into the pop-up screen. But if your pics are hosted somewhere then insert the URL of each one, one at a time, into the URL line and click Insert.

If your sd card can plug into the phone, yes, as you will have the option on a mobile device to "browse your device".

We had a decent thread awhile back about these promotional trucks. It seems a dealer or group of dealers in a area would get together and order trucks from Ford, either with certain options or just ordinary trucks, get a graphics company to make some stickers and pin striping for it, and get that installed on a bunch of them and promoted them with a special name. There is not much real documentation on them though, and there were a bunch of different ones it seems in the 80's, all different depending on your area of the country.

It would be a good subject for someone to research and make a book out of it.

I doubt they did anything that would void Ford's original warranty. I bring that up since someone mentioned a lift may have been installed on some of them and I doubt that would fly with Ford and the warranty.

The 85 I have was a dealer add on truck. Nothing cool like that boss hoss. Mine was just chrome "wagon" spoke rims, tube grille and bed rails.
