Rarely ever left the farm, and the Dana 70's rear axle ratio will be (at least) 4.83-1.

Take that puppy out on the highway, don't expect to exceed 50 mph!

And take it easy, a truck used around the farm prolly hasn't been driven over 20 MPH very much.

The engine, trans & rear end: sludge city!

That is a nice looking find indeed! I wish my barn pickup looked half that good when I started my project.

That interior looks perfect. You can tell there was only one person in it at a time.

Realistically...

It's an F350, so it rides and steers like an oxcart.

The rear axle is a Dana 70 with "at least" a 4.83-1 rear end.

The flatbed is one of the the least desirable of all the types of back of cab equipment.

The seller sez the body has 'surface rust' but what's it like everywhere else?

So what are you left with?

A nice seat, a powertrain that (mebbe) has seen little use, which can be a detriment, depending on how it was used and therefore, is in what kind of condition?

37,000 miles means nothing.

It's not the miles on the truck that counts, but the miles left in the truck that counts.

The odometer only reads to 99,999.9, then returns to zero after 1/10th of a mile. So it might be 137,000 miles, or?

Used car dealers get a bad rap, and while most deserve it, there are laws pertaining to brakes and steering that all dealers must observe.

Private sellers don't have to observe anything, and can lie just as bad or worse than any used car dealer.

excellent points Bill... as to the 4K seat...thats a heck of a good one too...granted its not a desirable truck to the degree as say a unibody or 4X4...but IF it is indeed as stated and so on...it would be a cool parade piece if its as clean as it appears in the pic...but Ive been fooled on that one too...recently too unfortunately...

Why did Ford cancel the Unibody?

It had nothing to do with poor sales, it sold well for the time frame.

It had everything to do with lawsuits.

Because the bed is integral with the cab, when the frame flexed caused by shifting loads, the doors popped open!

Ppl literally fell out of the cab!

Most trucks didn't have seat belts, because they were optional!

How desirable did you say the Uni was again?
