Ford Truck Finds: Five Cool Things We Found in the FTE Marketplace
Looking for a special part or a classic ride? Our marketplace might have just what you’re looking for.
Okay, we might be biased, but we think the Ford-Trucks Marketplace is a great place for finding all manner of truck items. Looking through the marketplace, we found our readers have posted a lot of cool things. From a new project, to replacement parts, to odds and ends that make your truck (or your home) a haven for all things Blue Oval. Here’s five posts we found in the marketplace that we might just add to our shopping list.
1996 Ford F-150
If you’re looking for a 1990s F-150 prior to its shift to a more car-like design, this 1996 Ford F-150 can do no wrong. The owner says the truck used to belong to Pacific Power in Washington state, and has done everything to make it a reliable “drive and tow anywhere rig.” A nice looking truck at a really good price. Definitely give this back boy a look.
1978 Ford 300 CID Emission Decals
If you are restoring a ’78 with the 300 CID V8, why not tie it all together with a set of these 1978 Ford 300 CID Emission Decals on the valve covers? The seller says they should work for any non-emissions HD 300. If authenticity is what your project needs, then you should check these out.
1974 F-250 2WD Rolling Chassis
Speaking of projects, here’s the foundation you might need to get your build off the ground. This 1974 F-250 2WD Rolling Chassis is complete and solid as a rock, from the Twin I-Beam front suspension to the fuel tank and wiring. All it needs is some TLC…well, and and a cab and bed.
1953 Ford F-100
Got some time on your hands? Here’s a project with your name on it. This 1953 Ford F-100 is currently in pieces, though the current owner says the chassis is 100 percent complete with new parts. The best part is that the truck is rust-free, and just needs some scrubbing down to remove years of dirt and dust. This could be one hot build.
Ford F-Series Cab Circa 1972
Need a cab to tie your fifth-generation project all together? This Ford F-Series Cab Circa 1972 works for a 1968-1972 F-Series truck could be the missing piece. The cab appears to be in relatively good shape, with only some surface rust to sand away before priming.
