Five Badass Blue Oval Finds from the FTE Marketplace
We found five awesome items to make this the summer that you finally start that build!
The Ford Truck Enthusiasts Marketplace is great for finding inspiration for your next project, or replacement parts for your daily driver, and odds and ends to make your truck a haven for all things Blue Oval. Here are five cool things we found in the marketplace that you should add to your shopping list.
1. 1996 Ford F-350 4WD 5-Speed w/ Rosewood Injectors
Need a truck that can do it all? Then have a look at this 1996 Ford F-350, which has a rebuilt Powerstroke 7.3-liter diesel with Rosewood Stage 1 Injectors. It’s been garaged, is “adult owned and driven,” and has a gooseneck for some major towing
2. 1974 Ford F-250 Camper Special Ranger XLT
What if you’re in the market for a clean classic pickup, though? This lovely brown 1974 Ford F-250 Camper Special Ranger XLT could be yours. The current owner says it was originally ordered by his wife’s grandfather, has a brand-new C6 transmission, and a mildly rebuilt 390.
3. 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4WD ZF6 Chassis Crew Cab
Need a truck for your business? This 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty chassis crew cab has a small flat bed in the back for a few crate motors to ride upon. Speaking of, the owner says the short block will need sleeving or replacement, and is looking for someone to take up where they left off.
4. 1972 Ford Thunderbird
“Not a truck!” True, but it is a Ford, and you can bring your F-250 and trailer to haul this rare bird home. How rare? This 1972 Ford Thunderbird is one of 2,006 “S” code cars made in early 1972, which came with the 400 CID V8 paired with a C6 transmission. The 400 is partially rebuilt, and the owner says everything is “all there and saveable.”
5. Ford 292 Y-Block
Speaking of engines, need one for your project truck? Then how about this Ford 292 Y-Block from a 1964 F-100? The owner swapped out this motor for a 351 Windsor and says he’ll throw in all of the other parts connected to it, including the three-speed transmission.
