NOT genuine Ford: CB Radio; tachometer; electric (or not) trailer brake controller; 8 track player; fire extinguisher; amp meter; dual exhausts; compass.

Locking hubs, oil bath air cleaner were options, amp and oil pressure gauges were an option.

Yes, I'll be taking off the Non-Ford stuff like the compass, eight track, trailer brakes and such.
The dual exhaust comes off of the stock manifolds so I may leave that.
Will be going back to tall skinny tires(235/85/16) and looking for the stock 75 hubcaps.
All in all I was/am more concerned with rust/rot and played out mechanicals rather than taking off a few non-stock items.
Thanks

Sounds like you dodged a bullet. At least you can rest a little easier but you won't be 100% sure until it arrives.
Let us know how it turns out.
Good luck.

Interesting that, in their "sold" section, they list a 1979 F250 "factory high boy".
Thats the one.

And personally I can't believe this guy who started this post. He is going after a small garage/business after he purchased a 45 year old truck sight unseen and then was granted a full refund after he complained about it? Good luck finding another company that would do that.

Someone needed to stand up for the small business selling honest classic vehicles and tell this guy to stop whining. What a horror story, "I bought a classic truck, whined about it, and got a full refund" Unbelievable.

If anyone needs to contact me regarding my purchases from All Metal, feel free. I feel the need to stand up for them after 2 great buying experiences.

Yeah i believe a guy that just joined FTE in June and has 3 posts. You are probably the donk Jonny Hetmer himself. I have pictures that show its nothing like the pictures in the ad. Good luck with your trucks.

hey Bill ( NumberDummy ) when I posted about my cousin I see what you mean I do realize that 67-77 f250 4x4s are highboys, my cousin thought that all 4x4s between 73-76 were highboys.

Here are the pictures of what was delivered to my house.
This is what Johnny Hetmer the owner of All Metal Classics calls a rust free vehicle. What a joke.

Chips in hood


Hood



Passenger cab corner


Holes in doors





I have a hundred pictures to show this owner of All Metal Classic, Johnny Hetmer in a lier and a cheat. This truck in not what was described and is not the same condition as the pictures posted on his website or on ebay.
I just can't believe anyone that says this guy is honest and I don't really care if you believe me. You might have had a good experience with him but I havent and Im not alone if you read the BBB site in Idaho.
My point here was to remind everyone not to make the same mistake i made in trusting someone miles away. There were a few red flags that I ignored because I let my excitement about a new very cool looking truck get the best of me and cloud my judgement. I expected more from a dealer.
I did get my money back for the purchase price but I'm still out a lot of money due to his lies and half truths.

If anyone wants more picture please let me know. These just scratch the surface as far as condition.

You should file a complaint with the law. This almost appears to be interstate fraud to me. Because it isn't rust free and what is the picture of the crap weld job? The front bumper?

(a) Use of interstate commerce for purpose of fraud or deceit It shall be unlawful for any person in the offer or sale of any securities (including security-based swaps) or any security-based swap agreement (as defined in section 78c (a)(78) [1] of this title) by the use of any means or instruments of transportation or communication in interstate commerce or by use of the mails, directly or indirectly—
(1) to employ any device, scheme, or artifice to defraud, or
(2) to obtain money or property by means of any untrue statement of a material fact or any omission to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; or
(3) to engage in any transaction, practice, or course of business which operates or would operate as a fraud or deceit upon the purchaser.

Following.
Seen a few ads from this dealer, but could tell from the photos that the paint job on one of his "restored" F150's was poor quality.

Who? What agency? I don't think attorney general of Illinois or Idaho is the place. Soooo Where?
