The exterior displays a very attractive and straight body restored in Forest green. The chromework has been redone and shows very well front to back. The stance is courtesy of 15-inch color-keyed steel wheels & FORD caps fitted with 15-inch Cooper Cobra radial tires front to back (235/70R15s) along with rack & pinion steering & updated power front disc brakes. The wood bed & stainless strips are beautiful. The tailgate and bed itself is in excellent shape as well as the cab.
The interior retains the beautiful factory gauge cluster along with a Forest green dash. The seating has been updated along with the steering column (tilt). An aftermarket Ford script AM/FM digital stereo has been installed. The upholstery shows well. Close inspection of the paint and body will reveal an exceptional paint job with some minor imperfections and chip touch-ups. The running boards are steel and the glass panes are in good condition.
Under the hood is the later GM 350 cubic inch V8 along with accessories such as power steering and air conditioning. This is a mild performance engine fitted with an Edelbrock aluminum intake & 4bbl. carburetor. The cooling system has been updated as well with an electric fan. You can see much of the work that went into this truck underneath it. Rack and Pinion steering is equipped along with updated shocks, front disc brakes, and a custom fitted fuel tank. The spare tire/wheel is also fitted underneath the bed. The transmission is the stout TH400 automatic. The dual exhaust system sounds excellent. The running boards are steel and the cab appears exceptionally solid throughout.
