I'm selling 1968 Ford F100 Custom Cab longbed converted to shortbed. Frame was sectioned and boxed professionally. Driveshaft was shortened and balanced professionally also. Then a shortbed box was installed from 1967 F100. The truck has new custom machined American Racing Torq Thrust wheels size 17x8 with 255/50-17 tires all around. The truck has tilt steering column, power steering, power disc brakes and front suspension from a 1977 F-100. Steering wheel is a leather Nardi 14 inch. The gauge cluster is from a F600 truck from the same era. All gauges work except speedometer but the Gps is what I use to gauge speed. Has a double din Kenwood stereo with Gps, Navigation, and IPod controls. Dynamat installed throughout cab. Has aftermarket cruise control and power windows. AC Unit is from Classic Air products. The engine is 360FE Big Block stroked to 410ci. There is a RV style camshaft for excellent torque and great idle qualities aswell as a slightly lumpy muscle idle. Has Long tube exhaust Headers with Magnaflow Mufflers and resonators for a quiet sound. Engine has an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold with a Holley street avenger Carb. The transmission is NV4500 5 speed from a 2001 Dodge Ram with an Advance Adapter kit mated to the original bellhousing. This transmission was chosen to handle the torque from the big block engine and for the added economy of the 5th gear. Truck drives well and can be driven daily. Have some receipts for the work on the truck. I'm asking a fraction of what was spent to get it to this point. Still needs a few more things especially paint and bodywork. Has some rust spots on lower corners of fenders and both door lower corners. Has surface rust on bed area. Has small dent on front of hood. Windshield has a crack about 6 inches on passenger side. The windshield doesnt really bother the view since its on the very right. I will throw in an extra door and some misc parts. Unfortunately I have to sell truck to fund my other project. My loss your gain like the saying says!! Tags are up to date just transfer and drive!
Valve covers leak a little so I'm including gaskets and sealant.
Please email for more pics.
I can assist with transport but at buyer's expense. Email for questions.
Vehicle will be sold with no warranty.
NO RESERVE!! Listed locally so I reserve the right to end auction at anytime
I will update pics as I am personally still working on the cosmetics of the truck.
There are more parts arriving this week for the truck and will be included.

New York City may have selected its taxi of tomorrow, but there are still plenty of municipalities across the US with citizens that depend on yellow livery cars to get them across town in a jiffy. That's why Ford is going ahead with this, the new Transit Connect Taxi.
Sat, 13 Apr 2013 11:00:00 EST
Based on the 2014 Transit Connect, the TC Taxi boasts a number of features designed to make the compact van appeal to discerning taxi drivers and their fares, with the most notable upgrade being a standardized prep package to convert the 2.5-liter four to run on liquefied petroleum or compressed natural gas. The clean-burning fuel options will allow operators to save on fuel costs and cut down on pollution without sacrificing performance.
A lower load floor and a new twist-beam rear suspension are meant to improve the riding experience for passengers, while the longer 2014 Transit Connect sports extra cargo space as well. In addition to the CNG/LPG conversion, the Transit Connect Taxi can also be easily modified for wheelchair access. Drivers, meanwhile, will have access to optional goodies like Sync with MyFord Touch and a rear-view camera.
This week Ford rolled out the 2014 Transit Courier, the fourth addition to its Transit range. Ford says its the first time for the nameplate in the compact van segment.

"Ford has now completely transformed its commercial vehicle line-up, with four all-new, class-leading Transits for European customers," said Barb Samardzich, vice president of product development for Ford Europe. "With the all-new Transit range, we expect sales to grow to 400,000 units per year by 2016, well over 50 percent more than we sell today."
When the Courier goes on sale in the Spring of 2014, it will offer more than 1,400 pounds of payload capacity, multiple mounting points for racks or other framework and a rear cargo area that can carry items 5.3 feet-long. An optional folding passenger seat boosts the cargo length to 8.5 feet.
The Gas Guzzler schedule, with mpg ratings and charges that haven't changed since 1991, lays out which fuel-swillers owe what to Uncle Sam.
I started thinking about the "Gas Guzzler Tax" - considerably less well known as The Energy Tax Act of 1978 - when I was driving Dodge's new Challenger SRT Hellcat last week. Unsurprisingly for a car that can burn 1.5 gallons of gas per minute at max tilt, theoretically able to empty a full tank of premium in about 13 minutes, the Hellcat will be subject to the Gas Guzzler Tax schedule when it goes on sale.
