I have been helping a good friend of mine put this truck together for about 3 years,we got it running last spring and he drove it around some during the summer(2012)but never finished it.He got tired of it and sold it to me last November.I have been trying to finish it up since then.I have been trying to get an interior put in it but have not found anyone around me who has time to do it ,so I am going to try and sell it unfinished.
My friend that started the build bought everything new except the cab,rear end,and wheels.The frame is new from DCR Hot Rods in Denton N.C.and has been powder coated a charcoal color,all of the suspension parts are new from Speedway.It has a new 604 Chevy crate engine with aluminum heads and roller cam,air gap intake and Edlebrock carb.(very powerful)It has a new 700R4 trans with 2200 stall converter. It has a new balanced drive shaft,all new power brakes,and unirack steering.(no play in steering) It has a new chrome tilt steering column,all new gauges,and a new wiring harness.The lights are all new and the headlights have the signals built inside them. New aluminum radiator and electric thermostat controlled fan.It has a new A model style bed with oak floor and stainless strips. A new stainless gas tank,and new billet fuel door inside bed. It has new bias ply tires from Coker (16inch) and new hub caps and trim rings.It has a 3.73 limited slip ford rear end.(works good with overdrive and tall rear tires).It has new glass,new aluminum windshield frame,and new power windows.
The cab was sand blasted and had new floor and patch panels where needed .The paint is nice with the exception of a few rock chips that I have tried to touch up. The truck has been driven less than 500 miles,it runs drives and stops good,and the ride is not bad for bias ply tires.
To be finished it will need interior, speedo cable,(needs the adapter that plugs in transmission also),emergency brake handle and front cable(it has cables running from rear wheels).The wheels that are it now have adapters,the regular patern is ford car.So if you want to change wheels and tires you have plenty of options.
I would like this picked up in person so you can see what you are getting. If you do not like it when you come to pick it up you do not have to take it.There has been a lot of money spent on this and someone will get a good deal. You may call Darrell with any questions at 276-608-4193,276-608-5543or276-628-6540 home.
Ford is recalling about 70,209 examples of the 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and the 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid because the cooling pumps for their hybrid systems could fail.
According to the company's defect notice, it's possible for the original "Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump" to wear out and fail, which would could cause the hybrid system to overheat. If this happens, the vehicle goes into a safety mode that takes away most or all of its power. However, braking and steering still operate normally. After cooling down, the affected models restart normally. The company says that it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.
Ford will begin repairing the vehicles in late October, and dealers will be installing improved, brushless pumps on the affected models at no charge to owners. If drivers had their pumps fail before this recall, they can contact Ford for a possible reimbursement.

The last time we saw Tanner Foust at the Nürburgring he was sloshing an SVT Raptor from kerb to kerb. Sticking with Ford but swapping keys, this time the drift champion and Top Gear USA host goes to the opposite end of the manufacturer's tuner garage and plucks a Fiesta ST for 'Ring duty.
The 179-horsepower front-wheel-driver acquits itself well by the end of the video. But be warned, Foust doesn't set a 'Ring time and it's shot like a commercial... because that's what it is. Still, you can enjoy all two minutes and 31 seconds of it below.
Forgive us for having the distinct feeling of déjà vu, but it certainly feels like we've been here before. By that we are referring Car and Driver and the announcement of its annual 10Best vehicles for 2013. To be sure, it's an impressive selection of cars that combine heart-pounding performance and frugal sensibilities, but it also represents something of a broken record on the part of C/D. We're not so sure that's a flaw, though, as the resulting list is tough to argue with.
Vehicles like the Ford Mustang, Porsche Boxster, and BMW 3 Series have maintained their high-horsepower spots on this list for several years now. Even on the more practical and nimble end, the Honda Accord, Honda Fit and Mazda Miata have not budged. These continued spots are even in light of redesigns for some vehicles such as the Accord, Boxster and 3 Series.
In fact, the only newcomer to the 10Best list this year are the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins, which knocked out the Cadillac CTS-V. We think it would have been a huge misstep to have excluded the FR-S/BRZ, even in light of the supercharged Caddy's lamentable departure from 10Best.
