You are bidding on a 1956 ford C800 Big Job and a 1990 F5 frame with 460 EFI w/Auto trans. The F5 frame has only 38,000 miles. I was going to build a car hauler but I have to many projects and I don't see myself getting to this in the next two years so it has to go.  I bought this truck out of a barn in the state of Oregon. The truck started it's life at lumber yard delivering wood. After 15 years of service one of the employees bought the truck and took it home. He worked on it and fixed it up. For the next 35 years he used it to haul fire wood for his house.  The owner fell sick and the truck was parked for 7 years in a large Carport. I purchased the truck a year ago and had it shipped to Michigan. I did nothing to it.  Body is very solid. Many of the places that the cabs rot are solid in this cab. The Drip rail is soild and the dog house is solid. The running boards and fenders are solid as is most of the cab. There is rust one area of rust on the passenger side floor board. I have included pictures.  


 After I found the the Truck I looked for a donor frame and  found a 1990 motor home with Air assisted springs and only 38000 miles on it. It has Frame has a air conditioning and cruise control. Disk Breaks on the front and drum breaks in the rear.  It is an F5 frame which as far as I can tell means it is F-550 suspension but you might want to double check that. The F5 frame runs the Truck does not. The previous owner told me it ran when he parked it but since I was only going use the cab I never spent any time trying to get it running. You will get the original oregon title for the truck and a bill of sale for the Frame.  Good luck bidding on it. I am going to miss her when she is gone.

Chrysler called out over lackluster Ram Runner by racer who helped develop it

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:52:00 EST

Fans of off-roading and desert blasting might recall that Chrysler offers an aftermarket conversion that can turn a Ram 1500 into a road-legal desert racer, called the Ram Runner. The kit, sold through Mopar, includes some significant suspension upgrades, body tweaks and a brawnier cat-back exhaust for the truck's 5.7-liter V8.
Considering all of this, comparisons with the almighty Ford F-150 SVT Raptor are common. Among the off-road community, that makes these two a sort of Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang for people that prefer driving on dirt. In the Race-Dezert forum, the discussion as to which truck was better was proceeding as normal - Ram fans said their piece and Ford fans said theirs. Then, a man named Kent Kroeker offered up his two cents.
See, Kroeker is a Baja racer, and the man that helped develop the Ram Runner. Despite his association with the truck, though, he had some less than kind words for Chrysler and the Ram Runner.

2015 Ford F-150 named Truck of Texas, Lincoln and Jeep also awarded at Truck Rodeo

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:28:00 EST

The Ford Motor Company has a lot of reasons to celebrate after winning eight categories in this year's Texas Auto Writers Association's annual Truck Rodeo. Most important among them, the Blue Oval's latest 2015 Ford F-150 earned the prestigious Truck of Texas award, ending the Ram 1500's two-year winning streak. The 2015 Lincoln MKC also grabbed the honor as the CUV of Texas, and Ford was named Truck Line of Texas.
FoMoCo even took trophies for best technology with its extensive use of aluminum on its latest F-Series and best commercial vehicle for the new Transit 250. It wasn't a total sweep, though, because the Jeep Grand Cherokee grabbed the title of the SUV of Texas for the fifth straight time.
This year's event put 60 auto writers in 75 pickups, SUVs and crossovers and challenged them to find the best in a plethora of categories. All of the winners are listed below, and scroll down to read the full announcements from the Texas Auto Writers Association and Ford.

Chip Ganassi Racing switches to the Ford EcoBoost-powered Riley Daytona Prototype

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 14:22:00 EST

Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) announced yesterday at Ford's SEMA press conference that it will field a Ford-Riley Daytona Prototype with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in the 2014 United SportsCar Championship (USCC). CGRFS is the second team to commit to the new Ford-Riley car, behind Michael Shank Racing (which has already used the racecar to break a 26-year-old top-speed record at Daytona International Speedway).
"Over the last 10 seasons we have been able to experience a great deal of success in Grand-Am," Chip Ganassi says, "and now with the dawn of the new United SportsCar Championship we feel that Ford power will be a key ingredient to writing the next chapter of our sports car program."
In the last Grand-Am season, CGRFS raced a BMW-Riley Daytona Prototype. The team has won seven Daytona Prototype championships, all in the past ten years. Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas return as the team's prototype co-drivers, and will attend their maiden race in the Ford-Riley at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January.
