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.

Is there a cooler car from the 1980s and early 90s to mod than a Fox-body Ford Mustang? No, there isn't. If you disagree with us, we suggest you have a look at this 1990 Mustang Coupe, which just might change your mind. Although considering just how extensively modified this car - the Top Notch Mustang from Creations n' Chrome - is, we wonder just how much Ford is left in this old pony.

It rides on a custom race tube chassis that weighs a scant 700 pounds, while carbon-fiber bits and bobs help lower the overall curb weight to a mere 2,400 pounds. When paired with supercharged, 5.0-liter, Aluminator V8 from Ford Racing, the results are, doubtlessly, exciting. 855 horsepower at the rear wheels and 667 pound-feet of torque are available from that force-fed V8 should be just plenty for this car's intended purpose of running in standing-mile competitions.
The Top Notch Mustang is more extreme than just weight savings and a big engine, though. That 5.0-liter is essentially in what's known as a front-mid layout - where the engine is actually behind the front axle. In this case, the 5.0-liter V8 is 17 inches further back than a factory Fox-body, for better weight distribution. As a result, the cabin has been completely overhauled. An SLA front suspension, wheels from HRE, Wilwood brakes and Sparco interior items round out the extensive list of mods.
When we first saw the 2015 Ford Mustang, much was made of its new, more expressive color palette, which includes the return of both yellow and orange in addition to a new grayish shade, Guard. At that time, we didn't have anything to look at but a few small scale models painted in the new colors - the only Mustangs on display were in Race Red.

For its auto show debut here at in the Motor City, Ford has trotted out a couple of as-yet-unseen shades, including the striking Triple Yellow shown above. The new shade marks a return to a paint color that enthusiasts have been clamoring for, and we must say, it looks excellent under the lights of Cobo Hall.
Stat wise, there are still a number of questions we have about the redesigned Mustang. None of the three engines have had official power figures published. The same goes for pricing information, although if any loose-lipped execs let something slip in Detroit, we'll be sure to let you know. Until then, have a look at the new Triple Yellow Mustang on display at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
Ohio is a hot area for Ford at the moment with the announcement just a few weeks ago that production of the next-generation F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks would move from Mexico to the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, Ohio. Now, Ford is investing $500 million to hire 300 workers at its Lima Engine Plant in Lima, Ohio, to add production of the twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 for the 2015 F-150.
The latest investment will be used to add a new flexible engine assembly system and renovate 700,000 square feet of the plant for machining and assembly areas. The Lima factory already builds Ford's 3.5-liter and 3.7-liter Duratec V6 engines. The plant opened in 1957, and it's on track to build its 40 millionth engine later this year.
Ford claims that the 2.7-liter EcoBoost will offer V8 performance with better efficiency in the F-150. It comes standard with intelligent stop/start that doesn't activate when the truck is towing or in four-wheel drive, and it's made from a combination of compacted graphite iron and aluminum for low weight and high strength. The company says that V6 engines have already proven popular in the F-150 with 57 percent of trucks in 2014 being equipped with either the naturally aspirated 3.7-liter or turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines.
