Keep in mind this truck is 72 years old, it is in great shape and restoration is not complete.This is a survivor before Ford shut down production to turn over their factory for the war effort. The only produced these for a few months. Vehicle is sold as is. The engine runs strong and I believe it is the original Flathead V8, it was changed over to 12 volt. The following has been done mechanically:
I have replaced the complete fuel system, new gas tank, sending unit, fuel lines, fuel pump, spark plugs & wires and carburetor. The wiring has all been replaced except the front end light harnesses's. Re-cored radiator, upper & lower
radiator hoses replaced, radiator pipes replaced with stainless steel, new thermostats, new batteries(2 6 volt batteries included) new starter and and original starter. New motor mounts. All hoses and belts have been replaced. New water
pump. Instrument cluster was completely rebuilt & re calibrated like new. New head light switch and harness, starter button. Original heater, no leaks Floor panels patched(see pictures) Needs wiper motor, New hinge pins & bolts. 4 almost new white wide wall tires with little wear, other than me test driving.
I have over $5200. in receipts for parts and items that have been repaired or replaced. I have NOS muffler, stainless grill "jail bars", chrome plated hood latch assembly, chrome left mirror, new running boards, new tail gate, headliner and interior kit with panels. Dimmer switch.
These repairs seems to have been done by the previous owner: Brake lines and brakes, exterior work , wood floor for bed with stainless strips(see picture) rear bed corners by tailgate. Some rear spring leaf's have been removed to lower. I have these also. It appears to have the original blue paint and then the dark green as seen in the picture. The body does need some work but I feel it wouldn't take much to get it ready. I have additional pictures that I can send. If interested please email me.

There is no doubt that Ford has had its hands full fielding complaints with its MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch systems these days, but looking to keep its customers happy, Ford is once again upgrading its infotainment systems and extending the warranties. Despite having just sent out updates for its systems back in March, Automotive News says that customers are still complaining about the speed and ease of use.
Vehicles with MyFord Touch will now get a five-year, unlimited-mile warranty, while the MyLincoln Touch will have a six-year, unlimited-mile warranty. Previously, the systems were covered under basic warranties (three-year, 36,000-mile for Ford and four-year, 60,000-miles for Lincoln).
What is being referred to as "version 3.5" for the MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch systems will be mailed out (or downloaded) next month for owners of cars without navigation and in January for cars with nav. Owners of hybrids, plug-ins and electric vehicles will get the update sometime in the first quarter of next year.
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.
Just in time for the holidays: Ford took the 2015 Mustang to Route 66 to cook up rolling footage, and we've been given some of the leftovers ahead of the meal. There are no burnouts, no donuts, no revving, and thankfully, no music. It's just two minutes and 26 seconds of the new pony car running free in the desert.
So in case you needed more visualizing help, the video below will help you start imagining how you'll look in your 2014 Christmas present to yourself...
