BRIEF DESCRIPTION: this Ford hauler I believe was built by a fabricator or UHaul out of Phoenix, AZ back in 1974. The original seller told me the outfit or Ford dealer but I dont recall their name. It was built to haul trailers and it was used from the late 70s to the mid 90s as a portable pit stop / chase vehicle / tow vehicle for a race team who raced SCORE vehicles in places like Baja Mexico and races like the Mint 400.
The being said, its obviously been mechanically kept up and well maintained over the yrs. The original 390 let go about 17 yrs ago and another mildly built up one was installed. It has about 30k miles on it, but the truck was taken out of commission in the late 90s and not driven or used much since. This is a very rare and sought after classic Ford which can still be used for its original purpose or just take to the local car shows loaded up with your Race car or truck. Actual mileage on the truck itself is prob over 170k. The title shows 00000000 as it's in excess of the 99,999 mechanical limit of the speedometer. In the back is a 6000lb winch which still works great with a long cable remote. The truck was set up yrs ago with an on board generator and welder among some of the big equipment. It even had dual battery and charging system at one time. All the side doors still lock and work with a key. The ramp system to drive up is all there and works well. Has hook ups for air and tow hooks out back and electrical too. On the Driver side sleeper part, a new aluminum wall was installed with a nice window. The original 2 doors that went on there come with the truck and it can be converted back easily enough if you wanted to. YES, the area behind the cab is a SLEEPER area !!
DONT BID UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUNDS IN HAND, apparently some people who use ebay arent smart enough to understand the rules. So if you have under 10 feedback, I'll be emailing you if you bid to make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid.

These cars are getting harder to find esp in this condition that are still affordable to most buyers.
DRIVETRAIN: factory V8 big block truck with a granny gear 4 spd. Starts and runs great. At normal idle it sounds great, with the basic bolt on performance mods and a mild cam. Not much as been detailed under the hood in a few yrs. Transmission and clutch feel fine, out back is a DANA rearend of course. Some of the AC parts are still under the hood too. It originally had underdash AC.
The motor does not have more then 30k miles on it, it was gone thru before being installed about 8 yrs ago...and then parked alot./// retired of sorts.
Truck has two fuel tanks, the original behind the seat, and the other below the cab. It is only running off one right now, the selector is not hooked up.
Truck has no power steering, however I am including parts to install that if you wish.
EXTERIOR: the body pretty straight for its age, but this is a 80% rust FREE AZ desert survivor. Windows roll up and down, doors work fine too. Rust or rot I should say is still pretty minimal around the truck Much nicer by comparison to a truck this old from the eastcoast. The tool box areas and sleeper got some rust and rot, but the beauty about these they are flat pieces of steel and very easy to replace. Maybe even update with Aluminum and drop some weight while adding a cool look. The paint is old and not in very good shape. Its had some touch up or redo in spots and in person you can see its not very good at all. Don't forget the awesome 6000 lb winch up top.
SUSPENSION: the suspension looks normal from what I can see .. but old. We didnt hear any weird noises or clunks while driving it around. It Im sure will need some work soon like bushings etc in the future, As mentioned before the race team who had it, always kept up the repairs on this truck. But as is its driving around ok.
Minimal rust under the car, making taking this car apart, almost a breeze !!
There you have it, probably The BEST represented FORD on Ebay. Shows you all the good as well as any bad, hope you appreciate them. We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars and it shows. People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks on end. Having as much as the original steel on a restored car these days speaks volumes.
Also, if you buy a car thats been "restored", who knows what sort of surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating. People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.
