Reader Casey H has been having some health issues and just can’t work on this short bed F-100 anymore. Rather than see it go to waste in his Albuquerque, New Mexico driveway, he’s decided to list it here on Barn Finds, so that one of you guys can snag it! It’s going to need a lot of work, but looks like a great project to undertake. He’s got some spares that go with it, including the parts needed to do a disc brake conversion! He’s asking $2,500 for it, but told me he’s willing to hear offers, so be sure to email him here and make an offer.
Like I said earlier, it has some issues, but he’s upfront about the problems. I’ll let him tell you more about his truck. From Casey – This is a fairly clean 1970 Ford F-100 short wide bed project truck minus the motor. The Truck originally had a 240 Six and a 4 speed.
The transmission goes with truck. It’s mileage is not sure, estimated to be 122,989.2 as previous odometer reading was 22,989.2.
This truck does have the typical small rust holes this year Ford normally get, floor board seam and bottom of front fenders. The bed is in excellent condition and appears the truck was only used as a grocery-getter as there are zero dents or dings in the bed inside.
The body is complete and comes with all parts, front clip is currently off and disassembled. Truck comes with a set of 1979 F-100 Front Beams Complete for Disc Brake Bolt In Conversion, all parts present. This truck has a clear title.
Besides needing to be put back together your going to have to find a motor for this rig, but there are a lot of options for it. You could find another inline six or you could upgrade it with a V8! Just about any engine will fit in it. I would probably go with something like a 302, but only after doing the disc brake conversion and upgrading the suspension. What engine would you put in it?
I want to thank Casey for giving us the chance to find a new home for his truck! If you have a barn find, project car parked in your garage or any other classics that you’d like to have featured here on Barn Finds, please give us a shot!
