The beneficiary of a frame off restoration this truck was 100 percent redone according to the consigner. An 8E-13 model rated at 1 ton. A massive front grille painted in white frames the front and sports 3 large "teeth" with a single headlight on either side. A wide chrome bumper below which is near perfect protects this front, as does the vented hood flanked by the rounded front fenders with the turn signal lights atop. A single pane of glass windshield and cab lighting above along with straight doors with well minded gaps and a large chrome mirror hanging on either side, is a nice contrast to the red exterior, and believe me when I say red, as it is DEEP RED! On the rear flatbed which is total oak board varnished to perfection within a strong black painted metal frame then side push through strapping that holds the vertical wood "beams" with their wider horizontal wood slats which sections can be removed at random. Next to the cab is a custom-built toolbox framed in oak, and it has an aluminum panel to protect against cargo hitting it in front of the bed. A large frame is behind this and frames the rear glass on the cab. Diamond plate shined to the nines is the back roll-on that houses the taillights and marker lighting. A tow package is on, and the rear wheels are for dual tires, the fronts are large steel wheels with central bolts, just like the big rigs.

As noted everything was redone and with a swing of the doors you are greeted with a beige molded vinyl panel which has the pull, window crank, and door actuator levers within this beige panel. Surrounding it is straight red steel. Floating on black rubber floors is a wide full-length bench in beige vinyl with no marks or tears. The dash has the instrument cluster to drivers left and also shows a column mounted tachometer with an original large black steering wheel on top of this column. In the center is the "climatizer controls" and on the passenger side a black painted glovebox which floats in a field of the red steel dash front. Shifting is courtesy a long floor shifter, and all is really nice inside.

Just stunningly restored with a pristine black block in the form of a 289ci V8 topped with a single 2-barrel carburetor. Yellow valve covers add to the look and contrast nicely with the shiny red painted engine bay. Noted also are all supple shiny hoses, corrosion free bolt ons and all new wiring. On the back of the 289 is a 5-speed manual transmission complete with overdrive. This pushes power rearward to the duelies that are held together by a Dana 60 rear.

Too big for our lift, however a peek underneath and we see straight rust free steel nicely coated in black, a stainless steel exhaust muffler system, clean wood framing for the bed, and leaf springs on front and back suspension to carry the load for the front and rear. Big drum brakes are on all 4 corners.
