1978 Ford F150, Dana 60s, lift, nice!!!! plow, more!

Please excuse my sharpness in this ad, it was written for Craigslist idiots;

Marlborough CT, $3000 don't PM me and ask me where I am or the price; READ THE AD! Only shipping it if paid in full and you set up the shipping.

NO BS, I'm gonna tell the bad and the good. Great truck, runs, drives(neighborhood, don't know about highway or trips, don't ask), brakes work great and even the parking brake works.

Don't waste my time with lowball offers, these are very hard to find for this price. Don't make offers except in person and only if you can back it up by going through with it immediately, this truck will not last.

I have a really nice 1978 F150 with a 79 F350 Front Dana 60 swapped in, had shackle reversal done. Was told it's 4.10 gears, haven't checked, they usually are. It Has newer 8" pressure treated flatbed made from 2x8 and 4x4, nicely done.

Frame has NO RUST!!!

Cab only needs a little floor patch on each side and 1 cab corner, I have a new LMC drivers side pan and a cab corner.

Rockers are amazing!!! NO ROT, very solid!!! Doors are not rotted and close nicely; all parts work, even have exterior lock keys, lol. Fenders are also rot free, someone treated this truck well. Grill is complete, not broken. Gas tank is good, rear bumper is still there and in good shape.

Engine is 351 and C6 auto trans, shifts fine, runs awesome!!! Has Edelbrock 4 barrel intake and carb, headers, full dual exhaust, was told it is cammed and it sounds like it and pulls like it. Engine DOES leak oil, at least from valve covers. Runs rough, needs a real carb person to tune it or needs a new carb(honestly), I haven't dug into it so I don't know but it starts right up. PO said it needed a fuel pump, I have a brand new one with the truck but haven't put it in.

You are not driving this home, bring a trailer and $3K, have BOS, recent registration in CT, no title. When it was last registered they kept the title, it's over 20 years old so NO TITLE.

I have a nice 95 bench seat for it, also have shackle reversal parts for the rear and lift shackles, truck can easily fir larger tires(like 40") with the lift parts. Front spring mounts are bolted together, I would definitely weld them or increase them to add lift. I also have some 6" rear lift springs from a 99 F250 that can be fit to the rear and some good front Superduty springs that should add 3-4" of lift too. I have a new drop pitman arm for you as well.

Comes with a working plow frame/lights wiring all hooked up and 8' plow, electric/hydraulic, check pictures.

$2600; Updated, found that the front spring hangers need to be welded, only bolted on, so price drop.
