My wife found this pick up at a garage sale when I was at a softball tournament with my daughter in Kansas City. Being a Ford fan it was a no brainer for me. I’ve since had all the chrome polished, installed the oak bed, rebuilt the 351M motor with side winder headers and flow master exhaust. It also has a Edelbrock high rise and 4 barrel carburetor, Flaming River tilt steering wheel and a B&M 3 speed automatic on the floor.
