I'm making payments on this truck, it runs and drives and has a good clear title. I bought it for the cab only, for my project truck, and would like someone else to take the rest and help me pay it off. It has been taken care of well. It had a 17' flat bed on it. I wanna keep the cab, doors, hood, running boards and possibly radiator. Interior is going to be updated so thats for sale as well (seats, front one is plain, but in good shape, dash, door panels, steering column, headliner is kinda rough). I have thought about keeping the motor/ tranny for a future project, so if someone would want just the rolling frame, that would be an option as well. Let me know and thanks for looking.

Mando Jake, I saw you posted on another forum (Ford-Trucks.com) asking if the final gear in that 542 manual trany was any better then you current 4spd. I am not sure what model your 4spd trany is but if its the standard NP 435 that is in most older ford trucks then the answer is no. They have the same final gear ratio of 1.0. Here is a website that I found the info on, it has a whole list of different manual trany's and their gear ratios.

Hope this helps!
