My purchase background: I have owned the truck for a year. I bought it as a small project to do a light build on and just enjoy. I have been doing that for the year. The PO was in Chicago and did not drive it in the winter. Since I have owned it it has been living in my shop. It is a super truck. It’s very clean and everything works.
Reason for selling: I have lost interest in this project. I own a construction company and I have trucks everywhere. I don’t get to drive this truck very much. I don’t have time to do much with it. I have another 1992 thats fully built that I like to travel in. In addition I have my personal vehicles and I just purchased a 2000 LC for my son. I’m overwhelmed with vehicles so I have decided to sell this one.
264*** miles on the clock
3FE Engine with compression about 140 in all cylinders
Converted to 4speed H42 Transmission
I put a working H42 in the truck after my purchase (the old tranny had no 4th gear).
It has a new aluminum radiator.
It has a new master cylinder.
It has nearly new BFG Tires.
It has a working part time kit installed.
IT HAS ZERO RUST. This truck was a western truck until two or so years ago. It was driven one time in the snow during my ownership between a trailer and the shop. The PO did not drive it in the winter. The part time kit allowed me to enjoy a couple of donuts in the snow.
A few cool (good) things about the truck:
The original exhaust cooling fan that would run after you shut the engine off still works it I believe intermittently. The auto door locking system still works. The windows are pretty strong up and down. The interior is almost impeccable. It is in excellent condition. The manual tranny behind a 3fe is absolutely a blast to drive. It is the most modern engine in the F series line up that lasted for over 45 years. It is just a complete blast to drive. The part time kit is cool. It is a looker. It’s a very clean example of the truck. It has its faults (as mentioned below) but over all is the nicest looking and working cruiser I have come across in a while. The air works and does pretty good. It has a nice Blue Sea volt gauge and USB charging port. There are no dashboard cracks. Extra goodies include some cans of R12. I have many 3fe parts in my shop that you are welcome to pick through.
A few not so cool things about the truck:
It has been repainted. The original color was white and it was repainted white. It has some clear coat peeling on the drivers side rear panel. The truck was wrecked on the front end. No major damage or frame damage took place. The bumper has been replaced with a JDM style front bumper. It does have a salvage title. One of the owners before the PO removed the flares and did a lousy job of filling the holes. I’m a not much of a body man but I had planned to sand them down and fill them properly and possibly rhino line the sides to cover those areas up or have the truck re-painted. I never got far enough to make a decision. There is no corrosion near any of the holes that I can see The sunroof leaks. But it does work so I’m sure the drains just need to be reamed out. I didn’t worry about it much because in the 300 miles Ive driven this year it was just to go take a spin on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The speakers are pretty well shot but original. It has a rear seal leak. It’s minimal. I don’t have any concerns about it. It doesn’t use any oil so I leave it alone. It needs a set of shocks. I can put them on if needed as part of the sale. If someone buys this with intent to build it the shocks wont matter. The front turn signal valence is off of a 1993+ land cruiser so it does leave a bit of a gap between it and the grill. It’s not a terrible thing but
This truck is truly a blast to drive. If I owned a lake house this truck would be perfect for it. Puttering around a vacation area in the mountains or on the coast would be perfect for it. It’s a very special truck. It has a great mojo to it. I smile every time i drive it. I just have to many “things” right now. I’d rather someone else take it and enjoy it.
Shipping will be on the buyers end of the deal. I will make sure the truck is loaded up on a truck of a shipper contracted by the buyer. I can deliver within a reasonable distance of Indianapolis for additional cost. $750 deposit by PayPal will be required within 3 days of the auction completion and the remaining amount can be paid by PayPal or Cashiers check. I do have the title in hand.
