Description for Ford Other 1989

This is a rare 1989 Ford C8000 Commercial 4x4 Truck. It is in great condition and only needs a coat of paint. CAT 3208 Diesel engine with only 56, 000 miles on it. It was sitting in an equipment lot in California when I found it. I have lots more pictures that I can share. My sons and I started working on it as a project truck but they are off to college and I need to make room in my shop for other toys. The truck has 16,000 lbs Marmon Herrington Axles and drive train, automatic Allison transmission. This is a factory commercial truck. There have been no changes to the drive train, motor or suspension. It has air brakes and air lockers for the transfer case and front axle. It is all original except for the military wheels and tires I put on. I also purchased and installed a brand new (still in the crate) 14 foot steel flat bed. Prior to the bed installation I had a fab shop create rails and flexible bed brackets with titanium springs to allow the bed to flex when going over uneven terrain ($3k). I had a custom battery box made and updated the fuel tank. It has almost new Michelin 14.00 R20 XZL which retail for about $1000 each and 2 piece military rims similar to the ones on a 5 ton truck.
You can get almost anything you need for this truck at your local NAPA store or Cat Dealer.
Everywhere I go, people stop me and want to see and talk about this truck. It draws lots of attention. I have even been asked to bring it to car shows because it is so rare and unusual.
This will make a great fun truck or show truck. It will easily haul anything you want!
For serious buyers I can answer additional questions.
I recently reduced the price by $2000. I'd like to get it out of my shop before winter.
