Description for Ford F-350 1969

This is a very nice original un-modified 69 F350. Ford V8 360 motor with 4-speed NP-435 transmission. Dana 70 3.73 ratio rear axle. Total GVW 10,000 lbs.
The truck was purchased new by a seed company and used as their company/farm vehicle. It was said that the old man that owned it never let the truck sit out or even get rained on (whether that's true or not the truck has been cared for). The man died and the truck remained sitting in a barn for decades. The previous owner bought the truck from the man's grandson and turned it into his daily driver. This spring the truck threw the drive shaft out on the interstate and damaged the transmission mainshaft before I bought it this summer.
The truck has new rubber, new radiator, new fuel pump and the engine runs good.

When I first saw this truck I thought it was an old restoration. After looking at it closely I discovered that it had not been restored or even touched. The exterior has the original paint and the interior looks darn near new.
In order to drive the truck it needs the transmission repaired (or even better replaced with an overdrive transmission) and a new driveline built. It has a few little dings and scratches and paint is a little faded (after all it's 50 years old). The only rust to be found is on the lower left fender (last photo) even the radiator support is not rusted out. I can provide additional photos if desired.
I what to restore this truck so bad it's not even funny. But I'm getting dirty looks for bringing another project home and realistically I don't have the time to restore this truck anyway. When you look at the typical problem areas on these old trucks this one is in good condition. This is one of the rare items that look better the more you look at it. If you are like me and put a premium in not having to go over some one elses "repairs" then this truck is definitely for you.
If you don't have the money please don't bid on it. I'll require a $500 PayPal deposit within 24 hours and the balance cash or cashier's check within 7 days. Cashier's check must clear the bank before truck will be released. You will receive a clear Indiana title and bill of sale. I'll help with loading/transportation as needed just ask.

Indiana sales tax laws applied.

I will not ship any items totaling over $200 or freight shipments unless you supply a daytime phone number.
I will not be responsible for delivery problems if you supply a bogus number (like 111-111-1111) and the carrier cannot get hold of you.

If you have any questions please ask dplain@earthlink net.

Be sure to checkout other auctions that I maybe running. You never know what I might be selling.

Make sure you carefully read the terms of sale below! Especially the refunds section.

TERMS OF SALE

I CAN'T READ YOUR MIND - If you are bidding on additional auction(s) please pay when invoiced for the first batch and let me know that you are interested in the other auction(s). I will gladly hold the items and adjust the shipping on the next auction(s) to reflect a combined shipping cost but you need to let me know first.

NO GAMES - Unless someone here runs over the item with a forklift or something I will not end an auction early. Even if I'll lose money I won't end an auction for an outside sale so don't ask. It really makes me mad to be bidding on an auction and the seller makes a "deal" to cancel the auction and sell it out from under the bidders. I put it on eBay to sell on eBay. If you are interested in the item bid on it.

DOMESTIC BIDDERS ONLY - That means I will NOT ship outside the US so don't bother asking me.

TAXES - Indiana sales tax is due on all in-state sales unless tax exemption is on file. That means even if you live out-of-state and you take possession of an item within Indiana state borders tax is due. If the item is shipped via common carrier out of state then no tax is due. I've seen a sales tax audit and I don't want any part of that. Ebay checkout does not always handle sales tax correctly I will invoice you a correct amount if that is the case. You will always receive a receipt.

SHIPPING - Unless local pickup or specified amount is indicated in the description buyer only pays cheapest ACTUAL shipping/insurance. All items will be shipped with some form of tracking number that will be forwarded to buyer when item(s) are shipped. I will not ship any items over $200 or freight shipments unless you supply a daytime phone number. Occasionally material fee will be specified in the auction description for skidding or crating of large items. Shipping for multiple auction items will be combined whenever possible/practical. I generally use FedEx (they handle packages better than UPS). Shipments to unconfirmed PayPal addresses will be made at my discretion. Local pickup is always available and is free. Without prior arrangement, any item left over 60 days will be considered abandoned and disposed of at my discretion with no compensation given to the buyer.

EBAY MESSAGES and EMAIL - Ebay's messaging system does not always send messages or sends them late to my email for some reason. If your not getting a response from me try my email directly (shown in auction description and on your receipt). If you do not receive a reply from me I'm not ignoring you it's because I don't know there is a message. Keep in mind that I am not at my computer 24/7. You may not receive a reply in 10 minutes like some people expect. Work hours and timezone differences can delay my response as well so please keep your time expectations realistic.

PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURITY - Your personal information (address, phone number, email,...) will not be given, sold or traded to anyone other than the carrier to insure that your item(s) arrives undamaged and in a timely manner. The information will only be used to complete your auction transactions and resolve any issues that might arise.

FEEDBACK - While I appreciate positive feedback I won't hold yours hostage. You will receive feedback whether or not it is given first. I post feedback periodically (usually weekly) so yours may not show up immediately.

REFUNDS - I make every effort to make my descriptions accurate. You have 7 days after you receive the item to let me know if there is a problem NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are too busy to checkout an item within 7 days you are too busy to bid on this auction. If I was at fault you will receive a full refund including shipping - provided the item is returned to me in the same packaging and in the same condition which it was sent. Refunds for transactions which I was not at fault (i.e. item is not what you needed or what you thought it was) will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
