Description for Ford F-150 1979

1979 Super Cab with just about new everything.
Low mileage intercooled 12 valve 5.9 Cummins (1st Gen)with a new turbo. 4" Turbo back straight pipe.
New Luk Gold Series single disk clutch. The pilot bearing that came with it wasn't great so that was just replaced.
Rebuilt NV4500 with new input shaft and 1st, 2nd, and 3 gear all replaced. The rest of the gears were freshened up with new carbonfiber syncros.
Transfer case rebuild.
Original giant 460 radiator that was professionally modified to work with the input and output of the 12 valve.
New Warn hubs up front, brand new rough country lift kit installed.
Linex truck bed.
Rear bench is from an early 90's Ford, original seats included.
Bright headlights.
Body has zero Bondo. One rust spot on cab that's pictured.
Frame has light surface rust. No cancer.
New floor and dash carpet.
New Ultra Motorsports wheels and 35x12.5 r17 Toyo MT tires.
Axles are rebuilt and geared at 3.5 or 3.7. Perfectly geared with this motor, feels like a race truck and cruises at 80mph around 2k RPM. I recently drove it to Port Angeles from Spokane and averaged 19mpg driving near 80mph.
It's my wife's truck and she's decided she wants the creature comforts of a modern truck.
This truck is a pro list. The only things worth considering are as follows:
If we kept it, we planned to add a 10.25" rear axle and 1 ton suspension. (currently a 9" rear axle. Front is a Dana 44).
Heater was uninstalled to install the new carpet. We have the original heater ready to install, if you aren't interested in finding a vintage AC system like we were. Turbo would have to be relocated for installation of factory heater. Plenty of room to make this happen.
The firewall or clutch pedal assembly needs to be reinforced, the firewall flexes slightly when you disengage the clutch.
Dash has some damage where I was told a previous owner had glued a cb radio.
