Description for Ford Other Pickups 1961

THIS AUCTION IS FOR A 1961 FORD ECONOLINE 5 WINDOW PICKUP.

I SAW THIS INSOMEONES YARD ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO AND WAS JUST ABLE TO BUY IT LAST YEAR. THIS WAS IN THE BAKERSFIELD, CA. AREA THAT ISCLOSE TO THE FAMOSO RACE TRACK. USED ATFAMOSO RACE TRACK IN THE 70?S, AND LATER RETIRED TO THE LAKE ISABELLAAREA. FOUND ITS WAY BACK TO BAKERSFIELDAROUND 2005. THE ?REAL? PATINA PAINT ISAWESOME. FAMOSO SPEED SHOP ON DOORS, SEEPICS THE ENGINE MOUNTS WERE SET UP FOR A CHEVY ENGINE WHEN I BOUGHT THETRUCK. IT HAS A ?PONTIAC? REAR END.

I HAD A CHEVY 305 WITH HEADERS AVAILIABLE AND STUCK ITIN. 350 TRANSMISSION WITH A NEWSHORTENED DRIVESHAFT. THE TRUCK RUNSGOOD, HAVE AN ELECTRIC FAN ON THE ALUMINUM RADIATOR AND DID FINE INTRAFFIC.

BODY ? ITS EXACTLY THE WAY I GOT IT. THE QUARTER GLASS WAS WITH THE TRUCK BUT IBOUGHT A NEW WINDSHIELD AND A USED BACK GLASS.DRIVERS WINDOW IS CRACKED BUT WORKS.TAILGATE HAS RUST AT THE BOTTOM BUT I WOULDN?T FIX IT. COUPLE OF DENTS AND DINGS AND SCRATCHES HEREAND THERE. THAT?S WHAT MAKES ITCOOL.

ENGINE ? 305 CHEVYWITH HEADERS, ENGINE IS NOTHING SPECIAL, JUST STOCK. ITS ALL YOU REALLY NEED CAUSE THIS THING ISPRETTY FREAKY TO DRIVE. BIG WINDSHIELDMAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR GOING TO GO THROUGH IT, BUT I THINK THE NEW SEALS WILL KEEP YOU IN,

TRANSMISSION ? LEAKS A LITTLE AROUND THE SHIFTER ROD. HAD A TRANS SHOP ?FIX? THE LEAK, BUT OFCOURSEIT STILL LEAKS. SHIFTER LINKAGE WASMADE USING A CHUTE CABLE CAUSE THE TRUCK WAS ORIGINALLY A STICK. DRIVESHAFT MADE BY PERFORMANCE DRIVELINE.

INTERIOR ? SEAT COVER REDONE AND RUBBER FLOOR MAT ADDED,BESIDE THAT, EVERYTHING IS THE WAY IT WAS INCLUDING THE CHEVY DOG HOUSE. LIGHTS WORK, 8 TRACK PLAYER DOES NOT.

TIRES - HAS SKINNIESON THE FRONT AND HOOSIER RACE TIRES ON THE BACK. VERY COOL CRUISER.

I TOOK THIS TO THE FAMOSO STREET ROD REUNION IN 2019 AND PUTIT IN THE CAR SHOW. VERY POPULARTRUCK. I ENDED UP TALKING TO SO MANYPEOPLE ABOUT IT. SOME SAID THEY REMEMBERIT AT THE TRACK IN THE 70?S. SOME OF THEOLD RACERS SAID THERE WAS A FEW OF THEM AROUND.

HAVE A CLEAN TITLE AND THE CALIFORNIA BLACK PLATE ?FMOSO?I INCLUDED A COUPLE PICTURES OF IT WHEN SEARCHING THE INTERNET FOR IT. RUNS, DRIVES, AND STOPS!
