Description: Truck was built in the Dallas Ford assembly plant, delivered to Hilliard Ford in Ft. Worth. It was purchased new by a man in Azle, Texas for transportation to Alaska where he worked on the Alaska pipeline. After a few years he sold it to my uncle, also of Azle, who used it till he died. I then bought it, transported it to my shop in Ohio for restoration. It's finally done! Upon inspection, the only rust found was on the floor to the bed which shows slight pitting. There was absolutely no rust on the body panels, bed panel or the bumpers. I would call it a totally rust free Texas truck.

All mechanical work, interior and exterior painting and upholstery was completed in our shop. Goal was to maintain the originality using as many original or factory replacement parts as possible and produce a reliable restored vehicle.

The off frame restoration included:

Transmission: Disassembled, resealed, cleaned and reassembled with new gaskets, seals, filter and adjusted to spec
Engine: VIN number indicates engine is 360 CI. Upon disassembly we found a 390 crankshaft. Compression checked very good both cold and hot
Freeze plugs removed, water jackets cleaned and flushed, new brass freeze plugs installed
Removed and inspected oil pan - found rod bearings slightly worn
Crank shaft turned and polished - installed new rod and main bearings
Installed new oil pan, flushed oiling system and reassembled
Overhauled carburetor and distributor, replaced radiator, heater core, belts, hoses, gaskets, etc.
Casting numbers found on block are D4TE (If there is an engine serial number, I could not locate it.)
Ford reference book indicates the D4TE number is a Ford truck 390 engine
The heads have casting # D2TEAA. (If you are a Ford person you may know more about these numbers than I do.
Replaced Bendix steering gear box with a Ford box and installed new power steering pump. As a result of replacing the Bendix gear box with a Ford box, the steering wheel was moved rearward about 2-1/2inches. Replacement steering wheel has a shallow dish.
Replaced tie rod ends, all front end bushings, front and rear brakes, wheel cylinders and master cylinder
Upon removal of cab and bed, both were thoroughly cleaned and sealed with chassis saver.
Sand blasted frame and sealed with chassis saver.
Cab and bed were sanded and primed with epoxy primer, painted with acrylic enamel and 3 coats of clear coat was applied.
Rubber seals were replaced around windshield, rear glass and both doors.
Padded dash was replaced.
Susan's Auto Trim reupholstered the seat, door panels, headliner, sun visors and installed new carpet.
