Ford F-Series NASTI 1
About my car
I bought this truck as my first work truck in 1992 for my business. Worked it, plowed with it and wheeled with it. Did a crazy motor in 97 blew it in 99. It was off the road till 2012. Restoration began in 02.
Stripped to frame and restored/ rebuild every single part. Complete restoration from frame up. 4 inch suspension lift with 10 stainless Bilstein shocks, all new springs, blocks, brackets, etc...
It took a few years to find a great condition cab and bed. The bed came off a truck in the 80's and cab/ doors came from a guy who never ended up restoring his truck and had it since the early 90's. The hood, nose, frame and drivetrain is all original. Cab, doors, bed & tailgate were in mint condition. This truck was prepped, edged and finish painted black on the inside of all parts and primed ready for finish on outside prior to assembly.
