1956 Ford F350I bought this truck in Idaho from the original owner in 1992 with 40. 00 miles on it. This truck has lived every day of it's life under cover. is and always has been rust free. I drove it approximately 30. 00 miles for fun and chores before moving from Idaho to Maryland in 1999 where I stored it inside and have put less than 1500 miles on it since. In 20004 I decided to spruce it up as a project with my Dad and brought it up to the level of finish you see now. This truck came originally with a 223 in-line six cylinder. four speed tranny and a 5. 14:1 rear. My object was to make it a pretty truck with a little snort under the hood and comfortable at cruising speeds that the the 5. 14 rear really didn't allow. Well we never quite finished it but it is a great driver.
All the following work was done in 2004-05 and the truck has been driven approximately 500 miles since.
I replaced the motor. transmission and rear end with the whole drive train out of a 1979 F350. 400ci small block fully rebuilt (I believe bored . 030 over) with RV camFour speed manual w/granny. Has PTO for future dump body. New clutch. radiator. heater coreEntire 1979 9" rear with 4. 11 gears and 16" 8 lug wheels.  Original front end w/ 17. 5" 6 lug wheels ( I still have the original 17. 5's for the back painted red)
New dual exhaust systemNew dash / gauges (have original)New fuel tank (behind seat)New hood hinges (hood needs some alignment). badges. nbsp;rear-view and side-view mirrors. visors. carpet kit (uninstalled). running board trim. dome light. Very high quality paint work (no clear coat). Only body work was a dent in passenger fender and a small ding in the hood. There are now a couple chips (see photos) and a scratch in the drivers fender from my Dad's belt that CAN be buffed out. The interior dash and floorboards are all original. unmolested w/ original paint. Only the inside of the doors was painted. Frame was also painted.
Original FOMOCO windshield. back glass. butterfly vents and passenger window. Drivers window was cracked and I cracked the new one installing it. Original wiring. Original battery box and hold downs under passenger floor in great shape
I started to insulate the cab prior to headliner and have enough i think to finish. Needs a new flatbed built and I was planning to remove or detemper a few leaf springs after the bed was installed (very stiff!)Original key and owners manualAll lights. blinkers. horn. wipers. heater. fans. etc work properly.
Work done in last two months:Full service and tune upNew heater core Coolant flushNew battery
I know I'm forgetting a few things and am happy to answer questions. I may not remember every detail because most of the work was done almost ten years ago and the truck has been in my shop virtually unused since. I start it up and drive it around the block every once in a while. less than 500 miles in ten years. Work. life and other projects always seem to take precedence. I do know that you will not find a more solid. low mileage. never abused one ton dually. Great toy or toy hauler.  
I would prefer all interested buyers to come see the truck. If the truck is not as represented bid can be withdrawn and no negative feedback will be left. Cash at pickup is the only payment method excepted.
