Hey gang, I finally found it after 6 years of scouring Craigslist. Friday evening I was scrolling through California's Craigslist regions looking for cars like I always do. I have like 10 searches I usually do for different cars every week. One of those is "Ford Unibody". I've dreamed of having a short bed unibody with a big back window someday. I don't think I've ever seen one come up that hasn't been restored or with a $30k sticker... But I found an ad that was a bit light on details but the asking price was pretty damn good! The truck was a farm truck for many years up in the Selma area of California. It's completely original - Paint, Motor (223CI), Trans(3 speed on column), and has been sitting in a field up there since 92(the last sticker on the plate). Out of the DMV system, no title but has paperwork back to the last registered owner. After a phone call with the seller, My brother in law and I drove up a truck and trailer to get it. After getting it home, it's everything I've dreamed of. Just bone stock, and not messed with. No one added a stupid column off a 86 Taurus, or put in a bench seat from the 92 Arrowstar in the back lot. The only through rust is at the bottom of the tailgate where they usually show issues. The body is straight as an arrow, and the original paint is patina'd beautifully. There's no place for that sneaky Bondo to hide. My ultimate plans are to build a period-correct mild custom. It's so original, I'd feel guilty going nuts on it. I want to lower it 2" maybe do some wide whites. For the few missing pieces on the truck, I'm buying either used or NOS parts. The first order of business is to get it to be a dependable driver. It actually runs and drives! The guys I got it from said he put new points, plugs, battery, cleaned the tank and carb, and a new master cylinder on it. It's fine, but it definitely needs a solid going through. Here's how I found her.
