    would make a cool project/plow truck for someone unfortunately its a 250 not a 350 so it only has a 44 front, its been sitting since 1991 (pretty obvious) i wanted to puke when i saw the interior looks like its never been sat in, still has wrapping on the pedals. 1300 original miles and its basically been given its death sentence:cry:

    i believe somes 250's came with dana 60's up front back then. that hub looks too big to be a 44. see how it completely fills the diameter of the rim center hole? i know 44's from the 80's/90's would not completely fill the hole like that - only the 50's and 60's would. i'd crawl under there and take a better look.

    idk maybe it is a 60? my 75 had those same huge hubs but it was only a 44, I know that for a fact because it made it kind of hard to sell. this is one of the ones that have the really stupid steering set ups its "power assisted" manual steering the box dosent have any lines going to it but theres almost like towmotor like steering things on the front that help push/pull when you turn. it was a really bad idea and from what ive heard from a friend that had a similar truck they didnt drive very well and alot of the front end parts are impossible to find? i dont know though mine had been converted to normal power steering/gearbox

    THis truck is not far from my house. its in mint condtion minus the paint being faded. I talked to the lady and she said her husband bought it and parked it there and then died and it hasnt been moved since. I think it sits back off the road just enough were the salt from the road wont hit it.

    I was thinking it looked like a memorial of sorts, I thought maybe someones son or something. I would be just like her, not selling! Money will not replace the memory of her husband.

    Yeah but wave some $$$ in her face and start talking about the grand kids and you'll have it.

    reminds me of a '69 Z-28 near me. been parked rotting under a tree since the early 70's. story is a kid bought it new in '69, went off to vietnam, and never came home. his mother who still owns the house turns everyone away. a sad story for her, him, and the car.

    Man that would be a sweet project. I understand why she wouldn't want to sell it, but 1300 miles! Thats just cool.
