When did you purchase it and for how much?

The truck was in amazing condition when I purchased it. It needed absolutely nothing. It is an original paint truck

I bought the truck as it sits with a stroked 410, 435 horse and 435 torque.

Solid lift cam. 4500 stall ,486 gears with a spool.

Any stories regarding this project?

This truck was purchased new in Saskatoon at Merlin Ford by a couple who used it for hauling their camper.

It has never been driven in the winter.

The next owner bought the truck in original condition and built the drive-train up to race at the local drag strip. I saw this truck at the strip and at car shows and fell in love with it.

I thought that I would love to own this truck. In June of 2009 I saw it was up for sale, so I went and bought it.

Check out the pictures of this truck!

First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
