This awesome little truck was reported
to have been owned by actor Lorne Greene
of Bonanza fame and used at his California ranch.
It is believed to have been purchased
from his estate by a prior owner.
The utility body and accessories are original
tothe truck and very rare.
Details include the original semaphore
which extends from the driver's side,
warning oncoming drivers.
A container of flares is fitted to the right side,
and it wears the original Ford branded tool box
and brass padlock.
The flat bed features removable
stake bed sides and an original crane
for hoisting heavy cargo.
Beyond the interesting and rare original equipment,
This Ford retains its original Henry Ford steel and
rests on a high quality Morfab Chassis
with four-link rear and solid axle,
drop spindle front suspension.
Disc Brakes are fitted up front,
and the truck rides with an aggressive rake
on Wheelsmith 15" and 16" wheels wrapped
with Diamondback wide white radials.
Power comes courtesy of a
GM "Fast Burn" 350 (5.7 liter) smallblock V8.
The engine has been further enhanced
with a more aggressive but still streetable cam,
and a top quality QuickFuel carburetor.
This truck now puts out approximately
425 Horsepower making for a thrilling drive.
When you're ready to relax and cruise,
the 700R4 Automatic Transmission
allows for easy overdrive highway driving.
Power Brakes and Air Conditioning
keep things comfortable and easy to drive.
The paintwork on the All Steel Body is exquisite
and has been meticulously maintained by
the careful, collector owner.
The single-stage black paint has hundreds of hours
in hand finishing to ensure crisp, clean reflections.
Traditional hand striping can be found
just about everywhere you look
from the dash to the rear axle.
The wood bed has been beautifully restored
and the signs courtesy of the owner's working farm
are traditionally painted and finished
with real gold leaf.
Everywhere you look on this truck
you find wonderful details and exquisite workmanship.
This truck was built to a very high standard
at a cost of over $100,000.
It is a very rare and unusual body,
and a truly individual hot rod.
