I shoulda bought it. Only went for $2250. Talk about a babe magnet!

I think the seat covers were hand-woven by Lizzy Warren's great grandmother.

It's not a style for everybody. It sort of grows on some people though. Like a fungus.:drool:
the shifter handle, bottle antenna and front bumper are almost worth the price of admission to the auction. hard to tell from the pic, which motor did they use, the straight 6-4.0?

I have no idea what engine it was...had some very nicely done custom aluminum work for the valve cover and the side covers on the block. It sounded real good too..for a 6-banger.

Athlete's foot and jock-itch type of fungus, maybe. :buddies:
LOL! I did a sort of "rat rod beach fishing rig" project with one of my old Broncos some years ago. Had a lot of fun with it..took it to a major Bronco enthusiasts event more as a joke than anything. Had a bunch of old wood water skis attached to the roof rack too.

Stacks on p/u’s aren’t my kinda thing. The eight ball may have been a clue to the builder :lmao: One of the guys here took a western star cab and sleeper, shrunk it down to fit on a F350 frame added air suspension, etc.....it’s pretty sweet. It is getting repowered, but I forgot with what. For some reason, I’m thinking a Detroit 6 sounds right.
