whoo hoo !
71 f350 camper special cab, was motor home - cut it off at the cab (frame that is, lol) and only parted the motor tranny and suspension

this thing is MINT and will be in my driveway in 2 weeks (flat decking it and making room,) still at ralphs up top for now

super stoked to find this, and thanks to one of the guys who pulled me out at stave the other day to show me pics of it - thats all i could think of since hahah

heres a few shots, and a shot or two of my daily its gonna mount onto - need a box !!!!
