    Default 1995 Ford F-150 Centurion Conversion

    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to introduce you to "Big Bertha".



    This truck has been in my family forever. My dad bought it brand new off the Ford lot back in the winter of 1995. I was 15. This was the "family truckster" that we used to go nearly everywhere. At the time, we did a fair amount of commuting from mid Wisconsin to the north shore in IL. The commuting stopped in 1998 and the miles going on slowed down. I bought it from my dad back in 2007 and I used it lightly. It's been sitting in my garage for 3 years now, since I bought a newer truck. It has some needs, which I will outline below.

    I'm really posting here to see if there is interest from the conversion community. I'm hesitant to post it on Facebook or Craigslist locally because I do not want it to be sold as a winter beater, etc.

    I'm not even sure what it's worth, so I'd be interested in offers.

    What I know:
    Engine: 351W
    Trans: 4 speed w/OD
    Drive train: 4x4 (push button w/ manual hubs)
    Miles: 116,9xx

    The good:
    It starts and runs good
    Shifts good
    Goes into 4wd and low range
    Power accessories work (windows, door locks)

    The bad (needs):
    Seepy oil pan, will need replacement eventually
    U-joints are shot in the front
    Headliner needs attention
    Needs brake work
    Speedometer waves at speeds over 40

    The ugly:
    Has some rust on various areas of the body.
    Fair amount of rust underneath.
    Rain gutters need attention
    Paint could use a good polish, a little faded
    Graphics have some high pressure damage (they were installed back in 1996)
    3rd brake light in the topper broke, it's there but needs a new mount.
    Spare tire rim is very rusty, should probably be replaced
    Needs new spare tire
    Lamination issue on windshield, lower corners passenger and drivers side

    I'm selling it for a few reasons:
    1. I don't really need it anymore since I got a newer pickup truck.
    2. Some of it's needs I just don't have time for.
    3. I'd like the space in the garage for another toy.

    I'd like to see it go to someone that really appreciates it and would want to restore it to it's previous glory.

    Message me here for more info.

    Thanks for the inquiry obspsd. I've got an offer pending from the fourdoorbronco facebook group.
