So as I was looking for something even more unique....

My wife and I took a trip to Arizona back in July '07 to pick up a 1969 Ford Crew Cab 4x4 that was rust free! Made a deal for the truck without motor and transmission... perfect canidate for a Cummins swap!






And it all begins....

As it turns out the "rust free" truck wasn't so rust free! Typical buyer beware... can't believe that the world is so full of scamers!
