1986 Ford LTL9000

Here are a few pictures of what my truck looked like when I baught it, and in the process of repairing it.





Alittle rust cancer:


What's missing?

Looks like you have a good start on the body work. It is fun if you know what you are doing, and by the photos you DO. I was never very good with body work. I could do a decent job but I did not enjoy it.

Since you have it torn down that far think about this. The original owner of my truck (Im second) bought it incomplete. He added a frame under the cab and also mounted the sleeper on it to make it like a Unibuilt cab. I think at the time, 1989, Volvo was the only one to have both the cab and sleeper together on air ride. I could try to take some pics if youre interested in doing that.

Who do you call when the lawmakers ignore the law?

Suspension swap from Hendrickson 4 spring, to Neway ARD 244.









I wish I had taken a few more of teh suspension swap when it was closer to being completed, but I didn't.

That's a nice looking rig, the New England weather sure plays hell on the bodys of vehicles, moreso than here.

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if....
Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes
and government intrusion, while slothful, lazy behavior
is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid and
subsidized housing, and free cell phones.
