This 1986 Ford F-150 is for sale in Newberg, Oregon with an asking price of $5,500 OBO. The truck was built by an 73-year-old hot rodder from Eugene Oregon. It rides on ’80s GM B-body front and rear frame clips connected together with custom rectangular tubing. Power comes from a Chevy 350 ci V8 with a Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. The drivetrain consists of a Turbo 350 automatic transmission and GM 10-bolt rear end. The front suspension was converted to air suspension.

I love the copious amounts of zip ties in the engine bay.
I am the current owner of this truck. Front airbags were removed, a lot of items have been fixed or updated. Some info here is incorrect, but I am looking for information on the build/builder. If you have an info to share, please reply here. I purchased the truck in 2017.
Hi Todd. Could you please share the information that is incorrect and I will update the article.
80s GM b-body front and rear frame clips, rectangular tube frame rails, 7.5 10 bolt GM rear end. It was on bags up front, but the set-up was old/sketchy. I would love to find info on the builder. Haven’t had any luck in nearly 2 years. I think this truck sat for quite a while in or around Eugene, Oregon? I even have a Google Earth image of the truck sitting behind the guys shop/garage.
I had the airbags removed, swapped wheels, rewired the engine bay and added more zip ties;) installed a new radiator, hoses, an electric fan, new fuel pump filter and lines. Still rocking the old Harwood fuel cell. Follow @diy_daddio on Instagram.
I was told it was g-body stubs but it clearly wasn’t when the newly ordered parts were compared. Took a while to figure out the stubs.
Thanks Todd. I updated the article.
The only help I can offer is the screen capture of the original listing. It says the builder’s name was “Arnie”.
