I bought this truck with intentions to fix up, But Ive added more trucks to the heard since I got this one and have decided to focus on some of them. So Im selling this one.
It’s a 1977 Ford WT9000, Built in March 1977, has a 2007 Air Liner Cut off 2.89 Ratio, 290 Small Cam Cummins, 10 Speed Overdrive Transmission with High gear against the dash, P/S, A/C, 297,659 Miles, 2795 Engine Hours. Frame measures 11ft 1 in from rear of the cab to the rear of the frame, 149 Inches from center of front axle to center of rear axle, 18Ft overall length, 108 inches tall without the stacks. The roof mount A/C Unit is there, all complete, turns on but doesn’t blow cold. Wipers, lights, cab jack, and heater all work fine, fuel gauge and speedometer do not work. The engine runs very well, has very little to no blow-by, runs cool and doesn’t smoke. The engine drips a little oil from the plate that bolts to the block that holds the dipstick. It a very easy fix and its not pouring oil by any means. It also seeps a little bit of antifreeze from the tube going to the oil cooler, it just needs an O-ring to fix it. The clutch is strong and transmission shifts as it should, it could use a new Clutch Brake. The cab is solid and Rust FREE and the interior isn’t bad for the year. The headliner is out, but I have most of it laying in the Sleeper. Some of it might could be reused, or can be used as a templet worse case. Rear tires are older tires showing weathering, Front tires are Bridgestone R268 with 2020 date codes, 6 alum wheels, brakes have good pads and stop as they should. The old truck runs out good, she is geared very high, front end is tight but could use an alignment, it pulls to the driver side. The P/S cylinder drips a little P/S fluid and you do have to add some from time to time. I did notice the steering feels a little firm, I don’t know if the p/s pump is a little weak, the steering cylinder needs be rebuilt, or if its just the Nature of the truck.
Ive tried to list the good, bad, and ugly about the truck. It’s not perfect by any means, but is a very solid restorable hard to find truck. I wouldn’t suggest driving the truck home a long distance as its an old truck and anything unforeseen could happen along the way. If I missed anything, feel free to message me and I will answer your questions the best I can. I have a clear Ky title to the truck in my name. I do ask if you drive it out, there has to be insurance on the truck before it leaves unless you transfer the title first. I will need proof sent back to me that the title has been transferred out of my name once you get the truck home. You can view it Monday though Friday between the hours of 8-4 Eastern time at
