Makes no mention of a conversion. Ad seems to be representing this as a factory longbox 4X4

No photos of the interior.
No photos of the engine and engine compartment
No photos of the undercarriage.

Looks to be fairly solid, but definitely rough around the edges.

$30,000? :?

The engine swap seems like an odd choice. Why would you pull out an FE to put in a small block? Seems like a lot of work and not have much to show for it when you are done. That is a big truck for such a small powerplant.

This is the one that was on Ebay several times. It has the Coyote 5.0, not a regular 302 smallblock. I talked to the owner several times. He has over 40k in it. We were going over the VIN and it did seem like it was a factory longbox 4x4, but I'm still not positive on that.

There's no in-cab gas tank fuel filler behind the rear driver side door so its either been filled in or is not a 74 cab.

Going through old conversation in my phone. Here is VIN from this cab.

I looked close at the videos he sent me. I believe the rear of the frame was extended for the longbed. It is originally a 4x4. It is converted to 78-79 style steering and front axle. I almost think it may have a 78-79 frame. Video is grainy and I don't have a good pic of front crossmember to tell for sure. I have interior pics too, but I was really only interested in the motor swap. The guy who did the work did a really good job. The motor mounts look very high quality and everything works like it should. Has power steering also (these motors have electric power steering stock).
