Description

Lot #757 - This is a fully restored and extremely rare 1947 Ford 79T Stake Bed cab-over engine body throwback. This body style was built by Ford for only four years, first in 1941 and 1942, and then in 1946 and 1947. This 79T has known just three previous owners since being sold new in Montana, and it was restored in 2007 to exacting specifications. To maintain a high level of craftsmanship, a second 79T was purchased by the restorer in order to source authentic, original Ford body panels, details and parts. The result is one of the finest examples available anywhere. Documented ownership history dating back to new is on file, and less than 400 miles have been driven since restoration.
