I've been searching for 6 months. I pick this up Friday. It's a mint 97 7.3 turbo. That's what I wanted. Not so much the lift and big tires but I can live with it. It's cool looking.

146k factory paint too.
Installing a leather interior, cloth seat aren't that great.

Mine too, that's why I wanted her and looked for so long. No rust, front just gone through, new glow plugs, fuel pump, clutch & rear main seal, alternator, tint, wheels and tires.

I'm excited like a little kid.
