Re: Wow, \'spensive 14FF.
You're not gonna want to hear this, but rust free. The 78 might've had some surface rust around the wheel wells, but not cancer. I hate to break it to you, but unless it comes from a feedlot or dairy, it's gonna be solid over here. I rarely see rusted out vehicles or equipment.
A couple years ago we bought our '76 GMC K15 on one of these surplus equipment auctions, it's original owner was a dryland wheat farmer. We stripped the interior out to redo it, I found a little spot of surface rust, no bigger than say the pouch of a leatherman tool. Brushed it, sanded it, primered ir, sealed it. Other than that the cab is dandy. I unbolted the steering box off it this summer to change it out, there was paint on the frame rail behind the box. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
