1953 Ford F-250 Description

This is Fat Betty.
She is a 1953 Ford F250 that has been swapped onto a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer V8 2WD. (I say Explorer because more people know what they are)
I have documented the swap onto Explorer frame over 26 episodes on my YouTube channel Nathan's Garage.
I have built it in the style of a Rat Rod on the outside but with all the modern conveniences of a daily driver on the inside.
Mechanically it is 100% stock apart from the removal of all the CATS & an after market air cleaner.I did this so that the new owner will be able to take it to any garage for servicing if needed & it will be exactly the same as getting an Explorer serviced which every mechanic in the land knows well.
The conversion uses the floor and firewall from the Explorer so it has:Working Air Conditioning,Cruise control,Adjustable steering column &Electrically adjustable Leather seats.
It's an awesomely fun truck to own and drive and gets attention wherever she goes.
Please watch my youTube channel as that can give you a way better idea of who and what she is than I could ever do in this description.
She is located in North Hollywood, Los Angeles. 91601.
I'm open to her being shipped.
