For sale Vintage 1961 Ford Mr. Softee being sold as is, for Restoration or make into a FOOD TRUCK.. All Stainless interior equipment with 3 sinks hot and cold water for health department... are intact but needs to be gone over...  This has started to be restored.. Engine runs good no knocks, smoke etc.. Has New carburetor, New Master cylinder for brakes and a New Radiator. and a New Drive Shaft.... Engine needs a rear freeze out plug, transmission needs a tune up and lines replaced , also i have KING PINS  for this truck which should be replaced.... Truck runs but needs these items done before being road worthy.. Started to work on body; front of truck sanded and repainted. New lower  BODY  panels fabricated one on drivers side attached, one on passenger side is OFF as truck need to have gas tank either repaired or replaced... Both  SIDE STEPS NEED TO BE REPAIRED.. Besides this  the rest of body would have to be sanded and painted. as WELL AS INTERIOR OF TRUCK... The ICE CREAM  machine is a newer ELECTRA FREEZE MACHINE which has been tested and works ( needs to be cleaned and serviced ) PROBABLY NEEDS FREON... All the refrigeration compressors i had tested last year and appeared to work.. but also might need Freon.. The truck needs a Generator as one that was in truck was in it was an Onan 10CW Type; original but obsolete... and was removed... Now as a restoration project this truck is great. alot of work has been done / but  still needs MORE to MAke it show  WORTHY..   Some of  The IDEAS i,ve had for this is  #1 restore as an Ice Cream Truck,.. #2 remove Ice Cream machine and replace with deep fryer , Grill and Hood vent and make a Vintage Food truck... #3 Use Body and Chassis and replace drive train, Brakes and Front steering Suspension with a NEWER TRUCK EQUIPMENT and have a VERY COOL VINTAGE BODY LOOK  with a NEW  UP DATED MODERN MECHANICAL  SYSTEM... What ever the buyer decides the end result will be VERY VERY COOL AND A CROWD DRAWER.. WHICH IS WHAT ONE WANTS... On May-02-16 at 11:32:43 PDT, seller added the following information:

This is just an up date , as many have asked if truck runs...YES TRUCK RUNS  motor runs very well... NO SMOKE, NO KNOCKS, STARTS RIGHT UP.... we drive it around yard , but have to use a gas can and a  hose  as gas tank is not  connected....  HAS NEW MASTER CYLINDER , NEW RADIATOR [ THAT WAS 1/2 A GRAND ]... new drive shaft and U JOINTS.. and i have  KING PINS... now this IS NOT READY FOR ROAD, BUT NEEDS A LITTLE MORE  WORK....... Its a project... so if you dont like doing projects dont  bid on this... cause you will have to put money into it ..... thanks please feel free to ask questions.....

On May-03-16 at 10:21:45 PDT, seller added the following information:

well another up date people have been asking dimensions for towing purposes ; so length is 17 feet 6 inch, height is 8 feet 6 inch with another 17 inch on top for air conditioner and distance from outside of wheel to outside of wheel is about 70 inches.. this will let you know what size trailer needs to be.... i do also have a person interested in a outright purchase.. so if anyone is interested please contact me  thanks for looking
