The “No Door”


Figured I should start a thread since this truck is starting to snowball. I bought this rolled Explorer for $400 a few months ago. This poor family owned & maintained this truck for over 20 years, before it was rolled in the hands of an 18 year old. The owner was dumbfounded when I cut out the windshield at his house & drove it home (at night) with a full face helmet!

Specs:
93 XLT Auto 4x4
170,xxx on chassis
Receipt from a Ford Dealership showing 60K on the new motor
Receipt for a rebuilt trans showing 18K
New - MAF, brake booster/master, cats & muffler

The plan was to just keep it in the yard since my DD is showing it’s age at 225k. This truck runs better than any 1st gen I’ve owned (15 or so). I literally had zero plans for it, until I found an old pair of lift springs under a pile of leaves, and so it begun!

I really want to see where this is going. I guess after you beat it to death, you can still pull the engine for a spare.

I happened to have a 99 Mountaineer in my yard that I had bought to do a motor swap. I was able to saw out the windshield, & cut off the roof to begin the transplant. My main goal was to have a windshield in this truck & I had to go as far as pie cutting the A pillar at its base to pull it up to line up.

Yesterday was a big day for The No Door. I peeled the tape off the windshield & drove it into town for smog & registration. The adventures are officially getting longer now! Tube doors coming soon.
