Vehicle Description

Premium, vintage, powerful, and still exceptionally capable - this 1997 Ford F-250 XLT Super Duty is the long-bed turbodiesel 4x4 that really knows how to do it all.

This is a darn good looking truck. It starts with how straight and clean the sheetmetal is on this long bed pickup. That's especially highlighted by the lines of the attractive two-tone. And when you have a long bed pickup, there's just something cool about having a paintjob that maximizes its road-owning look. You'll appreciate all the details - from the bright bumpers to the integrated side steps. The full presentation isn't perfect, but it's an impressive survivor that won't make you think twice about putting it to work. And that's the point of a classic like this. That's why there's a full bed liner, lifted 4x4 stance on HD wheels, and a proper trailer hitch with wiring plug and trailer brake.

Inside is a comfy and well-preserved presentation in an attractive blue. It all feels like a time capsule, right down to pattern on the velour seats and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. But you'll also love this for all the features that make it a comfortable pickup. This includes power windows, power locks, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. The rear seat of this extended cab is great for everything from carrying more people to securely storing gear. This is built for true long haul work, that's why you have a tilt steering column, cruise control, and full gauge package with a handy tach, which is always great for when you're towing.

The massive 7.3-liter PowerStroke turbodiesel already has a reputation for being powerful and practically bombproof. NASA should use these to drive to the moon and back. With this kind of status, it's great to have the numbers-matching motor under the hood. And the clean condition of the engine bay that still contains its original decals lets you know that this F-250 was never a mud slinger. But if you do go off-road, this one is equipped just the way you'd want it. It has a two-speed 4x4 transfer case, tall ground clearance, and enough torque to move a cabin. But even when you just stay on the pavement, this is an attractive package. There's power steering and power brakes featuring front discs and ABS. The transmission is a four-speed automatic with highway-friendly overdrive, and there are even dual fuel tanks to let you go farther.

Complete with the owner's manual, this an appealing and capable 4x4 with all the features you want. So at a price like this, you don't want to let it slip away. Call now!
