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!
