This is a very original, solid, clean, and unusual Ford F250 4 X 4 truck. Just 3,550 were produced of this particular model, and this truck, with it's light blue, although somewhat nicely worn paint, it's all there, and the original panels, and panel fitment look great, the doors close easily, and all of the glass is nice.
The interior is mostly original, all of the accessories such as the heater, windshield wipers, the turn signals, lights, and gauges work.
This is a 2 owner truck since new, and it has lived it's life in eastern Oregon's high desert, so there are no rust issues with this truck.
This truck, equipped with a 352 V8 starts, runs, and drives very nicely, and the lack of gear noise, squeaks, and rattles frankly, surprised me!
The clutch is easy to push, and although this truck does not have power steering, it is truly easy to steer and maneuver. Additionally, the brakes work great, and the truck is comfortable to drive.
This truck is also loaded with some interesting accessories as well. 3 fuel tanks, so if you're up in the woods hunting or 4 wheeling, you wont run out of fuel. There's an operating winch on the front bumper that's controllable at the winch or from inside the cab, there's a trailer brake, a rear bumper tank to add a little extra weight to the rear of the truck for additional traction, a bed mounted tool box in addition to the factory side compartments.
This is a well built Ford F250 4 X 4, that will get you there and back wherever it is you choose to go. It's strong, comfortable, reliable, very well maintained, fun to drive, and a lot of additional equipment on board to ensure safety, comfort, and convenience.
This style of Ford truck is not only desirable, but to find a clean, original Custom Cab 4 x 4, in excellent, reliable condition that you can actually drive everyday in comfort is a nice find!
