This 1988 Ford F-350 has 4x4 ability, the space to carry
everyone/everything, and even a cool history. So it's great to get
this whole package for one affordable price.
There is an instant appeal of a big F-Series like this. It has a
sturdy and rugged look that instantly gets you taken seriously.
This really has all the extra-duty features you want on an F-350.
You've got the clearance from the tall 4x4 stance, serious capacity
of the long bed with bed liner, and ability to go further with dual
fuel tanks. Plus, there's full trailering package with the wide tow
mirrors, Class III hitch on the rear with six-pin plug, and the
bars already in place in the bed for the fifth wheel rig. This
example has the right look of a truck that has earned its keep
going to work, but still keeps the quality of a durable friend. And
when people ask about its history, this one has a story to tell.
The consignor states it was bought new by New Mexico State
University's physical science laboratory. They have a reputation
for utilizing the big open lands of the Southwest to investigate
and develop plenty of technical advances. And this has certainly
been around Roswell, too. So while it's no UFO hunter, it certainly
has seen some cool places under its first owners.
The quad cab design is rare from this era, and it gives you the
advantage of having a back seat that's as spacious as a large
sedan. There's room for six total across two rows of benches, and
the cloth upholstery is both durable and quite comfy. You get
desirable features like the factory AM/FM stereo and cold-blowing
R134a air conditioning. And because this was used for the long
haul, it has some particularly nice features like cruise control
and an added gas saver fuel-economy gauge.
The 5.8-liter V8 is always a good decision for stoutness, power,
and good parts availability. And this comes from the era of fuel
injection for added durability for starting and running strong. As
a hardy F-350, this has Ford C6 heavy-duty three-speed automatic
transmission. Plus, the proper two-speed transfer case and meaty BF
Goodrich All-Terrain T/As give you proper go-anywhere 4x4 ability.
Add power steering and power brakes with discs up front, and this
is a very useful total package.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and owner's
manual. This is serious utility with a cool story, too. Don't miss
