For Sale: 1978 Ford F250 in Grants Pass, Oregon

Vehicle Description

This 1978 Ford F250 4x4 is powered by a 400 ci V8 engine backed by a C6 automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case. Features include dual gas tanks, a tilt steering column, recently serviced air conditioning, power steering and brakes, and the Camper Special package. This metallic copper and ecru F250 with a brown vinyl interior is available now and comes with a clear Oregon title in the current owner's name.

The exterior of this fleetside long-bed truck is finished in metallic copper with ecru side and tailgate inserts. Features include chrome bumpers, dual headlights, an aluminum grille, folding side mirrors, color-keyed wheel flares, dual gas doors, and a beige SnugTop camper shell with sliding side windows and a locking rear window. Additional features include chrome bed tie-down hooks, a locking passenger bedside storage compartment, aluminum treadplate bedside and tailgate protectors, dual taillights with integrated reverse lights, and a Ford-branded tailgate applique. The seller reports there is bubbling under the paint on one of the cab pillars. As the photos in the gallery show, the clearcoat is peeling on the upper sections of the body.

A set of chrome 16.5-inch 8-lug chrome wheels with manual locking front hubs is wrapped in Bridgestone Dueler A/T raised-white-letter radial tires. All wheels are showing rust from age.

The bench seat is upholstered with brown vinyl. Interior features include a black vinyl floor mat, floor-mounted 4x4 transfer case shifter, manual windows, power steering, power brakes, and tan and brown door panels. Additional features include a tilt steering column with an automatic shifter, air conditioning, cruise control, a trailer brake controller, a copper dashboard with a copper vinyl top pad, simulated woodgrain accents, and a Phillips AM/FM/CD radio. The upholstery on the seat and vinyl dash pad is showing cracks from age.

An 85-mph speedometer and gauges for the oil pressure, fuel level, alternator, and coolant temperature are mounted in a simulated woodgrain panel ahead of the driver. The odometer reads 61,900 miles but the true mileage is unknown.

Power is provided by a 351ci V8 engine backed by a C6 automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case. Underhood features include power steering and brakes, cruise control, and electronic ignition. According to the seller, the air conditioning was recently serviced and a tune-up and oil change were performed.

This 4x4 pickup came from the factory equipped with solid front and rear axles and the Camper Special option. Stopping is handled by power brakes.
