For Sale: 1985 Ford F250 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this 1985 Ford F250 XLT. This XLT Diesel comes equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission is currently only showing only 92,285 CarFax documented miles! The 7th generation of the Ford F-Series is a range of trucks that was produced by Ford from the 1980 to 1986 model years. The first complete redesign of the F-Series since the 1965 model year, the seventh generation received a completely new chassis and body, distinguished by flatter body panels and a squarer grille. This generation marked several firsts for the model line, including the introduction of the Ford Blue Oval grille emblem, the introduction of a diesel engine to the model line, and a dashboard with a full set of instruments. While the dashboard design remained the same, the optional woodgrain trim was updated for a more modern appearance and the seat trim was updated. As an option on higher-trim vehicles, Ford introduced a brushed-aluminum overlay trim panel for the rear tailgate, mounted flush between the taillamps. In 1982, Ford did something revolutionary for the consumer truck market. They partnered with International Harvester to introduce the 6.9Liter IDI diesel engine in their heavy-duty truck lineup. The 6.9Liter IDI diesel engine became an available option on 1983 model year trucks. It offered comparable horsepower numbers to Ford's 6.6Liter V8 gasoline engine at the time but had 6% more torque. Owners opting for the new 6.9l IDI engine also reaped the benefits of a diesel engine, including heavier duty components for better durability and significantly better fuel economy. This 1985 XLT is also equipped with the 4-speed manual transmission, brake booster, CB radio, power steering, power windows, power door locks and A/C (blowing cool). The mid-80's diesels are starting to come into their own in today's market and are expected to continue rising, so if a low mileage diesel is on your want list, this one might check all the boxes!
