An awesome stance, cool two-tone, big V8 power, and the right
subtle upgrades both for flair and to get the job done - that's
what you get with this 1972 Ford F-250 Ranger 4x4 Highboy.
Ford truck people know what a Highboy means for pickups. It's not a
hot rod for the road, but it is a start for the work-ready crowd.
They must be from the heart of the fifth or sixth generation, a
true F-250, and have a divorced transfer case (it required the
higher "Highboy" suspension.) The trim tag tells us all of that is
true! The trim tag also reveals that the two-tone Mallard Green and
Sea Pine Green are the factory-correct color combo. It has been
refreshed to have a terrific gloss. This luster helps highlight the
straightness of the body panels, and so does the premium Ranger
full-length trim. In fact, everything from the shine of the front
bumper to the way the doors close with confidence makes this truck
impressive. But the style also has substance. After all, we know
you love the look of polished 8-lug HD wheels. There are other
work-ready details, like the proper trailer hitch with electric
hookup, cab roof clearance lights, long western tow mirrors, and a
long bed with diamond plate protection that's absolutely ready to
get the job done.
The interior gets the classic truck look right with its sea of
green. They have updated pieces like the door panels and comfy
velour seat, but it really loves just giving you a vintage feeling.
That's why the dome light greets you when the door opens and the
Philco AM radio is still cranking out tunes. There's even a CB
radio. So it's easy to imagine sliding the rear glass and opening
up the vent windows to enjoy the breeze the old-school way. But in
a truck built for function, and so you'll certainly appreciate the
upgraded tach on the steering column.
Whether you want this for work or play (or both), you'll love the
extra power this one puts down. The motor was upgraded to Ford's
strong 390 cubic-inch V8. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel
carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. And it exhales with a sweet
rumble as headers feed the dual exhaust. That means you really get
the right kind of power and sound you expect from a truck like
this. It earns its Highboy nickname for the tall 4x4 stance that
came directly from the factory on these extra-tough F-250s. The
four-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control, especially
when you want to start off with some nice low-end torque. And the
power brakes and BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires make this a solid
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and owner's
manual packet. This is a truck that's presented as a true classic
that also makes sure you know it has true ability. So if you've
been looking for a distinctive F-250 Highboy, call today!
