1984 Ford F-250 2 door standard cab Additional Info:

Up for auction here is a 1984 Ford ¾ ton 4 wheel drive truck with a stock 6.9 diesel engine and a 4 speed manual transmission. This truck has kind of a unique story behind it.

I bought it a couple of years ago from an older gentleman that, from what I was told, bought it in the early ‘90’s. He then proceeded to put tons of money into it. (He provided me with over $7,000 worth of receipts in parts and labor!) From looking at the receipts, it appears this work was all done in the mid ‘90’s. The truck, which had a camper on it at the time, was taken on a few camping trips and then parked. I talked with the son of the truck owner, and he said that after he quit going on trips in the mid ‘90’s, he didn’t think his dad ever drove it any farther than to the local grocery store or post office. He said he didn’t think his dad put any more than 10,000 miles on the truck since he bought it.

About two years ago I bought it. I then removed the camper and flat bed, and planned on putting a longer, wider flat bed on it, but now my plans have changed, and I just need to find a good home for it. Now that you know something about its history, I’ll tell you something about the truck itself:

I have only put about 2,000 miles on the truck since I have owned it. The odometer says 63,396, but I would imagine the odometer has most likely gone over once. Below is a partial list of new and repaired parts that were put into this truck that have 12,000 miles or less on them:

• Transmission & Clutch: New ring gear, clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing, etc.. (I notice that the steering wheel has cruise control on it and there are some cruise controls under the hood so I think the truck originally had an automatic that was replaced with a four speed transmission, although a couple of guys told me that some manual transmission trucks also came equipped with cruise control.)

• Brakes & Wheels: New shoes, pinion seals, wheel cylinders, axle seals, carrier bearings, races

• Misc:Some newhoses, bulbs, wipers switch, power steering pump, heater hose, u-joints, front drive shaft repair, right rear grease seal, glow plugs, starter, etc., etc. (There are lots of other parts that have been replaced or repaired, but you get the idea. As I mentioned, I do have the receipts for all of the work done.)

It also has really nice Warn manual hubs on it, and a manual glow plug switch to extend the life of the glow plugs. (You only push the switch to turn the glow plugs on when you need them. They don’t come on all of the time like they would in a stock system.)

Unfortunately, the previous owner parked it in a canyon where it sat for years and was only driven occasionally so now it needs a lot of work. As you can see in the photos, the floorboards are rusted out in places, the windshield is cracked from a limb recently falling from a tree, and the brakes work well but have a leak somewhere so you need to add fluid regularly. There is also asmall exhaust leak up near the engine, and there is a leak around the windshield on the driver’s side corner. Also, the transfer case works great except, for some reason, it makes an occasional clunking noise when pulling heavy loads up a hill. You can feel it make a small jerk when it does this.

The transmission, front end, rear end, and 4x4 work great and don’t make any noises.

The truck is currently not getting fuel to the fuel pump, so it does not run. It was running strong and smoke-free down the highway, then it suddenly started smoking a little, but then it smoked more and started cutting out while going down the road, so I parked it and asked some guys who know these older 6.9 diesel Fords what they thought was wrong. They told me it was probably a fuel problem and that the fuel lines, seals, etc., are old and probably need to be replaced. I was also told the fuel pump could be going. With this in mind, I put a brand new fuel pump on the truck, then I took the fuel line off where it goes into the fuel filter and had a friend turn over the engine while I watched. No fuel came through the line, so I am pretty sure it is what they say it probably is…a leak in the fuel line somewhere. Also, the last time it was running, I did notice a few drops of diesel dripping from somewhere under the truck, but I wasn’t thinking and turned the truck off before looking to see where the drips were coming from…not a smart move. If I could find the drips, it would probably be easy to fix and solve the problem. It could be an easy fix, but I am very busy with work and just don’t have the time to fix it right now and need the space in my yard.

It also comes with a clear title in my name.

Well, I guess that’s about it. The truck has had a lot of work done to it, but now it needs a lot of work again from just sitting. You can fix it up though and it would make a great truck. Put some sort of bed on it and get it running and you would be ready to go. It comes with a clear title in my name. I will need a $200 deposit received within 24 hours of the close of the auction, the balance paid within 7 days, and the truck picked up within 3 weeks. Thanks for viewing this auction.
