1978 Ford F-250 Additional Info:

I believe these may be original miles on the truck, given the condition. It was nearly rust free when I got it. The cab corners were replaced as was the drivers side section above the rear wheel. The only current known rust on it is above the rear wheel on the passenger side. 429 runs fantastic. Pertronix ignition. 73 Mercury Marquis showed 87kon it whenI pulled the motor from. It does smoke a little and burns about a quart per 300 miles. I would trust it to take me anywhere. Rebuilt C6 with under 2000 miles on it.Grafted an early 90's bucket bench seat in with console. Rear seat is as original. New rubber floor about 10 years ago. Some sound deadening added when installed. Some new rubber gaskets in the doors and windows. Doors open and shut well.Painted flat black over an original yellow service body. Box wasfrom an XLT had minimal rust on the floor so I welded a sheet of1/4" diamond plate over it - 5th wheel ball.AM/FM. Dual tanks both work, but fuel gauge doesn't register on one of the tanks. I haven't driven it much in about 5 years, gas should be stabilized or drained, but it runs good and everything but the one fuel sending unit works. Took the white spokes off and put them on the trailer, so solid steel rims go with it not the spokes in the first picture. 10 ply tires in fairto goodcondition.Don't need it, but don't need to sell it. 2 wheel drive.Its not dent free.As always, you should look in person- but feel free to ask questionsbefore you bid.
