This 1978 Ford F-350 Flatbed has a beautifully bright style and a truckload of utility. And while it's nearly impossible to find a one-ton dually from this era, it's especially impressive that you can pick this one up for such an affordable price.
A classic truck finished in a newer application of metallic silver is always going to be attractive. Of course, what's really appealing here are all the HD truck features. This means wide towing mirrors, top running lights, eight-lug wheels, and dual rear tires. The 1978 trucks had a special front end. This looks especially nice with black details because it goes well with the steel flatbed in the rear. With a lockable storage box, air compressor, LED lighting, a trailer ball step bumper, and a headache rack, this is pretty darn versatile. And there are even cool weathered wood stake sides for added function and style. This was a project by a grandson and grandfather, and so you may find a few of your own areas to update if you need a show-quality flatbed. But overall, it's already an impressively done classic that will get your business a ton of attention if you parked it outside the front door today. And those with the bigger toys are probably eyeing the gooseneck in the flatbed. Or if you have a few motorcycles, we bet you're thinking about how easy it would be to have a ramp and mounting points for a few Harleys. Basically, it's the one-tone classic that has the potential for a ton of fun.
The interior has a clean red look that showcases a true vintage truck style, including the tapestry seat cover. There were also good investments in the door panels, dash pad, and durable rubber floor to keep it all looking good. There are fun updates for the driver, too, like the grippy three-spoke steering wheel and a true horseshoe shifter. And you'll love surprising a few people with your upgraded air horns. Plus, the Bluetooth stereo means you can choose all the best music for the long haul.
The engine bay has a terrifically honest style. It reminds you that this has spent decades earning its keep. And this 351 cubic-inch V8 fires up with the kind of gusto that reminds you a well-kept Ford small block is a bedrock of a powerhouse. There are plenty of easy upgrades available for the hardy 351, and even a big block or a diesel fits in the ample engine bay. So we bet the value price has your mind racing about all the possibilities. But from day one this has a work-ready attitude with power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed manual with a low granny first gear to give you plenty of low-end torque.
This is industrial-grade fun for a surprisingly affordable price. So don't miss this deal on an awesome F-350 flatbed dually. Call today!!!
