If you love classic trucks, then this 1978 Ford F-250 will get you excited. It has a ton of terrific vintage details to keep it a cool classic. But they also made the right worthwhile upgrades to keep it a great driver/worker - including liner paint in the long bed and cold-blowing A/C.
The creamy paint is the right way to represent the 1970s, but it also doesn't take much to see the smooth gloss that's a telltale sign of a more modern investment. There's also an excellent shine from the chrome bumpers and grille. Plus, nice body lines, good weather-stripping, clean glass, and doors that close with confidence all show off a quality pickup. While you'll love this vintage presentation, we also know this one is attractive for its ability. The F-250 came standard with a longer wheelbase and larger bed, so when it's time to get to work, this truck is up for doing more. Wide tow mirrors, liner paint in the bed, working cab running lights, and proper 8-lug wheels give this one an undeniable workman appeal.
The earth tones continue inside to keep the vintage feeling going. And just like the exterior, you can tell they took the time to make the right investments while still giving you the right classic charm. So the seat, door panels, carpeting, dash, and other fundamentals feel fresh. It's even nice in the details, like the working dome light and brightwork trim. There are well-integrated upgrades like the wood-rimmed steering wheel and a retro-style AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth. And while the sliding rear glass gives you a steady draft through the cab, the under-dash A/C unit makes sure it's always a cool breeze
Under the hood is Ford's hardy 351 cubic-inch V8. This one has not only been well-maintained, but it has also been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and a true dual exhaust. There are nice supporting pieces, too, like the HEI distributor and newer battery. This one likes to be a truck you can drive, and so you have easy-to-enjoy features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a C6 three-speed automatic transmission. There are even investments within the last few years that make it a better cruiser, like the newer dual exhaust and newer dual fuel tanks.
This is the smooth-riding vintage F-250 that has the comfort and ability that rivals some brand-new pickups. So if you love a terrific classic truck, you know you don't want to let this one slip away. Call today!!!
