1984 Ford F-350 pickup
Up for auction is a really solid and tough 1984 Ford F-350 one ton Ford pickup truck with a 4-speed manual transmission, and I think a 427 or 428 gas engine. We have had this truck for quite a few years. It was originally purchased by my family at an auction from a local government agency, who I imagine probably bought it new. It has been a solid and dependable truck until the 460 that was in it had some mechanical issues. My Dad decided to put a different engine in it, so he pulled out the 460, and had a guy put in what I think is a 427 or 428, I’m not sure which. I don’t know the original mileage of the engine, all I know is the guy he bought it from told us it was a really solid, great running engine, but he wanted a different engine in his truck (maybe a diesel, I can’t remember), so he decided to pull this one out and sell it. The problem is, the guy who put it in for Dad was apparently not as good of a mechanic as he thought he was, because after the engine was installed, he couldn’t get it to run past a rough idle. (We think he did something to the timing.) It could be an easy fix, but I don’t know. Dad put a better bed on it, planned on getting the engine running and painting it so he would have a nice-looking, dependable truck again, but decided that he didn’t need a truck this stout and bought a ¾ ton Ford.
The odometer says the truck has 64,727 miles on it, but since it starts over as soon as it reaches 100,000 miles, I am pretty sure it has gone over once, so I am not sure of the original mileage on the truck. Other than the engine problems everything else worked great on the truck when it was running. We pulled horse trailers, equipment trailers, etc. (it comes with a heavy-duty hitch), and it never made any noises or had any serious problems. The transmission, rear end, front end, and transfer case all seemed very solid. It also has the optional dual fuel tanks, instrument gauges instead of idiot lights, a brake controller for trailer towing, manual hubs, and a few other options. Unfortunately, after sitting for a while, now it won’t even idle so now it needs to be towed or hauled on a trailer.
From what I can see, the body has some minor parking lot dings and some dents in the front corners of each of the front fenders. It also has a small rusted through area on each side of the bed on the bottom rear corner on the outside and rusted through areas at the front of the passenger’s side floor board. Other than some tears in the outside edge on the driver’s seat, the seat looks pretty good, as does the instrument panel and the rest of the interior, other than the dash which, as is usually the case, is cracked.
Fix the engine that’s in it (or put your own in), and you will have a very stout, solid truck. Take a close look at the photos, and if you have any questions, just ask. It comes with a clear title. I will need a $200 deposit received within 24 hours of the close of the auction, and the balance paid for within 7 days and the truck picked up within 3 weeks. Thanks for viewing this auction!
