1977 Ford F-250 CustomClassic barn find. Built in Canada then shipped to Englewood Colorado where it was sold new. I am the third owner. Stock features all still function as they should with the exception of the temperature gauge, all other gauges work as they should. It is a rare crew cab short bed. It has a factory built all steel flatbed with a headache rack on it. The body has very minor surface rust, otherwise rust free. Floors, rockers, body mounts are all solid. All 4 doors work as they should and each has custom built steps that fold out when the door is opened and tuck under the cab when they are closed. The seats are in original condition and have saddle blanket seat covers on them. Under the seat covers is very minor cracking but no missing padding or fabric. It has a big block 460 with an Edelbrock 600 carb(original carb is included). Behind that is a 4 speed transmission and a divorced transfer case. It has dual exhaust that needs replaced. It's very loud. Dual battery set up, but only has one in it now. It at some point had an aftermarket power steering setup added to it but it doesn't have a power steering pump on it now, I just drive the old school way, powered by Armstrong! The tires are very good with many miles of tread left. All glass is good except the windshield has a crack. Sliding rear window works and latches properly. Door windows and wing windows all function very smooth and seal great. Windshield wipers and washer work great. Heater is hot, not equipped with AC. The AM radio still plays good through the single speaker in the center of the dash. The interior lights all work as they should, even the dome light, exterior lights all work as they should. It has been wired for an RV style trailer plug and a round 6 style. It has an electric trailer brake controller installed. The flatbed has an under body storage box on each side.
I was using this truck as a daily driver and it runs and drives excellent, down the highway at 70 with now wobbles or bouncing, just floating down the road. I've averaged around 12-14 miles per gallon.
When I purchased this truck it was optioned with LPG. The LPG gauge and selector switch are both still installed in the cab. I have removed everything else that went with it but it is also included in the sale should you decide to go back to it or run it as dual fuel, gas or propane, like it was before. The propane tank still has 60%, and is unbolted from the bed, but again, all bolts, hoses, fuel lines, carb will be included with the sale.
She's a great old school factory hi-boy. She deserves to be restored but is fully functional as it is.
It's a real head turner and gets tons of compliments every where she goes.
Please feel free to ask any questions, and if your local to Colorado Springs I'd be happy to show her to you and maybe take her for a spin.
