Description:

1974 Ford F-250

Selling one very sweet truck - 1974 Ford F-250 4x4 with new Cummins conversion, done by pros and many upgrades like power steering and power brakes that you don't get in a 74'. I have much invested and never wanted to sell, I planned to keep tricking it out but life happens and here we are. This truck needs to go to someone who is ready to enjoy it and take it to the next level of awesomeness.
Motor has less than 6k miles - rebuilt out of a 95 dodge with a stick shift, and all the work was done by the professionals at DFI (http://www.dfiperformance.biz/), not hacked together in my home garage. These guys actually know what they are doing, here are some of the things they did:
- 5.9L 12V CUMMINS, 180hp- Bd Super B turbo, turned the pump and set timing at 16degrees- installed 3k governor springs in pump- ARP head studs and new head gasket, BD exhaust manifold- rebuilt Trans - Reman C6 W heavy converter- new radiator, fan, Alternator etc

- Replaced front end with king pin dana 60 open knuckle out of a 78-79 Ford- New power steering & power brakes on front - 78 Ford 3/4 Ton steering box (reman new)- new steering arms/sleeves, new front 3.54 gear sets- B&M Mega shifter - 3 speed manual- Relined gas tank
Body is in good condition though it does have some minor scratches and chips, and it's own old truck nuances and quirks. This truck has been a steady work horse and daily driver in both the city and on the farm and is ready to do your bidding, but it is not perfect. However it could be made perfect with a dedicated owner and a subscription from LMC Truck! A few notable things:
- some small rust spots, places that have gotten chipped- back door/handle got hit when I bought it and has minor damage. Still usable but is slightly dented and sticks.- right front body panel looks like it was repaired at some time, is now slightly noticable up close- Truck bed has a durable, heavy duty rubber liner, but with a few small spots that have torn- passenger door panel is worn and feels a little loose, both could be replaced- could use new rubber gaskets around doors- needs new antenna- batteries are still good but near end of lifespan- tires are in great shape, many miles left- comes with heavy duty multi ball hitch (not shown)
This is truly a unique truck, turning heads everywhere I go and drives and handles amazingly well. You will get many questions and high fives. I hope it finds a new home and owner who appreciates it as much as I have and continues to maintain and improve it.
