1979 Ford F250 4×4 with Ford dealer installed A/C. One owner until two years ago. This gentleman is still alive and can verify as well as all the written documents provided. He wanted one just like the brochure photo. This truck has been in the high desert atmosphere of Santa Fe since new (after being purchased in Michigan! He moved immediately to Santa Fe long before a Michigan winter). So he got the 351 with the four speed manual and 4:11 rear end. Odd so heavy duty a truck would be a garaged (original dash pad) pet with detailed records from day one. Even has gas mileage records (8.25 mpg)!
Two years ago a high end body shop owner purchased the truck and spent heavily on it. Everything was rebuilt or examined. This was a cost no object love affair. The no hit, no rust ever, body was lovingly and expensively repainted with the best products as this was his pet. The engine was overhauled by a local pro who put a 400 crank in the 351, bored it out slightly, and did the usual porting and polishing hot rod tricks. It is a very docile and easy to manage drivetrain with plenty of power. No need for a 460 with the build in this one. The clutch was replaced and the rest of the driveline taken apart and examined. Of course it was fine and sealed back up. No Leaks. All 4×4 gears and levers work as new. No issues starting, stopping, or idling, this is an incredibly sorted truck. A/C and heat work as well as all gauges factory and after market. Both factory gas gauges work and so does the switching unit. Wipers wipe and washer sprays correctly. All interior and exterior light work correctly and there are no rattles inside or out. Even the sound system is damn good! I have never heard a better aftermarket setup and it is all hidden except the head unit. The system also has bluetooth/microphone and an iPhone dock. The dash was not modified to install this head unit, hence a factory Philco am radio can be reinstalled. While I am on that topic, the original painted steel wheels are included. They have been primered but not painted. I can have them powder coated white if you desire. They look just like the factory brochure photos. There are some more photos on my website at jim hailey classic cars dot and a com.
I have been on eBay for 14 years and sold many collector vehicles to many people across the globe. I try to deal with only the best since this is a hobby. Please come visit this Ford or have it inspected. It actually looks better in person than it does in pictures.
