Two '77 4x4 Wreckers (SOLD)

Year: 1977
Make: Ford
Model: F-250
Price: $900
Mileage: 150000
Color: Red
Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing
Location (State): MA
Transmission: Manual
Drivetrain: 4WD & AWD
Color: Red
Engine: 351m

I have a couple of '77 4x4 tow trucks to sell. I bought them a couple years ago from the same tow company but just haven't had the time or $$ to do much with them.
One (the truck in my avatar pic) is a F250 highboy converted to dually axles with a 351m (Edelbrock intake & carb), 4 spd, divorced np205.
The other is a Dodge W300, factory dually with (I think) D60 front axle and either a D60 or D70 rear axle, 318 engine, 4 spd, np203.

They are both fairly rough in & out. Both run and drive but haven't been on-road in years. They will need metal work to be road legal (at least here in Taxachusetts anyway ) Mostly floors & rockers need attention. The Dodge has a couple small spots of rot on the frame just above the rear axle. Cab and hood are rusty on Ford. Fenders are okay.

Like I said they both run, I rebuilt both carbs and did full tune-ups on both of them last fall but they sat all winter and are a little grumpy now but just need to get run some, plus some fresh gas would really help. (both are in-cab tanks by the way).

Both are old-school sling tow beds, the Ford's is a Holmes bed, not sure about Dodge. Both have PTO-driven winches, I've only been able to verify that the Dodge's winch works, the Ford's PTO control cable melted to exhaust so I can't engage.

Anyway, that's all I can think of, let me know if you have any Questions. These trucks were used to haul wrecks out of swamps and demo derbies so they're plenty tough. I've been unemployed going on a year in May and I really need the cash, so I'd like to see around $900 each but I'm open to offers (especially if you want them both).

Clean Massachusetts titles in-hand!!! Let me know if you have any questions or would like to take a look. Thanks for looking!!

lol, yeah, I know. If I were in the south or midwest I probably wouldn't have much trouble, but no one wants to come all the way up here.

I'm actually was more interested in the F250 dually than the Dodge. But, it is a PITA to do the logistics of a 1500 mile trip with multiple tolls & horrible gas mileage on the way back to Indiana.
