Would depend on the GVW. Get a picture of the sticker in the door jamb. I think the options for the 250 were 8500, or over 8600. I've got the 86+, I think my curb weight is around 2ton.

Swiss cheese.

I doubt it is over 5,000. (Single cab, not extended?)

If it is an '81 and the engine is original it should be an M, not a W. Weighs a bit more.

It really depends on the options. I had a regular cab long bed, 4x4, no AC, no headliner, no nothing. it scaled at 4600 lbs with half a tank of gas and me.

same scale a year later, SuperCab shortbed but xlt lariat, AC, carpet tipped at 5800.

weight changes fast.

Any standard 7k flatbed car hauler, like mine, would be fine.

I won't put my SuperDuty on it as the SD weighs 8200.

My 82 F250 4X4 (reg cab) weighs 5,500 lbs (bed empty) with me in it. The GVWR is 6,800 LBS on this truck. The weight is according the scale at the local landfill.

Like Stang said. A good 7K car hauler will do it.

Make sure you have something heavy duty enough to pull it.

Other options include:

Rent a rig (truck with car hauler trl) U-haul or Hertz, etc.
Check on Web for auto transport haulers.(Hundreds to choose from)

Sometimes, this is cheaper in the long run because drivers coming through can pick it up and drop off to you on their way.

You will just have to figure out the most cost effective scenario.

Hope this helps. Good Luck. Trav

Well would a U-haul trailer do it? and would my F150 pull it?

I was recently at a stone yard and they weighed my '82 351 f250 2wd std cab. The scale showed almost exactly 4000 lbs.
