1969 F250 Highboy Rat/Shop Truck For Trade
I have for TRADE, a 1969 F250 Highboy. I drove it to about 75 miles to the Pigeon Forge Rod Run and back recently (maybe 150 miles or so round trip and cruising) and it did great. Only problem I had is the clutch I believe is on its way out from the heavy traffic. But driving around town on the way home its not given any issue. This has been kind of a rat rod/shop truck project. Just had vinyl put on the doors Friday in honor of my grandfather
Truck has a 300 I6, 3 speed manual with dual shifters in the floor, 4X4 with Dana 60 and Dana 44. Gets looks everytime I get it out. It is a long bed and step side. Fuel cell in the bed, but I also have an in cab tank for it. Newly installed bench seat and seat belts. Has new battery, new valve cover gasket, new oil pan gasket, fresh gaskets and fluids in the differentials, new tail lights. No idea of the actual miles as the gauge cluster is unhooked. Not a perfect truck by any means (it does have some rust, some holes, a little leaky), but is certainly great restoration material. Cab has been swapped for a F100 cab and is titled as an F100, but it's on a highboy frame and driveline with a divorced transfer case. Title is clean and in hand. It's a quirky, cool old truck and needs some work, but it's definitely not in bad shape.
I'm not really looking to sell. I'm really only looking to trade. I'm interested in full sized Bronco's and Blazer's, Jeep CJ's, YJ's and Wranglers, V8 Mustangs, Camaro's, Firebird's and Trans Am's of all years as long as they're running. Convertible or T Tops a plus. Manual transmissions a big plus.
I'm certainly willing to drive it to meet, but keep in mind it's a 45 year old truck and I'm not exactly comfortable driving it several hundred miles away from home considering I've not had it very long. I'm located about 1 hour North of Knoxville TN.
