This 1965 Ford F-250 is Truly a Man’s Best Friend

Every shop, every farm, every garage has a best friend, and not necessarily a human. Something that can simultaneously run daily errands, pick up or deliver stuff, and serve as a rolling billboard for a business. Why purchase a boring newer truck with no character, when you can do it in style with a vintage Ford?

Using something like, say, this 1965 F-250. A true barn find and survivor, this old Ford simply exudes charm. Everything is original and in pretty darn good condition considering its age, from the paint, body, to the interior, motor and of course, the drivetrain.

There’s no rust or rot to be found, and even the interior is in nice original condition. The 352 V8 has been rebuilt, meaning that you won’t have to worry about reliability on your daily runs. In a world of rotisserie restorations, it’s certainly nice to see an original condition truck every now and then.

It’s like they say – a car is only original once. Since patina and wear is cool these days, you won’t have to feel ashamed at the truck’s minor imperfections, either. Consider them to be badges of honor, and simply enjoy the cool friend this truck will become.
