1974 Ford F-250 Camper Special Is a Golden Find
A true grandpa truck, this Dentside Ford F-250 has a fresh list of upgrades and awaits a new owner.
It’s a story most all of us are familiar with. Man buys new truck, then proceeds to keep it forever. He takes good care of it, but uses it like a truck was supposed to be used like. Many years later, that man passes on and his family takes possession of grandpa’s old truck. And that familiar tale is exactly the story behind this 1974 Ford F-250 Camper Special, which recently popped up in the Ford Truck Enthusiasts Marketplace.
The seller states that his wife’s grandfather ordered the truck new back in the early ’70s. After the couple took possession of the pickup, they proceeded to do a little work to it. First on the list was a brand new 390 with headers, dual exhaust, an Edelbrock intake, and a Holley carb. A C6, fortified with a mild shift kit and Gear Vendor overdrive, handles the shifts with no trouble. It also sends power back to a Power Lok rear diff, which puts the extra ponies down to the ground.
A freshly recovered bench seat makes the interior look like new, while the factory air conditioning keeps occupants nice and frosty. On the outside, only newer wheels and tires and a tonneau cover deviate from the stock Ford F-250 appearance.
With less than 5k miles on the mods, grandpa’s Ford F-250 has plenty of life left in it. Now it just needs a new owner to drive and enjoy it. You can find this clean Dentside, along with tons of other cool pickups and parts, over in the new FTE Marketplace!
