1975 F-250 is Stunning, But is It Worth the Steep Price?

Let’s face it – buying a classic, restored Ford truck ain’t cheap.  But how much money is too much?  With restoration costs soaring up into the $30K+ range, has the value of these classics reached the point where it’s worth paying close to that for one?

This 1975 F-250 is currently testing that theory, with a sales price that exceeds 80% of the restoration cost.  It sure looks the part as a simply gorgeous piece that anyone would be proud to own and drive. Mostly everything is new, and a host of upgrades are present as well.

The 390 big block has been gone through and prettied up with stainless and chrome bits, the two tone blue and white paint is flawless, and the interior is beautifully done.  Upgrades like a Vintage Air setup, aftermarket stereo, and Dynaliner sound deadening are nice touches.

A set of nice chrome wheels and 34″ tires sit at the corners, with Rancho shocks all around.  A frame bushing kit upgrades the ride quality, and a bunch other options like a block heater, adjustable alternator, and dual batteries add to the convenience factor.

It’s a top notch truck, for sure, but is it worth the $29K asking price?  If you want what is essentially a new 1975 F-250 with modern conveniences, probably.  The market doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon, and neither does the price ceiling for nicely done classic trucks.
