This 1978 Cummins Powered F-250 is for Attention Seekers Only

By -


Are you the life of the party or the type who wants everyone to pay attention when you walk in the room? Well, we’ve found the perfect truck for you; introverts needn’t apply.  No, this ridiculous 1978 F-250, which has basically been reconfigured into a mini big rig, is guaranteed to turn every head you come across.

When we say 1978, what we mean is the body and interior and little else.  This rig sits up high on a 2.5 ton Freightliner chassis with the drivetrain to match.  Providing power is a 5.9 liter, 24 valve Cummins diesel, backed up by a FS5205A manual transmission.  Talk about a statement making machine.


The marriage between the big rig underpinnings and drivetrain and the classic body style of the ’78 F-150 actually works, and it doesn’t look too much like a Frankentruck experiment gone wrong.  Sure to be the hit of any car show or cruise in, everyone will want to take a ride in this.

The overall condition of the truck isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t need to be.  If you’ve ever dreamed of having a big rig, this would be the place to start.  Or if you’re just a perpetual attention seeker.  Either way, the asking price of $19,900 is your ticket to admission for this one of a kind ride.
