This 1979 F-250 is Begging to Get Dirty!

By -


At first glance, this 1979 F-250 is quite a looker. It looks great with shiny black paint and tidy trim, and sitting up high on 39.5 x 13.50 x 16 Super Swamper tires. But, as the owner admits, it’s really a “five footer,” the kind of truck that isn’t perfect but makes for a great driver.


If you ask me, that’s perfect, because you’re going to want to drive a truck like this. With that massive rubber and a 6-inch lift, it would be a shame if you didn’t traverse off the road every now and then.  Especially when power comes in spades thanks to a rebuilt Ford 400 outfitted with headers and dual-exhaust.

It’s also fairly well optioned, with an automatic transmission, factory air-conditioning, power steering, and power brakes. The old F-250 is also reportedly mostly rust free, with only a little bit of rot on the gas tank skid plate.


It’s what you would call a “driver” condition vehicle.  Which is perfect, because it would be a shame not to take this ’79 F-250 out and enjoy it, whether that be on paved surfaces or off of them. A truck like this is just begging to get dirty, and you won’t feel guilty for slinging a little mud!
