1985 F-250 Bullnose Rocks a Hefty Price Tag and 10k Original Miles
With Bullnose Ford pickups slowly but surely climbing in value, is it the right time to buy a pristine sample?
The Ford F-Series is easily the most beloved (and most successful) truck in the history of pickups. Amongst passionate truck enthusiasts, the most unloved are those produced in the early to mid-’80s. Interestingly enough, it’s those trucks that have skyrocketed in value in recent years.
Affectionately known as the “Bullnose,” these trucks had a “face” only a mother could love. Or at least that’s what people (not us) say! Here at Ford Truck Enthusiasts, we have a deep love for the most unloved trucks, which is why we nearly lost it when we came across this gorgeous 1985 F-250 Bullnose.
At first glance, it’s quite obvious that this might be the nicest 1985 F-250 you’ve ever laid your eyes on. But don’t freak out yet, because it gets even better. According to the ad, this bad boy has only seen 10,297 miles in its entire life. The truck was purchased new and lived in a climate-controlled environment for 27 years. Whether it makes any sense to us or not, the original owner drove it sparingly (obviously) and only on nice days.
Sometime thereafter, a four-inch Rough Country lift was installed, and a set of beefy 315/75R16 BF Goodrich All-Terrains replaced the original tires and were mounted on aluminum wheels. Everything else is pure 1985, except for a repainted hood. The lightly used 351/C6 combo is untouched, and the truck sports desirable options like power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning.
Sounds great, right? Despite the Bullnose being in the early stages of appreciation (unlike the Bronco), pricing on pristine samples are still pretty darn high. The price of admission for this gorgeous truck is $54,900, which makes this the most expensive 1985 F-250 we’ve ever seen.
