1999 Ford F-250 V10 Driver Side

Early V10-powered Super Duty trucks is incredibly clean inside and out for 20 years and 142,000 miles.

When Ford Motor Company officially introduced the Super Duty as its own model, independent of the F-150 with unique styling from the half-ton trucks, the new F-250 was available with a new V10 engine. The 6.8-liter Triton V10 was offered from the launch of the Super Duty in 1999 through the 2016 model year, being discontinued when the fourth generation Ford F-250 and F-350 arrived for 2017.

This big gasoline engine was ideal for those Super Duty owners who wanted more power and capabilities than you got with the smaller gasoline engines, while avoiding the added cost and weight of the PowerStroke diesel engines. If you needed or wanted a little more power than the standard engine in your F-250 or F-350 in 1999 through 2016, the V10 was perfect.

Sadly, the engine is gone, but this remarkably clean 1999 F-250 listed in the FTE Marketplace by “eddienelson” is in near-showroom quality and it packs the big V10.

The Introduction

When the OP first listed his Super Duty for sale in the marketplace, he provided the following information.

He also included a handful of pictures, showing the truck inside and out. We don’t get to see the V10 engine, but we do see an interior with light-colored cloth that appears to be in like-new condition. Also, with the mention of those key maintenance items, the odds are good that this truck has been well-taken care of over the years.

Incredibly Clean

This 1999 Ford F-250 is unbelievably clean inside and out, which is unusual for a heavy duty truck of this age with nearly 150,000 miles on the odometer. It is one thing to see a compact car or a sports car that has an easy life looking this good after 20 years, but to find a 1999 F-250 in this shape is rare.

Also, in addition to keeping the paint looking great, the interior looks like it is new. For a 20-year-old heavy duty truck, it is impressive that the light cloth has remained so clean during 142,000 miles of driving and with the seller mentioning some heavy towing work, we know that this Super Duty has been used as a truck over the years.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
