Score a 1999 Ford F-250 with V10 Power in the Marketplace
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.
When the OP first listed his Super Duty for sale in the marketplace, he provided the following information.
1999 F250 superduty v10 4×4. One owner. New brakes, u joints, ball joints and fluids. Truck is in excellent shape for its age. Has 4.30 gears. I have towed 11k pounds 8 or 9 times with no problems. Truck has a gooseneck, double den touch screen radio and back up camera. Very dependable. I would drive this truck to Alaska. $8200 obo.
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.
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.
If you want a V10-powered F-250 from the first generation of the Super Duty, you aren’t going to find one cleaner than the one listed for sale in the FTE Marketplace right now.
