’71 F-350 Ramp Truck + ’68 Mustang GT 390 = Perfection
This sweet heavy-duty truck & Mustang combo could be a Ford lover’s ultimate restoration project. But where do you start?
Few things in life are more rewarding than seeing a truck or car project come to life through hard work, ingenuity, and many, many trips to the parts store. Some folks simply don’t understand why anyone would want to go through such hassle, and that’s okay. That means more parts availability for the recreational restorers!
If you like to tinker with cars and trucks, buckle up, because the pair you’re about to see on this video courtesy of Classic Ride Society is an absolute stunner. Not only are they both icons, but they’re both Ford icons and they make a perfect pair.
What you see here is a 1971 Ford F-350 heavy-duty ramp truck, complete with a grille guard, and tool boxes underneath the ramp construction. Today, a build like this would cost well over $100,000, so we can imagine it was also quite pricey back then. In addition, it’s a crew cab! It doesn’t get rarer than that.
On top of the F-350 is another Blue Oval beauty, a 1968 Mustang GT 390. As the person doing the filming walks around the duo, we can see that the pony car has a “For Sale” sign on the window, letting us know they’re asking $20,000 and that the title is on hand. Pause at the right moment, and you’ll be able to appreciate some of the Mustang’s specs on sheet adhered to the driver’s window.
The video doesn’t make it clear if the Ford F-350 is also available for purchase, but after all, this took place at the 2017 Southwest Swap Meet in Decatur, Texas, so we’re sure everything has a price. And we mean, everything.
