Gray F-250 Ready for a New Home and More Adventures

1969 Ford F-250

Old gray lady ’69 F-250 is in good condition with no rust, dailied by a law enforcement officer for a year prior to consignment.

We’ve said it before: There’s simply nothing like a classic Ford pickup or SUV. We do appreciate the technology and amenities modern trucks offer, but a classic truck will steal the spotlight wherever it goes, helped by the fact there are fewer such beauties around these days.

This gray beauty happens to be one of them. We spotted the 1969 Ford F-250 the other day while looking through Hemmings.

Recently put up for consignment at Laguna Classics & Automotive Art in Laguna Beach, California, the F-250 has nearly 21,000 miles on the 360 V8 and three-speed automatic. A good few of those miles were put on by a law enforcement officer, who drove the truck every day for the past year prior to consignment.

Per Laguna Classics, the F-250 has little rust and is in otherwise good condition, including a respray of its original paint. The truck also has its original black vinyl bench and faux wood/chrome trim, making for a cozy place at the start and end of the work day.

The bed, too, is in good shape, ready for camping gear, sheets of plywood, or whatever else can be thrown in it. And, of course, there’s plenty of chrome to go around, from the trim pieces to the American Racing wheels.

As Laguna Classics says, the F-250 is ready for adventure and/or daily use. With tons of aftermarket support, the old gray mare will keep running well into the 2060s.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
