How About a Mean & Green 1973 Ford F-250?

Mean

Take a look around the classic truck market today, and you’ll find a lot of well worn and used examples of Fords. What you don’t see is a whole lot of clean, lower mileage, heavier duty F-Series trucks out there.  All of which makes this 115,000 mile 1973 Ford F-250 a sight for sore eyes.

Mean

It certainly looks mean in a fresh green paint job. But that beauty is more than skin deep, as this F-250 has received a lot of fresh parts throughout to make it run and drive like it’s 1973 all over again. That includes the 460 under the hood, which features a Holley carb, Edelbrock intake, electronic ignition, and lots of dress up parts.

Mean

There are lots of new suspension parts as well, including fresh u-joints, and the addition of electric trailer brakes, and a 5th wheel setup make it ready to tow whatever you need or want to. The interior has received a complete refresh as well, with new carpet, Autometer gauges, and a custom seat cover.

Mean

If you’re the kind of person that likes to tow in style, this mean ’73 F-250 is certainly right up your alley. It looks just as good as it goes, and it’s bound to be a crowd pleaser at the local RV park.  The only downside is the potential for single digit gas mileage, but happiness rarely comes cheap!
