One More Try: F-250 Camper Special Seeks Good Home
Owned by seller’s grandfather since 1974, F-250 Camper Special’s golden brown body is straight with no rust.
Our main mission in presenting the finds we come across in the Ford Truck Enthusiasts Marketplace is to show off all of the cool and amazing projects, parts, and memorabilia available from our wonderful members. If someone ends up buying what we shine the spotlight upon, all the better.
Sometimes, though, it doesn’t hurt to try again. We came across a find in the Marketplace that turned out to be familiar to us, but still too amazing to gloss over.
1974 Ford F250 Camper Special
Originally featured in our post of five such finds from the Marketplace, this 1974 Ford F250 Camper Special was recently put back up for sale by its current owner, forum member oregon87.
“Truly grandpa’s truck as he ordered in new in 1974 and has been in the family ever since,” the seller said, who also mentioned our last shout-out to the truck in this new listing. “While it was used to haul wood in the 70s and 80s, the body doesn’t show it as it as incredibly straight with no rust. Dings and scratches of course, but that doesn’t stop admirers from complimenting it regularly.”
Under the F-250’s brown hood is a brand new 390 V8 with less than 8,000 miles, equipped with dual exhaust, an Edelbrock four-barrel manifold, and a Holley carb. The 390 is backed by a brand new C6 three-speed auto with overdrive, feeding the power to the Powerloc rear.
The F-250’s cab includes a recently recovered bench seat, upgraded stereo system, functioning HVAC, and its original carpeting. The back has a new tonneau cover, and the corners are wearing a new set of wheels and tires.
The seller says he’s “a bit on the fence about selling the truck as it is truly in incredible shape for its age.” Whoever takes it home will definitely have one cool F-250, though.
