This old F-250 sure looks pretty, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t ready to conquer whatever mud you throw at it.

Blame it on Bigfoot, but there’s no shortage of lifted, big-tired ’70s Ford trucks out there. But most of these gargantuan creations live their life covered in mud. That certainly isn’t the case with this gorgeous ’78 Ford F-250 that we spotted over at Streetside Classics, however. While it’s certainly capable of conquering muddy trails, this old Dentside is currently winning us over with its undeniable good looks.

The seller notes that they believe the paint is original, which would really be saying something given its condition. And while neither it nor the brightwork is anything near perfect, it’s nice enough to leave alone, at least. So the previous owner did just that. Instead, they spent their money where it counts – underneath all that pristine bodywork.

Skyjacker shocks, Mickey Thompson wheels, and Ground Hawg tires take full advantage of the extra clearance afforded by a generous suspension lift. The Ford F-250 already came equipped with power steering, front disc brakes, and a C6 from the factory. So the previous owner turned his attention to the engine next.
