Stunning 1985 Ford F-250 Is a Low Mileage Beauty

1985 Ford F-250

After living its entire life in a garage, this 24k mile Bullnose looks like it just emerged from an ’80s time capsule.

There once was a time when square body trucks like this 1985 Ford F-250 ruled the roads. Today, modern haulers have taken over, and many vintage rides lie in waste after decades of hard work. But there are a few true survivors out there, trucks that somehow escaped a life of labor. Trucks that still look essentially new, with less miles on the odometer than most vehicles 20 years newer. Like this incredible 1985 Ford F-250 we spotted on Craigslist.

With a mere 24,100 miles on the clock and a life of garage living, this beauty looks as well preserved as any Bullnose F-Series we’ve ever seen. The original black paint shines like new, as does the chrome. Loads of add-ons might be called tacky by some, but we’re digging the period correct look. And you have to admit, the “Fordasaurus” front visor is pretty darn hilarious.

This 1985 Ford F-250 is a rather rare configuration as well. The SuperCab is loaded with XLT Lariat trim, four-wheel drive, dual gas tanks, and even an 8-foot bed. Niceties include cushy captain’s chairs up front, power everything, cruise control, and at tilt steering wheel. Power comes from a four-barrel 351, which is backed up by an automatic transmission. It’s pretty much everything you could possibly want from a Ford truck of this vintage.

And while we’ve seen some questionable “low mileage” trucks popping up lately, there’s nothing here to suggest the odometer is incorrect. Everything is simply immaculate, from the plush interior to the shiny exterior. This ’80s relic is just about as nice as they come, whether you like the “tacky” accessories or not. But don’t expect to score a bargain on these types of rides anymore. In fact, the asking price for this stunning pickup is a cool $18,500!
