EXCEPTIONAL F250 4WD WITH 429 V8!! EXTRA CLEAN WESTERN TRUCK!!
This 1978 Ford F250 4x4 Pickup is a true gem of a truck. Extra Clean Western Truck that was re-powered with a 429 V8 by the 2nd Owner. 2 Owner Truck!! The 2nd owner purchased from the original owner in the mid 80's when the truck had around 60,000 miles on it. The new owner than put a new 429 in the truck because the 400 V8 that was in it was tired and he wanted more power. He used this truck only as an occasional use truck and claims the 89,xxx miles are original. It sure looks and drives like that is the case.
The body on this truck is super straight and he did have it repainted in it's original Silver and Red colors. It still looks fantastic!! It has a spray in bed-liner to protect the bed and a high end custom tool box as well. Interior is pretty original and in beautiful condition with the exception of newer carpet and the seat was recovered. Everything is working on this truck including the 3 Gas Tanks and Gas gauges which is pretty rare. Even the Braden Winch ($8,000 New) works.
This truck runs and drives excellent!! The 429 has plenty of power, holds great oil pressure, and runs cool. It has an Aluminum Intake, Electronic Ignition, Tuned Holley Carb, and Dual Exhaust. The NP435 Manual Transmission shifts great and it has the NP205 Transfer Case. Axles are both Dana 60's with 4.10 Gears. It also came with the towing package and there is a 12,000 pound winch on the front that was put on in the early 80's along with the custom front bumper. It is very hard to find a truck with this much eye appeal in this condition with all of the right stuff on it. It will not last.
