This 1978 Ford F250 is a Tennessee truck that was stored indoors and was a barn find. It was a great find as the truck was well-preserved. The last owner had the truck selectively restored 3-4 years ago and it was done very well. This was a 2 Owner truck when it was found and the truck was always well cared for. We do have the original Dealer Invoice and sales Sheet which is pretty cool. The body on this truck is really nice and very straight. It was repainted in Light Chamois (Tan) and Coral. The original colors were Light Chamois and Medium Copper. The underside of this truck is also very clean and solid. The underside was power washed and painted black. We found no evidence of rust or rust repair. All of the chrome and stainless look to be original and are in great condition. It is clear this truck was stored indoors and taken care of. The interior is also very very nice. It looks to be all original with the exception of the seat being recovered. When we went through with our basic inspection we found everything to be working.

Other than paint and the seat, the only other thing to be addressed was having the 400M V8 engine rebuilt. This was done at 115,460 miles and there are roughly 25,000 miles on the rebuild. The engine is believed to be the original to the truck and it runs excellent!! We did not get the receipts, but we do have a journal showing mileage when rebuilt along with entries detailing fill ups, oil changes, etc. The last owner was very detailed. Transmission is a NP535 4 Speed Manual that shifts nice. Rear Axle is a Dana 60 with 4.11 Gears and it is a Limited Slip Rear End. Front Axle is a Dana 44 with 4.11 Gears. Mechanically this is a very stock truck that runs and drives excellent!!
