Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

If you love classic trucks, then this 1978 Ford F-250 4x4 Camper Special will get you excited. It has a ton of terrific vintage details to keep it a cool survivor-style machine. But they also made the right worthwhile upgrades to keep it a great driver/worker. After all, isnt that what owning a vintage HD 4x4 is all about? Looking at the door tag, youll see this truck is wearing correct light blue paint. In fact, this is a single-stage application that looks to be factory original. It has earned its age with pride, but theres also a glossiness and completeness. So the total impression is quite awesome on an F-250. It also helps that this is a premium XLT Ranger. So you get the full-length side trim that helps show off the strangest of this trucks long body. And while youll love the vintage presentation, we also know this one is attractive for its ability. The F-250 came standard with the longer wheelbase and larger bed, so when its time to get to work, this truck is up for doing more. Wide tow mirrors, a proper tow hitch with wiring plug, upgraded 8-lug wheels, and the beefier component of the Camper Special give this one an undeniable workman appeal. The Ranger XLT also means a premium interior. They took the time to give you all the right vintage elements here, and at the same time, there are upgrades that make this truck easier for everyday life. For example, you get plenty of the classic wood-like trim, but theres also a later model Ford bench seat. It gives you better bolstering and a comfy cloth upholstery, and best of all, theres a fold-down center armrest for a more individualized comfort. There are more nice factory features, like cruise control, a sliding rear window, and factory air conditioning (will need a servicing/belt before blowing cold again.) These are joined by handy modern conveniences like cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, the addition of a tach and temperature gauge are great for when this pickup is getting down to work. Weve already hinted that this Ford was built to take on the big jobs, and now look under the hood for more proof. Thats the big blue ovals 400 cubic-inch V8. This motor is believed to be original to the truck, and youll love showing off all the original-style details (especially the under-hood tool box!) This also has the right upgrades, like a newer radiator and a four-barrel carburetor. It keeps this pickup running strong for the long haul. You even have dual fuel tanks! The stout C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front make for a great anytime driver. And the two-speed 4x4 transfer case means this Camper Special can get deep into nature, too. This is the outstanding vintage 4x4 that has more ability than even some brand new pickups. So if you love a terrific classic truck, you know you dont want to let this one slip away. Call now!
