Classic Car Overview

1978 Ford F-250 Ranger XLT - Camper Special - one of Fords most popular trucks!
Rare Find! One-owner truck! Truly All Original with 14,000 ORIGINAL MILES! Thats less than 300 miles per year. Truck spent its entire life in the small town of Kamas, Utah and owners kept this ride in top shape!
The interior is all original and feels as new as the day it drove off the lot in 1978. Even smells new still! The original seat and fabric has no stains, with the cushion and springs feeling plush and comfy. All levers, dials, switches, buttons etc operate perfectly. It has the upgraded AC system which blows nice and cold. And original classic Radio tuner.
The Front Windshield is original too with Ford brand etching on it, and also flawless condition.
This is the Camper Special model and with that came the upgraded tow mirrors, stronger heavy duty rear suspension, larger rear axles with heftier differentials, and upgraded gigantic radiators. The F250 Camper Special is a rare find to say the least and is highly sought after.
Mechanically, this truck runs like it has 14,000 miles on it. Not much more to say. Starts up perfectly, sounds beautiful, and drives with power and precision as Ford made it to! It has the best engine option offered for the year - 460 cu in 7.5 L V8 with 239 horsepower. Transmission is the SelectShift Cruise-O-Matic automatic - as it was called.
Power Steering is smooth and Power brakes are strong and confident.
Original Paint is starting to get a bit of Patina in places and gives it that classic truck feel and touch. We are leaving it that way for the integrity of its originality. But a fresh paint job would make this shine like a perfectly fresh and new classic!
Tires and Wheels have been upgraded as seen in the pictures. 20 Chrome black rhino wheels with 275/65r20 open country tires.
Its a good look for the truck. But going back to 16 wheels would give this a more original look in the wheels department.
Rear bumper was replaced by a roll pan to give it a more sporty look. A classic HD chrome bumper can easily be added back.
Dual Gas tanks, Dual Batteries, Rear Sliding Window, Original Dealership Emblem on tailgate, Original 1978 Manual, and original temporary registration tag from 1978! Truly a classic and such an amazing find for someone who is looking for a fun classic. Keep it to show at car shows, or have as a reliable and ready to go as your daily driver. Youre not gonna find a more original beautiful Ford classic truck at this price.
