Ford F250 Camper Special Pick Up,Original Unmolested.Superb Truck

1968 Ford F250 Camper Special Custom Cab in superb, original unmolested condition
The Ford F-Series pickup trucks remain one of the most iconic symbols of working America from 1948 to the present day. Driven by farmers & celebrities alike โ€“ Steve McQueen had a '68 just like this one โ€“ and everyone in-between.
This F250 is a Camper Special with a Custom Cab . Essentially it's a more luxurious iteration of the F250 for those who wanted to drop their demountable camper into the bed and head off into the country for a weekend. On the outside it has extra bright work and a two-tone colour scheme. and on the inside vinyl seats and rubber mats went in favour of plush brocade upholstery and loop pile carpeting.
Under the bonnet is the largest engine available in '68. the 390ci big block V8, coupled to a three-speed automatic transmission which has recently been rebuilt at a cost of ยฃ3,000. In addition. this truck has a factory auxiliary fuel tank, which when combined with the standard tank, gives this truck an incredible range.
Whilst most F-Series trucks of this era were worked to death early in their lives. and most that remain are in poor condition or far from original. this example has survived in quite extraordinary condition and remains completely standard and very original. Being used for hauling a camper body only has meant that the bed and tailgate are completely undamaged and free of any dents. Equally the bodywork is totally straight. repair. dent and filler free. Coming from dry California. there is no corrosion or previous repairs to the underside whatsoever.
Inside. the Ford is fabulous and extremely comfortable. The brocade fabric bench seat is in perfect condition and the carpets are new. The dashboard is in great shape and the heater and radio work perfectly.
Mechanically these trucks are very tough. The unstressed 6. 4-litre V8 runs sweetly and provides ample performance. The gearbox changes smoothly and the disc brakes are very effective and power assisted
I have new centre caps for the wheels to replace the pitted ones.
It's nicer to drive than a lot of modern trucks,great fun to just cruise around in but it could still work hard if you wanted it to.
What a perfect period tow vehicle!
We would happily take another classic in part exchange and can arrange delivery
