An awesome stance, cool two-tone, big V8 power, and the right subtle upgrades both for flair and to get the job done - that's what you get with this 1972 Ford F-250 Ranger 4x4 Highboy.
Ford truck people know what a Highboy means for pickups. It's not a hot rod for the road, but it is a start for the work-ready crowd. They must be from the heart of the fifth or sixth generation, a true F-250, and have a divorced transfer case (it required the higher ""Highboy"" .....
suspension.) The trim tag tells us all of that is true! The trim tag also reveals that the two-tone Mallard Green and Sea Pine Green are the factory-correct color combo. It has been refreshed to have a terrific gloss. This luster helps highlight the straightness of the body panels, and so does the premium Ranger full-length trim. In fact, everything from the shine of the front bumper to the way the doors close with confidence makes this truck impressive. But the style also has substance. After all, we know you love the look of polished 8-lug HD wheels. There are other work-ready details, like the proper trailer hitch with electric hookup, cab roof clearance lights, long western tow mirrors, and a long bed with diamond plate protection that's absolutely ready to get the job done.
The interior gets the classic truck look right with its sea of green. They have updated pieces like the door panels and comfy velour seat, but it really loves just giving you a vintage feeling. That's why the dome light greets you when the door opens and the Philco AM radio is still cranking out tunes. There's even a CB radio. So it's easy to imagine sliding the rear glass and opening up the vent windows to enjoy the breeze the old-school way. But in a truck built for function, and so you'll certainly appreciate the upgraded tach on the steering column.
Whether you want this for work or play (or both), you'll love the extra power this one puts down. The motor was upgraded to Ford's strong 390 cubic-inch V8. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. And it exhales with a sweet rumble as headers feed the dual exhaust. That means you really get the right kind of power and sound you expect from a truck like this. It earns its Highboy nickname for the tall 4x4 stance that came directly from the factory on these extra-tough F-250s. The four-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control, especially when you want to start off with some nice low-end torque. And the power brakes and BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires make this a solid diver.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and owner's manual packet. This is a truck that's presented as a true classic that also makes sure you know it has true ability. So if you've been looking for a distinctive F-250 Highboy, call today!
