The 1975 Ford F-250 Tow Truck is a genuine workman 4x4 that has a ton of vintage flair. So look over every inch, because this is a distinct and well-documented classic that's ready to do everything, including steal attention away from vehicles that cost a ton more.
This truck was made to get noticed. The red is a bold application, and the white roof combines with the white wheels for a little two-tone flair. Plus, the silver full-length pinstriping really shows off how good this .....
truck looks, which is a small miracle, because this F-250 was built for service. It's a genuine tow vehicle that was professionally converted by Canterfield Equipment in Michigan. That arm and winch setup is useful for everything from farm equipment to vehicle removal. There are even dual spot lights and a rotating hazard light on the back for pulling roadside assistance duty during the night. There's a heavy-duty bumper in back to keep anything from damaging the truck. And up front that extra tough bumper looks like it could push a school bus. Plus, there's not only a diamond-plate locking storage box on top of the bed, but also this was built with Ford's optional locking storage built right into the side of the bed (a rare feature that truck people love to point out.) But really, this one isn't all about pulling genuine truck duty anymore. It looks so good that you know it's the right one to put your business logo on the side to have something people will remember no matter if it's parked outside the office or leading the local parade.
Inside, this one really has that ideal feeling of a truck built for getting down to work. You get a robust bench seat, durable flooring, and large trailering mirrors so you can see what you're towing. This even has the sliding rear glass. That way you can open the side vent windows and get a cool breeze running though the cab in the old-school way.
Under the hood is Ford's hardy FE-based 360 cubic-inch V8. This is believed to be the original motor to the truck, and it has a great look of originality, right down to the decals and the jack mounted on the fender wall. While this keeps the vintage personality of the rest of the pickup, you will also spot some good investments to keep it a workhorse, like the newer radiator. It has been treated with good respect, and that feeling gets reinforced every time you feel this V8 fire up eagerly. This one runs strong and shifts smooth with the four-speed manual transmission. First gear has the ideal low speed, high torque granny gear that works with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case to give you a great go-anywhere pickup. And power steering and power brakes help you enjoy this classic truck with ease.
The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, and owner's manual. So if you want a unique and memorable 4x4, don't miss this classic tow truck. Call today!!!
