On offer here is a 460ci gas engined F-250 Ford truck of 1997 vintage, showing a Carfax certified, original 85,200 miles from new. Always a California truck, the first owner enjoyed it for two years and 17,000 miles before being acquired by the 2nd owner.
In the very stylish black livery with grey interior, the absolutely rust-free truck is offered in excellent condition throughout. Accident-free, the arrow-straight panels fit perfectly, and the perfectly original paint has great lustre and shine. Chromework is all original and also in excellent condition. Tires are brand new with less than 100 miles on them.
The interior is exquisite with no tears, cracks or issues with any seat surface, carpet or panels, including a perfect dash. The glass is all perfect. The truck features a camper shell with three opening lockable windows, a bedliner and a full-length rack.
The truck was stored for the last decade, liberated earlier this year and was subject to a full re-commissioning, including an overhaul of the fuel injection system, flushing both tanks in the process. A new battery and overhaul of the spark system followed with a flush of the fluids. Brakes and suspension were checked out, a new set of tires were installed, oil was changed and an overhaul of the AC system results in ice-cold air conditioning. Headlights were misted so were replaced. Everything works perfectly including electric windows, lights and original stereo system.
The truck drives perfectly. It starts immediately, idles perfectly smoothly and pulls with great, responsive power. It shifts perfectly through the auto ‘box. Brakes and suspension are excellent with no squeaks or other erroneous noises. The truck is accompanied by original books in the original Ford pouch.
Please note: for California buyers, the registration was put in to non-op status, so there are no past fees due.
