Don’t let this deal pass you by.
Now this is something to write home about. If you’ve been in the market for a pickup, then this 1985 Ford F-250 Lariat XLT Extended Cab might be just what you need. Up for sale by Drager’s Classic Cars, this original beauty runs and drives well with 97,767 miles on the dash. Don’t let that discourage you, though, as this truck has a great many years ahead of it. The asking price is just $3,995, which comes out to an estimated monthly payment of just $59.81! That’s merely pocket change.
This 1985 F-250 is an extended cab variant with rear jump seats. If you are in the market for a truck to haul a trailer or even put a camper on, then this is the vehicle for you. The original vehicle ad says that the truck has an electrical plug that is mounted in the bed with all the mounting points needed for tying a camper down. So you can rest assured that this bad boy can get the job done, since it already had a camper on it at one time.
This F-250 Lariat XLT features power steering, brakes, windows, and door locks with an electric brake controller and rear-sliding window. It also has dual gas tanks. The interior is equipped with an aftermarket AM/FM radio with a CD-player so you can enjoy all your favorite jams on every trip. This bad boy is powered by a very durable big-block 460 7.5-liter V8 engine, which delivers 245 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.
The previous owners just installed two new tires on the front and had an alignment done, which is verifiable via receipt images. They also serviced the brakes. New front rotors and calipers were also just replaced, in addition to wheel bearings and seals.
For a truck that is nearly 35 years old, it does contain a few small dents on the box itself. However, the truck is very straight and runs smoothly. The original tan-on-brown paint job looks good with some small rock chips. You may notice some light paint damage on the front of the truck box as a result of the camper chains that were once on the truck. All in all, this 1985 Ford F-250 is a clean and drives nice, and should last a very long time with the right owner.
