Cool two-tone, a Mustang V8, nice upgrades, and the overall extra duty of a long bed pickup make this restored 1972 Ford F-250 Custom a terrific classic truck.
Looking at the door tag, you'll see this truck is wearing correct code-M1 Calypso Coral over Wimbledon White. Of course, the shining condition tells us there has been a nice recent investment in erasing decades of going to work. In fact, this truck was restored in 2017 and there's only been around 8,000 miles put on it since then. That's why it all looks so good. There was even nice detail work with new grille inserts, window rubber, front glass, and much more. Plus, there are some well-coordinated upgrades, like the few additional custom Wimbledon White inserts on top of the orange. The polished wheels look great against the mirror-like chrome bumpers. But more than just look nice, you love this because of the added utility. The F-250 came standard with the longer wheelbase and larger eight-foot long bed, and the liner paint in the trunk bed keeps this looker protected. So when it's time to get to work, this truck is up for doing more.
Inside, the orange and white two-tone continues, and now it's joined by a durable black. In fact, everything you want is black, like the seat inserts, door panels, carpeting, dash pad, and steering wheel. So you can use this as a daily driver and many of the prime spots won't show the dirt. And just like the exterior, you're going to see a solid investment here to keep it all feeling fresh. In fact, because this is meant to be useful and enjoyable you also have some nice upgrades, like proper three-point seatbelts, a column-mounted tachometer, and an upgraded RetroSound AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth. But even with all these upgrades, you're still going to get the classic truck feeling. It comes from opening the vent windows and sliding the rear glass to get that ideal old-school pickup breeze flowing through the cab.
Under the hood is a nice upgrade. This has a 302 cubic-inch V8 borrowed from a younger Mustang. This powerhouse was given a mild rebuild during the restoration. It has the right components like a four-barrel carburetor and new radiator. As you look over the whole engine bay, you'll see a fresh presentation right down to the mounts. That's because they took their time getting this truck right. So now it's ready for enjoying. That's also why you have great features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
