|Welcome to my 1968 Ford F-250
|Here she is, my HUGE 1968 Ford F-250 crew cab pickup. This truck is 20 feet long, and weighs over 6000 pounds (that's 3 tons; an elephant weighs about 4 tons)
I don't like white for the color, so I am working to change that. The original paint is a horrid green. Well, it was the 60s!
This side view shows the 4 doors and gives a better idea of the length.
The original front bumper was chrome, not gray paint.
|This rear view shows the towing receiver and ball. It is rated to 8000 lbs, and that is for a trailer resting on the hitch! With a gooseneck trailer (rests on axle, not the rear), this truck could ideally tow 14,000 lbs.|
|There's plenty of passenger space, like an SUV, but with all the advantages of a truck bed.
Those seat covers have got to go! How about captain's chairs for the front?
|This white interior was well painted, but I don't like the color. So, with lots of work, it will change.
Also, that factory steering wheel needs to be replaced. Notice the A/C unit under the dash? It works!
This truck is also a manual shift... but not for long.
|This is the truck in January, 1998.
It burned and leaked oil, but had a surprisingly well maintained interior.
The body is pretty straight, and there is no frame damage.
Now, it's time to go to work!
