A lifted 1978 Ford F-250 Custom 4X4 is already an impressive vintage pickup to take you beyond where the pavement ends. But when this exceptionally low mileage truck has also received amazing paint, a comfy A/C interior, and a 500+ horsepower big block, you know this one never has to leave Main Street to be impressive.

Upscale doesn't just describe the lift on this truck, but also its total presentation. It starts with a professional respray of the bright blue metallic paint. It has such a terrific presence under our showroom lights, so just imagine how much you'll love it in the weekend sunshine. And that pristine white strip in the body line creates a terrific two-tone. Complementing the paint is all the brightwork. You can tell there was a solid investment getting the bumpers, grille, and all the intricate premium trim to have a mirror-like presence. But this is no trailer queen... it hauls the trailers. This F-250 is ready for work with the liner paint in the longer bed, trailer hitch, trailer mirrors, and those Mickey Thompson 17-inch beadlock wheels on the tall 4x4 suspension.

Open the door, and you'll see some obvious signs of an investment in keeping this truck comfortable. The bench seat looks new, and it has been covered in an exterior-matching blue for a thoughtful touch. The same goes for the door panels and the dash for a terrific coordinating total package. You've got a ton of great factory features like the AM/FM stereo and classic steering wheel. And there are all the right upgrades, too, like the AutoMeter Sport Comp tach that goes so well with the stick shift. Best of all, there's factory air conditioning to keep you cool in all situations. But even with this, we know you really will just love opening up the side vent windows and sliding the rear glass so the breeze can flow through the cab. Plus, the open windows also really let you hear this pickup roar.

Whether you want this for work or play (or both), you'll love that the full drivetrain was part of the restoration project. Not only does that mean all the shiny components look great in the painted engine bay (let's face it, you're going to want to show off every inch of this pickup), but also there's been component upgrades for added performance and reliability. The big 460 cubic-inch V8 has performance goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and headers. The full package produces over 500 horsepower, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! So it reliably fires right up like a good pickup should, but it also has an intimidating rumble that's second to none. And you'll love having full control over it all with the four-speed manual transmission. And the investment in this Ford goes well beyond the motor. Take some time with the undercarriage photos. Not only do they show you how clean this total build is, but also you'll spot terrific upgrades like the dual shocks up front and the polished four-link rear. Plus, with the two-speed transfer case, Super Swamper tires, and a Dana 60 rear end, this is the classic 4x4 that never runs out of ability. And the power steering and front disc brakes are always welcomed no matter if you are on the street or trail.

Complete with build receipts, restoration photos, and owner's manual, this is the 4x4 with all the right upgrades to be a great all-around driver as well as a useful pickup. This complete build is like your best friend who's ready and able for whatever adventure you want to go on today. So don't miss out, call now!!!
