How about a classic truck for towing your classic car? The Pick of the Day is an apparently well-maintained 25-year-old, 1-ton F-Series pickup that is ready to muscle you, your people and your classic vehicle to the race track or car show venue.
“Built Ford Tough,” as they say, definitely appears to apply to this 1995 Ford F-350 Dually. Even with more than a quarter-million miles on the odometer (264,000, to be exact) the truck is in “excellent mechanical condition with receipts for all work,” according to the private seller in Mesa, Arizona, advertising the Ford on ClassicCars.com.
The seller has owned the truck since it had 79,000 miles on it, the ad says. We aren’t sure what the Ford was used to haul or tow, but from the photos with the ad, the truck was well-cared-for throughout ownership, and the miles are said to be mostly from highway use.
The Ford F-Series is now in its 14th generation, having been launched more than 70 years ago. The 9th generation (1992 through 1997) has now become a classic, and its clean body style has aged well.
Even though the Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since 1981, many of them were purchased as sheer workhorses, and thus were run into the ground over the years and gone for good. This example exemplifies pride in ownership, as it looks nice cosmetically for its age and miles.
Ford’s Power Stroke diesel engine is a notoriously robust 16-valve V8, launching for the 1994 model year as a 7.3-liter from the Navistar T444E family. The motor on today’s feature truck is said to have been paired with a Banks Power Pack system. Banks’ products, which include tuning components, are engineered to deliver improved miles per gallon along with increased power.
Power Stroke motors went on to be used in a variety of other applications, including the E-series lineup of vans and the mighty Excursion SUV.
The seller notes that the truck needs work to the passenger rear fender, but a new fender is included. The rest of the Ford’s exterior is in nice condition, as is the interior.
The possibilities are vast as to how this truck could come in handy. Whether it involves hauling a trailer queen to a concours d’ elegance or picking up a non-running project car, this F-350 is ready for the job. The seller is asking $9,400 or best offer.
