1972 F250 Crew Cab 2WD
Super Hard To Find Crew Cab
Excellent Running 390 CID V8
4 Speed Manual Transmission
These Crew-Cabs have been on a meteoric rise in the last few years. With a multitude of engine swaps varying between diesel & gas and now electric it seems there is no end the the mods except for the supply of trucks to do them on. Finding them untouched and driveable is nearly unicorn territory. This truck provides a rare opportunity to experience an original and forge your own path.
Obviously you aren't going to win any beauty contests with the old gal...she's been there, seen it and done it. However, what you don't see are any obvious signs of a major collision or rust so the frame should be a solid foundation. The body while appearing accident free was not completely spared. There is rust in most of the typical places, nothing fatal but you had better be handy with a MIG. The current rust stains come off pretty easily with some soapy water and some fine scotch-brite if you were inclined. You could rock this one as-is cosmetically for years sporting some real deal patina though leaving you time to plan an attack & enjoy some guilt free cruising.
Inside this one is still quite stock. The front seat upholstery is in need of replacement but the indian blanket look is classic & fits right in nicely. For stock stuff, the rear seat is actually quite nice as is the headliner.
Mechanically, this one feels sound. It had been moth-balled for a few years but still runs nicely. The old FE leaves a couple of drips so plan on parking pan for the garage. The 4-speed transmission shifts nicely and the clutch engages well. The steering & brakes all work properly but before dedicating this one back to the roads we would recommend a full inspection and servicing just to be safe.
The body areas needing repair are the drip molding on the driver's front corner, front cab mounts, cowl and driver's door. Obviously there are some other spots but these are the significant repairs. The rear doors are still solid and save-able as is the passenger front, the driver's door would be better off replaced.
There are a ton of pics, scroll through them. Please note, we left the truck as found, fresh off the farm. With some minor cleaning, a wire brush, scrubbing and touch ups it could all look dramatically better.
