UPDATE 3/17/17 – James has lowered his asking price to $10,500!
FROM 2/13/17 – We’ve said it before, classic trucks are on the rise! Given how many were worked to death and left to rust away, it only makes sense that nice survivors are the ones to buy. And boy is reader James R’s 1968 Ford F-350 Flareside one nice survivor! And with just 31k original miles, this sweet rig is ready to make trips to the lumber yard and to car shows. He’s asking
$12,500 $10,500 and it can be found in Omaha, Nebraska. If interested, you can contact him using the form below.
From James – It’s equipped with a 360 ci V-8, 4 speed with 31,000 original miles. Have original split rim wheels with poverty caps, original bed slats, owners manual, build sheet and history from new. Honest old Nebraska truck that has spent its life on the farm.
It runs perfectly. Starts up immediately even in coldest weather, but it steers and brakes like an old truck. No power steering, no power brakes, no A/C. Radio delete. New water pump belts and hoses. Needs new tires.
Interior is almost perfect. All gauges work.
Rust free truck. Lots of scrapes, bumps & bruises from life on the farm,but nothing major. Original paint remains bright & glossy but some poor touch up on rear fenders and drivers door.
Outside of the touch up work done to the truck bed and a few scrapes, this looks like a really nice truck! I hope the mileage truly is just 31k and that James has all the documents to prove it. It sounds like he might, but I would be sure to check on that. With a little work, you could have this Exclusive looking like brand new inside and out. The question is, do you put it to work or do you only bring it out for nice days and to attend events? Personally, I’d be tempted to drive it as much as possible, but that’s just me!
