48K Original Miles: 1979 Ford F-250 Camper Special

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

You always like to see low mileage vehicles, but you especially like to see them when the seller is confident the mileage claim is accurate. That appears to be the case with this gorgeous 1970 Ford F-250 Camper Special which has been listed here on eBay with just 48,531 original miles. The truck is equipped with a 460 V8 and lots of factory options, and bids are just over $9,000 at the moment with no reserve.

No reserve! That’s a rarity these days for what looks like a desirable specimen. The Camper Special was offered with some equipment upgrades that would make the truck ready for towing a trailer or having a camper shell stuffed into the bed, but you obviously didn’t have to use it for that purpose. Dual gas tanks and spring blocks were some of the more standard features you would see added to a Camper Special, and I believe heavy-duty cooling was another factory upgrade.

Camper Special equipment aside, this F-250 is in stunning condition, inside and out. Hard to believe, but the seller claims this is the original interior. The bench seat looks like it has never been sat in, and the carpets show virtually no soiling or staining. Even with the low mileage, it’s rather incredible to see a truck cabin survive to such a high degree. The dash has no signs of cracks and the wood trim on the glove box looks like new.

The details on the dash provide more evidence as to how clean this truck is, with a factory radio and no signs of blemishes on the instrument binnacle. The seller notes the Camper Special is equipped with a factory radio, high output heater, and dealer-added cruise control, which is not working. The paint is said to be original with the exception of the hood, and with so much originality on display, it’s hard to believe that bidding isn’t higher at the moment.

    I would take this over the green one posted earlier. Remove the camper top and just gorgeous.

    I just realized it says 79 on the heading but 70 in the article. Just a typo.

    That’s about a 8-10 mpg vehicle
