Truck-or-Treat: 1975 Ford F-250

One last quick feature before I take the kids out trick-and-treating, and this is one I wouldn't mind finding in my candy bucket. The sixth generation Ford F-series was produced from 1973 through 1979 on a chassis that was first released in 1965.  It was during this generation that the F-series took the prize as the best-selling truck in America, a title it has maintained ever since.  Find this 1975 Ford F-250 here on eBay bidding for $23,000 reserve-not-met with a few hours to go, located in West Jordan, UT.

The Ford F-series isn't a bad piece of truck as it comes from the factory, but somewhere over the years this one has been given a serious injection of testosterone.  Gone is the original gasoline inline-6 or V8 and in its place is a Cummins 12-Valve turbocharged diesel inline-6 mated to an automatic transmission. 

Stay safe and enjoy your candy!


  1. Sold for 25 clams large. No way this horror rod is mejor then El Donkerado featured earlier. Not with all that junk hanging low (diffs n shafts) a la truck nuts.

  2. I actually looked through the pictures and it is a pretty neat truck. I can't believe it sold for 24k unfinished like that.
