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!  tips@dailyturismo.com

  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.
