This 1985 Ford F-250 Isn’t Perfect, But It’s Cheap

The Ford trucks of the early to mid-’80s aren’t exactly super popular like the classic F-100 trucks are. Trucks like this 1985 Ford F-250 extended cab are in the realm of cool but still usable daily and still very affordable. This 1985 Ford F-250 isn’t perfect, but considering the truck is 34 years old, it is in good condition and still runs strong according to the seller.

For much of the truck’s life, it cruised around with a camper in its bed. The damage the truck does have consists of scratches and dents from the chains that were attached to keep the camper in place when driving. It has power steering, power brakes, power windows, power door locks, electric trailer brake controller, and a rear sliding window. The bed of the 1985 Ford F-250 does have a spray-in bed liner.

Power for the truck comes from a Ford 460 cubic-inch V8 engine that was rated for 245 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque when new. The transmission is a Ford 3-speed. The truck also has a pair of new tires on the front, and the brakes are freshly serviced. That brake work included new front rotors and new calipers along with new wheel bearings and seals.

It appears that the truck has a tow hitch receiver in the back and it looks as if it is ready to get to work. There is an aftermarket CD player installed for tunes and an aftermarket temperature gauge. That might suggest the factory one doesn’t work. The truck does feature dual fuel tanks. The odometer shows 97,767 and judging for the condition of the truck those are accurate miles. The asking price is only $3,995, vastly cheaper than the slick 1964 Ford F-100 4×4 we talked about a while back.
