This 1967 Ford F-250 Features Light Modifications And A Healthy Patina

Sponsored

When modifying an older vehicle, there’s always a risk of taking things too far. To be fair, some outlandish designs end up looking quite good when done right. But oftentimes owners will add unnecessary enhancements that don’t offer much justification for altering the look of a classic car or truck. Fortunately, this 1967 Ford F-250 currently up for sale features exactly the right amount of extras to make it appealing. And despite some flaws, makes a good case for itself as a blank canvas for any type of future project.

This 1967 Ford F-250 is far from perfect, but it’s decent enough that it stands a good chance of earning the respect of enthusiasts for its status as a survivor. There are several reasons why this truck is pretty cool.

For starters, the Holly Green paint sports a healthy patina that’s faded, but not too faded.

That look is enhanced by the lowered suspension, which was brought down two inches from its factory height. The 17-inch Cragar alloy wheels tie the whole look together, and paired with all the cosmetic scars on the body, make the 1967 Ford F-250 look like an aging fighter that’s still got some spring in its step.

Reinforcing that notion is the 352 cubic-inch V8 that’s under the hood. This was a workhorse engine for the F-series, putting out 208 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. According to the ad, the engine is the original powerplant. Based on the pictures, it looks like it’s in decent shape. A four-speed manual transmission puts the power to the rear wheels.

Inside, the 1967 Ford F-250 features two crucial upgrades. There’s a comfy bench seat that likely makes driving far more comfortable than the original thrones. Plus, there’s a cool aftermarket steering wheel installed on the column, which pairs oddly well with the Cragar wheels to make the truck a bit more gritty.

At 53 years old and with just over 81,000 miles, it’s not unreasonable for a truck like this to have some issues. This one has a decent amount of rust underneath, and while it doesn’t appear terminal, it will probably require some reconditioning at some point in the future.

That said, this is a truck that still has a lot of life left in it, even if it doesn’t get fully restored… which it shouldn’t, given its battered-but-tough appearance. At $12,900, it could be a decent candidate for a some type of cool restomod though.

    Pssst, that’s an F100 not an F250. F250s had eight bolt wheels!!

      Well the plate on the cowl and door jamb say F250 but the chassis is definitely F100 with the 9″ rear and 5 lugs instead of a Dana 60 with 8. So this truck is made up of parts that didn’t leave the factory together.

      Of course after 50+ years a lot of things get swapped to keep a truck on the road so who knows how, when or why these parts were united.

        With all this mixing and matching I would hardly think it is worth nearly $13K. Certainly not my $.

          I think a zero needs to be taken off that price.

          I see a $800 truck with $200 worth of wheels and $300 worth of disc brake spindles.

      I don’t know of a 352 cid Ford engine either… somebody’s got some ‘splaining to do….

        Oh, absolutely a 352. 332, 352, 390, 406, 427 all came from the same basic block layout.

        The FE 352 has the same 4.0 x 3.5 dimensions of the 351 W which gives a displacement of 351.57 cu inches but apparently they decided to round down for the small block to prevent confusion. Of course they then decided to use that same bore and stroke yet again giving us the 351C and 351M, only they never used the W, C and M. So much for avoiding confusion.

    I have a 67 f250 with a 352 in it. Dana 60 rear end and it 8 lug. It has a fmx automatic transmission. It has about the same miles on it. 83,000 miles. I would add a picture but don’t see where to do it. But my 352 runs great. I would trade it for anything.

    In 1960 Ford made a 360 HP 352 extremely rare. Solid lifters, short cast iron headers, almn intake with Holley 4 bbl. Only saw 2 both in Starliners came with 3 speed overdrive on the tree it could move that big car right along. That was the start that only got better every year.

    My dad had a ’65 F100 with a 352, as did his ’62 Galaxie 500. With the 5 bolt axels, this is likely an F100. Not I think by ’67, the 352 was replaced by a 360. I have a ’68 F250 Ranger Camper Special w 390, C6, PS, factory power front disc brakes and factory AC nd lot of patina.

    I have a 67 F100 with the 352 4 speed granny gear transmission. The 352 is a truck engine with a different stroke crankshaft than the 390 engine.

    Ford originally made the 352 as a high performance engine for the Thunderbirds in the late ’50’s.

    Definitely not a 3/4 ton. I had a 67 with 352 auto. Armstrong power steering. Water on the road was never a problem for it. I could see someone changing hood and doors way before axles and spindles. I’d give 1000.00 for it but asinine to pay 13k. I’ve a friend in Oregon with about 100 of the 67 thru 72 body style. He’s got every make and model. His nicest one isn’t worth 10k
