$100.00 Gem

Well it's not pretty but it runs like a top and the price was cheap, really cheap. 1985 F250 4wd. It sports many holes where holes should not be. Purring under the hood is a high mileage 6.9 mated to an auto trans. A/C blows warm (which is ok cause it's winter soon). Pulled a couple fenders and a door so the rust will be lessened some, a couple inside visors, dash pad.

The reason for the purchase of this honey is to pack around the sleds. My deck is not really shortbox friendly.

So it is here I unveil the ??????? (wife has not named it yet).

Can you say "winter beater"? Good find, all you need is snow now.

Such is life. Just passing through.

cool score!

looks kind of rough for a BC truck, must have been an eastern import.
a lot of interchange parts on that right up to 97. 6.9 was a stone with the C6 trans, drove an 87once with a 5spd ZF once and it worked well.

good old winter beater

Well it's insured now. Still runs too. Had to replace the heater core though.
