Plain White Wrapper – 1967 Ford F250 Camper Special

March 1, 2016

With all the cars you’ve been finding on RustyButTrusty, you’ve surely been thinking, “I’d love to drag some of these oxidized heaps restoration opportunities home with me, but how? Old cars with seized brakes are so heavy, and Earl’s Towing won’t drag home something without plates on it.” Well fortunately, for the cost of merely a few tows, you can have your own rig, starting with the kind of expression of American freedom of choice we can only be brave enough to exercise in these times of $30/barrel oil – a pickup with a big block V8 engine. However, plenty of these in the affordable end of the market, as with any popular car of a certain age, have been subjected to abuse, corrosion, and modifications of questionable taste. So it’s a pleasure to find a clean, cosmetically stock version of the heavier-duty F250, like this 1967 Ford F250 Camper Special for sale for $1850 in Washougal, WA.

Truck-Off – 1968 International 1200 vs. 1969 Ford F250

May 26, 2015

As mentioned in previous posts, there’s something really appealing about the simplicity and singularity of purpose of a classic American pickup. Before they were trying to be a luxury car, family sedan, commuter vehicle, off-roader and stuff hauler all in one, they were a vehicle with a job to do. Around the time our two feature trucks were built is when perceptions about their purpose started to change, so let’s take a look (and you can probably guess the manufacturer’s philosophy based on which one survived!). Check out this 1968 International 1200 Deluxe for sale for $2600 in Lewis County, WA.

January 9, 2014

Want something that grows more hair on your chest than an Austin Healey? An off-roader that eats tinny little RAV4s and CR-Vs for lunch? Something that has not only a tool chest, crash bars, and a heavy metal bumper, but also a hoist to heave things into the bed until you start working on those puny little arms of yours? Well look no further than this 1964 Ford F250 4×4, for sale for $2500 in Bayfield, CO.
