- One Family Owned Since New, Total Restoration, Mint Condition -
1974 Ford F350 1-ton dump truck in Bright Red with a black & red interior. One family owned since new (father, now son owned), totally cost-no-object restored, with only 1800 miles since completion. Literally in brand new condition and perfect for landscapers or professional gardeners who need a dump small enough to get into driveways and yards but large enough to do meaningful work with its dump bed and 4000+ pounds of payload. The truck looks like brand new; fancy enough to service upscale customers.
The engine is a 1970 460 4-barrel totally rebuilt to stock specs with hardened valve seats, new 10:1 pistons, new rods, a polished crankshaft, new camshaft, and all new bearings. Producing 365 horsepower and a massive 500 lb.ft. of torque, outperforms new diesels. Runs perfectly on pump gas and there are no mechanical issues; no smoke, no leaks, no noises. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts perfectly and the 4.10 rearend allows reasonable highway cruising with a full load and a trailer pulled behind on either the 10,000 pound Class III or the pintel hitches. Brand new clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing, and flywheel. Power steering and power disc brakes for safe driving.
Fully restored interior in mint condition. The red & black seat looks like new and there is no wear on the floor mat or the factory steering wheel. Tilt steering column and factory AM/FM/Cassette stereo. All gauges and lights work properly and there is no wear on any of the controls. Very nice interior.
Perfect body with no dents, no dings, no waves. No rust and never damaged, the underside is as clean as the top. The bed is also excellent and is from Heil Truck Beds. The hydraulic system has been totally rebuilt and the bed dumps and returns quickly & smoothly. An auxillary air system for inflating tires has been added using an a/c compressor driven by the engine as a pump. Perfect acrylic urethane paint in the original Bright Red and done to better than factory standards with no nicks and no chips. Brand new OEM front grille and headlight bezels. Brand new dual side mirrors and brand new door handles. Excellent running boards and side tool boxes. Excellent glass and all new weatherstripping and window whiskers. Dual rear wheels with simulators and over 50% tread remaining on all six radial tires.
Totally restored 1800 miles ago at a cost exceeding $15,000 in parts alone and used since only by the original owner's son for his personal landscaping needs. Drives perfectly without any rattles or squeaks and looks brand new. Exceptionally nice dump truck.
