1973 Ford F-250 Ranger XLT Description

1973 Ford F-250 Ranger XLT 4X4. High Boy. 102K original miles (Rebuilt at 96K). I looked for over 5 years for just the right F-250 before I purchased this one. I had big plans for restoring this truck, but priorities change over time. This was the top of the line F-250 in 1973. Additionally, it has a Ramsey PTO winch (8,000 lbs) and Air Conditioning (needs work, but complete). I'm including dealer shop manuals, and much rare original documentation. Truck was repainted (cheaply) many years ago, and it is wearing thin in places. This truck looks really nice from 10 feet, but it needs paint. I will describe condition to the best of my abilities. You can email or call me at averyrich30@hotmail.com or (509) 985-7120. If you are looking for an awesome old F-250 to restore, this is as good as it gets. I have owned this truck for 5 years. Buyer to make shipping arrangements or pick-up locally. Seeing the truck in person before bidding is always best, if possible. I need $1000 deposit within 48 hours of end of auction via PayPal. The remainder shall be paid via bank to bank transfer, cash, or certified check. Sold as-is.
