1971 Ford F-250 Camper Special Description

Very clean and sorted rig, just beautiful looking nice daily driver. Drives out extremely well, and rides so smooth. Has one small rust spot on the inside of one door and a small soft spot in the passenger floor by under the seat, but the body and frame are straight and solid, no holes or rust anywhere else on the truck. One of the straightest and most rust free Camper Specials I have ever seen in a gorgeous light mint green and white two tone color.Please carefully view all photos and video below as they highlight and show all of the vehicle functions and imperfections in great detail.

It's not perfect, but a very, very solid truck that looks amazing, drives extremely well, and always turns heads.


The speedometer does not work. (Most likely just needs a new cable)

The exterior was repainted factory colors at one point in its life (early 90s probably?), but it is in fantastic condition and shows beautifully. The interior appears to have the original paint still.

Truck comes with two sets of keys for the ignition and door locks (keyed the same). There is no key for the tool box in the bed.

Also comes with a nice, straight chrome step bumper for the rear (not installed). I was going to put a roll pan on.

Located in Coeur d`Alene, ID. Clear Idaho title in hand and ready to go.
