4610 Pet Lane
This 1973 Ford F-350 has a very distinct Super Camper Special style. And today this full package represents a cool V8 classic that never loses the ultra-capable utility that makes it a legend in the truck world.
The brown and white two-tone is the kind of color combo you expect in the 1970s, and so it gives this a nice vintage vibe. There\'s a hint of metallic in the paint, the body panels look good, the glass is clean, and you even have the full side trim of the premium Ranger XLT package. It looks attractive, but it does not ever approach anything that would be considered \"fancy\" because Super Camper Special hangs its hat on being a true workhorse. Ford pushed the rear axle to the back to elongate the wheelbase and make this a better riding machine for those wanting to install a slide-in camper. So not only is it useful, but it\'s also an instantly recognizable distinction for those of us who love trucks. They even had space to put the full-size spare under the special bed-side compartment. Even the truck\'s name is unique. The Camper Special was on Ford\'s books for many years before they created these extreme rear-wheel machines. So when they upgraded the wheelbase they also upgraded the name to a Super Camper Special. But the \"Super\" was dropped after a few years when the Super Cab came around. It\'s little details like this that remind you why we love unique trucks. Today this one continues to have the look of ability with the rear step bumper, towing mirrors, and a trailer hitch with trailer brake control. Plus the special bed looks excellent with its rugged yet clean liner paint. So you\'ll happily show off this special feature and also still let it help you with the chores.
The interior mixes classic style with useful upgrades. For example, pieces like the bench seat, carpeting, and dash pad have the classic brown style, but they have the clean feel of a newer investment. There are nice upgrades like an AM/FM digital tuner with cassette and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And the upgraded Grant GT steering wheel gives you an even more commanding driving position.
This was born with a 390 cubic-inch V8, and we believe it to still have this displacement under the hood today. But while this may look stock, if you dig deeper, you can see it now inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. And the full dual exhaust lets this exhale with a subtly sweet proper V8 tune. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission are features to make your tasks and journeys easier. And we bet you took notice of the HD-8-lug wheel setup done with modern alloys and new rear tires.
The sale comes complete with nice paperwork like a Marti Report, factory buildsheet, some original docs, and the maintenance records. This is the kind of classic that impresses with its enduring ability. And real truck people instantly recognize what makes it extra-special. So don\'t miss this F-350. Call today!!!
