Not a Series Rover………………

Just a bit out of the Series Land Rover realm. 1996 Ford F350 XLT with a 460CI big block, C6 transmission and twin fuel tanks………which it needs. I really like these square bodied Fords.

This one came from a local collector that has a warehouse with everything from Mclarens and Lambos to stuff like this F350………..very eclectic taste, but all of the vehicles are nearly new. During a recent “thinning of the herd” this Ford came available, I didn’t really need it, but heard that a prospective buyer was going to turn it into a Vermont plow truck……. 9 1/2 foot plow and a sander in the back…….a certain slow death for an exceptional truck, so I stepped in and bought it.

Yes, that reads 9,581 miles…..this truck deserved to be saved from a life of slamming into snow banks and spreading salt. So, I plan to just clean what needs to be cleaned. The truck needs new tires due to age, I’ll service the brakes and hubs, basically give it a clean bill of health after having sat for most of it’s life, and hopefully find a new owner that will get some enjoyment from the truck without abusing it.
