1978 F150 4x4 "Camper Special"

1978 F150 4x4 long bed.  This one is 99.9% rustfree from California.  It has a strong smooth 460 engine.  Other options include: C6 automatic, power steering, power disc brakes, factory tie down hooks, dual fuel tanks, etc.  This F150 has the "Camper Special" towing and hauling package that features, the big "Desert Cooler" radiator, extra fluid coolers, front and rear anti-sway bars, etc.  It also has  the high pinion Dana 44 front axle, the bullet proof NP205 transfer case, and 9 inch rear axle.  I call it 99.99% Rustfree because it has some pinholes in the passengers floor.  The floor is still solid.  Other than that this truck is totally rustfree.

This was a one family owned 4x4.  The guy I got it from said that his dad bought it brand new with the 460 in it.  Per the VIN it was built with the 351, so the dealer must have installed the 460 when the truck was brand new. 

The odometer reads 08,803, so it's probably 108k which is still low for it's age.  The exhaust is sound.  The brakes stop nice.  The suspension is tight.

The paint is mostly original.  Those of you who watch the website close know that I'm struggling to find 70's Fords.  This is a nice solid turn key driver.  Survivors like this are all but gone.
