1978 F250 4x4 with Very rare "Lariat"  Trim

This is a very rare and desirable 100% RUSTFREE 1978 F250 4x4.  It has most every option offered in 1978, Including the top-of-the-line "Lariat" trim package, and the heavy duty "Trailering Special" towing package.  1978 was the first year for the Lariat package, and production was very limited.  The lariat package gave you all the pretty stuff, and the Trailering special gave you the heavy duty parts.  The Trailering package included heavier springs, rear anti-sway bar, much larger brakes, extra and larger fluid coolers, etc.  Other factory options include: rebuilt 400 V8, C6 Automatic, A/C, PS, PDB, Tilt, Cruise, Tool Box, Factory Tie Down Hooks, etc.  The A/C gets cool but needs a pound or so of Freon.  The body is 100% rustfree, and features all of the original medium blue metallic paint.   The body is very straight, with the exception of the bed rails.  The are dented, but repairable.  It does have a 3" body lift on the truck, that gives the truck the look of a "Highboy".  However, if you prefer the stock look it is real easy to remove.  This 4x4 has a nice sounding high end Sony CD player, a class III hitch, and a flip up goose neck ball.  Other than the few mentioned items this truck is original.  The suspension is tight, the brakes stop straight, the exhaust is sound, and the 4x4 system works fine.  The tires are nice 33X12.5X16.5 BFG's.  The interior is clean bur needs new carpet.

This would be a great choice for a full restoration, or just a nice driver as is.
