1974 Ford F250 Crew Cab

Don’t buy a brodozer; buy this 1974 F250 Crew Cab

This “dent side” Ford F250 is great. It is a 1974 Ford F250 Crew Cab with two bench seats and room for six. The listing for this truck is on eBay and the current bid is already over $20,000.

The engine is the original Ford 390 cubic inch V8, but it does appear to have some more modern parts added to it. I have driven a stock 390 from the same era. They sound good but do not compare to modern V8 performance. This truck won’t win any races, but based on looks alone, you will have already won.

The interior has been redone, but it looks really good. The rear bench seat is in as good of condition as the front. The exterior two-tone paint looks good and the color on the wheels adds to the overall appearance. The “pizza cutter” tires also help maintain that 70s vibe.

It really is a great looking truck. Ford truck prices from this era are starting to go up. For the same reason that Jeff originally purchased Hoontruck, so many people already have their Chevy C10s. Fords are on the rise.

Crew Cabs are rare from this era as well. Generally, these models were sold as forestry service trucks, but on rare occasions, they were sold to private customers.

I do not have the funds to bid on this truck. It is a damn good looking rig. Someone is driving away with a winner.

    Very nice, but I’m not a big fan of 4 door trucks. This past spring, All American Classics in WA had this one for under $3,500. Rough around the edges, but look at those slotted mags!

    I briefly considered how I might get it back to Ohio and then thought better of it. I’ve regretted it ever since. I think it ended up in the middle east.

    On a scale from 1-10, how important is it to sport a mustache and a cowboy hat when driving these?

      Gun rack is also critical.

    I had my fun with F-250s back in the late ’90s. My English girlf wanted to see more of the USA so we railed this one from San Francisco to Burning Man to Las Vegas,Grand Canyon, Texas, New Orleans, Chattanooga, D.C., NYC, Boston and back to SF. It’s a 1970 F-250 Sport Custom Camper Special.
    Well, I did have to replace the FE block 360 before we did that, it had no oil pressure when I got it (didn’t stop us going to Big Sur & back) but I got a good used one for $400. Also I had already replaced just about everything else under the hood, except the radiator. I replaced that when I got back. I never did do any body work on it, the bailing wire on the left headlight stayed true the whole way.


    It’s too bad I didn’t put $1000 away every year since then, I might be able to afford this egregious example of the breed.

      On the other hand, if you’d spent $1000 every year on your own truck, it would look even better than the crew cab one…

    These look even cooler with a stepside, like this one at the Collier Memorial logging museum. Personally I don’t like the jacked up look and my ideal of utilitarian crew cabs is an early 80’s Chevy or GMC in Forest Service green
