1995 Ford F350 Dually
1995 Ford F350 Dually
In the early days of automobile manufacturing, vehicles were sold as a chassis only, and third parties added bodies on top. In 1913, the Galion Allsteel Body Company, an early developer of the pickup and dump truck, built and installed hauling boxes on slightly modified Ford Model T chassis, and from 1917 on, the Model TT. Seeking part of this market share, Dodge introduced a 3/4-ton pickup with cab and body constructed entirely of wood in 1924. The term pick up coming from the actual process of the build where the owner would literally have the box installed then go pick it up...hence pickup truck.
For consignment, a large and in charge dually long bed 4 door crew cabbed F350 pickup truck. Complete with bed cover visors, bug shield and cab top running lights, you can actually fell like you are rolling in a big rig.
Medium Lapis Blue and Oxford White compete for space on the long steel paneled protruding rear fenders crew cab truck. Panels are straight and the blue and white come to an agreement with the blue up top and on the rockers and the white in the middle. A white Lear bed cover with sliding windows and a rear uplift gate, this coordinates with the trucks rear tailgate and forms a watertight cocoon for the bed. Bed is blue and shows use which is typically what one would do with a truck. 16-inch 8 wheel nut chrome dishes are upfront, and on the rear are the dual reverse dish shiny 8 wheel nut dual accommodating wheels. These are framed above by a large fender bump out which also serves to keep the bed at normal dimension whilst covering the outboard wheels. Some areas where clear coat is wearing off are seen, a few dents and dings, and the cab roof has surface rust.
With all 4 doors swung open we see faded blue broad cloth seats framed by blue crushed velour bolsters. The original dash, and door panels show some wear and staining but are in overall good condition, as is blue carpet. Rear seats which match the front in a bench for are like new and show slight wear. Headliner is nice and tight, and all interior functions working properly.
A big 460ci V8 with electronic fuel injection and a 4-speed automatic have been installed. These appear to be original in original condition showing some patina and corrosion, and overall dusty. A 4.10 rear is noted but only in the rear. She's a 2wd boys!
Slight surface rust but nothing remarkable. Mechanically and structurally sound radius arm, coil spring front suspension. and leaf spring rear, this truck has been used but cared for on the maintenance front.
Climbing in you are immediately struck with the height you are riding at, and it gives you a sense of invincibility. This truck started right up and has good power for lots of hauling. Seats are comfortable, and there is certainly plenty of room for the passengers. It rides like truck but then again what did I expect?
A life of use reflected in the surfaces fit and finish of a dually, crew cab, nearly the largest pickup one could have. Bathed in nice two-tone paint, a Lear bed cover, and in fair to good condition overall. East bound and down…
