    I've known this truck almost all my life - longer than I've known my brother! Needless to say, it's like family to me...if I could have it sit with us every night at the dinner table, I would. There's lots of fond memories from times spent in this vehicle. Heck, I remember being in the back seat when my dad drove it off the dealer lot in Morristown, NJ when new. It's a custom order 1980 F250 4WD extended cab, 8' long bed, 3:55 axle, Ranger XLT Trailer Special. It was supposed to be two-toned caramel and white exterior with a caramel interior, but apparently in 1980 caramel meant orange for exterior colors, so this beast looks like a creamsicle. I doubt you'll ever see another one like it - I've never come across another truck like it with just the Ranger XLT Trailer Special package. We were probably one of the few families to use a HD truck as the family vehicle while growing up; while this truck served as a daily driver for my parents going to work, it was also our go-to vehicle for vacations. It spent many summers towing cars from the east coast to the west coast to help pay for the family vacations that we enjoyed. It also was there through thick and thin as we moved from NJ to AZ and eventually back to NJ. Originally powered by a 351M, it was given a heart transplant at 165k via a 460 out of a '70 MKIII Lincoln. I believe the C6 was rebuilt around 199k. The truck now has just over 215,000 miles and is unfortunately quickly heading to truck heaven due to rust cancer. While I don't have the time nor the heart to part it out, it would be a great organ donor for someone else's project. When I last parked it just a few years back, it still fired up and moved under its own power. Perhaps there's someone on this forum that may be interested in "The Truck". Please feel free to contact me for more information. Thanks, Scott
