1988 Ford F350 Car Hauler For Sale 39K Miles


Recommended Posts

In 1994 I bought this 1988 F350 custom with 34,000 miles on the odometer. It was a fleet owned stake-bed truck that got downsized out of commission. I had the stake bed removed and the truck painted with epoxy primer and acrylic urethane, had 4 new top of the line Michelin Tires LTX-MS All Season Radials put on valued at $519.00, got new shocks and a tune-up. Next, it went to Hodges Custom Haulers in Padukah, Kentucky for the custom 19' bed and to have the chassis stretched to a 202 inch wheelbase. I had it made this size so it would fit in my garage, which makes the truck a little over 28 feet long. I used the truck for hauling a race car to our local dragstrip about 40 miles away about once a month or so over the years, which accounts for it having such low mileage. In the time I’ve owned the truck, it has never seen the rain and has been stored in a heated garage. It has a fuel-injected 351 with an automatic transmission, PS, PB, Pioneer AM/FM Cassette stereo, air conditioning (just switched to R134), dual gas tanks, sliding back window, billet aluminum grill, contoured bug guard, lighted running boards, stainless steel wheel simulators, stainless steel wheel well moulding on all four corners. The Hodges bed was custom-made to my order and is 19 feet long has raised sides and clipped corners (angled), and the ramps are 16" wide and are self storing and theft proof. There are four locking storage cabinets built into the bed of the truck.

It has a custom roll bar, a built in 5,000 Pound winch, adjustable wheel stops (3 locations for hauling different length cars, 6 D rings for cars and extra 6 D rings for cargo, 8 loading lights, a trailer hitch, winch cable roller in mid-deck. I just put a new battery in it this year and it was taken in on October 28, 1998 for the ignition switch recall. Air conditioning was recharged and converted July, 2002.

As you can see from the pictures it shows virtually no signs of wear for a utility truck. It has its usually quirks for a long-term stored vehicle (long Cleveland Winters). It tends to drip oil and transmission fluid the first couple of road trips but then everything swells up in the spring.

This vehicle is emissions exempt in the state of Ohio due to its weight. It comes from a non-smoking household.

I'm asking $19,300.00.
