Vintique Motors is thrilled to present this 1972 Ford F-250 Ranger Highboy 4×4 4-Speed!
Per the original window sticker and the Marti Report, this 1972 F-250 is 1 of 4 finished in Deluxe Tutone Mallard Green and Seapine Green over a green vinyl and cloth bench seat and Mallard Green interior and was ordered through the Seattle, WA district and sold new at Wendle Ford in Spokane, WA. This truck would spend nearly its entire existence in Washington before moving to Florida for a brief period followed by our acquisition and shipping to our showroom here in Michigan.
Originally equipped with a 360ci V8 rated at 196hp, the original owner swapped it out for a built 390ci V8 and is mated to a NP-435 4-speed manual transmission. Outback is a Dana 60 axle housing a 4.10 gear with a 4×4 system with manual locking front hubs. Being a upscale Ranger trim level F-250, this truck is equipped with power 4-wheel drum brakes with optional equipment consisting of ammeter and fuel pressure gauges, AM radio, roof cab lights, tinted glass, and sliding rear window.
Hailing from the PNW this is a rust-free survivor that has been maintained and refurbished as needed. Documentation shows the original owner had it fully repainted in 1986 and today it still shows in very good condition. A prior owner later installed a modern set of 16.5″ chrome 10-hole wheels which are currently mounted on BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires sized 33″x12.5″ as well as a shortened exhaust system dumping ahead of the rear axle.
Included with the sale is the original owner’s manual, original warranty and maintenance booklet, original warranty card, original window sticker, the original title application dated 7/24/1972, Washington registrations under original ownership from 1975, 1979, and 1981-1983, the Marti Report, and documentation pertaining to the engine swap and repainting in 1986. Do not miss this opportunity to acquire this wonderfully preserved highboy as they are becoming increasingly difficult to find.
