Todays Nice Price or Crack Pipe F350 has a Trump 2016 license plate on its front bumper. It is about the most stereotypically old school all-American thing you could buy, but will its price eventually also trump all?
Do you remember back when you were a kid, your mom would always ask if you had washed your hands before dinner? Yes, you in fact had glanced at the bathroom tap on your way to the table so you assured her that your hands were whistle clean. She invariably would call you on the veracity of that assurance, and upon inspection of your foul mitts would send you back for an some actual germ warfare using running water and perhaps even soap.
I bring this up simply to point out that not everyones concept of clean is the same. Thats an important consideration in light of yesterdays 1981 VW Rabbit Pickup. It was claimed by its seller to be the cleanest in the Northeast, and while we dont really have a baseline against which to compare that assertion, that Caddy was sufficiently jacked up in a number or waysmissing interior trim, wonky front fender, etc.to make it seem totally specious.
In the end, its cleanliness level couldnt support its $6,999 asking price, and it fell in an overwhelming 88-percent Crack Pipe loss.
And now I think we should wash our hands of the whole matter.
Have you ever needed to tow something large, say a commercial aircraft or perhaps one of the Mount Rushmore heads after having won it in a game of poker? What exactly would you use to do so? Well, should such a need arise anytime soon, dont worry, I got you fam. Check out this 1995 Ford F350 Crew/Dually which is not only built to tow, but has pics in its ad showing it doing just exactly that.
What makes this such a good tractor for your trailer? Well, primarrily its the Navistar 7.3-litre PowerStroke that lives under the hood that make this a big tow. That 210-bhp/425 lb-ft of torque turbo diesel V8 has a rep for getting the job done. This one is backed up with a five-speed and includes a spate of updated parts that should keep the truck running for well beyond its current 260,000 miles. More on that a little later, however.
Aesthetically, theres some evidence of all those miles. The clear coat is going bye-bye in places, and the ad notes some old Bondo in the body going bad. On the plus side, it has running boards you can actually run on, as well as extendable Chevy trailer mirrors that are so big you could do a Coachellas-worth of coke off of them. Youll need those to see past the dually rear fenders.
The interior is as lived-in as your favorite pair of old blue jeans, and this being a Centurion conversion means it comes with an overhead CB radio and some other niceties. I particularly like the neckers knob on the wheel.
As far as the towing goes, theres a set of rails for a fifth wheel bogie in the bed, as well as a hidden gooseneck and a standard ball out back. The toolbox shown in a couple of the pics is not included unfortunately, but you do get a clean Florida title.
So far youre in love, right? Well, youll need to know this trucks foibles before you can fully commit. The seller notes that the engine is running a little rough, and is smoking intermittently. Hell, at least its not vaping.
The real issue seems to be the transmission, which apparently is suffering a failure on the third gear synchro. That or a clutch, the sellers not sure, and according to the ad hes just so done working on the truck. Oh, and that seller seems to really like Trump, so if you dont be prepared to deal with that when negotiating.
Okay, so weve got a pretty unique deal herea Centurion F350 thats kitted to kill it when it comes to the towing competition. Yes it needs some workor acceptance of its inherent foibles just like your mom did of youbut overall it seems drivable and ready for modest action. The price is $5,500 which seems mechanics special range, but which well now need to square with the trucks description. What do you think, is this F350 worth that kind of scratch? Or, does that price just not tow the line?
