Up for auction is a beautiful 1964 Ford F-250 with just 132,190 actual original miles. This was a one family owned truck until October of 2020 and has extensive documentation and service history from new. The original owner purchased this truck from Wendle Ford of Spokane, Wa in May of 1964. In the same week, the original owner purchased an 8' slide in camper that remained on this truck for several decades. The primary use for this truck was for family camping trips. The original owner kept a small journal in the truck where he logged every single tank of fuel purchased including the amount of fuel, fuel cost, date and mileage. The first entry started on May 21, 1964 with 9 miles on the odometer and spans over 30 pages until September 28, 2010 with 130,788 miles. Also documented in this journal is every single lube service and oil change, notes of tire replacements including brands, dates and how many miles they lasted for, battery replacements, etc. The most notable entry outlines a complete engine rebuild in July of 1995 at 127,000 miles. In addition to the rebuild, the clutch, flywheel, radiator, brakes, king pins, steering arm and all shocks were replaced at this time. An entry dated June 29, 1977 states that the truck hit the 100,000 mile mark while visiting Yellowstone National Park. The original owner unfortunately passed away in 2013, only driving the truck 5,000 or so miles in the previous 20 years. The truck was left to the original owner's daughter who went on to sell the truck in 2020. The original Washington State license plates remain with this truck along with the first ever registration card from 1964. Also included is the original owner's manual, Ford service policy contract in the original envelope, an original Ford caution tag, the original Wendle Ford dealership key chain and a receipt for tires from 1969.
The interior of this truck is in incredible shape for its age and is all original aside from a newer seat cover that was likely installed 25+ years ago. The painted dash is in great shape without any major chipping or fading. All of the factory gauges are working. Aftermarket seat belts were installed at one time and remain behind the seat. A period correct Motorola 8 track player with speakers mounted in the headliner remain in the truck along with a Phillips intercom speaker system which was used to communicate to passengers riding in the camper. The original cigarette lighter appears to be unused as shown below.
The exterior of this F-250 looks incredible and is very straight despite its age. The truck has had one repaint in its original color and is likely 25+ years old. The paint does have some peeling clear on the bed rails and top of the tailgate as shown, along with some peeling and discoloration under the fuel fill on the driver's side cab extension. The rest of the paint shows very nicely with a deep shine. The truck has a few small dings here and there along with a small puncture in the rear of the passenger bedside near the bumper as shown. The undercarriage of this truck is very dry and rust free with only minor surface rust on the frame and suspension components. There are two small areas at the back of the cab underneath the truck where the spot welded area has become rusted, but it only protrudes to the outer skin. The driver's side is more substantial than the passenger side as shown. The cause of this is dirt collection and condensation from over the years and would be an easy repair if one desired to repair it at all.
This truck runs and drives well with excellent power. Since 2018 the truck was treated to a carburetor rebuild, new fuel pump, new battery, new battery cables, new battery tray, new vacuum advance, new fuel tank sending unit, new rear brake wheel cylinders, a new ignition switch with lock, a new headlight switch and a tune up. Receipts totaling over $2,000 from the above described work will be included with the sale.
