It isn’t often that we come across two “share” worthy Craigslist finds in a single day that are priced within just a couple of hundred dollars of one another. Channing Ivey has the honor of tipping us off to this very cool 1973 Ford F-350 ramp truck that looks the business, packs a 460 for power, and is shown in the photos to be a worker, hauling a Ford station wagon on its slanted back. Adding to the bitchin’-ness of this truck is the fact that it is a legit crew cab so the whole family or all the smelly race crew can get in on the act and roll to the track with you.
Like everything else in life, this truck isn’t perfect. The seller seems like a stand up dude because he took photos of the whole thing and not just glory shots of the prettiest parts of the rig. The roof looks like it is hurting the worst here and since we don’t know these trucks all that well we’re not sure if that is a common area to see one rust and if said rusted area is a tell-tale sign there there is major issues afoot in the cab. The lower cab corner appears to have some rust as well and that is a seemingly tricky customer because of the close proximity of the best. We’re not slamming the truck, just mentioning the things that the seller thought potential buyers should see.
Here’s what the seller listed in the ad about the truck:
C-6 Auto Transmission
373 Lock Diff. Rear
Power Disc Brakes
17.5 Foot Hodges Bed
Reese Rear Hitch
Alumium Wheels with Firestone Tires
Dual Gas Tanks
$8500.00 Firm Cash
We think the $8500 price may be a little strong but we are also asking ourselves when the last time we saw a 1973 Ford F-350 ramp truck was and the answer may be when the Lagana family was hauling their top fuel dragster on one a decade or two ago. Rare piece but a total wet dream of any Ford guy who wants to haul his old racer to the track on something neat. What do you think?
