I have a 1955 Ford F 250, 2 wheel drive with the 223 straight six motor. It has around 60,000 miles on it. It doesn't run as of right now, but it wouldn't take much to get it to run, it is in pretty good condition. I've had it for a lot of years and just haven't gotten around to restoring it. I have the original owners manual and everything. I have seen a lot of F100s but not any F250's so i was wondering how rare it was? thanks

No one saved the F-250s because they've never been as desirable as an F-100 for customizing a classic truck. That doesn't mean in this day and age that an F-250 in real good condition isn't interesting, but its just not worth as much as an F-100.

Oh, and they never were rare, its just a 3/4-ton truck.

Most of the F-250 saw some heavy-duty service and didn't get a chance to live as long. You're not going to cut a fat at Jackson Barret with it, but myself I'd really enjoy seeing a truck like yours cleaned up and left as original as possible.

Yeah I wasn't sure if I wanted to leave it all original or put a bigger motor in it and make it in to a little rod, but I'll probably leave it mostly original. Now if i could just get around to workin on it. Grin

I would restore it to as close to orignal that is what I am going to do to mine. I have a 55 250 with a 239 V8 overhead valve and I am going to get to it too one of these days. Bought it from by grandma for $1. Have had it for over 25 yrs and still going to get to it one of these days.....
