1965 Ford 250 Camper Special


This 1965 Ford F-250 Camper Special is powered by a 390ci Ford V8 mated to a four-speed manual transmission and reportedly spent its life in Southern California before relocating to Florida in 2017. The truck is finished in light blue with a contrasting white roof and features a two-tone tan and white bench seat that was reupholstered in 2017. The wiring harness was replaced and aftermarket gauges were installed in October 2019, while the selling dealer performed a tune-up, replaced the starter and exhaust system, and powder coated the wheels in preparation for the sale. This F-250 is now offered in Jacksonville, Florida with factory literature, some service records, and a clean Florida title.

The body wears an older repaint in light blue with a white roof and matching bumpers. Rust is present on the roof along with other areas of the body, and the condition of the paint and exterior can be seen up close in the photo gallery below. The selling dealer replaced the windshield and seal in April 2020, and the mirror brackets were powder coated white. The removed chrome window trim is included in the sale.

Solid steel wheels were also powder coated white earlier this year and wear Dextero DHT2 tires that were installed in 2017. A Wilwood brake bias adjuster has been fitted per the seller.

The bench seat was reupholstered in tan and white in 2017 by Arroyo Brothers Auto Upholstery of National City, California. The windshield wipers are reportedly not connected, and the air conditioning and radio are inoperable.

A replacement wiring harness was installed by Viking Auto Electric & Air in October 2019, along with aftermarket gauges mounted underneath the dash. The factory gauges are retained but are no longer hooked up. The five-digit odometer shows 57k miles, though true mileage is unknown.

The 390ci V8 was reportedly sourced from a 1969 Ford Galaxie and installed in the 1970s. The alternator, voltage regulator, ignition coil, and battery were replaced during the aforementioned electrical work in 2019, and the selling dealer replaced the starter in 2020, along with the exhaust system, distributor cap, rotor, and points. Maintenance notes from a prior owner were written in pencil on the underside of the hood as shown in the gallery below.
The four-speed manual transmission was rebuilt by Mike’s Transmissions of Carrollton, Georgia in 2018, and the work included resurfacing the flywheel and replacing the clutch. Detailed underbody photos are provided in the gallery below.
