1996 Ford F250
Zoom icon


The Ford F-series trucks have been some of the best-selling and most renowned work horses of all time. Perhaps the most common sighted F-trucks of yesteryear are those from 1980-1997. Maybe these are the best of the Fs, maybe its because Ford used the same body shell from 1980 until they went for a full redesign in 1997. The ninth generation started in 1992 with the first major facelift since 1987. The ninth generation F-trucks have garnered a cult following, and finding one in great shape is quite an achievement these days.

This 1996 F-250 XLT is properly appointed, with many desirable attributes. Despite the age of the truck and the nature of the work it appears to have been equipped to do, it remains in fantastic overall condition with only a few minor defects. The exterior is clean and straight with only a couple of dings/small dents and is far from beat up. Rust? Never heard of it! This 250 spent most of its life in Arizona. You won't find any cancerous tin worm on this puppy. Even the bed is in good shape, with only minor dings showing through the bed liner.

The interior shows minor wear on “touch items” such as the door handles, vent knobs, and steering wheel, but is in otherwise excellent condition. The driver's seat shows a very small amount of wear, but all of the soft goods including the seats are in great overall condition and have many years of good use ahead of them. With 103,564 actual miles, it is apparent that this F-250 has seen years of care and maintenance.

Under the hood is a 460 V8; that's right, she's gas! Many F-250s of this generation seem to be diesel, so it's fun to see one that is gas-powered. The engine purrs like this truck has 100,000 less miles on it, and it drives just how it should. The 460 may not be a Powerstroke, but it'll surely put enough power down to haul your fifth wheel trailer just fine! The engine bay is clean and complete, showing just how unmolested this truck is. When you were looking at how clean the interior is, did you notice the shifter? Yep, this truck is a 5-speed manual! All the more interesting, and sure to give you a more hands-on towing experience.

If you're after a clean, old-school tow rig that won't break down (and won't break the bank!) this is likely the truck for you. With proper maintenance, this F-250 is sure to give many, many more years of use.

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership and its affiliates shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with a vehicle prior to the close of sale. Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle. Contact the dealership about pricing to place a deposit on a vehicle.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
