For Sale - 1965 F250 Factory Crew Cab

It is time to sell my 65-CrewCab. The sale will help my Montana adventures. It has been a great truck and lots of work put into it but my interests have changed. One day I want to get a 4x4 Slick, yes I can convert the Crew Cab but I really don’t have a need for the extra seating plus I want a long bed. The Price is listed at 15,000. Below are some of the features it currently has. It still has a crazy thing going on with the tranny where it will sometimes slip when cold but after a ¼ or less it comes back to life and works with no problems. It really only happens if it sits for a few days or longer, but not every time. This is a new development and started at the last Slick Stock. It is what it is. The engine is very strong and has very low miles on it.

What I know about the History of this truck: It was running around Albuquerque NM (Airport/Tech School) then moved to Connecticut where it was sold. I suspect this was an old Forrest truck as it was painted green originally. Then it was at a trade school to do body work and paint. The PO lost interest after the temp shelter collapsed under the snow load. Didn’t do any damage but it was time for him to sell (didn’t want or couldn’t build a perm structure for it). Then I bought it in 2008 and he towed it to Texas. Since then lots of work and fun has been had with it. Kept almost all the time in the shop, it has made at least 2 or 3 slick stocks now.

Wow Chris, I'm sure that caught a lot of us by surprise, but you do what you have to do. Someone is going to get a good deal. You couldn't build one for that price.
I'm curious about your Montana experience. I love it out there.
Good luck on your truck sale.

That is a beautiful area. We picked up a new camper in chilliwack, British Columbia last year and got to spend a couple days in that area on the way home. We really liked Whitefish but didn't get over to Bigfork. When we get the chance we head to the Rockies, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana. Love it out there. I understand why you're moving. Good Luck on selling your truck and your move.

I would think it's a much less appealing area about Dec-Feb. Beautiful in the summer and fall but I'm not that big of a fan of winter. Always liked your truck, best of luck in your sale. Sorry to see it happen but totally understand your reasoning.

It sold quick after putting it on the FB trading post. Bye to my CrewCab it has been a lot of fun and hate to see it go but it is what it is.

The new owner is Brian Pope. He has been watching the build for a long time. Doesn't get around here too much but does pop in from time to time. I wish him the best.

grump -- Yes Whitefish is very nice as well but a little more expensive. It is only about 30 minutes from Bigfork so easy to get to. I do like the ski area in Whitefish.

LM14 -- I am strange, I like that white stuff that comes from the ski. Guess it is because I never really lived in it much but I'm sure I will learn.

Tom -- Yea I'm sure you had some Feelings on it. I still can't thank you and the others who helped out when that Tranny went out that first time. It is nice up there for sure.

Brian Pope, why do I know that name? Was he at Pate? He got a good one for sure.
