When you dreamed of big do-everything trucks in the 1990s, this 1997 Ford F-350 XLT Super Duty dually was it. Dual rear wheels, a fifth-wheel attachment, rugged upgrades, and a loaded extended cab interior make it irresistible.
You can instantly tell this truck has led a well-respected life so far. The story we're told is that the long-term first owner only used this for occasional trailering. After all, the mileage is exceptionally low for a long-haul king like this diesel F-350. The Toreador Red Metallic paint is believed to be the original application. While there's room for improvement on the finish, we kind of like how this remains complete without losing its ready-to-work style. And this one was given all the best accessories, including a heavy-duty brush guard, Bully side steps, an RKI headache rack, a Quantum toolbox, a fifth wheel tailgate, and a Reese pro series 15,000 lbs fifth wheel hitch. It all tells you that a Super Duty is ideal for getting down to work, but this example was never thrown into the deep end. Instead, any real truck duty was done with care. And that same attitude continues today because the liner in the bed protects it from your big chores. This one also has all the right big truck features you want, including the running light on top of the cab, wide towing mirrors, and those awesome 8-lug wheels. And speaking of the wheels, the stance and traction of a dually are exactly what you want for real hauling.
Super Duty trucks often pull long-haul duty, and so they are made to be comfortable. The extended cab gives you the advantage of having a back seat that can accommodate extra people or extra storage. And Ford made sure this was truly comfortable for the driver. That's why the front has two high-back bucket seats with fold-down armrests and a large center console. Your seat even power adjusts to the ideal position. And because this was built to be a great truck to take near or far, you have all the right premium features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, sliding rear window, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth.
The engine bay is filled with 7.3-liters of Power Stroke turbodiesel muscle. The large displacement and a sturdy reputation make this a true hauling machine. In fact, we even have a receipt showing a new four-speed automatic transmission installed in 2022. Good maintenance is at the cornerstone of a hardy Power Stroke, and this one also includes good fundamentals like the water pump, serpentine belt tensioner, radiator hoses, thermostat, and more all serviced in 2018. And since you have power steering and power brakes with discs up front, it's as easy to take to the grocery store as it is to haul your large trailer.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. This is a rare opportunity where preservation, power, and utility come together in an awesome package. Don't miss this dually, call today!
