Posted over the weekend here on Craigslist in Ledgewood, New Jersey is this very solid 1969 Ford F250 Camper Special the current caretaker has listed for $4,499. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide confirms the seller has his truck priced $1,300 less than the #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate.
Ford launched its fifth generation line of F-Series pickups in 1967 and carried the design through to 1972. Built on the same platform as the previous generation, the new F-Series sported sharper styling lines, a larger cab with bigger windows, and an expanded engine options. In the late sixties, campers capable of fitting into pickup truck beds became a popular alternative to either tent or trailer camping, so Ford offered a “Camper Special” version of it’s F-250 3/4 ton truck. These versions typically came equipped heavy duty suspension, bigger brakes, a big block V8, and dual gas tanks as well as a full gauge package.
The seller reports his F-250 features a rebuilt 390 cubic inch V8 and while his truck is very solid overall, the one rusty area requiring attention is the driver’s side floor. The seller also provides a walk-around video of his truck which details the aforementioned rusty floor pan as well as the fuel tank work needed. Overall, we love the solid bones of this truck. Personally, we would restore the interior, clear coat the nicely patina’d exterior, mount a set of American Racing rims on a freshly lowered suspension and drive it to every show we could find. Regardless of what the next caretaker decides to do with this F-250, we wish them good luck with the purchase!
