|Please enjoy the 220+ PICTURES, INCLUDING IMMACULATE, RUST FREE UNDERSIDE BELOW DESCRIPTION. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ FULL DESCRIPTION AND VIEW ALL THE DETAILED PICTURES IF SERIOUS!!! |
IF BUY IT NOW IS USED, I WILL PAY 1/2 THE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN THE LOWER 48 STATES WITH A SHIPPING COMPANY THAT I HAVE USED FOR MANY YEARS WITH NO ISSUES THAT IS LICENSED, INSURED, AND BONDE, OR 1/2 OF THE COST OF A COACH PLANE TICKET FROM ANYWHERE IN THE LOWER 48 STATES!!
YOU WILL NOT FIND A NICER, BETTER MAINTAINED, IMMACULATE, NEEDS NOTHING 7.3 POWERSTROKE F250 4X4 LARIAT FOR THE MONEY!! This is one of the cream puffs you've waited a long time to find!! This is a 1 family owned ( 75 year old father, then mid 50's son ) immaculate, garage kept 7.3 with owners manuals, maintenance record, a folder of receipts, both keys and remotes, and OCD maintained its whole life with an open wallet!! Any wear item was always replaced before needed. This is the cream of the crop, nicest 7.3 you will EVER find in this price range. Period. In the past few months I have sold several very clean, low mileage 7.3 Powerstroke trucks here on Ebay, so I am very familiar with the current market for immaculate ones that are above and beyond the less expensive ones. ALL you will find for less, will not be anywhere close to what I choose to deal with. I deal in the cream of the crop 7.3's and don't just clean them and list them like the others. I typically look at 25-30 before purchasing 1. Please keep checking back with my other auctions to see current inventory, or message me and I can call you and we can discuss what I have. The immaculate, well cared for 7.3's are very desirable and are getting harder and harder to find each day, unfortunately and have been going up in value the last few years, not down like all the newer trucks. This one has has been always garaged and maintained to beyond OCD standards. I am very picky of what I choose to deal with and my 100% positive feedback from those that have purchased from me over the past 12 years reflects. Look at the other 7.3's available....any underside pictures? A thorough, detailed description? Has the 3 quarts of injector HPOP oil been changed frequently? (99 out of 100 7.3's it has never been changed, which is what ruins the expensive injectors!!), has the proper coolant been used and drained from the block as well as the radiator and reservoir? You get what you pay for.... this truck needs nothing and everything has always been done before needed as preventative maintenance, rather than because truck needed it, and done properly. Oil is clear, coolant is clean with proper SCA additive. This is a no worry truck, unlike the others out there. Pride of ownership is evident everywhere on this truck. Buy It Now for $29,900 and I will pay for 1/2 the cost of shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states, or 1/2 the cost of a plane ticket from anywhere in the lower 48 states for you to fly out and drive this beauty back and enjoy a little vacation. Priced to sell immediately. Whom ever hits Buy it Now, get this beautiful, needs nothing 7.3 4x4 Powerstroke!! Don't miss out and regret it later, you will never find another one this nice! Both the speed control modification recall and crank position recall have been done on this truck. The well maintained, low mileage 7.3's are getting harder and harder to find, don't miss out on this one, and regret it later. I hear it all the time where people tell me they they put it on their watch list, then someone else buys it while they are still thinking about it...
Thank you for viewing my auction. After being disappointed by all the ratty other 7.3 Power Stroke trucks out there and looking at this one, please feel free to message me. This is a 7 day auction and it will sell and you will not find another like it. Most of my 7.3 Power Strokes end up selling before listing ends due to time. Whomever hits Buy It Now gets it immediately!! No bidding and waiting, no back and forth negotiating, no games, no documents fees or taxes collected by me. Don't miss out, this truck will sell, hopefully to you.This truck is an absolute cream puff and drives absolutely exceptional, and is excellent through out. Has always been in dry climates, and always garaged. Only hand washed and waxed and it shows!! It looks, starts, runs, smells, and drives like new. Suspension and steering is tight with no wandering or looseness, no clunks when going over bumps, brakes and hubs like new, immaculate interior and underside. All maintenance items fresh. Never eaten in, smoked in, spilled in, or interior soiled, and even still smells like new! Seat covers and towels have covered the immaculate interior since new. No worn down seat leather or foam here!! No pets or young children have ever been in it. No stains anywhere. There is not a nicer, 7.3 4WD F250 Powerstroke available for this price, I can honestly say that, because there are none other like this truck. Any you find for less will have dents, leaks, scratches, banged up beds, and wear all over. Look around, you'll waste a great deal of time and then see what I am talking about. Yes, you can buy one of these for around $20K or less from the rust belt, but they won't be anywhere close to this truck and still will not be a garaged, immaculately maintained and a well optioned and upgraded truck like this one. This truck has over $9K in professionally installed upgrades and preventative maintenance that I will explain below. If you want a project, please buy one, as this is not it. If you don't know the history of the 7.3 Power Stroke, please use Google. I get a kick out of people that message me saying they can get an 07 for what I am asking for my 7.3's. An 07 is a 6.0, I would not take another 6.0 if someone gave it to me. Again, use Google if you don't know about diesels, or the difference between gas and diesel trucks. I am not going to spend more time and space here explaining diesel vs. gas or how bad the other diesels are as it is well known and easily searchable if you don't personally already know. Nothing overlooked on this truck, There is plenty of junk out there if you want a cheapo that needs a huge amount of expensive work, but will never equate to a truck such as this that has been properly preserved and maintained. Buy one of the junkers, change the oil 5X after running it, and it still won't be clean and never will be. This one is clean and always has been, If you want a turn key truck that will do what you want it to, be reliable, very spacious and comfortable, needs nothing, basically like new, and a workhorse that keeps up with your rugged intensive labor you expect from it, you just found it. Pay a little more than the junk out there and get A LOT more. This is a perfect tow rig that is simple, inexpensive, and easy to maintain with out all the sensors and maintenance issues of the new ones! All the maintenance items have been taken care of (and always done before needed). I have never had a person buy a 7.3 Powerstroke from me that has not been more than happy. Please take the time to allow the 220+ detailed photos to load, it IS WELL WORTH the wait, and PLEASE read the entire description before asking questions (I know it is long, but I wanted to cover all bases) If you are serious, I know you will read every word, and look at every picture in detail. This is the type of person I am looking for, for a quick and easy sale. I am very easy to deal with. Feel free to message me for my phone number or send me yours and we can discuss every aspect of this amazing truck. This truck is priced for a quick sale to the discriminating enthusiast/collector that appreciates all the details, cleanliness, and correctness of a MINT 7.3 4X4Powerstroke. Everything correct on this truck for both finish and function, so you don't have to do a thing. Ready to work or play. Perfect advertising vehicle for your business too and can even be a tax write-off while towing your boat, show car, trailer, camper, etc.!!
Shipping available at buyer's expense by a licensed, bonded and insured auto transport company that I have used for years with no issues. It is less expensive to ship at this time of year than you'd think, or you are welcome to fly into the Palm Springs International Airport and I will pick you up and you can drive this gem home and enjoy a little vacation!! I would not hesitate to have my daughter or wife drive this cross country!! Shipping will cost anywhere from $350-1200 anywhere in the lower 48 states from my door to yours and I will pay 1/2 of it if Buy It Now is used.
Price is a Buy it Now of $29,900 to sell immediately. No taxes, document fees, or games like other charge, collect, and play. This truck will sell, don't miss out, you will never find another like it in this condition, mileage, with all these options. I own a full service shop very familiar with these trucks, especially the 7.3. You want something added, deleted, or changed? Not a problem. We can add anything your heart and wallet desires to make this exactly what you want and need for your exact use and price range!! I have other 7.3's Super Duty's available too for different price ranges, message me for specs on them. I am a distributor for many companies, specializing in 7.3 upgrades, and preventative maintenance items such as supplemental coolant, transmission, and oil bypass filters, larger transmission coolers, spray on bed liners (already has a plastic liner in this truck), turbo upgrades, tuners, etc.
This is a 2001 F-250 4 Door Crew Cab, 6.5 foot (8 foot with tailgate down) Short Bed (also known as a "Shortie") Lariat with 4x4 Off Road Package. It was specifically ordered with its unique options and only driven in the nicest of weather. Rare to see optioned with the Lariat Package with leather and traction lock rear differential, power windows, equipment group and sliding glass rear window, in addition to the factory side steps, fog lights, power and duel heated seats, and the 4X4 Off-Road Package which includes higher ride height and stiffer shocks. Very few 01's came with these packages, let alone in rare and beautiful Island Blue Metallic!! It has only been driven by mature adults and never used as a work truck or beaten up. Bed never banged up and had a plastic bedliner installed when truck was near new and has kept the bed looking great. This truck has rarely even towed anything its whole life. Never even had a brake controller installed. Has the factory tow package should you choose to tow anything. Most of the low 123K miles were driving between fathers homes in ID, NM and CA in the summers. Not driven in the snow or salt even!! It has never been abused and always was used as a secondary vehicle, hence the low miles for a 7.3. Never used as a work truck and always garaged. 123K miles is almost all freeway (and just breaking in for a well maintained 7.3 Powerstroke). Oil changes on time or every six months, what ever came first. Transmission fluid, rear end fluid, power steering fluid, fuel filter, and Motorcraft green coolant/distilled water, thermostat, radiator cap, coolant tank, etc are new as is the serpentine belt, hoses (including heater hoses which are often overlooked), batteries, etc. Water pump was also done recently and does not leak or seep. Truck needs absolutely nothing. Nothing at ALL!! Hop in and go anywhere!! It runs and drives perfect and has no leaks, seeps, drips, or issues. Even after driving the truck for several hours there are no seeps what so ever. THE TRUCK FIRES UP EVERY TIME, FIRST TIME. THE GLOW PLUGS AND INJECTORS HAVE ALL BEEN TESTED AND ARE WORKING PERFECTLY. I WOULDN'T HESITATE TO DRIVE THIS TRUCK ACROSS THE COUNTRY!! It is the nicest 7.3 4x4 available for the money. Why save a few dollars and buy someone else's problems and have to put thousands of dollars into something you just bought? This incredible F-250 truck has always been driven only on nice days since new and garage kept. All freeway miles and only on nice weather trips. Pride of ownership and maintenance shows in every aspect of this truck! Never in the snow or salt. The truck from top to bottom is immaculately clean which is very evident, including underside, door jambs, and engine box!! A machine buffer or machine car wash this truck has never seen. No faded lights, emblems, or trim, like all the others out there. Most have chalky weather beaten trim, emblems and moldings, these are all really nice. Not driven on gravel roads or in the mud. Underside alone speaks volumes about this truck. I own a high end Automotive shop that has been in business for 23+ years and am VERY particular with all vehicles I choose to deal with. Truck has never been abused, mudded, raced, damaged or driven by kids, etc, since built. All original body panels look great and paint is like a mirror. No rust, scrapes, dents, dings, scratches, and no curb rash on the immaculate, 16" forged OEM Alcoa brand wheels made for Ford. This truck is absolutely exceptional through out. Body panels and paint are amazing. You can literally shave in the reflection of the paint!!
In my 23+ years in the automotive business, I have rarely seen, owned, or driven a nicer built and well balanced truck that is so fantastically preserved and taken care of. I have owned over 1000 Mustangs, Shelby's, Big Block's, Boss's, Pantera's, Saleen's, Roush's, Cobra's. Lightning's etc, mostly collector models, and rarely see a vehicle (of ANY type) kept in this condition. This is the perfect tow vehicle for your collector car. It will tow like there is nothing behind it and turns heads where ever you go. Suspension and steering is smooth and not bouncy or twitchy when driving down the road, or on the freeway. Does not wander when on freeway. Truck is appraised and insured for $34K on a collector car policy and it is $415 per year for full coverage and agreed value of $34K. Most insurance companies will do the same for you and insure it as a collector vehicle and you can still tow with it!!
Oil has been changed every 6 month or 3K miles which ever came first. Only correct 15W-40 oil used. It has always been started up and allowed to get up to operating temperature every few weeks, then driven around the block to keep all seals lubricated and to keep everything in operating condition when not taken on long trips. Every tank of diesel has had Archoil or Lucas fuel additive which has kept injectors perfect with today's low sulfur diesels. Always warehoused or garaged. Nothing leaks, drips, or seeps. No warning lights illuminated on the cluster. Everything works as new. No sweat marks, stains, smells, fading etc on any exterior, or interior. Seats are like new and have been covered with seat covers since new. Leather still supple and smells new. Foam is firm and not worn down like most. Heated seats work excellent and will warm your butt and back with-in seconds. It really looks, drives and feels like a near new truck. Carpets are excellent and covered since new. All lights work. Incredible sounding premium sound system plays CD's and MP3's too. Painted to match Snug Top shell was installed when truck was new and cost over $3500 new. It is insulated, and carpeted and has a dome light, It is water tight too and locks with included key. It removes and installs with 2 people in less than 10 minutes. A color matched windshield visor with running lights was also added when truck was new to help with glare on sunny days driving into the sun. It is also easily removable if you don't like it and no holes were drilled. Also has bug deflector on edge of hood that was also installed when new to keep bugs and rocks from hitting the windshield. It is easily removable too and no holes were drilled. Thoseare the only deviations from stock. ALL ELSE STOCK!! Never had aftermarket exhaust or cut up for non functional modifications. Never has had a tuner installed or aftermarket air intake. Complete original exhaust was removed and hi temperature ceramic coated to prevent rust and keeping the heat inside the pipe for better fuel mileage and efficiency. New u-pipes, turbo rebuilt and balanced, Viton Turbo pedestal seals, HPOP seals, engine oil, fuel filter, front and rear differential fluids, power steering fluid, and Green Motorcraft coolant with SCA additive and distilled water are all new. Tie Rods (both inner and outer) are recent as is the alignment. A/C blows ice cold!! Many records come with the truck. It starts the first time, EVERY time. Injectors, Motorcracft UVCH, valve cover gaskets and glow plugs are all recent too. There is $9K+ in upgrades and preventative maintenance described in this paragraph alone. I am not kidding when I say this truck needs nothing. I am very thorough with these trucks and know them well. No one else pays attention to the details that I do that sells these trucks, or spends the time to take the amount of pictures I do and detailed description!! Original seat belts are not hard as a rock like most and still supple with original silk screening that still looks new. All retractors work properly too. Interior even still has the new truck smell. You simply can NOT find one like this!!! This is a one in a million truck, hands down. Again, pay a little more and get a LOT more...I take the amount of pictures I do and write the small novel that I do on each and every truck, so that the buyer can feel 100% confident on what they are getting with no worries or concerns.
Underside, and inside of wheels detailed and cleaned frequently since new as is the exterior and interior. Carpet has never been shampooed, spilled on, and still looks like new with no fading, or unraveling . Inside of truck still smells like new!! Original jack, tire iron, and mounting hardware all original, never used and look new with original stickers. Everything works like it is supposed to. No sticky door locks, slow window motors, etc. Just look at the pictures, they really explain this truck, hands down, better than I can.
This truck is impeccable for the price. No issues of any type. Many 7.3's with more miles and not near as clean and pride of ownership have sold in the past 6 months for close to, the same as, and more than I am asking for as my BUY IT NOW with out all these upgrades and extra preventative maintenance. A/C works perfect. Heat very hot. Brakes and suspension like new. No gear noise, slips, or issues. Care has always been taken with this truck, which is very evident in the pictures. you can eat of any part of the truck including the interior, engine box and underside. It runs and drives as excellent as it looks. No other 7.3 Lariat available is as nice as this one...Look around and you will soon see.
Ice cold A/C as stated before. Does not run hot when A/C is on. I find I actually have to turn the A/C to a higher setting after 10 minutes even in 100 degree heat as I start shivering in this truck with A/C on full blast!! Belt does not moan or squeal like some do with the A/C on. Does not overheat even in 100+ degree weather. Coolant changed every 2 years with proper Ford Motorcraft green coolant, distilled water, and Ford SCA diesel additive even when driven little and flushed this year including from the block. No exhaust leaks from anywhere, including up pipes like many have. Sounds fantastic with absolutely no odd noises or issues! Truck has never had an aftermarket exhaust, air intake, or tuner installed or been beat on like most, or the turbo overheated by towing too much (look at the ones for sale with discolored, brownish coating on the turbo and Y-pipe, where the EGT's were not payed attention too). NO EXHAUST LEAKS FROM UP-PIPES OR TURBO LIKE MANY HAVE!! Has no problems starting in cold weather either. It is very powerful and sounds great. Most of these trucks don't drive as good as they look, this one absolutely does! I have owned, bought, sold, or consigned 50+ Super Duty 7.3 Powerstroke diesels over the years, and unfortunately 3 6.0 and 6.4's, 2 V10's (horrible engines!!), and quite a few Lightnings, and this truck runs, sounds and drives better than most of them, honestly, plus doesn't cost a fortune to maintain like the newer diesels. I have not owned a 6.7, but have no interest after hearing horror stories from friends that have owned them and complained about ridiculous maintenance costs and a few that have caught on fire. Who wants to replace expensive particulate filters every 40-60K miles at a cost of over $4K+ and add diesel exhaust fluid consistently anyway, and wait for the truck to regenerate constantly.....not me!! The 7.3 is simple and easy to maintain and does not have tons of sensors like the new ones that go out and are very expensive to replace. Comes from the factory with no catalytic converter, no diesel particulate filter, no DEF fluid, and all the other power robbing, expensive to maintain items on the 03.5+ diesels!! You are basically looking at a near new truck for 1/3 the price (comparable truck actually $78K+ for a new junk diesel!!) of a comparable new one with out all the issues of the new ones. The 7.3 Powerstrokes are going UP in value while the minute you drive off the lot in any new diesel you've already lost money!!
Truck is meant to be driven and enjoyed. It has never sat for more than 2 weeks with out being started up, let get up to operating temperature, and driven. This is very important on a 7.3. Beware of super low mileage ones that have sat for months at a time that have dried up seals or the re-sellers setting the miles back in areas where the trucks don't get inspections. This is a truck always maintained with an open wallet. This truck drives VERY well. No hesitations, back-fires, pops, squeaks, and is not all over the road like most others for sale. Looks, drives and feels like a new truck. You will not find a nicer 7.3 4X4 Powerstroke for the money!! It is truly immaculate. The suspension is responsive and tight, steering is tight, and transmission is tight with no slippage or delayed shifts. Shifter not loose like many. Anytime something needed attention, it was addressed right away. Never has been abused and never towed anything it's whole life. Brakes are adjusted properly, and it stops very well and straight. Does not wander, shimmy, or have wind noise, even at 85 MPH on the freeway. There is not a nicer, low mileage, best year 7.3 Powerstroke out there for this low of a price anywhere! Never abused and was never a daily driver (even when new it was one of multiple vehicles owned in collection of vehicles). All work has been professionally done on this truck since new. Has been garaged its whole life and babied. It is very powerful, reliable, and nothing has been overlooked for longevity, tastefulness, and durability. Owners manuals/handouts, jack and spare tire instructions, towing guide, etc etc come with the truck. Truck is super smooth! This truck is very quiet, even on the freeway. You won't find a nicer, needs nothing 7.3 truck for the price, anywhere!!
You arebetteroff getting one of these trucks that have been driven, properly broken in, and properly maintained than one with super low miles that has not been properlystoredor has dried up seals because of incorrect storage and maintenance. Nothing leaks or seeps on this truck (even rear main seal doesn't seep) and it burns no oil. No black smoke when you step on it. Again, truck does not leak or seep a drop of anything. All lights, including hood light work like they should. Starts right up, first time, every time. Idles smoothly with nice deep exhaust tone. No hesitations or skips. Very smooth power. Gets great MPG too, 18+ MPG in town, and 24+ MPG on the freeway driving easy. If you set the cruise control at 2050 RPM (7.3's sweet spot) on level ground it will get 24+ MPG!! I have towed with these 7.3's with tires aired up, and using an additive and have got over 20 MPG while towing!!
Brakes front and rear are firm and recent rotors (front and rear) and pads done 6 months ago as were the hubs (Originals lasted that long!!). 4 wheel disc with ABS on all 4 wheels. Power assist works as it should. No shimmies, squeaks, or pulls when you step on the brakes. Parking brake works perfect. Fresh Motorcraft 75-140 synthetic fluid with friction modifier in rear differential, fresh 75-90 synthetic in front. U joints tight. Transmission fluid and filter also just done and look like new inside. Both cooling system green coolant/distilled water new. Brake fluid also flushed and refreshed (every 2 years). As I said before, ALL fluids and filters have always been changed well before needed, as has all the preventative maintenance. These 7.3's are simple, easy, and inexpensive to maintain! Hop in and go anywhere with this truck with no worries, unlike the others out there that will need money put in them right away.!!
Carpet, seats, and original console covered when driven. Ashtray and cigarette lighter never used, not even for coins or junk to mar the ashtray! Cup holder is not broken like most and pops out of dash correctly. No rattles or wind noise!! Truck will seat 6 comfortably and rear seat back folds forward for extra storage in the cab. I know I keep saying it, you will not find a nicer 7.3 4X4 for the money!! Look at the undersides on others for sale (if they even have underside pictures) they are usually rusty, oily, bent up, and filthy ( and sometimes people even spray can them all over the hoses, bolts and floor pans!!!), interiors worn and dirty, worn seats, beat up beds, and the engine boxes look awful with all aluminum corroded etc etc. Please take the time to look at my 190+ pictures & videos and you will see the difference between this truck and the others out there for sale. You DO get what you pay for in this case!!
Fully loaded and amazingly clean from top to bottom. No surprises or disappointments with this truck. Original Island Blue Metallic Clearcoat paint shines like new and has been waxed regularly (you can literally shave in it) and always garaged. It is drop dead gorgeous. Much more durable and deep looking than today's water base paints. Look at the reflections (hard to photograph with the glare from the reflections, so I took some pictures in the sun, and some in the shade). Never been put on a lift incorrectly, never been bottomed out. Door jambs, engine box, wheels, underside, and bed also kept clean and waxed. It looks like it was toothbrush detailed since new. Look at the underside and frame rails. Many original marking and stickers still visible on underside. Never a bent body panel, floor pan, or frame rail and never any body damage or paint work that I can tell. All original Ford Carlite tinted privacy glass, including windshield that has original Ford stickers on it and looks like new with no pitting, cracks, or chips. No dents, paintwork, or scrapes anywhere on the body that I can see. The only flaws I can even think of, most would never even notice...there are a few spots through out where there were very small minor chips that have been touched up with original Ford match touch up paint and compounded (Ford touch up paint included, the tires are from 2009 and have great tread, but are from 2009, the are 2-3 tiny door dings than any paintless dent removal company can remove if they bother you....you really have to search to find them, there are 2 small dings in the rear bumper that you can only see if you look hard, and there is a scuff in the plastic of the passenger's side mirror. There is nothing else I can think of that this truck needs or any thing else to really consider a flaw....No accidents or paintwork anywhere on the body that I can see. Once again, no fading, gouges, scrapes,or dents. Roof has always been dried and waxed unlike most trucks, so there is no fading. Front and rear bumpers are immaculate. Ford OEM mudflaps were installed when truck was new and have kept the areas behind wheel wells perfect. You rarely will see an interior this immaculate. Again, I am VERY picky (I am told the pickiest person that all of my friends know) and believe in being 100% honest about each and any flaw or issue I can find and I go over these trucks very thoroughly. I know myself, that I want to know everything about something I am buying before I buy it, so I treat others in the same manner and respect. This truck looks and drives like a 20K mile, 2 year old, well taken care of truck to put it into perspective. The truck is nicer, drives much better, and way better maintained and kept detailed over any other 7.3 4X4 out there in this price range. Everything works like it should. Again, please take the time to look at the 220+ detailed pictures.Truck is very clean through out and a thrill to drive. More reliable and durable than all the new diesels out there with out all the maintenance nightmares of the new ones. It has power to spare and is tight, quiet, and comfortable. Google the 7.3 Powerstroke and you will see that they are considered the BEST diesel ever put in a truck! I know these 7.3's exceptionally well as I have owned and worked on quite a few over the years. Look at the others out there for sale, they don't compare to this one at all. NOT at all.......You get what you pay for. Ask questions if you have them if you are serious, I am very easy to deal with, and am happy to talk on the phone about this impeccable truck from top to bottom. I am very easy to deal with and very passionate about these 7.3's as you can probably tell by now if you are still reading!!
Truck is VERY clean top to bottom. Steering wheel look like new with no worn leather and airbag pads are not warped. Horn and cruise control both work perfectly. Lighter never used, and truck has never been smoked in to my knowledge as it still has the new car smell inside. All lighting in the gauge cluster and on switches all work perfectly. All power options work perfect. Power windows smoothly glide up and down smoothly with no clunks or skips. Power door locks work like they should and don't catch like most. Power seat works in all positions and operate smoothly. 2 keys and 2 alarmremotes with no worn buttons. No wind noise or leaks when truck is washed. Mirrors work in all directions and the glass doesn't rattle like some when you are driving the truck. Doors close tightly. Speedometer works perfect and doesn't bounce or stick like most. All gauges work perfectly and are accurate. All lights work both interior and exterior. Truck just turned 123K miles, which is just breaking in for a well maintained 7.3 Powerstroke such as this one. Last oil change done 500 miles ago. I put a minimum of 400 miles on each and every 7.3 I get and make sure anything that bothered me during those miles gets fixed....anything from a simple rattle, shimmy, dirt, bulb, etc. Once I make sure everything meets my nit-pick-i-ness, truck goes into storage until sold and then started up and driven every two weeks (they usually sell before then!!). These 7.3 Powerstrokes are well known to be the best diesel ever installed in a truck and are often called the "million mile motor''. With proper maintenance there are quite a few out there with even more than than 1 million miles!! Ambulance companies love these and still have many in service as they are frustrated like everyone else with the issues with the newer diesels. Some of the local ones here in CA have over 1.5 million miles and sill going strong and surpassing the other diesels many times over!! Ford has not been able to produce a diesel since, or even close to a 7.3, and the others (Dodge and GM) may have OK diesel engines, but, the trucks that the engines are in can't seem to stay together!!
All lock cylinders are original to the truck and work smoothly with no binds, including tailgate lock. Look at how well all the body panels and windows line up!! All original trim, weatherstrips, lights and emblems are in excellent condition and not faded, chalky, cracked, or deteriorating like most others. Every correct clip, nut, bolt, rivet, plug, sticker, rubber bumper, etc is correct on this truck!! This is not a clean up and sell, everything is as correct as possible and has been since new. Care, thought, a huge amount of time, passion, and attention to detail is present on every aspect of this truck and has always been babied, detailed frequently, and waxed often. GORGEOUS COLOR COMBINATION!! Always kept indoors. Very hard to find combo too, with the short bed, crew cab 4 door, Lariat package, Island Blue Metallic paint, 4x4 Off Road Package, engine block heater, camper package, electronic shift on the fly transfer case, factory tow package, power telescopic tow mirrors, cruise control, advanced security group, power windows, locks, mirrors, privacy glass, sliding glass rear window, running boards, etc so it's perfect for hauling things while still easy enough to park (fits in most home garages, less than 20 ft long) ) and maneuver while taking the whole family not only in comfort, but know you will get there!!
Truck is available for inspection and can be driven or shipped anywhere. Out of country buyers welcome too, if you arrange shipping from the Long Beach Port. I can have the truck delivered to the Long Beach Port, included with BUY IT NOW. Clear CA title in hand. Currently registered and insured in CA until the end of October, 2018. It has spent all of its in nice weather, and never in snow. I have used several reputable shipping companies that are insured and bonded over the years with no issues, and will be happy to arrange for a serious buyer with BUY IT NOW at your expense (you pay your 1/2 shipping company when truck arrives), or you can fly in and drive it home and enjoy a little vacation. As explained before, I will pay half of either anywhere in the lower 48 states. In my experience shipping ranges from $350-1200 to any of the lower 48 states. Don't wait, once this truck is scooped up, it is gone and you will never find another like it!! I am very familiar with the 7.3 Powerstroke market. Many have sold in the mid to high 20's in the last 6 months, and a few in the 30's not as clean as this one with not the attention to detail, highly descriptive listing such as mine, 1 family owned, or detailed underside shots. I am confident this truck will sell fast at this price. Every time someone uses BUY IT NOW when not even talking to me first, I ask them what prompted them to do so? The answer is usually " your long, detailed description (small novel), and all the underside shots!" I want people to know exactly what the are getting, so I spend the time to describe everything I can think of to eliminate any unsure-ness. I have never had a person purchase a vehicle from me sight unseen that has not been more than happy with their purchase. My 12 year, 100% positive feedback given to me by others that have bought from me over the years reflects other people's purchase experiences with me on eBay. I go over these trucks from top to bottom, so you don't have to do a thing when you get it, unlike the others for sale that you will surely need to spend money on immediately. Pay a little more with me and get a no hassle truck. If you have a question or any doubt, feel free to message me with your phone # and I will call you myself, even on a weekend or evening....
Please email me with phone # and I will call you with any info you're requesting. I am not interested in trades or people that want to sell this truck for me. Truck is tight with no rattles, leaks, etc. The underside is as clean as the the rest of the truck and still has many of the original markings, line codes, inspection marks, stickers, etc.. The pictures speak for themselves. Please allow the time for the 220+ pictures to load, scroll down, and enjoy!!
Any questions, please message me and I will respondpromptly. This is a like to sell, not a must sell, or a desperation sale!! I price things fairly and on a Buy It Now, so there is no haggling back and forth or dealing with bidders that don't pay. In the past, I would do bid auctions which would end up getting bid higher than I may have wanted, but sometimes end up getting people that were not serious that ended up not paying. I did a Buy It Now, so you don't have to bid an and wait, and hope to get it. I get people all the time that email me after they missed something I have listed to let me know if the deal falls through...they will buy....Outright price for my truck is $29,900 if Buy It Now is used, and I know it will sell for that. Don't wait for someone else to use Buy It Now and miss it!! No taxes collected by me or any document fees like others charge. I choose to do Buy It Now, fixed price auctions over regular bid auctions because many people put on their watch list, then forget to bid at the last minute, then are upset that they missed it. Don't miss this one, you will never find another like it and don't go spending $70K + for a new truck that you will hate with in a month!! Again, I am VERY picky and go over everything. Deposit of $500 must be made immediately thru Paypal upon the use of BUY IT NOW and remaining balance due with in 3 days of winning auction. Any questions and/or inspections if wanted must be made BEFORE using BUY IT NOW. Please do not use Buy It Now unless you already have the money. If you need a loan, have it set up and approved first. You are welcome and encouraged to come and inspect the truck or send someone to look at it before buying. I am not a dealer, so no sales tax will be collected by me. Truck is sold as is with no warranty by me expressed or implied and no provisions will be made for anything deemed not accurate. I do my best to describe everything to the best of my ability. 1/2 the shipping must be paid by the buyer from Palm Springs, CA 92262 when truck arrives or you are welcome to fly into Palm Springs International Airport and I will pick you up, and you can drive the truck home and I will pay for 1/2 your coach plane ticket from anywhere in the lower 48 states. . Must be paid for in full with in 3 days, unless arrangements are made with me before using Buy It Now . I have clear CA title in hand. Truck will not leave and title will not be sent until truck is paid in full (and cleared) with either cash upon pick-up, direct deposit, loan check, or cashier's check/money order. Feel free to ask any questions and I will answer promptly. I have never had a person purchase a vehicle from me sight unseen that was not thrilled with their purchase!! I reserve the right to end this auction early as the truck is advertised on several other sites and publications, so if you want it, use BUY IT NOW before someone else buys it!! If you can not meet these simple requirements, please do not use Buy It Now and waste your time, mine, and others that are serious. If you need more time or have questions about payment, please feel free to message me with your phone # and we can discuss. I am VERY picky with vehicles I own. Again, I have 30+ vehicles and none are a must sell, just trying to free up some space as I can barely walk in my warehouses they are so full. I am not interested in magazine coverage, picture collectors, or time wasters that just want to come and look at my collection. I am not losing any of my houses, or desperate in any way.
In summary: EVERYTHING works!! No burnt out bulbs anywhere, even the back-up lights, dash lights, and original under hood light all work perfectly. Original owner's manuals, and handouts come with the truck, as well as both keys/remotes, maintenance records, etc. This F250 runs and drives excellent and has never been abused. There are no odd odors, odd rattles, or odd noises. You can drive this truck anywhere. Mileage may also varyminimallyas truck may be driven for test drives and/or inspections and I do drive it sometimes, but of course still kept indoors when not being driven. Please feel free to ask questions and I will answer promptly. This is not your average $20K or less 7.3 4X4 truck that you can find that needs $10K+ worth of work and still won't be as nice as this one. Why buy someone else's problems? Truck doesn't need a thing. This F-250 is a no excuse, honest truck, that needs nothing. It will only continue to go up in value if kept in this condition, unlike a new truck that starts going down in value the minute you drive it off the lot. Vehicles such as this from my experience are a much more solid investment than the stock market. Clean 7.3 Powerstrokes have been going UP in value due to all the terrible (and expensive!!) new diesels out there now. The nice ones have gone up 60-70% in the last 6 months. Diesel fuel is less cost that regular gas too. People consider the 7.3 Powerstroke to be the best diesel ever installed in a truck in the history of diesel trucks, and we will never see another diesel like the 7.3 Powerstroke!! Oil in this truck has been changed frequently (both upper and lower reservoirs) and the oil is clean. In 7.3's that have not been maintained, the oil will not be clean like this and never will be. The nice ones will keep going up in value when in the condition and desirability of this one. Remember, you get what you pay for, this truck does not need ANYTHING!! The paint, color combination and upgrades are simply stunning and the options make it a pleasure to drive and it turns heads where ever you go. The turbo is amazing and has power to spare. People stop at gas stations and make comments on how immaculate it is. Be the envy of your friends and neighbors!No excuses, issues, or stories with this truck. Have a great day and thank you for looking and (hopefully) reading my long description..I just want to be thorough. Each time I think of something else, I revise the listing, add more pictures, and before I know it, it ends up this long!! Very few read what I end up writing, but if you have, thank you!! Feel free to contact me with any questions. :)
