Default 1982 F-150 - California Truck - PRICE DROP

I flew to LA last week and bought this truck with the sole purpose of taking a bitchin roadtrip, so now that I'm back it's going up for sale.

Stats:
1982 Ford F150
Extended (super?) Cab, long bed
351W
4 Speed Manual
2wd
15x,xxx miles
Clean Michigan Title

The Good:
-Not rusted out
-Shifter is about 4 feet long
-Can sleep at least 2 adults in the bed
-50 shades of brown
-Babe magnet
-Reliable enough to drive 3,300 miles in one week
-Aftermarket radio with aux input
-Aftermarket speakers
-2 Bench Seats
-2 Fuel tanks

The Bad:
-50 shades of brown
-Interior is in rough shape. (cracked dash, torn seat on drivers side)
-Oil Leak (somewhere at the back of the engine)
-Had a pickup bed camper on it for a long time, so its got some wear marks and a bit of surface rust on the roof and bed from that.
-Couple of dents here and there (drivers side of bed is the worst)
-Carb could use some tuning: cold starts are great, hot starts are a little harder. Probably just a choke issue.


Overall, this thing was actually very reliable, to the point that it was boring. Aside from needing to add oil, it ran just fine. The distributor rotor hit the cap at one point and damaged it, but I will replace both (probably this weekend).

Claims made by the previous owner:
-Carb rebuilt last summer
-New Brakes (they actually feel great)
-New belts, air filter, and fuel filter


Asking $1750, not really looking for trades. Feel free to contact me on here via PM or call/text me at (248) 245-4239

Whoops, forgot to include a picture of the back of the truck. It's missing the "O" from the tailgate and the passengers side reverse light is on whenever you turn the lights on.

My fondest memories of my Dad are of his 82 F150 single cab in that dark Brown color, good luck with the sale

That would be a cool vintage tow rig.

Should mention I'm very open to offers. The neighbors are starting to complain about the number of cars at my house.

Bump for the old school floor-mounted high beam switch! Doesn't get a whole lot cooler than stomping your foot to turn your brights on/off

Yep, that's me! I keep forgetting to finish the trip report, but I'll get around to it eventually.

Fortunately (for those that have read that thread) the oil leak isn't nearly as bad as I had thought. It's definitely there, but I think 8 hours a day of highway driving exaggerated it. I've been driving it around a bit over the last few weeks to make sure it doesn't just sit in my driveway and it doesn't lose much oil when you're casually driving around town.

I didn't track it for most of the trip, but the few times I did it was pulling high teens. Seems to be running a bit rich though so I'm sure with a little carb tuning you could get about 20.

Maybe you could eek out a little more if you pulled off all the emissions-related stuff that it has as a result of being from California.
