Curbside Outtake: 1970 Ford F-250 Sport Custom Camper Special

This sharp 1970 Ford F-250 Sport Custom Camper Special (sorry, not the Brougham Edition!) is a bit of a rare bird these days, and especially so here in the Salt Belt.

Ford offered the Camper Special option on all three truck platforms (F-100, F-250, F-350) and checking the option basically got you larger mirrors, a heavy-duty alternator and radiator and some extra gauges on the dash.

Motivation came from the indestructible “Big Six” (300) all the way up to the 390 V8.

The truck’s been sitting there for nearly a year. I suspect the $4,000 asking price is probably why.

Now if you’re looking for something with a little more “patina,” there’s always that Chevy in the background…
