Up for sale is my 1997 ford f250 this truck is a great truck im trying to be as honest as possible so there is no confusion with the listing. I've owned this truck for many years and always took good care of it I recently (last feb) bought a new f350 so I no longer need it the truck has been sitting since I feel it's a shame for it to go unused so hopefully it finds a good home
The good :
New exhaust manifolds one yr ago
4x4 works well
Heat works well
Ac works well
Trans shifts smooth
Fires right up
Brake box in cab
tires are in good shape
New water pump
Some new brake lines
New timing chains
New front main seal
New fuel filter
Comes with bed tool box
Plow set up
What it needs:
Front driver side brake caliper
Needs driver side window installed (window comes with sale)
Starter solenoid went bad so I bypassed it with a push button start
Rear fuel pump stopped working (has two tanks) the front fuel pump works
Could use a tune up the engine fires right up and purrrrs like a kitten but when u give it throttle it brakes up and hesitates I assume from sitting
The plow pump needs to be bolted up and wiring must b ran blade has rust spots (comes with e47 Meyers pump and wiring)
I think that's it if I think of anything else ill update and edit the listing as you can see the truck doesn't need that much a couple bucks and a weekend in the garage should do it perfect for someone handy this truck is being sold as is buyer is responsible for pick up or delivery I would recommend trailering it do to the brake caliper
ive included a bunch of pics so u can really see the overall vehicle condition any questions or for other pics please just ask thanks and good luck.. a little later i will be posting a link to a youtube video so u can hear the engine run ect...

Australia's Motoring has put together a little video on two of the great performance vehicles available down under - the Holden VF Commodore HSV GTS and the Ford Falcon FPV GT R-Spec. And while both FPV and the Falcon might be on their way out, there's still plenty of time for a little head-to-head comparison between the two.

The cars aren't all that well evenly matched, though. The Ford boasts a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8, which the Aussies measure out at 449 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The HSV, though, with its Corvette-derived, 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 is just too powerful - 576 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque.
Predictably, it doesn't end too well for the Ford. As the guys from Motoring point out, the new VF Commodore is just too new and too good, with its extra power and its adaptive dampers (GM's excellent MagnaRide). Interestingly, Motoring did point out that the Holden's electric steering is better than the Ford's hydraulic steering, which is a lot like a Porsche purist saying they prefer water-cooled engines to air cooled.
Ford and Hyundai are out from under the scrutinizing eyes of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after the government agency said it was closing investigations against both automakers over vehicle safety concerns.

Ford was being investigated for reported damaged speed control cables on Ford Taurus (shown above) and Mercury Sable models, both built between 2000 and 2003. Vehicles with the company's Duratec engines allegedly failed to allow owners to brake as expected. Owners lodged 100 complaints and were involved in five accidents, according to NHTSA records. The American automaker responded to the reports, and on June 21 of this year, said that it would inspect and repair all affected vehicles, regardless of the mileage.
Hyundai was under investigation for a reported loose fastener on the steering shaft of its 2011 Santa Fe (shown in the gallery below). After NHTSA launched its inquiry, the Korean automaker responded with its own investigation that yielded four affected vehicles. Following the inspection of 680 vehicles at its assembly plant, Hyundai said the issue was due to employee error and that no further defects have been found.
In early December, Ford filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the name "Model E." Historically, Ford never produced a Model E, and while automakers are known to file for trademarks they never use, some have wondered if the application might be used for a concept car.
Based on other recent events, though, it could be a legal move. In 2000 Ford sued an online start-up called Model E over the similarity of that name to Ford's industry-shaping Model T, but the judge dismissed the case citing lack of proper grounds. In August 2013, Tesla applied for trademark registration for Model E, and at the time, Ford said it would review the application. Tesla actually made two applications for Model E, one for automobiles and structural parts therefore, the other for "providing maintenance and repair services for automobiles," and there are plenty of theories about what the name could be applied to.
The Published for Opposition date for Tesla's applications is December 31, 2013, after which anyone who thinks they'd be harmed by Tesla being granted the trademark gets 30 days to register their issues. This is just speculation, but Ford's application - which was filed for automobiles only - might be about protecting what it sees as unwelcome encroachment on the name Model T, protection it wasn't able to enforce before when the stakes were only online and much smaller.
