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...

With the introduction of the aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 (and the likely use of aluminum in future Ford products), Ford is looking to help its dealerships reduce costs related to repairing this more labor-intensive material. Automotive News is reporting that Ford dealers with body shops will require an estimated $30,000 to $50,000 in equipment and training to work on aluminum, and to help alleviate the financial burden of the new F-150, Ford has announced a special 20-percent discount on this equipment.

Dealers will be able to save up to $10,000 on tools such as welders, air-filtration systems and rivet guns and to create aluminum-specific work stations. The new F-150 goes on sale in the fourth quarter, and dealers have until October 31 to take advantage of this deal, according to the report.
Ford had a bit of a recall spree around this time last year, with a pair of issues on the then-new 2013 Escape, followed by a recall of 423,000 2001 to 2004 Escapes because they might accelerate of their own accord. Accordingly, Uncle Sam pasted Ford with a $17.35 million fine because it took too long to inform customers, according to a report from Automotive News.

Ford agreed to settle with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, accepting the fine but not admitting fault. The recall, which afflicted Escapes with the 3.0-liter V-6 along with 217,000 Mazda Tributes from 2001 to 2006 and 2008, was due to faulty gas pedals that could stay down after a driver removed their foot.
Ford issued a statement regarding the fine, saying, "We take the safety of our customers seriously and continuously evaluate our processes for improvements. While we are confident in our current processes for quickly identifying and addressing potential vehicle issues, Ford agreed to this settlement to avoid a lengthy dispute with the government."
Ford's highly influential head of design, J Mays, has announced that he'll be retiring from his position after 33 years in the industry, 16 of which were at the Dearborn, MI-based company. Upon departure, he'll be succeeded as group vice president of design by Moray Callum. If that last name sounds familiar, yes, he's the brother of Jaguar's Ian Callum.
It's difficult to explain just how big of a role Mays had on not just Ford's design over the years, but on the entire industry. Before heading to Dearborn, Mays worked for Audi, BMW and then Volkswagen, where he was involved in concept cars that paved the way for design icons like the first-generation Audi TT and the Volkswagen New Beetle. As for his Ford resume, it's extensive.
Mays joined the company in 1997 as design director for Ford, Lincoln, Mercury and Mazda, as well as the Premier Automotive Group (Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar and Aston Martin). He was heavily involved in the Ford Fusion, Focus, Fiesta, Taurus, F-150 and Mustang, while also contributing to concept cars like the Atlas, Evos, 427, Forty-Nine, Shelby GR-1, Lincoln MKZ and the MKC.
