Offered For Sale at No Reserve by TED DAVIS AUTO SALES.  (Ted & Seth Davis)

We specialize in clean late model Repairables and Super Duty Ford Trucks. This one had a Repairable Salvage title and was fixed by us. 

It has been inspected by our DMV and now has a West Virginia Reconstructed Title which can be registered like any vehicle with a regular title. 

Certain banks or credit unions will not finance these type titles so please check on that before bidding if you need financing.

We require a $500 deposit by Paypal within 48 Hours and paid in full within 10 days.

NOTE: Please read the full description below on this amazing truck. 

Here we have a 2002 FORD F-450 FLATBED 4X4 with only 79,000 actual miles. The best part is the truck has the 7.3 Liter Power Stroke diesel. This is by far the best engine Ford offered in their trucks.  They have been well proven over the years to go 500,000 miles or more if maintained like this truck was. The other nice thing is most mechanic shops can repair them when something does go wrong unlike the newer diesels with emission controls on them. 

The F-450 is another plus on this truck. They are much heavier built than an F-250 or F-350 with thicker frames, heavy duty suspension, etc. and if you need big brakes and 14 Ply tires for pulling heavier trailers these are superior to any pickup truck or dually. In a lot of states they require this truck for pulling a tandem axle trailer because of the heavier GVW rating it has.

As you can see the truck is in excellent condition for the year with only a few small dings and scratches that we showed in the pictures. 

The truck had right side damage to an enclosed utility box that was on it since new. The Heating and Air Condition company that owned the truck gave us a great history on it when we called them so we proceeded to buy it from the insurance company and repair the truck for our retail lot. 

The enclosed utility body sustained most of the damage so we removed it and replaced it with a brand new Aluma Brand flatbed that has never been used. These are really nice beds. They will never rust and have all LED lights on them. They also have stake pockets for racks and an aluminum head board. 

There was also some light damage on the right cab corner and door so we replaced the door with another white door and repaired the cab corner.

The truck had no frame damage whatsoever and the power train was not touched since it was hit on the right front part of the utility bed and barely caught the cab corner. This came from a light T-bone type hit from someone running a Stop Sign at a low speed. Because the enclosed bed cost so much to replace the other driver's insurance company chose to total the truck so it was issued a Repairable Salvage title.

The truck turned out fantastic and you could never tell it was ever hit since most of the damage was removed with the bed. The work we done was very minor with the only repaired area that required any filler being down low on the right side cab corner. The used white door we had was near perfect and required no repairs at all. 

Once again this truck had very light damage and it still run and drove like a new one before any repairs were made. It starts like a 79K truck should with great battery power and Glow plugs working properly. It also shifts great with good shift pressure unlike a high mileage automatic would. The A/C blows ice cold and everything works 100% on it. It is going to make someone a great truck that will do the job for many years to come and will cost much less than 1/2 of the $60K new prices these days.

The pictures should show it well and we always describe exactly what we know but if you have any questions please give us a call at 304-567-2999 or e-mail us on the listing. Also you are more than welcome to come in person and test drive it. 

NOTE: The mileage may vary with a local test drive from our lot and we also reserve the right to sale the truck and end the auction early if someone local comes in. Otherwise it will run the full seven days and be sold to the highest bidder.

Thanks for looking at our listing and Good Luck bidding. Sincerely, Ted & Seth Davis

Exceptionally rare '65 Ford GT40 Roadster prototype up for auction

Sat, 14 Jun 2014 15:00:00 EST

Think of mid-engined supercars and your mind is bound to gravitate towards Europe, but the United States has been known to make a handful from time to time - exceptional vehicles from the likes of Vector, SSC, Mosler, Hennessey, and Saleen. But long before any of those came around, Ford famously became obsessed with beating Ferrari at its own game, leading to the development of the iconic GT40.
The story is well known, sending Ford to the checkered flag at Le Mans four times in a row in the late 1960s. Ford and Shelby also built over 100 for public consumption, but just four of them were roadsters. Of those only one remains in original condition, and now that exceedingly rare example going up for auction.
Consigned to RM Auctions for its mid-August sale during Pebble Beach weekend in Monterey, California, this 1965 model is the first GT40 Roadster built. It was used as a development and demonstration vehicle for Ford and Shelby. Carroll Shelby himself drove Henry Ford II in this very car during one of many test and demo events, this time held for Ford's board of directors in Los Angeles.

Who sold the most heavy-duty pickups in 2012? investigates

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 08:44:00 EST

Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.
So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
