1996 Ford F-350 XL Reg Cab Dual Rear Wheel

5.8L V8 OHV 16V Gasoline Engine.
The truck is NOT four wheel drive.
The truck does have AC, however, it has not been used, charged, or serviced in years.
Flat bed with custom made lawn mower "cradle" and ramp on the back.
Cloth bench seat in overall fair shape. One decent sized hole near the passenger side.
Manual door locks. Manual windows.
11,000 lb GVWR

The Good:
- The truck starts up on the first try without ether, even after sitting for months. May need a new battery.
- The engine is healthy and strong. (See a video of the truck running here: CLICK.
- The truck runs, drives, and brakes without any issue. (See a quick "ride-along" video here: CLICK.
- The underside of the truck is in very good shape. This was a "summer only" lawn care truck, so there's very minimal rust.
- The rockers and cab corners are all in good shape, and not rotted away like other similar 1990s trucks from the rust belt.

The Bad:
- The tires are wore and will likely need replaced sooner than later... especially the inside duals.
- The windshield is cracked from what appears to have been a rock impact that spidered out.
- The passenger side mirror is cracked.
- Turn signals, brake lights and headlights all function, however, none of the running (marker) lights work.
- The speedometer doesn't work, and as such, it's suspected the odometer stopped as well.
- The ABS light is on.
- The radio functions, however the LCD readout for the radio/clock is scrambled and not readable.

^ None of these issues affect the functionality of the truck, and since it was used off-road only in it's later years, they were ignored and deemed cosmetic and/or non-critical problems.


The last time the truck was actually plated and used on the road was back in 2009.
It was then placed in off-road use only spraying ditch-lines, moving lawn equip around, etc up until around 2012.
And then from that point onward, the truck was used only on occasion for special details or very light duty work.

The truck has dual fuel tanks. The main tank (front) is larger, and was used primarily. The rear tank is small, and was used only as a reserve.
The fuel level in the front tank is down to about 1/16th. Unfortunately with the cost of dinosaur blood these days, you're on your own.
The rear tank is registering on the dash as being completely full, however, if there is anything in there, it's very old gas, and not suggested to be used.

The reserve price will not be revealed. Don't ask.
The truck has a clear Indiana title. Sale includes 3 keys.


In person pickups are strongly encouraged. In person inspections are also welcomed and encouraged... by appointment only.
Third party pickups (family members, friends, uship.com carriers, etc) are also welcomed as long as we're aware of what's going on.
If you're shipping the truck, you're responsible for making all of the arrangements. We will not assist in shipping the truck.

The five (5) business day window for posting payment will be strictly enforced. There will be no leeway on this.
The ten (10) business day window for asset removal will also be strictly enforced. There will not be extensions granted for pickup.
If you're unable to pay for the asset and/or remove it within the timelines set forth in this auction don't bid.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Hello Where is the nearest airport to you? Thanks (6/9/22 6:45 PM)
A: The nearest airport that has regular incoming commercial flights would be Fort Wayne International, but I've heard it can be pricey to fly into Fort Wayne. We've also had people fly in at Toledo Express Airport, as well as Indianapolis International Airport and Detroit Metropolitan. (6/9/22 9:41 PM)
Q: BEST ! AD !! EVER !!! (6/17/22 10:33 AM)
A: Thank you! Have a fabulous weekend! (6/17/22 1:57 PM)
Q: What are the dimensions of the mower platform on the back of the bed (7/5/22 8:32 PM)
A: Approx 53x84 inches. (7/6/22 3:40 PM)
Q: Is this truck a relisted can it be drove from this location (7/26/22 5:56 PM)
A: It was relisted because the reserve wasn't met. The tires have flat spots from the truck sitting, which is why it's advised the tires be replaced. But in short, yes (although not advised) it CAN be driven away from the location. (7/27/22 9:42 AM)
Q: What kind of transmission does this truck have? (8/11/22 9:32 PM)
A: The truck has an automatic transmission. (8/11/22 9:47 PM)
Q: Let me be specific does this truck has a C6 transmission or some other model (8/11/22 10:38 PM)
A: Based on the pan shape and the bolt count we were able to determine that it is indeed a C6 transmission. (8/12/22 10:50 AM)
Q: In your thorough and honest description, it mentions the running lights don't work. Would that just be for the bed, or the entire truck. Thanks for relaying so many facts. A rare quality!!! (8/17/22 6:40 PM)
A: None of the running lights work, this includes the bed, cab lights, and front markers. We haven't chased down the issue because the truck was never used at night, but I'd venture to say it's probably something simple like a fuse or a relay. The headlights, turn signals, and brake lights all work just fine. Thank you for your interest. (8/17/22 7:36 PM)
Q: why again ? (9/6/22 12:12 PM)
A: The high bid was too low... Sorry about that... Should we have asked your permission to relist it? (9/6/22 12:22 PM)
