Re: This settles it: F750 is available with 4x4 option
If I had to guess, I'd say it was a "toy" and got too expensive to keep paying for, bank repo, owner fell on hard times, etc. Looks too custom to be a company work rig.
Yeah the old F-700 4x4's were awfully tough trucks. I looked for one for 2-3 years back in the early '80's, and ended up with an IH1700 4x4 instead. The '80's F-700 4x4's were mean lookin machines and tough as nails. Problem is, they were usually way underpowered with 370/429 gassers. A company here in PA called "Henkels & McCoy" has a bunch of them for pipeline & construction work, as does "Asplundh", a big tree company.
Some day I'd love to get ahold of a late model ('97, '98) "F-Series" 4x4 with a 5.9 Cummins & 6 speed. I think it'd make a nice short-haul, under CDL, go anywhere, 10 or 12' dumptruck.
