Everyone loves a good “package deal,” especially this time of the year when finances were spread thin due to the holiday shopping season. Well, here’s a truck that comes with a couple of extras!
Where bikes meet trucks, you’ll find the Harley-Davidson special edition of the Ford F-150.
Beginning in 1997, Ford launched the tenth generation of its popular F-150 pickup. This marked a unique era for Ford, because the F-Series lineup was split into two different vehicle families. The medium-duty half-ton trucks were joined by a family of heavy-duty trucks called Super Duty which had unique styling and capabilities. The F-150 took a vastly different approach to design compared to previous trucks (which have since taken on the name “OBS” or Old Body Style). From 1997-onward, the F-150 was notably more round and aerodynamic. Despite the change, it continued to be a top seller.
Beginning in model year 2000, Ford partnered with motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson on limited-edition runs of pickups. The basic architecture came from an extended-cab flareside truck, but additional cosmetic treatment was added to set it apart from the rest. Among its features were a billet grille, 20-inch chrome split-spoke wheels, a tonneau cover, and orange accent striping. This truck is unit number 2,373 of 6,000 total built for the initial year of the collaboration.
Power came from a 5.4-liter V8 that was rated at 260 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. The only available transmission was a four-speed automatic. Today’s feature truck has been driven some, since it shows over 150,000 miles on the odometer, but it is a one-owner truck. Usually when someone keeps a vehicle for over 20 years, it says something about their level of care and commitment.
In order to sweeten the pot when this truck came out, it was offered with accessories like a keychain in a special box as well as a jacket that had the F-150 and Harley-Davidson logos on it. The seller is willing to part ways with both of those items to make this truck a complete package deal. The box shows the truck’s original build date of June 20, 2000, as well as the buyer’s name and the VIN.
The asking price is $25,000 for the truck and its accompanying swag.
