“Ford Super Camper Specials are rare, unusual, and still cheap” – Hagerty, June 2018

“Made for serious campers looking for extra hauling capacity, a compliant ride, and conveniences like a built-in pigtail for easy trailer hookups and a sliding rear bumper that adjusted to aftermarket camper overhangs, the Super Camper Special was a plug-and-play camper conversion dream. Ford started by increasing the wheelbase to an astounding 140 inches on a narrower eight-inch-tall, one-ton frame, with a single Dana 70 full-floating rear axle and twin I-beam front. Available only as a two-wheel drive single cab, the extended wheelbase made for a stable, better-riding truck with less camper intrusion, which eliminated the space normally reserved for the spare behind the rear axle. Ford fixed this with a secret compartment and detachable body panel on the passenger side of the bed for spare tire storage.”

Offered here is a 1977 Ford F250 Camper Special in blue over blue, one of 3,058 produced for the model year (based on Hagerty data). Showing 74,187 miles on its odometer, the truck has traveled fewer than 1,700 miles-per-year on average since new. All-original, and in solid overall condition, this Camper Special is indeed a rare find.

The F250's medium-blue metallic exterior paint has been refreshed. The finish is very good across all body panels (including the extra-long cargo bed) with uniform shine and no significant flaws on exterior panels; surface rust is present on the majority of the cargo-bed floor. The chrome front bumper, grille, body-side trim, window trim, cargo-box tie-downs, tailgate trim, and West-Coast-style side mirrors (to allow views past a wide camper body) are all properly shiny with a minimum of patina and no obvious damage. The painted rear bumper shows light surface rust in places. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Cabin glass (including on the sliding rear window) and all lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. All factory badging—including the “Ford” identification in the grille and on the tailgate, the “F250 Ranger XLT” badges on the cowl, and the “Camper Special” badge on the front fenders—is correctly in place and in very good condition. The rear-bumper electrical connection and lower storage compartment in the cargo-box side (parts of the Camper Special package), remain in place and functional. Factory, silver-painted, 8-lug, 16-inch steel wheels are mounted with Hankook® DynaPro HT tires. (A spare and four additional tires with chrome full wheel covers are also included in the sale.)

The interior of the truck is in very well-maintained condition overall, though the blue carpeting shows wear and staining. The bench seat vertically pleated blue-fabric upholstery is in excellent condition, and the woodgrain-trimmed dashboard (part of the XLT package equipment) is similarly excellent. Door trim—also upgraded in the XLT package—incorporates blue, pleated-look vinyl, chrome bits, and roll-up window cranks. The stock blue steering wheel also wears woodgrain trim and frames a driver-focused instrument cluster with heat and air-conditioning controls and the factory AM-FM push-button stereo radio mounted to the right. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. A “Ranger XLT” emblem faces the front passenger.

Under the hood, the 7.5-liter Ford V8 exhibits extensive surface rust (notably on its air cleaner as well as some other components) not affecting performance. Viewed from below, the chassis is complete, straight, and undamaged.

The F250's original identification and data tags remain in place.

While the more than 130 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '77 F250 in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

Back in the day, Ford advertised these advantages for the Camper Special trucks: “Specially made for 11- or 12-foot camper bodies… new 140-inch wheelbase… Twin-I Beam front suspension… new stabilizer bars… new 10,000-pount GVW rating… and more” ideal for “the interstate and out in. the boondocks.” This well-maintained blue F250 Camper Special is ready to deliver on all that for its next owner.
