This is a monument to pickup-truckdom. A OBS F-350 Dually Custom Conversion. Translation- OBS is Original Body Style, a term that refers to Ford full size trucks built between 1980 and 1997. The F series trucks are segmented by tonnage- 150=1/2 Ton, 250= 3/4 Ton, and the mighty 350=1 Ton. Dually means it has 4 tires on the rear axle. Back in the 80's and 90's- a truck was just that, a truck- and pretty spartan. No King Ranch or Escelades. However- there did exist a couple companies that took those base trucks and added Lazy-Boy size captains chairs, lights, paint schemes, and lots of wood trim to dress them up. Centurion was one of those companies, and this truck is the Pacifica. All that truck bling added about a 3rd to the price- however in the current landscape of $100,000+ trucks and SUV's... that's not too bad. This one lived on the west coast, which is why it has no rust. It also has less than 50,000 miles- making it a perfect candidate as a collector vehicle for the Barn, and rounds out the collection of three OBS Ford trucks.
