The Lisburn Community Fire Company is offering its utility truck for sale by sealed bid:
For Sale: 1986 Ford F-250 extended cab, 8’ bed, pickup truck. It features dual fuel tanks, gas fired V-8, with an automatic transmission, four-wheel drive with manual locking hubs and floor shifter. It also has a professionally mounted hitch receiver, and a trailer light connection (all working and solid) with 73,289 miles asof October, 2014 when the truck was still being used by the department. The vehicle is garage kept and only has a few bumps and bruises. The cab is solid, with some rust on the bed. The tailgate functions, and needs some work. Vehicle is inspected, road-worthy, and without any known major mechanical issues. The engine runs smoothly, the transmission shifts without hesitation, and the truck will drive highway speeds. With regular use, it starts without a problem. The four-wheel drive works well, and the truck sports four good tires and a spare. It features a full bench seat in the front and back. The upholstery is worn but intact, and the cab is without any known water leaks. It has a large tool box bolted in the front of the bed: full width box, approximately 18″ deep, 24″ wide. The vehicle has a two tone paint job, white over orange, with red interior. The bed has a custom cut rubber mat liner, and the steel beneath it is solid.
The truck is available for inspection by appointment, and, due to insurance regulations, can only be driven by a member of the Department. To make an appointment, please call the fire house at (717) 766-3994. It is not required to see the vehicle to bid on it.
The vehicle is being sold “as is.” and while every effort has been made to provide an accurate description, the unknown problems may exist.
