By the looks of the air cleaner it looks like a 285 and the transmission has been swapped or a 315 if the 9 speed is stock but it also looks like it has a charge air cooler too. anyway that is one nice looking R model, ,it looks like he takes pride in it.

yup, with that air cleaner with a roadranger trans im thinkin it might be an R612 with a 300+ or someone put a roadranger in it behind a 285. either way it has an air cooler and looks like he grille is bolted to it?

Beautiful!

Keeping the exterior nice is one thing but it's not often you see an interior in such good condition.

yup agree, gotta admit I hated the tan interior when its dirty but when its clean and tidy it looks pretty sharp. never really cared for the gray interior or the two spoke rubber steering wheel.

Doylestown is 5 miles up the road from my house. I'll keep my eyes peeled for this thing. Surprised I've never seen it around before.

A real good looking R model.. Did you ask him if he would bring it to York or Macungie???

Will be up in the Doylestown area at my daughters for Turkey.. Will keep my eyes open.

Great job tracking this one down! I've also seen it in the Danville area.

What a sweet ride. That guy deserves so much credit for keeping a working truck like that in such beautiful condition. And, the steering wheel isn't even cracked! I too like that wheel much better than the later two spoke black wheel.

Beautiful truck. Thanks for tracking it down.
