Readers' Rides: Built Ford Tough

Automotive Traveler readers show off their favorite rides, starting with Richard Drake's 1967 Ford F-250 Camper Special.

Automotive Traveler readers are proud of their rides, none more so than Orange, California resident Richard Drake. Enjoying retirement from a career in law enforcement, he now has time to dedicate to his 1967 Ford F-250 Camper Special.

Drake is the vehicle's second owner, having purchased it back in June 1980. Stolen from in front of his house in 1991 (and subsequently retrieved), the 1967 Ford underwent a three-year restoration starting in 2006. Drake's classic truck is currently featured on PickupTrucks.com, as well as in the Automotive Traveler/Fotki Image Gallery, where we offer a full album of photos. As a bonus, you can even view a copy of the original 1967 Ford Truck Brochure and imagine picking out all the options at your local Ford dealer back in 1967.--Richard Truesdell
