This is the USA specification Ford F450 with the Ford engine, imported new from the USA into Australia by VDC Melbourne and converted by them. It is fully loaded with a 6 speed automatic, 6.7 litre V-8 Turbo Diesel engine, full 4-wheel drive yet has all the luxuries of electric, heated leather seats remote keyed access, Smart audio system etc.
It is burgundy in colour and is registered in Victoria till August 2019.
Regularly serviced and braking system recently overhauled with new pads, callipers etc.
Vehicle has done 107,000 kms and has towed our 23 ft. Bushtracker in total comfort. The engine has done only 27,000 km (***see below for the reason why!)
Extras include the ‘top of the range’ Metal Form Industries canopy with 4 drop-down boxes (big enough to take a Honda 2 kva generator). This canopy is fully fitted out with a four drawer storage system, three slides (e.g. fridge, freezer and BBQ), full solar regulating/charging system with 2 solar panels on the cab roof and 3 extra batteries in the canopy, mains charging with a Projecta 50 amp charger, lightweight aluminium shelving and partitioning, Rhino bars, dual battery system and much more.
Extras to make your trip even less stressful include a 200 litre extra fuel tank (340 litres in total), a 160 litre water tank (drive to get water and then top-up your caravan), 2 spare wheels on drop-down brackets (saves heavy lifting), an ARB air-compressor system with air tank, an Air-Safe, very heavy duty, hitch (with 2 air bags and 2 shock absorbers), as well as winch, bull-bar, side-steps, LightForce spot lights, Icom UHF radio, 3 rear cameras and many, many other additions. Tow mode is built-in reducing any concerns with downhill or uphill driving.

TARE 3835
GVM 7484
GCM 11900
After the addition of canopy, tanks, solar etc., the on-road weight is about 5500 which leaves almost 2 tonnes for fuel, boat, outboards etc.
These numbers mean you can load it up and tow heavy trailers LEGALLY.
Ideal for anyone with a heavy caravan and/or boat; we towed our 23 ft. Bushtracker with 2 kayaks on the canopy roof with ease and didn't even feel it was there, when driving.

AND MUCH MORE...... there are too many Extras to name them all……but total cost over $ 70,000.
Ideally suited and LEGAL to tow even the heaviest caravans. Everything is ready to go on that BIG trip, no setting up before you head off!
No need to wait months on dealer lead times and then more time and energy on customization.

Price $135,000

Will upload more photos later.


*** a quick background on the engine mileage:
In Nov 2017 as we were heading to Tasmania, we took the F450 for a service in Melbourne to be told that there was a noise from the engine that all the diagnostic tools and computers of VDC and their agents could not identify. Workshop was booked out till after New Year, they could start investigation by taking engine out in mid-January and by Feb/March we should get the vehicle back. I said that we are too old to wait around for mechanics so the final agreed plan was: fly in a genuine reconditioned replacement engine from Ford USA, employ an extra mechanic, work all hours to have it ready to take to Tasmania on Jan 4th after testing. We spent the December holidaying in NZ, got the vehicle on the date agreed, took it on the ferry to Tasmania and on the return to the mainland drove to WA for several months and then back to Queensland. So now it is 27,000 km with the new engine after major works without a problem. Thanks Harrisons Ford of Melton Vic!
