When most of us think of off-road trucks, we picture aggressive tires, suspension lifts, and other big mods to make sure we get stuck further out in the sticks than we would in a stock truck. Well, there are still a lot of stockers out on the trails too-even ones that are verging on 50 years old! We were 50 miles outside of the closest real town, on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere when we ran across Paul Ellis in his almost completely stock 1965 Ford F-250 Camper Special. Paul's had the truck ever since 1968, and it's served him well since the day he bought it. To date, the truck has more than 459,000 miles on it, and still hauls Paul and his camper into the sticks whenever he wants to get out of town. Paul has driven this '65 Ford everywhere from the Yucutan Peninsula to the Eastern tip of the United States and back. Needless to say, Paul and this truck have some history together. That's just cool.
