I have a 1976 F-250 4x4, 54,000 original miles. It has the Bicentennial package from Ford. I am in the process of rebuilding the motor due to it sitting idle for so long. the next step is the body, but I am unsure if I should try to resurrect the decal package that originally came with it? I have searched all over the internet and check with local shop about how to find them, all have come up empty or going to a sign shop for custom, hand done, decals. Any recommendations out there of how to proceed....OR where I could find some original decals? Oh and the body has to small rust spots and is dent free, hence why I have to get it repainted causing the original decals that are there, faded and cracked, to have to be removed and possibly replaced. I would attach a pic, i'm just not sure how.
There was a blue and white edition, and a white edition.
Available on all '76 StyleSide F-100 through F-350s EXCEPT The Super Camper Special...Darn!
(I've been thinkin' of turnin' my '76 F-350 Super Camper Special into one, I even got my hands on the Emblem!)
My Dad ordered a brand new 1976 F-250 Super Cab, 2 wheel drive with the bicentennial package. It was a white truck with the gold stripe/eagle down the sides, and the same red, white and blue cloth seat as pictured above, the back flip seat was plain blue vinyl.
There was a de-lay at the factory when it was being built because they had'nt planed on the extra piece of decals for the super cab. In 1979 that truck was in an accident and the Ford dealer had a hard time locating the decals back then.
I still have the "1776-1976" eagle that was on the glove box door-It's on my fridge door now !!
I was Googling the Bicentennial Edition Ford pick ups to show a friend that had never seen or heard of them when I found this thread and had to join up just to talk about Dad's rare truck !!
Thanks for letting me share it with you.
