F150 super cab 4x4

I bought this 1978 f150 4x4. I only saw it in pictures before buying it, but I stole it at $500! It runs good, and drives good. It has a 351m and a 4 speed. It's ugly though.. It has brand new 31" tires..

Is this truck worth fixing up? I haven't seen many super cabs, so I am just curious...

Depends on whether you are shooting for a 20 foot job or an up close job (does it look good from 20 foot away or up close?). If you got a new passenger fender and door, it would be pretty darn easy to do a 20 foot job on it and make it look pretty nice. I think it doesn't look bad even as is from the photos. For that price, a full running 4x4 truck... you scored pretty good, I'd say.

Nice truck, especially for the money!

I too think you scored large. Once my tax return comes in I'm buying the same truck, except mine isn't on 31"s (235) and I don't have a dual tank. I'm paying $1,500 (Canadian) for mine. All in all I think you and I have the best trucks ever made!...too early for that claim lol?

$500 for a running,driving and 4x4 In a super cab. Not sure what they are worth there but in Canada you already got a 1500-2000 dollar truck just by photos. I'd say save it and like said above just give it a 20ft job, make it nice but not perfect and it will be worth it in my opinion. Id would have jumped at that deal in a heart beat.

Good luck with your decision

It's about a 50 footer, the bed and lower cab has rust, and there is quite a bit of body damage to the passanger side!

Tested the 4 wheel drive today. It works

Mud hides the body damage, just keep it dirty.
