Alright so getting back into the dents...FINALLY!!! Bought a 77 highboy frame sight unseen that will be here tomorrow to do a full build on but I also snagged a 77 F-150 351, power steering and brakes. Dual tanks. 67K original miles. I was told it was the deluxe Ranger package but not sure...have to do some digging on that. It was a one owner truck until the original owner passed away a few months back. I hope I got a good deal lol!!! Gave 3K for it. Seems to run great so far.
When I had body work and paint done to my 76 back in 98, The only kind of new canopy I could get at the time was an aluminum one. When I got a topper for my 95 about 2 years ago, that had changed, I could get a better fitting fiberglass one. The angle of the back of the cab on the dent-sides, is unique from every other pickup. I'd say that canopy is a "LEE" based on the label on the back of it.
After doing some digging the shell must have been added some time later. Seems these shells were used on some mid to late 80's trucks. Found a pic of the stock shells that were available for the dentsides. Posted below in case anyone ever wants to know.
Well maintained original owner trucks like that are rare, good purchase. Got lucky like that myself with the truck in my avatar. Check under the seat for your factory build sheet, hopefully the original paperwork and dealer delivery/inspection sheet was in the glovebox.
