My 78 ford F250 has all those same options except the black vynal and the rear de-frost, and mine has a locked hood release that you gotta stick the key in to pop the hood...Really a nice truck....Not sure about the rear-end, my gramps(original owner) said it has a posi rear end....

For a rare 73-79, I'd say a 79 F350 4x4, only built 'em one year and all...

I had a '74 F100 Trailer Special with a 460, C6 tranny cooler, oversize radiator. I used it to cut a lot of firewood. Put your right foot down and that truck would go.

Sounds familiar, RUF – I'm not saying my dad's '73 F100 Trailer Special shortbed with a 360 and A/T was rare, but I've never seen another one. Thoughts?

In 1979, I had a Black 1974 F100 4WD Shortbed, with a FE360 2bbl, 4spd with a Granny-Low, and a in/out Transfer case, and Manual Locking Hubs, on 15in wheels. It had Arm-strong steering, Drum Brakes all around.

I was told by many, that it was very uncommon to have a 360 in such short wheel base, rather then the 302 that was offered that year. I bought it off the original owner who was using it for plowing.

He bought it new, it came with a chrome front bumper, which he took off when he got it home, and attached the plow frame on it.

Back then Rear bumpers were and option, and were not state required here.
So you just hung the Plate under the leftrear tail lamp under the tail gate.

In another topic last year (or maybe earlier this year) Number Dummy posted information from a book that said Ford made 30,000-some F350's in '79 and XX% of them (can't remember) were 4-wheel drive. I did the math and it came out to 13-thousand-something F350 4X4's. What I would like to know is how many of those 13,xxx were Supercabs? I'm not going to pay Marti to find out. I would guess maybe only 1/4 to 1/3 of them were Supercabs. It's my opinion that most F350 4X4's were bought by farmers or construction workers back then, and I can't believe that the Supercab would have been that popular with those customers. So, if my guess is right, that would mean somewhere around 4,000 F350 4X4 Supercabs were made, but like I said, that's purely a guess. What do you guys think?

1977 Highboy

I wonder how many 1977 Hiboys were made pre march before they went to the new style, they may be rare for that year.
