A 1973-'76 F-250 4x4 with the factory 300 I6 option. I just never seen one in person and I've been around a lot of Ford trucks.

This is the 79 f350 uncle Ethan was talking about! What a badass truck! If I ever find one in that good condition, in buying it. Even if I have to sell my home! Lol

I have a 1979 f350 monster truck with power windows. My vetrenarian likes making the conversion with 80s ford parts.

Also look at the sunset ford I saw parked at my local junk yard yesterday

I just traded off my rust free 79 supercab long box 4x4 400m auto and the odd thing about this truck is that it's of course an f2/3 type chassis leaf springs in the front HOWEVER it had a Dana 44 high pinion 5 lug in front and a 5 lug ford 9" out back.... Rare???

There is a bicentennial truck I see when I visit my daughter, the shame of it is it was outside all last winter parked on dirt and gravel, Winter in Pittsburgh is very hard on sheet metal

They are so rare. You should see if they want to sell it.

I think a fully optioned 78 F-250 XLT Lariat supercab with front/rear dana 60s and the sno-fighter package. I have seen exactly TWO in my lifetime, one brand new in 78, and another sits in Collis junkyard.


Also, there are old-timers that absolutely SWEAR that some of the 78-79 400M engines came with factory 4 barrels, in extremely limited numbers. I have never seen one personally, that in itself would make it unbelievably rare.
