I do want a 4x4, I dont have much preference about the engine, I would like to find a good straight body and am willing to pay a little extra for a clean one this time around. My last one was a big project.
Maybe my memory is failing, but I believe the only supercabs offered in a 4x4 configuration were in 78 and 79, of the 73-79 era. There have been plenty of swaps, and retrofits, as well as changing of the grilles from the 78-79 to something earlier, but I think the 4x4's were those two years only in the SC's.
As for engines, if it's a supercab 4x4, I'm pretty sure the biggest engine they offered was the 400. Most have since swapped in a 460, or whatever other plant preference they have, but the 400 was the biggest stock offering for those two years.

1977 F250 4x2, 460 c6 kind of rusty for 100.
1976 F250 4x2, 390 np435 clean, from New Mexico 200.
The 1979 is about to fall off the frame due to rust,
rear cab corners, front cab corners, floor pans, drip rails, b pillars, door thersholds and rear cab mounts are SHOT. The frame is rusty, the shocks fell off, and two of the rear cross members are gone due to rust. Fenders, doors, and bed have been replaced.
If you find one, Check out the frame and cab roof. Everything else is the same as a std cab.
Sorry for the thread hijack, but since this thread is here I might as well ask a question I have been wondering for a while, but never cared enough to post a new thread...
I am interested in building a 2wd Supercab, but really want a SHORT bed. I don't recall ever seeing a short bed supercab - were they made?
