1973-1979 F-350 Trailer specials also had a 140 wheelbase like the F-350 Super Camper specials. Infact a lot of people mistake F-350 Trailer Specials with 140WB for SCS's.

Welcome to FTE! A friend of mine had a late 70's F250 Supercab long bed he bought new. I can't recall how it was badged. Had the 460 though. I only saw it a handful of times. I'll have to ask him.

ford trailer special

ok to those who do not know camper, ranch&farm, and trailer specials were like getting a ford factory tow package, or camper package or factory tool box. the add some stuff and beef up suspension. they made trailer specials for most broncos and f-series trucks with a whole assortment of motors.

Of course. Keep in mind these were '70 only. There was also a '70-'72 Heavy Duty Special.
Ford loved the word "special" and "super" in the '70s, they used Super and Special on everything.







Note how similar these are to the same era Camper Special badges.

You have those badges or you found them on the net somewhere?

I have one, a 76, with C6 and 460. they are not rare, but not common either. Someone stole my "trailer special" badge within a week of brinin it home. It pulled a horse trailer for years - great truck if you want to pull something and you can afford the gas.
