production numbers??? rare?

well it's not rare but i have a 75 f-150 ranger(longbed). it is a factory 460. does anyone have approximate build numbers comparing numbers sold with what engines. i'm guessing this was the least ordered motor for the f-150? thanx fellas! ps. best $200 i've ever spent.

Nice score for $200, unless there's some mechanical issues that looks to be a $1,200-$1,800 truck.

AFAIK, This is all the production numbers publicized.

1975 F150 Regular Cab Pickup: 80,917 / 1975 F150 Super Cab Pickup: 20.958.

To discover how may F150's were sold with the 460 4V in 1975, how many were 2WD or 4WD, how many were Rangers, and etc., you'll have to contact martiauto.com.

You can also order a duplicate copy of your original window sticker and the specific build sheet for your truck, but there's a fee to get all this info.

In the late 1980's, Ford was going to throw ALL this information into the trash!

Marti, a Mustang enthusiast in Phoenix AZ found out about this, got it ALL.

FoMoCo can provide you with a build sheet for your truck, there is no charge for this service. It takes weeks to get it, however.

Since Ford has none of this info, they have to get it from Marti.
