73-79 Stock Pictures

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find pictures of an all stock 73 f100. Maybe in the different paint schemes that were offered that year. I am trying to make mine original but I need some direction first. Ive been searching google for a couple days but haven't had much luck. Thanks.

Don't have a pic of the tailgate I will have to get one. The tailgate has the aluminum trim piece on it that says Ford on it. Also upper and lower trim pieces that break up the paint colors.

Anybody notice yet that it was ordered without a passenger side mirror? I guess I will add one for saftey reasons even though I don't want to. Not looking forward to drilling two holes in a perfect door.

Here's a picture of my '73 Ranger and my bud's '76 Explorer

Some other potential useful information:

The buyer could choose:
No tu-tone - solid color.
Accent tu-tone - only the upper portion of the cab is painted a secondary color.
Deluxe Tu-Tone - the inside area of the race track moulding is painted a secondary color; the rest the main color.
Combination Tu-Tone - combining the accent & tu-tone to get the effect you see pictured above.

Also, you may want to think about trim...

EXPLORER: was a limited edition Trim and Option Group that was added to the other trim levels. Was only avaliable a few months out of the year, and didn't feature in the main brochure.
You could have, "Custom Explorers" or "Ranger Explorers" as a concequence.

CUSTOM: Baseline. Although you could order it basicly how you wanted it. A Highly optioned Custom is rare, but there are a few out there.

RANGER: One step above custom. Came standard with the chrome trim pictured above.

RANGER XLT: 1973-1975 Best you could Get. 1976-1979 One step below Best.

RANGER XLT Luxury Group: 1976-1977. Best you could get for your XLT. Later became Ranger Lariat.

RANGER LARIAT: 1978-1979

Race Track trim was standard on 1977 Ranger XLT, and 1978-1979 Ranger Lariats. Also avaliable with the Deluxe Tu-Tone Option.

There was also Freewheeling Packages, and the 1979 Indy Pace Truck.

More information can be seen in the following brochures.

1976 Brochure:
Auto Brochures

1977 Brochure:
Hot Cars

1979 4x4 Brochure:
79 Front Cover

1979 Brochure:
1979 Ford Truck Brochure
Hope this helps! Good luck with your project!
