I have a 73 and two 79's so I am torn between them. I like the looks of both. The 73 looks like its staring at you ready to kill. I like that alot lol.

My bang on favorite is the 77, with amber lenses.

I started out liking the 78/79 better, until I bought a 77, which grew on me to slowly become my favorite.

I'm surprised the 78/79's aren't winning! A black '73 w/ bumper guards started my dent side obsession, so I'll have to say that's my favorite. The '79 F100 Trailer special I'm putting together has been swapped to the '73 grill. The hot rod I'm building might go either way though. Black truck with either a silver '73 shell or a body colored '79 shell and a bar in the middle (like in the Ed White drawing).

I have a 77 that I converted the front grill to a 79 cause I thought it looked better.
Now that I am rebuilding the truck I decided that I like the 77 with black headlight surrounds best. (sold the 79 setup already in case anyone was going to ask)

I like a 76 with clear park lights. The 73-75 is also a really nice look.

Well considering I own 3 79's I'd figure you could guess what my favorite is. IMO Ford built the best year last, 79.

I am just finishing my 76 restoration and just took the 78 off and put the 76 grill on. I like them both equally I think but if I had to choose now that the 76 is on the truck I am going to have to say the 76.

I like the look of the 73-77 best. Probably because after owning my truck for 18 years now I've gotten used to the look of the 76 grille. What can I say? It's the grille of my dreams...lol.

Anyone ever see a 78/79 Bronco with an 73-77 grille? I never have, I think it would be kinda cool.
