Hi there Nutty... welcome to the chapter. Do me a favour? Keep an eye out for a 76 or so 4X4 with the 300 six for me.... I can't seem to find one in usable shape...

Thanks from Vancouver.

Thanks Zip... those prices seem to be quite high... also, not much info (on the engines) for several of the trucks. I have a running 76 F250 2X4 which I am told is worth absolutely nothing... so I would think a 4X4 version would be worth maybe $500-1000. A really nice Highboy, perhaps $1500-2000 max. Guess I'm doomed to buy something smaller and much less 'manly'.

Cheers

Mr. Fixit

Thanks Nutty! It's funny how things go, but if you could remember who/where you saw the truck, I'd appreciate it. My 76 F250 with the 460 is way too powerful for my needs (it gets maybe 4-5 mpg). The "big" six with a 4 spd would be ideal for me.

Cheers and thanks again.

It's a low miles Camper Special (460/C6) that I got for $100. She's very rusty - floorboards gone and driver's side cab mount non-existant.
I've driven her exactly 250 kilometers in 2 years. The problem is that the gravel/muddy roads are sometimes not passable with rear drive only, so I need a 4X4.

I don't want to highjack this thread anymore!
