I seen a truck the other day that I did not think existed. It was what appeared to be a 1975 F250 Highboy standard cab short bed. It had the 8 lug D44 and D60 with a divorced np205. It also had the granny low 4spd. The only think odd was that someone had swapped in a 302 which was obvious that it was swapped but did not appear that the rest of the drivetrain had been swapped.
Are these common? I was just curious since I had not seen one. Let me know what you think.
My uncle actually has about a 1963 F-250 4x4 short bed standard cab. I think he said it was a military issue or something, its an awesome truck. Needs a lot of work but does run, too bad its sitting outside. I can get the VIN if anyone is interested.

Does the VIN have a special charicter for a Highboy?
There is no special character in the VIN to designate a Highboy. You can do a search for VIN numbers and the VIN break point has been discussed before
I assume they did not make a F150 Highboy...correct?
Correct, only Highboys were on a 250 chassis.
The badges are missing on this truck and that is why I was asking.
It has all the correct steering components with the correct Highboy front end. Someone would have gone through a lot of trouble to switch all the crap over to a short bed chassis.
Someone could of shortened the frame. I knew a guy back in the 80's that shortened a 3/4 ton 79 to make it a shortbed.
I am going to try and get the vin off the truck and see what it will tell me. I will let you know what I find out.
