Not a Super Camper Special since its a 78 F350 supercab Lariat, 2 wheel drive, Camper Special. 460 and C6. Pretty straight body but needs interior work. This thread has been a great read. Thank you

Not sure if this counts, because you said camper special, and a 140" wheel base.
But I have a 76 Supercab Longbed Trailer Special 2wd with a 166" wheel base. 390 4bbl and a C6 in it.

Sorry, '73-'76 F-350 Super Camper Specials & '77-'79 F-350 Camper Specials & F-350 Trailer Specials on the 140" WB are ONLY conventional cab, 2WDs, NO exceptions were made. These trucks have many special features, the most prominent being the spare tire door on the passenger of the bedside.
Here is a picture of mine.

That's kinda cool, but nope don't have that. Mines also a 150, not a 350. Although mine does have heavy duty leaf springs and dual piston front calipers.

Cool. I've got the best of both worlds, I have both a F-250 Super-Cab (Wish it was a 350) & a '76 F-350 Super Camper Special. Let us not clutter this thread with frivolous chat about common trucks.

No 1975/79 F150 came from the factory with dual piston caliper front disc brakes.

All 1973/79 F100's, all 1975/79 F150's and some 1973/79 F250's (depends on the GVW) came with single piston caliper front disc brakes.

1973/79 F350's on the 140" wheelbase: 1973/76 Super Camper Special / 1973/79 Trailer Special / 1977/79 Camper Special. Ford dropped "Super" after 1976.

So as to not confuse the buyer that they were buying a Super-Cab, which had just come out two years prior, in 1974.
Speaking of 1974, I drove the '74 today. I also got an insurance quote of $615 a year. (Can you say rip-off?) I need to get a topper & get those commercial plates off the truck, the registration is $100 I don't have and is due in October.

What in the world are you b!tchin about? $615.00 a year for insurance for an 18 yr old that lives in CA is a roaring bargain! Are you sure it's one year and not 6 months? I assume this is liability only.

You know doncha that once you remove the commercial plates that you cannot have so much as a hammer in the bed.

No commercial plates, no tools of any kind. If a cop sees tools, you'll get an expensive ticket, I kid you not.

I am positive that it is for a year, the rate for 6 months is $342.

(Ignore the Econoline, I assume that is a typo.)

You were quoted the rate based on an Econoline, not the Stupor Duper Stupor Cab you actually own.

Better verify the rate, cuz it could quadruple.

My yearly full coverage insurance went up 5 bucks to $1055.00 a year, when I traded the '08 ConFusion in on the '11 F150 oversized elephantine behemoth.

I'm 50 years older than you w/a perfect driving record dating back to 1959.

Filled up the tub yesterday, $4.29 a gallon, total was 90 bucks. Your Stupor Cab will be about the same. Maybe you should buy a Toi-let-a RAV4 like "Squire" Don did.

I know. I scared some local high school girls today, the truck is so loud.
Pain in the *** to do a U-turn.
I don't want a newer vehicle, more expensive to insure, register and buy parts for.
I will call the insurance agent back and verify that is the correct amount. I'm gonna pitch a fit if it doubles because that's an F-250 not a E-250.
I also have a perfect record dating back two years or so, maybe 3.

wingnut805,I am still interested in the fuel tank.I dropped my 77 super camper off in fort lauderdale last week and picked up a rust free 79 F250 two wheeler.I just couldn't justify hauling yours 1,500 miles just for a fuel tank.I am interested in the tank and sending unit only though.

I have a white SCS door off of a '74. It is rustfree, however it has a dent. Which I think could be pounded out easily.
Is anyone interested?
