I emailed Ford yesterday after reading this and I asked if I could get the build sheet. Got the email back from them saying they would be more than happy to help me and to send my address, city, state and model. I sent them the vin first and they asked for this info to better help. This is cool and really amazing they are willing to help on something like this. The New Ford maybe?? lol

Just for fun, I went to the nada web site and ran my tuck through. It said the "original MSRP" was $4561. I remember when my dad bought his 77 F150 explorer new, he paid $5200, or $5500, I can't remember which it was now. His has a 351m, and C6 as mine has a 300 I6 and C4. Other than that they are the same.

NADA said my low retail is $2520, average retail $6435, and high retail $8775. It also gives descriptions of what the condition should be for each level which does not include daily drivers.

So here is my letter from Ford and my truck for those of you in this thread who may not have seen it, or the Ford letter.

Hey Roller,

What e-mail address did you use for Ford?
Figure it couldn't hurt to try this myself.

Thanks,
G.

Friesian-Bronco, go to the Ford website then click on Ford. Go to the bottom of the page and click contact us. Then go to vehicles and sevice and click on Ford. Select general corp. and put in what you are looking for. The link will not work unless you do it this way. I just tried to send to you.

After reading these posts, I emailed them yesterday and they already got back to me saying they'll send the history and build report for my 1977. Pretty cool.

Base price for a F-350 Supercab 4x4 was $9305.40

400 engine, $176.60

Upgrade the rear axle, to a limited slip, $185.00.

Ranger Lariat package, $792.90

Tie down hooks, $41.80

Toolbox, $73.30

A/c, $578.10

Clearance lights, $37.20

Convenience group package, $54.30

Tinted glass, $34.00

Light group package, $47.40

Radio with factory CB, $337.40

Cruise control, $148.30

Tilt column, $78.10

Rear bench seat, $204.90

Vanity mirror, $52.30

Flip out side windows, $76.90

Sliding rear window, $88.10

Bedside rails, $69.00

Chrome grille, $41.80

GT bar (roll bar), $104.50

Push bar, $68.90

Driving lights, $114.50

Low mount mirror, $55.00

Wheel well molding, $23.10

Simulated leather wheel, $68.90

Camper special package, $245.60

These are most of the options that come to mind. These are actual prices for the 79 model year. I also didn't add in any mechanical items, Brakes, radiator upgrade, fuel tank and so on.

Just the above options on this truck and it comes to $13103.30, so for less than 15K you could outfit a truck pretty well.

Thanks Roller!

Anybody know what minimum/average wage was in '79 ?
I'm trying to get a grasp on whether that 13 to 15 grand was waaaaay up there or not..

Makes ya think though, whenever you have to pass up a perfectly restored/rebuilt high option truck for around 10K 'cause ya can't swing it, and thinking its a bit steep... (been there, done that).

you wouldn't happen to have the numbers for a XLT Bronco in 79, would ya Ranger?

I think 13-15 grand would have been way up there in 79 because when my dad bought his 76 brand new it was like $6000 and wasn`t no plane jane. I believe between 76 and 79 there was a lot of inflation going on too though.

Base price for a Bronco was $7535.25

Ranger XLT package, $636.90

When I bought my 79 F-150 new my payment was $168.00. I don't remember the terms on it and if I remember the price was around $8600.00 with 2K down. I worked at a gas station part time and made $6.00 per hour.

Base price on a F-150 4x4 was:

117" WB, $6470.60

133" WB, $6546.60
