I have 76 in green paint, FE block (360, 4SPD, HD, 3/4 ton, helper springs, Tow, etc). It has the same hood ornament and striping as yours. Runs great! gotta clean up the body, (rusty work truck).
By jarmeister

By 79 shortbox


Very nice truck bumper to bumper specially the paint job, i have a 77 supercab and it was also my father's, i restore it too, just a little advice change the steering wheel, i put in mine one from a 1980 E-150 van with wood trim an cruise control. Tambien puedes ponerle un volante deportivo GRANT se veria genial, Saludos!!

You certainly have the colour right Isaac. That looks very nice. I believe you have to get 3 things right (colour/stance/wheels) and you have done all that well. Would you mind giving me the blue paint code? I have a '75 that is close to paint stage, but I am a mile away from deciding on a colour. Excellant Isaac. Cheers Phillip03
By Phillip03


Isaac, that is a beautiful paint scheme. I have started a resto. job on my grandfather's 76 F-250. Been in the family since new. I hope it turns out as clean as yours. Great job.

Truck looks great.
By MBBFord


Where did you get the original striping patterns? I have the exact model only mine is light blue. I resently got it painted and need to get the stripes back on. Truck looks great! I have my grandfather's old '77 F100 with a 400 M-block. When I got it last year it had 39,000 original miles. It had set in his drive for about 15 years.
By tbcmusiconline


Very nice truck. I'm starting to restore a 77 F150 4WD my uncle had owned since 1978 and just gave to me. It was exactly the same color as yours. My question is the same as someone else asked: how did you recreate the stripes? That one I haven't figured out yet. Thanks!! Great truck!!!

Sweet ride!

Great job on this truck. Glad you didn't sell it.
