This 1976 F-250 Is Close to Ford Truck Perfection
It’s impossible to come to a consensus on what Ford truck perfection actually is. Everybody has their own favorite based on personal taste and past experiences. But if we had to take a vote here at Ford-Trucks.com, I’d be willing to bet that the vast majority would vote for something built in the 70’s at the very least. Perhaps something with a tasteful set of larger-than-factory rolling stock as well. A lot of people like red, too. And everybody loves a highboy!
Behold your (close to) perfect truck. This 1976 F-250 checks a bunch of boxes for a lot of people with its highboy stance, shiny red paint, and big ‘ole wheels and tires. It may be a long bed, but you can look past that minor detail when you consider just how doggone pretty it is.
The truck currently sports a 390 block, which is said to be a replacement for the original engine. Gears are row-you-own courtesy of a 4-speed, but thankfully this is a factory front disc brake truck. The interior is just as clean as the body, and every bit as red.
So if we were to take votes on what constitutes Ford truck perfection, I’d be willing to bet that this ’76 would get a healthy number of votes. It’s one of the cleanest highboys around, it has one of the better motors in it. Oh, and it has a killer stance. Does it really get any better than that?
