Stayin’ Alive: 1977 F-100 is a Disco Era Darling

By -


The mid 70’s to early 80’s saw America become obsessed with extravagant fashion, large mustaches, and disco music. Thankfully, not quite everything that emerged from this era was as horrific.  During a time when cars were, um, just bad, Ford was at least producing some of the best trucks ever to roll off their assembly line.

This 1977 F-100 is a classic example that captures that unforgettable time perfectly.  The stock lines are best left alone, and in this case they have been.  Perfectly accented by a two tone silver and red paint job, it’s a throwback to an era most would like to forget.  Unless you were into the Bee Gees and rocked a thick mustache, of course.


Beauty is more than skin deep on this short bed, four wheel drive model as well.  This is a well optioned truck, with power brakes and steering, air conditioning, and front disc brakes.  A 351 gets the oversized wheels and tires rolling, while a 3-speed automatic is controlled by a column shifter that resides in a perfectly stock black interior.


This truck comes from an era in history that was quite forgettable in a lot of ways – from fashion to music to the under powered and poorly made cars rolling off assembly lines everywhere.  Ford trucks from this period in time bucked that trend, and prices are beginning to match their reputation.  If you’re looking to get in before the market gets even hotter, this ’77 is a great way to do it.
