1977 Ford F-150 Is One Seriously Clean Survivor
This nicely trimmed, well-optioned F-150 looks like it’s been lovingly cared for over the years. Because it has!
It wasn’t that long ago when finding a super clean, mostly original ’70s Ford truck was akin to scoring a needle in a haystack. But now that collectors are beginning to take note of this once forgotten generation, we’re beginning to see more and more gems surface. This particular 1977 Ford F-150, which we spotted on eBay, is a shining example of that. Clearly, the previous owner of this beauty truly cared about his truck!
This amazing ride has only a claimed 113,000 miles on the odometer, and it sure shows. Its two owners lovingly cared for the nicely optioned ride, which sports an arrow-straight body and shiny original paint. And with Ranger XLT trim and four-wheel drive, it’s no bare-optioned stripper like many ’70s pickups. The seller also unsurprisingly claims that everything works fantastically, and that the original 351/4-speed drivetrain hums along like new.
Power steering is another nice option on this Dentside, along with power brakes and dual factory gas tanks. Really the only signs of wear are a couple of tears in the bench seat. And maybe some use in the bed area. But obviously, those aren’t anything that detract from the incredible condition of this 1977 Ford F-150. Heck, if it was us, we’d probably just recover the seat and call it a day.
But perhaps the most incredible thing about this old Ford isn’t just its solid condition. Because we can’t believe that anyone actually left old school hub caps and skinny tires on a four-wheel drive truck from the ’70s. Those little tires look completely out of place in an era when bigger is better. But it’s also somewhat refreshing to see! Toss on a rarely seen silver paint job and a nice option sheet, and you’ve got one of the nicest (mostly) original 1977 Ford F-150 examples you’ll ever lay eyes on!
