1977 Ford F-150 Is Pure, Simple Badassery
This basic but beautiful 1977 Ford F-150 proves that you don’t need flashy paint jobs and custom interiors to make a statement.
We’ve all got our own opinions on what makes a truck cool. Maybe you like lifted suspensions, knobby tires, and moderately sized wheels. Or perhaps your tastes lean more toward low riders with massive rolling stock and minimal ground clearance. But no matter what your preferences may consist of, it’s hard to argue with a well thought out, basic build. Take this clean 1977 Ford F-150 that we spotted over at Gateway Classic Cars, for example.
You won’t find anything offensive here, which is really saying something in the world we live in today. Just some fresh coats of PPG Jet Black covering timeless classic lines. The 4×4 sits right thanks to a Superlift lift kit and Cooper 315/75R-16 tires on chrome steel wheels. Outside of that, the only real modifications to the exterior consist of tasteful yet tough looking custom bumpers.
Under the hood lies a proper 400ci Ford motor, with a 4-speed manual transmission behind it. The engine has been treated to an Edelbrock intake and carb, Accel ignition, Hedman headers, and dual exhaust for a little extra grunt. Inside, you’ll find nothing more than the basics. That means a rubber floor mat and cloth covered seat. And that’s about it.
Despite the short list of upgrades, you’ll have a hard time finding anyone who won’t give this 1977 Ford F-150 a thumbs up. Why? Because vintage Ford trucks are simply cool as-is. They don’t need a ton of upgrades and flashy gear to grab attention. And if you do decide to show some restraint and do it right, you’ll wind up with a truly non-offensive ride. But one that’s still decidedly badass.
