Gorgeous 1976 Ford F-150 is a True Dual Threat

By -


Building a truck is a uniquely individual exercise. Usually we build them with a specific purpose in mind — be it off roading, daily driving, weekend cruising, or car show trailer queen. But there are times when a build can go in a variety of directions.

This 1976 F-150 is a build that checks all of the boxes and more.  It’s a grand slam in a world of singles and doubles, and it’s truly one of the nicest classic Fords you’ll ever see to boot.  The quality of the restoration is simply stunning, and the end result is a truck anyone would be proud to own.


It all starts on the outside, where a newer metallic gray paint job has been applied flawlessly.  It sits high on top of 35/12.50/15 tires mounted on aluminum wheels thanks to a 6 inch lift kit.  A late 60’s Thunderbird 390 has a host of performance parts that bring it up to around 400 horsepower.


The big block is backed up by a C6 with a shift kit, which sends power to a Dana 44 front axle and a Ford 9″ rear axle.  The interior is stock but new, with some upgraded stereo components.  Essentially this is a new 1976 F-150, one with the options any truck guy would want.


As you can imagine, all of this goodness doesn’t come cheap.  The seller is asking a whopping $49,000 for the truck, which is a pipe dream for most folks in the market for a 70’s Ford.  But if you want a top notch, brand new classic Ford that can do it all, this one’s for you.
