TRUCK YOU! A Garage Full of Classic Broncos and F-250s
77&79F250 is a retired Army helicopter crew chief and door-gunner now spends much of his time working on the many trucks he has in his garage and four-wheeling when he can.
He has been a member of the site since 2007 and considers himself a “workaholic” — and with six rigs in his garage, that would seem true. He is certainly a true Ford truck enthusiast. So much so, in fact, that we could not fit all of his trucks into this feature!
Even so, we won’t leave you hanging. One of the many rigs in his garage is a 1971 Ford Bronco. 77&79F250 swapped in a 302 V8 and an automatic transmission.
In addition to that, he added on a 6″ lift and 35″ Boggers to complete the off-road look (and reality!) for the Bronco. The only thing that he hopes to do in the future is get rid of some of those nasty dents from the trees. But, hey, steel lives through anything.
The next of the many rigs is a 1978 Ford F-250 4X4 with ’79 headlights.This rig has a 460 under the hood and a four speed transmission.
In addition to that, the Ford has a 4″ lift and 35″ tires. We’re not sure if 77&79F250 does any off-roading in this truck, but it certainly looks pretty spiffy!
Meet Ol’ Red, one of 77&79F250’s off-roading beasts. This truck is a 1979 Ford F-250 with a four speed manual transmission and a 6″ Skyjacker lift with rear springs.
So far he has added a 400 Edelbrock intake, Hedeman headers, an electric fuel pump, bucket seats, a 5-point harness, and more. Still to come on this Ford are new fenders, a fresh paint job, a flatbed, and more.
The final truck we’ll be mentioning today is quite unique. It is technically a 1973 Bronco, but certainly doesn’t look like one anymore. 77&79F250 calls this ride the “Hillbilly Bronco” and he got it while seeking out a dunebuggy, but, as he puts it, he “found something even better.”
The Ford runs a 302 and has a three speed transmission. As for any exterior and interior modifications… the picture certainly tells that story. There are several things that he hopes to do with the rig, and is even considering getting it to be road legal!
77&79F250 still has a few more superb rigs in his garage that are most certainly worth seeing. Go drop by his garage and leave some comments, browse the photography, and have a good time! Be sure to keep your garage up to date and maybe you’ll be featured next time!
