The 57-60's have less of a following than the earlier trucks. They are becoming more popular especially with the younger generation. As a rule, F-100's of any year are generally more desired than the 250's, likely because most people that do rebuild them don't use them as trucks and don't need the added strength. I am sure there are other reasons. Such as, it is also a little harder to get some of the 250 specific things. For example, it is easier to find after market wheels that fit a 5 bolt pattern than it is an 8 bolt pattern.

Most of the 250's I have seen restored had some sentimental value to the builder, i.e. it was Dad's or Granddad's truck.

Either way, it is your truck and you can do as you please with it.

So I guess the answer to you question is in 2011, 250's are less common than 100's and 57-60 trucks are less common than the earlier fat fendered versions. However I would not call them rare. Rare to me implies that it is something sought after by many and few found and this does not apply.

Hope this helps.

I agree with whats been said. I have always had a soft spot for the orphan years (57-60) as I drove a 60 back in high school. Its true that most people that mess with these old truck go for the dropped and bagged look, bu tto me the 57-60 trucks lends itself more to being raised up. The trucks have an agressive look to them, especially the 4x4's, they just look tough;

I have a 60 Ford F250 I am restoring myself right now. My dad had owned it from 1982 to 1992 and then traded it to a guy for a Mustang, who owned it up till last year and I bought it back. It was that sentimental type value as I remember as a kid going up to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes and running all over that place in the truck.

As Walston stated,the main disadvantages of an F250 vs. F100 in the 57-60 years are:

1. Few wheel choices.

2.More difficult to upgrade from front drum to front disc brakes for the F250's 8-lug wheel pattern.

3.If you want to split hairs, the F250 leaf springs are also not available other than custom-made,that I'm aware of. Not a big problem, as yours' can be re-arched.


There are no other major advantages/disadvantages that are worth worrying about, in my opinion.
