Very Cool! I can picture that, the second year for the "highboy".

Not to hijack the thread but that 74 was a total turd. It used a quart of oil every 200 miles from the day it was new. Half the bolts on it weren't tight, like the rear axle nuts, as grease started slinging out of them within the first 100 miles. I gave it a once over and found a lot of bolts, like the driveline clamps weren't even tight enough to mash the lock washes.
I was raised on Chevys and this was my first Ford. I have no idea why that truck didn't send me running back to the bow tie. But it didn't and I special ordered a new 1976 F250 4x4 (which I paid for with 6 weeks of paychecks)

I'd say this was a factory 'showy' photo, what with the white/light grey paint all underneath, but the truck is lettered up. Any guesses on this truck's pic circumstances? (Looks very handsome, esp when I picture it in color.)

I meant- why were the undercarriage/rims/brakes painted white?

I'm not sure who came up with term, or what years, nothing much is different underneath from my 59 F250 than a 67 so technically it might be a highboy if that's what I wanted to call it

I'm not sure either, since High Boy is not official FoMoCo terminology.

Most members seem to agree on 1967/77's, but 1959/66's should also be included.

Then there is the bumpside/ dentside discussion. The '74 was the second year for the dentside.

The Swift's Model A had a painted white frame, not from the factory, but because it was painted to make a statement as a rolling billboard.

A lot of people claim the dentside series ended in 79 but if you drove a van it lasted until 1990. My last cube I bought new in 90 and it still had the dentside body style.

Dentside is an enthusiasts term for 1973/79 F100/350's. I've never seen an Econoline referred to as such.

1975/91 Econolines have basically the same sheet metal. 1975/78's have round headlamps, 1979/91's have rectangular headlamps.

So the only real difference are the grilles and lower grille panels.
