F-250 High Boy

I thought you guys might appreciate this truck.
It's a '77 F-250 High Boy. It has the 460, 4x4. I think he said it was 4.10 gears (might be wrong). The thing is in incredible shape for being a midwest truck. Sitting on 40x16.5 tires on 17" rims. It's HUGE... and he was daily driving it for a month or two before he bought his Magnum, 5 mpg.. was costing him $30 a day to drive to and from work, lol. The front and rear bumper are solid steel.. I'd say 3/8" to 1/2" thick.. they are beefy to say the least. So far I think all he did was give it a little bit of a tune up and a new power steering line. 4x4 is a little difficult to engage, but it works. Nice project truck. The spare tire goes under a panel on the passenger side of the bed.. but I think he is going to weld in a tool box in there because a spare 40" tire will not fit in there. Also, something I found interesting, the gas tank is located in the cab, right behind the driver's seat. Also, has a power window on the passenger side, so you don't have to lean all the way across to open and close it. And manual locking hubs, and dual exhaust.

Enjoy :)

I'd be daily driving one of those with a 4-spd had I found a nice one instead of my Superduty lol. Nothing beats the older trucks for durability or "badassery" factor.

Yea guys, it's definitely sweeter in person... you roll around in it and it's like... "oh yea", haha. Sounds great.. smooth ride.. a little play in the steering, but it's old.. what do you expect? Not a bad start for a bad *** project truck I think? I think he picked it up for $3k, considering what's already been done to it, and the shape the body is in... I'd say he got a great deal. I think we looked at it closer and it's a 4 barrel carb, which I think is after market, this thing will get up and go.. haha... 460 woo!
