1977Ford F250 4x4, the last and the best of the "Highboy's"

This is a fine example of a 1977 Ford F250 factory "Highboy" 4x4 original Survivor.  In mid 77 Ford dropped the "Highboy" in favor of the lower stance 78/79 style.  The 77 Highboy's got the 351/400 engine but  still had divorced transfer case, and the slave cylinder power steering.  This one features 100% original white paint on a 100% rustfree body from California.  The body and bed are unbelievably straight for a 34 year old truck.  This is probably the straightest original paint Highboy I have ever had.  Even the underside of the floor still has the original finish on it.  You will notice some roughness on the floors, they are chunks  of mud.  You will also notice some dark spots in the door jambs, they are paint chipping off, not rust.  Finally you will notice some darkness in the bed floor.  It is oily residue, not rust.  This truck is absolutely 100% rustfree, period. 

This truck driver good, but the steering is a little tight.  It has a strong 351, and a nice shifting 4 speed.  It has the divorced 205 transfer case.  It also has the heavy duty big hub front axle, the big disc brakes, and power steering.  The truck has nice 35" BFG's, Rancho 9000 shocks, nice sounding Flowmaster duals, etc.  The disc brakes stop straight, and smooth, and the suspension is tight.  It has a nice sounding AM/FM radio in the stock location.  Hop in pump the gas peddle twice, the choke sets, and she fires right up. 

The bottom line, this is a nice clean unabused rustfree California survivor that I would hop in and drive anywhere.  These Highboys are the hottest trucks right now, and 1977 is the most desirable year, this one won't last.
