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

1977 Ford F250 factory "Highboy" 4x4.    The 77 is a unique year.  It's not only the last year for the "Highboy" suspension, but it's the most desirable "Highboy".  77 was the first year for the 351/400 Modified engine family.  In mid 77 Ford dropped the "Highboy" in favor of the lower stance 78/79 style.  The 77 Highboy's still had divorced transfer case, and the slave cylinder power steering.  Another reason the 77's are so desirable is that it is the only year Highboy that a 460 will drop right in. Enough history.

This is a 1 family owned California Highboy, only showing 81,284 on the odometer.  The grandson of the original owner was adamant about the miles being original. It comes with a small spiral notebook with all the maintenance history up to 70k miles.  This truck is rustfree from California.  We did put a new drives floor pan in.  The body and bed are pretty straight for a 46 year old truck. The paint is old and warn, but has a nice proud look.

This Highboy does drive nice.  It has a smooth running 351, with a nice shifting 4 speed, and a smooth clutch.  Other options Include: power steering, power disc brakes, factory AM/FM stereo.  It has the divorced 205 transfer case.  It also has the heavy duty big hub front axle, with Warn locking hubs, and the big disc brakes.  It has a Dana 60 limited slip "posi" rear axle with 4.10 gears.  The truck has decent 33/12.5/16.5 BFG's of the rare factory 8" wide steel wheels.  The disc brakes stop straight, and smooth, and the suspension is tight.  Hop in pump the gas peddle a couple times, the choke sets, and she fires right up.  We installed a new carburetor also.

The interior is exceptional.  We installed new carpet, but the rest is really nice.

The bottom line, I can't put my hands on these much anymore, and almost every Ford guy wants one.  These Highboys are the hottest trucks right now, and 1977 is the most desirable year, this one won't last.
