1977Ford F250 4x4, Unique Longbed Stepside

Rare and unique 1977 F250 4x4.  This truck is 99.9% rustfree from California.  I was built there and spent it's entire life there.  It has a nice running 351 engine, smooth shifting 4 speed, AC, power steering, power disc brakes, etc.  It has the Bullet proof NP205 transfer case, high pinion Dana 44 front, and a Dana 60 rear.

Now for the interesting part.  Per the VIN tag it is a 2wd "F25" but now is a 4x4.  I have never seen a long bed stepside 4x4 in any 77 Ford configuration.  The story is that it was built for the California government or utility company.  Yet it has a 23J axle code.  The 23 is for 3.54 gears, and the J is the front 4x4 axle code.

So it appears as it was factory built as a longbed stepside 4x4.

Otherwise its a pretty straight turn key driver.  The discoloration on the drivers door is from some sort of decal.

I don't have a lot more to say about this truck that the pictures cant say.
