Ford Restoration Special - 1977 2WD Ford F250 Ranger - $6000.00 OBO.
My father bought this truck new in 1977, beefed up the suspension with extra springs and heavy duty shocks and used it as his shop truck until 1997 when he bought a new truck.
He kept it as his back up vehicle until 15 years ago then gave it to me. It has a 460 big block engine, an automatic transmission, 8 foot bed, and 263348 original miles.
I had the engine completely rebuilt about 20K miles ago and the transmission completely rebuilt about 15K miles ago. The front end has also been rebuilt and the power steering unit, starter, shocks, springs, and windshield replaced.
The body is in good condition with a little rust in the rear wheel wells but no hail damage, major dings, dents, or scrapes and the interior is in very good condition. The frame is straight and solid. The original AM radio is still in it and works!
My father and brother built the heavy duty front bumper and the tow bar and there is an auxiliary gas tank that goes with it. The camper shell is pretty worn though it could be rebuilt.
It’s not perfect and needs some minor work but it runs good. I’d prefer to sell it to someone that wants to do a restoration. More pics available on request and I can assist in arranging shipping. Any questions just ask.
