1976 Ford F-250 factory 4x4 'Highboy' represents some of the best
features Ford had to offer in the mid-70's. Classical styling,
terrific looks, and a proper stance. So about those looks:
refinished in a Dark Blue Metallic exterior and interior paint job,
she bodes well to 'Classic Ford' colors. And as a Ranger XLT
packaged truck, she has all the trim from top to bottom that would
have set her off against the rest. Across the midline, the vinyl
bodyside moldings are complemented by the stainless trim along the
rocker panel area. And out back, diamond plated bed rails match the
diamond plate toolbox resting along the bed, just behind the cabin.
The truck is powered by a 360 V8 engine mated to a C6 3-speed
automatic transmission. Also, the traditional red, white and blue
Ranger XLT badging on the glovebox door really screams USA pride.
This happens to be one of our favorite touches from this era and
remains just as good looking as the day it left the factory.
Speaking of factory, this truck was built on June 24th, 1976 and
sold new by Gateway Ford of Newberg, Oregon on September 9th, 1976.
It left the production line in Hatteras Green with Lime Green
Stripes along the body; since changed under prior ownership to the
color you see it as today. Out front, the truck now features a Tuff
Stuff branded bumper with 12,500 lb waterproof winch on the front.
Additionally, the truck wears a set of ProComp XTerrain LT325/80R16
tires over polished alloy wheels. Stopping power is also helped by
the fact that 1976 marked the first year for factory disc brakes on
the Ford 4x4s. Ranger XLT Package 360 V8 Engine Automatic
