Gotta friend whose Dad in law is selling his 77 ford f250 4x4, four speed manual trans, with a 390 in it. He asking around $1500.
I have not seen it.
What were the main problems with these trucks/motors?
Thanks

Rust and just general deterioration. If the body is in good shape it is worth 1,500 with no motor or trans, ifs its in decent shape and runs it is a great deal.

Here's a picture of my 390 in my 75 factory high boy f250. It's got a cam in it for rv and off-road applications.
This truck has saved me on the trap line when my newer truck couldn't make it in due to snow.
You won't find a 1977 f250 for under 3000 if its not all beat up on the west coast.

I may try that. My doge has 210,000 on the 4.7L. That ford probably gets 8-10 mpg in the city i reckon

I've had a few Fords of that vintage, never had a 250 though. Had 390, 360, and 302. The 302 is the best in my opinion, better mpg and pretty spunky.

Wrong it gets 8-10 every where, you should just about be able to step on the gas and watch the gas gauge go down as fast as the speed goes up.
Great trucks and I'd buy it in a second if it was in good shape but more for sentimental reasons then to drive everyday

Won't have to worry about it being stolen if its a 4 speed

I agree about buying it for a daily driver.....not if you put many miles on because you won't drive past many gas stations without stopping in.

Why do you all got to be so practical? I once had a 1979 Short Box Reg Cab Ford 4x4 small lift 33" tires, with a 429 and 750 Holley on a high-rise Edelbrock intake. Doubt if I got 10 mpg ever... wish I still had it!!!

I had a '72 Ford F250 two wheel drive with the 390 Big Block growing up and I just loved that beast!! Painted a house in trade for it. Got married and had to move and ended up having to sell the truck. Looking back I should have kept the truck as the wife is long gone, LOL.

Thinking back on those days, I remember thinking about buying a certain car and asked my boss at the time his thoughts on it.

He said; wouldn't buy that car, they're pretty much wore out when they get that many miles on them.

The car in question had just under 100k on it. Lol and, they were pretty much wore out at that mileage back then.

If it is in any kind of shape and runs I would jump on that.
