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.

My F-I-L just gave me his 67 f250 camper special. 4-speed with a 390. He had it all redone many years ago and it has set it his garage ever since. Can't wait to get it on the road. I do need to find the stock gears though. He swapped them out for more friendly highway gears.

If it's got the factory carburetor the velocity pump on the front of it can get a pin hole in it making it run rough so I kept a extra one handy.
Other than that they are tough to beat, they have a great approach for busting through deep snow or drifts

Well, finally got around to looking at this truck. It is a '74 (not a 77) highboy with a 360(not 390). Pretty rough shape. Hasnt run for 4 or 5 years. Drum brakes all around. Needs a gas tank and tires for sure. Does bave a four barrel holley. Winch on the front(not sure if works).
Worth spending $1000 ?

Beautiful trucks on here. I'll show off my old Ford. 1989 F150, 4wd. Repowered with a 4cyl Cummins diesel about 60k miles ago. I bought it from a retired diesel mechanic about 40k and 3 years ago, he did the repower. I painted her and finished a few loose ends from the swap. Been a great truck. [Linked Image]

In all honesty I wouldn't give that much for it unless the front differential is good and tight it should have a solid front axle and floating rear axles which if it's rough that what you're buying is a headache or parts to fix something you already have while you get them fixed to put on one you already have for extras so to speak.
Chances are it's just a worn out lawn ornament but if you really want it offer him $ 3 - 400.00 and be willing to turn and walk away .
Unless you need a money pit to put a bunch of time , money and parts into in hopes it will work at some point in time.

Doesn't really look all that bad. I don't see the deal breaker, rust holes. The stuff down there is alot better than up here in the land of salt and snow.

Personally I'd fix it up mechanically and drive it from there. The most I'd do to the outsides is give it a couple coats of clear over the existing paint after a good cleaning and light scuffing up.

The big advantage to that is its relatively simple, manual trans, crank windows, no A/C. Not alot of all the added crap that you see on "modern" trucks.

Its true working vehicle.

For $1000 I'd have no problem, Even if you have to sink a couple more grand in to it, say you've got $4000-$5000 total when done and its in great mechanical condition what else can you get for that amount of money thats as simple and easy to keep and maintain?

Well if that truck was listed for sale in southern oregon, non running , buyer trailering it away , it would be around $2800
Knowing they would take $2500 for it .

I had the same exact truck as pictured by blak spot. Only it was a crew cab with I think a 300 6 in it. Cant remember, 74,75 or 76? Wished I still had it. I always liked the 1st generation broncos too. If I was swimming in money I would consider a new one that is just out.

Well, put some juice to the battery, dumped some gas in the carb and it cranked up an ran till the gas gave out.

To top it all off, 5 of my kids pooled their money and surprised me by buying it for me for an early fathers day/birthday gift!! Not ashamed to say i had some leakage around the eyes...

Hope to get it home this next week. My son just finished rebuilding the 4 barrel holley. Plan to get it on and go from there.
Those front drum brakes may drive me nuts. Thoughts of rotor conversion may not be to far off for the future

Re: •••1977 Ford F-250 4x4 •••? - 04/20/20 01:35 AM

That should have a low pinion Dana 44 front end. It’s not worth wasting the time on to do disc brakes. You will want to find a front axle out of a 76-79 to get the high pinion and a snowfigter Dana 60 would be even better. I tuned up my 390s with a petronix electric ignition kit to get rid of the points, and replace the vacuum advance while your at it. Once they are dialed in they usually run good for a good long time.

My oldest son wants to paint it ford blue and keep the top and wheel rims white. May keep the black side stripe also. Thinking i might go that route.

Anyone know if thats a factory winch? No brand name on it.

Re: •••1977 Ford F-250 4x4 •••? - 04/26/20 11:54 PM

Good deal
When you get to the distributor part of it. I suggest investing in one of these they have the same two wire hook up as your point distributor does. I All so run the flamethrower 111 45,000 volts.

Fyi: for those still interested.
Finally got some more work done on the truck.
Found a better hood with hinges for $65.
Rear sliding window for $35
New Rear wheel cylinders installed.
Son-in-law gave me a 30 gallon fuel cell that i installed.
Still runs a little rough. When i get more time i'll tinker with that 4v Holley carb(1850-2). Or maybe get an edelbrock
I cut out the rusted clogged mufflers.
I found out the winch is an 8k Warn that comes as a factory option

Re: •••1977 Ford F-250 4x4 •••? - 05/28/20 03:39 PM

Yep I thought that winch was a factory option, I've seen That same one on a couple of them now.
Your doing good on finding reasonable priced parts. have you set the timing with a light. Those point distributors get wore out I fought my points for years. Got to where if I stomped on the gas it would actually advance my timing and I would have to get out and re adjust my distributor.
Posted By: the Blak Spot

Re: •••1977 Ford F-250 4x4 •••? - 05/28/20 04:03 PM

Still trying to decide edelbrock or holley(it has an edelbrock intake)

Also lookin at that Hot-Spark set up to replace points and that petronix(wallet is cringing lol)

Re: •••1977 Ford F-250 4x4 •••? - 05/28/20 04:31 PM

I had a manual choke edlelbrock and my truck was running really bad. started with checking for vacuum leaks.
Pulled the hose off the brake booster and checked the vacuum there seemed good. So I bought a new edlbrock with a electronic choke. Installed it and hooked up the hot wire to the fuse box under the dash. Started the truck and no difference. So it was running and I stuck my head under the dash to check my wires.And that's when I noticed a sound like a fan running. I stuck my hand up were the brake petal comes through the firewall and could feel air blowing...... Come to find out those brake boosters have two halves to them. When I checked the front half it was good. So I replaced the brake booster and it completely fixed my problem. That's after I had talked to two mechanics that told me I had a bad carb. Well now I wish I hadn't even talked to them. These trucks are easy to fix just don't get discouraged and buy parts you don't need like I did.

Those old distributors would wear inside and the shaft would move around. Check to see if is side play on the shaft. That one will change the gap on the points and make it run ragged.

that warn winch is one of the best winches ever made and sought after. don't throw it away or replace it with a cheap chinese newer one. you can still get parts for them or at least make parts work for them. i'd rebuild it before i swapped it with anything else.

Im late to this, but being from the rust belt...nothing. For a lil elbow grease, flip it if nothing else. Im a chevy guy but if you can get any old square body anything, grab it. Youll move it if you want. Thats a steal. Wheres it from? If its Arkansas i wouldnt worry about rust. Thats surface crap. Buy now. Part and profit if nothing else

Ill have to read the rest i spose for other responses. Good luck however you roll.

Something interesting that i found out. From 68-79(iirc)Ford never put a 390 into a f250 4x4.(or Highboy, as they were sometimes called).
My vin says mine came with a 360 and 2 barrel carb. Somewhere in time, it was changed to a edelbrock intake and 4 barrel holley(single pump).
Mine has a dana 60 rear with 4.10's, NP435 4 speed, and divorced NP205 tcase.

I know mine had a crate motor 390 installed by the guy I bought mine from. There are two different 390 blocks. The truck blocks have extra cast webbing for strength. Hard to explain it. But these block's are getting harder to find nowadays.

Sounds like your doing pretty good with no major problems. Now your adding value to that old girl with the new stuff you've added.

I have a 1983 Dodge W350 with only 96,000 actual mileage. It loves gas. But, the biggest problem I have is that it's starts poorly, always has. I've had a number of vehicles over the years and they were poor starting due to carburation instead of EFI. I won't buy a vehicle unless it's EFI.

Put a pertronix Ignitor 2 electronic ignition in it. Huge difference on starting.
