sold it and bought a great bronco, same suspension and lift (basically), more lights, killer stereo ( my mom still has the speakers using them as home stereo speakers in her house. Pioneer TSX-8, i traded her years ago for her home speakers), i never could get the power i needed from the Bronco and sold it for the Hemi Cuda.rock on..............#'s 4-5 & 6.....those were the days.

very nice truck...77 Ford is my favorite
had one about 20 years ago, was 2wd, had a 351m in it which was a complete piece of shit...got ahold of a boss 302 (think it was a 70½) and dropped that baby in...man did that truck get up and go...really wish I still had it disappointed smiley

I have an old 77 f-150 4x4 shortbox alot like this except its somewhat of a rust bucket.If it wasn't 700 miles away from me I'd like to
wrench on it and get it rolling again.It has a manual transmission with "Bull" low and a 351 Cleveland.Because its a shortbox with dual tanks the
front tank is behind the seat which always made me nervous whilst smoking lol.

I had a 77 with an extended cab (4 kids) and the old 300cid straight six that was definitely a rust bucket. It was pretty trashed when I got it and I ran it for a few years 'til it was just too far gone to keep putting money into. It always ran well, just everything else was falling apart. It served me pretty well for what it was but it took thirty acres to turn it around with that long cab and full sized bed. Had some fun lettin' the kids drive it around out in the field which is kinda the beauty of having something that a few more dings and scratches won't matter.

Pops had a 73. Sent me and my brother out to change the oil one Saturday, we're standing there marveling at how much room there is under the hood, he says, "Ya know, I'm pretty sure I could get in there and close the hood." And he did. Can't really do that with the new ones.

My son was over here the other day changin' the oil in his '03 Mustang (nothin' special, just a standard V-6) and I told him about being able to climb right into the engine bay of the '57 Chevy I had when I was his age and how there was damn near room enough for someone to fit into just the space between the radiator and grill under the hood. Even more room around that six in my old pickup.
