1978 Ford F250 Crew Cab 4×4

1978 FordF 250 Crew Cab 4x4

Crew cabs didn’t arrive on the scene with such popularity until this past decade. However, Ford was building them in trucks to tote workers to jobsites in the 1970s. Back then they were probably considered completely utilitarian. Now, plop a 6″ lift kit and some 37″ Nittos on an F-250 crew cab and you’ve got one bad-ass vintage mudder. This Ford F250 Crew Cab is in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. I don’t know what the restoration details are on this truck. It’s certainly not a show truck but it does present nicely. The interior has a little dirt and wear, but heck, this ain’t no trailer queen. Those big ass tires need something to push them and this truck has a 400 cubic inch V8 that does the job though a newly installed Jasper automatic. The seller has a $25,000 starting price on this old Ford Crew Cab 4×4 and as of press time, nobody has pulled the trigger at that price. I’d guess it would take somewhere closer to $20K to garner a little more interest. Either way, nice rig.

  1. Wow! gorgeous truck 🙂

    I’d love to know what restoration process this truck went through. I just acquired a 1976 “Frankenstein” F250 Crew Cab 4×4 step side with a 390 and 4 speed from a second owner who has had it for 32 years. It started off as a 2 wheel drive crew cab that go a make over to a 4 wheel drive railroad truck chasis combined with a high boy 4 wheel drive system and a 1986 stepside bed – so 4 different truck parts in one. As I am learning, Ford only made about 10,000 crew cabs during the 1970’s from the “bump side” to the “dent side” trucks and they were used mainly for special order commercial “6 man” cabs that where 2 wheel drive? If you have more information that would be great!

    Thanks 🙂
