1976 Ford F250 Highboy

Note: Pictures on this site were taken over a period of time from July 2015 to July 2022

I've always wanted a pickup truck.

Specifically, I always wanted a red pickup.

In July of 2015 I got my wish when I bought this 1976 Ford F250 Highboy which my son nicknamed, Clifford The Big Red Truck.

Unfortunately, the time has come for me to sell this vehicle.

Fortunately for you, the time has come for me to sell this vehicle.



Though this is a big truck with an 8 foot bed, it drives nicely and tracks well on the road.

The vehicle is enjoyable to drive since there are no squeaks, rattles or body noises. This is due in part because the interior was removed and extensive sound deadening materials were applied. Material was installed in the doors also.

The term 'Highboy' has been used to refer to 1967-1977.5 Ford F-250's, although 'Highboy' wasn't actually a Ford term. 

The term 'Highboy' was more of a nickname that came about when Ford switched to a negative arch leaf spring for the 1977.5 model, making it 4-inches lower than the 1977 model.

For a Ford truck to be considered a 'Highboy', it should meet the following criteria:

- 1967-1977.5 Ford F-250 4x4

- Divorced Transfer Case (Not attached to the transmission)

- A Highboy will have (3) drive shafts

- The front spring pack will have a noticeable arch (1977.5 and later are flat)

- Rear springs are 2-1/4" wide. 1977.5 and later non-Highboy's will have 3-inch wide rear leafs.

Front axle choices in the Highboy were either the 8-lug Dana 44 or the low pinion Dana 60.

Engine choices were either the 6-cylinder or 360 2 bbl V-8. Steering was either manual or power ram assist.

F-150's built during that time are NOT considered a 'Highboy'. The F-250's built from 1977.5 and later are referred to as a 'Lowboy' because they sit lower than the 1977.
