An awesome tall stance, big V8 power, and the right upgrades both for flair and to get the job done… that’s what you get with this 1975 Ford F-250 Highboy 4×4

This truck offers just the right combination of functionality and flash. The bright red paint gives this truck flair without getting so fancy you’ll stop using this 4×4 for all its intended purposes. After all, a big and tall truck with a racing stripe on the hood wants to be a hard-charger everywhere from the High Country to High Street. And the bold attitude continues on the brightwork. The front bumper has big guards to push others out of your way, and the diamond plate rear bumper has a handy step that also holds the tow hitch. And we know you love the style and ruggedness that comes from the polished 8-lug wheels. There are work-ready details, like the cab roof lights, bed tie-down cleats, and a long bed that’s absolutely ready for work.

The red returns inside, but the really impressive part is the black. Taut door panels, a newer dash pad, newer carpeting, and a comfy bench seat. You’ll spot a few more nice upgrades, like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, auxiliary gauges, tinted windows, and a retro-style AM/FM digital stereo w/Bluetooth. But we bet your favorite feature will be the sliding rear glass. It combines with the side vent windows to give you that classic old-school breeze through the cab that only a vintage truck can.

Whether you want this for work or play (or both), you’ll love the extra power this one puts down. The engine bay shows a strong investment in the 390 cubic-inch V8. The bright blue of the big motor gives it a stock style, but pieces like the Mickey Thompson valve covers clue you in on the big work they have done to this powerhouse. It inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and the Hedman headers add power as it exhales with authority from the dual exhaust. And it has the right supporting pieces, like a Pertronix flamethrower coil, fresh wires, fresh hoses, and an aluminum radiator. It earns its Highboy nickname for the tall 4×4 stance that came directly from the factory on these extra-tough F-250s. And the undercarriage photos show how fresh these beefy components look on this restored truck, including Ranchero shocks and Toyo Open Country tires. They also added a Steerman power steering kit, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. So this one is great for the street or the trails.
