The Guys With Rides Team was on hand Thursday, June 27 to watch this one-family-owned 1976 Ford F-250 4×4 Pickup cross the auction block. What makes this “High Boy” F-250 interesting is the single family ownership for 40 years and only that it only traveled 66,000 miles. The Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool estimates the #2 “Excellent” value for this vehicle at $18,900 so we weren’t surprised to see the hammer fall at an even $20,000.
Here’s the video we took of our three #fourbyfriday feature vehicles that we inspected in the Mohegan Sun parking garage prior to the start of Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast 2019 auction on Thursday, June 27, 2019:
From the Barrett-Jackson Docket:
“Lot #76 – This 1976 Ford F-250 Highboy 4×4 has been owned by one family for 40 years and has 66,000 original miles. It still sports its original factory Mecca Gold and Wimbledon White two-tone paint, which was a one-year-only color option offered in 1976. The 360ci engine has been rebuilt and bored to a 390ci using COMP Cam lifters and camshaft, and fitted with Headman headers and a custom stainless-steel Flowmaster dual exhaust system; it’s backed by a Ford Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission. Other features include factory-optioned Ford West Coast mirrors, factory front bumper guards, dual gas tanks, Ford AM/FM radio, cab lights and a new refreshed interior. The problem-prone original crossover power steering was updated with a new Benchmark power steering unit. This Highboy is stock height, not lifted. It has rear adjustable air ride it was equipped with when new, along with new shocks, new alloy wheels and BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires, which have been driven less than 1,000 miles. This F-250’s Marti Report shows this truck was one of two built in its original configuration.”
