Re: 76 F-250 High Boy Pics

Should be easy to find...

Any 76-older F250 4x4 is a highboy. In mid '77 they lowered the trucks a couple of inches, so the term "highboy" referred to the early production run.

A remote t-case and low-pinion front axle identify a 77.5-older truck. A married t-case and high-pinion front axle identify a 77.5 newer truck.

So was it called "highboy" when they sold them, or did they later call them high boys after they came out with the new "lower" model?

Lots of Ford trucks here:

My guess is they didn't invent the term "highboy" until there was a "lowboy". I've never seen a badge or emblem with this word on it. Maybe just a case of dealer-speak that made it to the public? Probably not unlike the SuperCrew that gets shortened up to "SCrew" amongst dealer sales staff [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Ford used "Ranger" and "Explorer" as trim levels on 70's truck as well. Chevy used "Tahoe" on many of the 94-older downsize Blazers. They also used "Wrangler" and "Durango" on some of their 80's pickups.

The "Ranger" was used in the 80's on some of the F-150's. What about the "Expidition" any hidden meaning in that?

I don't think I've ever seen that on a pickup.... maybe it was a dealer-installed trim package?
