1975 Ford Extended Cab: Ready To Work

1975 Ford Extended Cab

We’ve been on the hunt lately for something capable of hauling parts, engines, and anything else we can’t haul in the MGB or Torino. We almost made a deal on a sweet little ’64 Ford Ranchero, but the seller made a deal with someone else before we even had a chance to take it for a test drive. Reader Madjid H shared his ’75 Ford Extended Cab truck that he is parting ways with and I have to admit, it is slightly tempting. If this were in Idaho, we would have already taken it for a spin. I just love the way old Ford paint wears thin, I don’t know why, but it just looks honest to me. This truck has a few flaws, including thin paint, but overall looks good. Here is a quick run down from Madjid, “title is clean, has 2016 tags, Start right up, runs great, does not have serious rust anywhere just some surface rust as you see in the photos. I would like to get $2500 and I think this is a fair price for this ex-cab truck“. If it runs as well as he claims, I think it would be a great buy, but being in California makes it just a little to far away for us. Imagine all the stuff you could haul in this beast! If you’re interested in giving this Ford a home or would like more info, you can contact Madjid via email here. Oh and be sure to take a closer look at the rest of his photos!

    Tough luck on the Ranchero, but if you’re looking for a little truck that can carry its weight, go find a Ranger. Bought mine in 2006 with 93K miles on it, and have never regretted it.

    So where in Cali. is the truck ?

    While there’s nothing tougher than a mid-70’s pickup ( any kind) be prepared to stop for gas quite often. I’ve had several Ford pickups of this vintage and drove several more for companies, and these Ford’s were unstoppable. These did get pretty lousy mileage, 8-10 by some accounts with the big block (390?) which it looks like it has, and even less pulling something. Even still, a nice truck if gas is not an issue. Don’t see these often in my parts, the Mid-West, as they were used until they broke in half.

    There are hundreds of these here in rust free New Mexico.

    I have a 71 250, really comes in handy for all kinds of things. Ratty enough to use and not worry about scratches, dings etc. Worth the $2600 I paid for it.

    Now that’s honest patina. My father-in-law helped us move twice using one of these. Great truck. Of course all your friends want to borrow it. All subdivision developers should be required to leave one of these behind for the new owners when they finish building out the real estate.

    These were a good tough truck. Like Howard says, rather hard on gas but they soldiered on and did the job. I came across an article in Petersen’s Complete Book of Pickups and Vans, telling how to get better performance out of the FE engine and I’ve applied it to many trucks since. Dual exhausts, Holley 500 2bbl and modify the advance curve. I got good performance and fuel economy, not to mention that you could now start them in anything from 35 below to 100 above.
