Green Project: 1977 Ford F-100

1977 Ford F-100

Up for sale is a very tough looking 1977 Ford F-100. This mean-looking green machine is located in a corresponding colorful geographical location, Orange, California. The current bid price has reached $1,350 by 32 bidders with no reserve. Within the listing though, the seller is very particular on how you are to bid on this truck, so that could be why the price is so low. A VIN is listed and there are 39,919 miles on the odometer. The title is said to be clear and you can find it here on eBay.

There are some conflicting statements within the listing. Twice it is said the truck has a 6-cylinder engine, while in two other points it says it has an 8-cylinder engine connected to an automatic transmission. The photos show that it has a V8 and it is connected to an automatic based on the cabin photos. However, only one photo is clear enough to get some idea of the engine condition, while the other is blurry. It is important to note that this truck is not running because it is missing a battery and there is no key.

The interior has torn seats and is quite dirty, but it does not appear to be unbearable. There are door panels missing, but no other vital part appears to be out of place. The headliner might be sagging a little, but the dashboard is not cracked. In the bed, the wood is all rotted out and the rear window trim is bent. All the paint is in very rough condition. One of the door panels is in the bed, but the truck is missing a tailgate.

There is a lot of potential in this truck, especially for the price. What becomes difficult is the bidding process. That should not be too hard, but the listing makes it sound like more trouble than what it is worth, especially considering all the discrepancies mentioned. There isn’t much time left on it either. If you can figure out shipping, and have a plan for when you buy it, this truck might be worth the effort.

    Looks more like 139K miles to me. Oh
    sure, it’s a great project truck with little to
    do but find a key and get it running. And
    yes, the price is fair too for what you’ll get. If I didn’t have my F-250, I’d be all over this as pickups here in Florida can
    fetch as much as $5K for a non running
    basket case. I’d say that this truck here
    would be worth $8K here in Florida. That’s cheap compared to a 2006 Dodge
    Ram I saw on a used car lot near Davenport, Florida in 2018. The seller was asking over $30K for a rundown
    pickup with over 300K miles on it! Makes
    me wonder what he was smoking when
    he priced that truck. Whatever it was, this
    truck beats his price by a mile!

    Too many requirements and disclaimers by the seller and the whole tone of the lengthy auction text will discourage bidding. Others may be willing to jump through hoops for the seller but I wouldn’t; I’m not going beg the seller to please accept my bid, then give him my money AND kiss their a$$. I don’t want to deal with sellers like these, life’s too short. I’ll do my business with a friendly, accommodating seller who will encourage me to buy from them.

    Recover that seat before it gets any worse, and find a decent tailgate you would have a good looking ride. Nice wheels too.

    Last of the true step-sides, last the wood beds, needs a manual tranny to be the real deal for me. However, as stated by FordGuy above, neither would I buy from a seller with such an obnoxious attitude regardless of what it was.

    Nice little cutie, none left here in the rust belt. If it doesn’t run find something good running,, fix the wood and enjoy, Think I’d leave the paint alone. Good luck to the new owner, sure is hard to deal with an obnoxious owner, like the guys said above. Why not be friendly and move it down the road?? SMH.

    So what was the deal on the bidding ?
    Looks to me like you missed there is no carburator on it ! I guess bidding closed.
    I had a 77 style side F-150 head a blast with that truck !! I really like the Ford’s of those years, they had way more room than the Chevy’s inside.
