The 73-79 F150 Search

My son and I have recently finished restoring a 79 Bronco. Now that he's taken it to college this Fall, I would like to restore a 4x4 F150 for myself. I like the 73-79 models the best. Are there any specifics (engine, year, etc) I should look for or avoid with these trucks? It will not be a daily driver but it will see some action out on the farm occasionally.

Re: The 73-79 F150 Search

-if you like FE motors, they were only offered until 76.
-75,76ish and later had Duraspark electronic ignitiion which is really very nice to have.

After that, I guess it is really a question of "what grill do you like the best?"
Of course that shouldn't be a huge issue as you an swap them around, ie if I found a perfect 76 and I REALLY wanted a 78, I wouldn't pass up the deal just because I didn't want to swap a grill around.

My truck is a 76. I like the dark grill, I love 390 motors, and I don't have the desire to mess with points. :-) good luck!
