    Just picked up this 1976 Ford F250 4x4 with the 351m... Took it right to the shop to get the major repairs done and in a couple weeks I'll start doing what I can do to it. Anyone have experience plowing with a '73 - '79 ford? I like the dragon painted on the hood, I think I'll keep it :) Plow will be put on next month.

    Holt Sh*t that thing's awesome! I haven't seen a truck with such a sweet dragon painted on the hood in a long time!

    I had a 78 F150 that I plowed with and it worked great. It wasn't the most comfortable truck to plow in, but it moved snow fine and never gave me a problem. Come to think of it, that truck was one of the most reliable I've ever had. Good luck.

    Thanks for the dragon compliments. I'd go take a better picture but it'll be in the shop for a couple weeks. The 4 wheel drive needed some work, the oil pan was leaking, it wouldn't shift into park, it was leaking oil from a couple other places... Other than that it runs strong. I found the truck on Craigslist.

    Once I get it back from the shop I will do my own mods. Give it a tune up, add some bright reverse lights, get the turn signals working, other cosmetic things. Also needs a radio because it'll be a boring winter at 3am with nothing to listen to.

    Might try LMCtruck.com or millsupply.com to find that missing piece of trim or whatever it needs. They have restore parts and pieces.
    My Dad bought a 68,73 and a 78 ---> F-250's 4X4's XLT brand new, just like it, He added Meyer plows. He owned them till they needed the 4th set of wiper blades, then he traded them in and bought new.

    I just sold my restored 79 plow truck last spring. It plowed snow like no other truck I have been in.
