The Highboy is one of the toughest-looking Ford trucks of all time. We love its sky-high stature and ultra-rugged drivetrain. You could bolt on a massive 35-inch tall tire under these trucks without lifting the suspension. These trucks sat a few inches taller than the 3/4-ton trucks from GM, Dodge, and Jeep, too.

After 1977.5, the F-250 was revised with a new frame, suspension, and drivetrain that lowered new F-250s. So from that point on, the older F-250s were known as “Highboys” and the new trucks that sat 2 inches lower were “Lowboys”. Many of these early tall F-250s came with Ford’s 360 V-8 paired to either a sturdy C6 automatic or a “granny low” NP 435 4-speed manual.

It might seem odd that a heavy-duty pickup truck from the 1970s could begin to interest truck collectors, but the cool stance, durability, and lore of these “Highboy” Ford Trucks make restored or low-mile examples very desirable.
