1976 Ford F-250 - Blue Ford Heaven

Posted in Project Vehicles on July 1, 2007

More often than not we dump thousands into our rigs constantly riding that fine line of how much is too much to put into something that we plan to abuse. Greg Roulson was able to tackle that problem with a little ingenuity and willingness to make the best vehicle out of a truck that he had always wanted. Built for the endless notches of Truckhaven in Southern California, he concentrated on keeping the sheetmetal to a minimum while maintaining the lowest center of gravity possible.

Straight from the factory with a Dana 60 rear and 44 front axle, the '76 F-250 provided Greg with one of the bestselling features of older trucks: solid axles. We always enjoy seeing homebuilt rigs like this on the trail. They're a testament to how you can easily take a stock vehicle more than three decades old and, with a little bit of time and money, turn it into a low-budget wheeler that will leave you smiling all the way to the bank.
