1973 Ford F250 Story About Truck Owner Dusty B..jpg


My names dusty Byrnes I purchased this truck in May of 2014 from the second owner. This 73 high boy was an old farm truck from rio Linda California. I bought it for 2200 dollars in running condition but needed a lot of tlc the previous owner had rebuilt the 360 so it had just a thousand miles when I bought it. I wanted to do this truck right by restoring it back to original. I’ve always wanted a 73 to 77 Ford F-250 my dad had a 75 when I was a young kid i had so many memories riding with him in it was very beat up and I could hear him from blocks away coming home.

The crazy thing is both of our fords were original wind blue f250s. I started by buying some brand new tires and rims goin with the BFG all terrains and stock steel rims with factory hubcaps. From there I went into the interior using all LMC products replacing everything from the door panels, dash pad, rubber mat flooring, headliner, and just about everything else. Next up was body and paint when I bought it, it was basically rattle canned in green and had a fair amount of dings and dents from the farm. I went back to the original wind blue paint and had the inside of the cab including door jambs painted as well. Next up was a spray on bedliner, rear window tint, and all the trim and emblems this truck sits just like it did off the show room floor with a couple minor changes. I drive this truck almost every day so it is a driver very reliable and gets lots of looks going down the road. This truck will be passed down to my boy Sonny Byrnes when he turns 16.
