Ford has built many, many trucks over the years. One of the best-regarded of them is the F-250 “Highboy,” built from 1967-77, which earned its nickname from its distinctive appearance that boasted a lifted front suspension to facilitate off-roading. Sometimes, those trucks even sported period-perfect two-tone paint jobs. Now, a Ford dealer in Kansas is bringing that cool look back — in modern form.
Long McArthur Ford, home of Long McArthur Performance, is offering trucks modded with a Highboy Package for the new F-250. The base trucks are F-250 XL regular cabs with the STX Appearance Package. The package adds two-tone paint, a two-inch front suspension lift and massive 35-inch BG Goodrich tires. It also includes aesthetic add-ons and additional modifications to accommodate the structural changes.
The Highboy package costs an additional $11,995, which is quite a bit more than optioning a Super Duty with Ford’s off-roading Tremor Package. The two Highboys currently available with the 7.3-liter V8 are priced out to $53,495 — though you can buy them now for $49,995 with a dealer cash incentive.
If that price tag is a bit steep to slake your Highboy nostalgia, you could just buy an original Highboy. Vintage trucks don’t command the same premium as vintage off-roaders. One main reason is there were a lot of Ford and Chevy trucks kicking around. You can find a great-looking Highboy for less than $20,000.
