Midnight Blue 1977 Ford F-150 Is One Cool and Unique Vintage Hauler

Midnight Blue 1977 Ford F 150 Vintage Hauler
This 1977 Ford F-150 sports a unique color, precious few mods, and just enough patina to make it stand out from other vintage haulers.

In the realm of classic vehicles, there aren’t many who aren’t fans of 1970s Ford pickups, save for those that are loyal to those “other” brands. That certainly includes us, and we never get tired of scouring the furthest reaches of the internet to find the coolest and nicest examples out there in the world. This 1977 Ford F-150 up for grabs at Bring a Trailer is certainly one of them, as it’s held up very nicely over the years and sports a cool color that we don’t often see on these trucks – Midnight Blue Metallic.

That dark hue is indeed this truck’s original paint color, though it’s a bit worn and faded at this point, understandably. However, that doesn’t detract from its charm one bit, and is further accented by a set of vintage black 15-inch steel wheels wrapped in 33×9.5-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires for a beefier look than the stock rubber provides.

Underneath, this 1977 Ford F-150 is well-equipped with power steering and power-assisted front disc brakes, while a set of Skyjacker Hydro 7000 shocks were recently added to the mix, along with a new steering stabilizer and power steering pump. The matching blue interior has also been treated to a new cover for the vinyl bench seat, as well as a new rubber floor mat. The truck even came with factory air conditioning, but it isn’t currently working.

Power for this big blue pickup comes from Ford’s 400 cubic-inch V8, which is fitted with a Motorcraft two-barrel carburetor, an electric fuel pump, and an aftermarket dual exhaust system. The motor sends its power to either the rear or all four wheels via Ford’s three-speed C6 automatic transmission, while the rear end is stuffed with 3.50 gears inside of a limited-slip differential.

What this 1977 F-150 doesn’t have are any crazy modifications or major custom features, but that’s precisely how we like our Blue Oval pickups from this era – mostly stock. Couple that with a color that we don’t often see on these trucks, and it’s easy to see why Ford haulers from this era remain some of the most popular vehicles on the planet.
