Hey everyone,

I am new to the group. I found a 96’ F-150 2wd,manual, in a field that I’m saving. 380k and body is really decent. But for $200 anything looks decent. I have replaced rear brake lines, headlights, battery, and starter. Power steering is leaking at reservoir and #6 fuel injector is stuck wide open. Anyways, I’m stoked to have a 4.9L gear-driven legend. Looking forward to any input. Trying to hit 500k mileage.

Welcome to the Ford Six forums home of the largest amount of 300 / 4.9 engine info and the most knowledgeable people on them. Good luck on your quest the 1996 F150 were almost the last of the 300's Ford made. :thumbup: :hmmm:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

Sorry, I’m late to respond on this post. Thank you and I have been going through the truck over the past few months. I think 96’ was the last year for the 300’s in the F-150’s.

Yes 1996 was the last of the 4.9 / 300 sixes in the F150's they were also still a few in the F&E series 250 and 350 Super Dutys in 1997 too. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
