Probably a 351 with a C6 trans or something similar. Problem is, there's no such thing as "stock" back then, as often vehicles could be ordered with any number of different engines, unlike today, where a Toyota Camry comes with a 2.2, no matter what trim level. Could be as high as a 460 or as low as a 302. Ford Blue valve covers won't tell the story.

could also be a 390 if your lucky


Most F-250 Camper Special came with a 390 or 460, all automatic transmissions are C6. You can verify by VIN if original. You can check on LMCtruck.com go to 1973-1979 catalog then to page 8 for VIN breakdown.

no 1973 f100 thru f350 came from the factory with a 460. thats why they sell engine suports. 400 was as large as it got, but 2 wdrives got any combination even 240 sixes with a granny 4 speed. I know, I have 16 of them and build 2 a year! troyhamilton64@gmail.com

In 1975, one of the most popular engines in the Camper Specials, was the 360. But you could get the 300 I6, 302, 351 windsor, 351 Big Block, 400,And the 460.Camper Specials, 1n 1975, were like assholes, everyone had one. and they didn't ALL haul campers.

Troy,, Ford dropped the 240 I6 in 1972 for the 300 I6, right threw to 1996.


I have a '75 F-250, Super Cab, Camper Special, with a stock 360ci engine and a four speed manual trans. I'm trying to restore this truck, but I'm having trouble getting it to idle properly. I've had the engine completely rebuilt, but I don't know if the next step should be a carburetor, because I'm not certain of the emission and vacuum lines. Sorry for venting, on your post.

My 73 F250 has a 390 engine with 2 barrel carb C6 trans 3/4 ton full floating rear axle. 2 wheel drive and gets about 8-9 MPG.
