I'm Hoping some can help me out with this. I recently picked up a "fully" restored 1978 F-150 Camper Special. With a 351W, aftermarket dual exhaust, etc. etc. The truck came with the Camper Special Badges, but I have NO idea where they go! I've been told they only needed one from the factory, so I'm leaning towards the tailgate. Can anyone help me??? Any help at all is appreciated!!! E-mail me at Redneck882@aol.com Thanks again!!!

Yeah, I have one sitting in my drive way, each badge goes directly below the "F badge" on each front fender. None on the tailgate. However please keep in mind that my Truck is a 1973 F-150 Camper Special, I can only assume that the badges would be in the same spot for a 1978, I wouldn't think it would change for any reason, Ford trucks stayed pretty much the same for this year span.

Anyone interested in a 77 F-250 Camper Special? I had this truck shipped to Ky from L.A a year ago because it's impossible to find a rust free old Ford truck here. I wanted to convert it to a 4x4 but just don't have the heart to alter such a nice truck. It's a Ranger XLT with cold A/C, 460/4bbl, automatic & n o rust. It has some dings here and there but is really in very straight shape. It's licensed and I drive it whenever I get the chance.$5500 or best offer. 5026648256.

Anybody who would make such a dumb post in a truck thread does not even deserve to live where they need to worry about a President, they need sent out on a boat into the middle of the ocean with a loaf of bread and a gallon of water.
