Pros

the truck is awsome

Cons

i hate the milage

35

A Good Old Quality Built Ford — The original 360 had no power. once swiched out with a 428 its awesome. The breaks can be temperamental it handles well but is scary for someone whose never driven it at high speeds . the build quality is great. its a sharp looking truck. the milage sucks. i get 8-12 miles per gallon. its easy to work on and a blast to drive.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

I restored this about 20 years ago. I put a 4" Rancho suspension, and 35" BFGs

Cons

Needs a new paint job

Redwolf

Oldie But A Goodie — I like the older trucks. They are a lot more stylish from the new trucks today. You are starting to see more and more and more of these types of trucks being restored every day. I like to see that!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good All Around — This is a vedry well built truck. The motor and everything on the drive train is new. Ther only bad side o fthis truck is that the interior needs to be re-done as well as the paint. So all around good truck.

The Green Machine. — This thing was emerald green with white vinyl stripes, 460 cid with headers and dual exhaust. Short box, 2wd this truck was fast. Terrible gas mileage ensued. 10mpg at best but holy cow the power. Light tan interior, almost like camel brown. with quilted head liner and rubber floor for spilling drinks on. Bowden to Innisfail with four friend in under 6 minutes.

Great, Reliable Truck. — My wifes grandpa bought this truck new in 1977. It was the last '76 on the lot. When i purchased the truck from him last spring, it had a mere 42,000 miles on it. since the truck had been sitting in a barn for the majority of the 15 years leading up to the time i purchased the truck, it quickly developed some leaks... namely from the engine and transmission. i have replaced the headers, mufflers, water pump, battery, plugs, wires, air filter, u-joints, front tires, and more. in addition to this, ive had to add a quart of oil a week for the last 10 months or so. i really need to do a complete rebuild, but until that time, the truck still runs. and for me, thats all that matters... having a truck that starts EVERY time. even though this truck is only 2wd, it took me through a rough winter of snow removal better than most 4wd couldve. this truck can haul pretty much anything. its only a 1/2 ton truck, but ive had around 3500 pounds in the bed before. i wouldnt hesitate to buy a truck like this again. its not the greatest truck in the world, but it works, and thats what matters most.
