Classic — Had to put a rebuilt 390 in it at 145,000 miles, in 1986 and also a new Borg-Warner transfer case in in 1988 2nd transmission. Use for short trips such as to the dump.. Has a Motorcraft 450cfm 2bbl carb, always seemed to me Ford should have a higher flow carb but it runs very well. Easy to work on, it has no breaker points in distributor,.

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

Pros

This truck is one powerful machine. I've pulled with her very little (for odvious reasons). On a dead standstill she walked away from my wives 97 FORD 7.3 diesel turbo. She had a 5360 lb balier on her trailor behind her 4x4. I had a 7080 lb machine on my trailor , my gas guselling Toy with her 360 and a C-6 trans made me proud that day!!  She also has 1 huge cab. Rides 3 men in front no problem. Her 97 and my 99 4x4 Fords, kinda snug.

Cons

7 Mpg. She needs 40 acres to turn around. Rides ruff !! Her 2wd posie  gets stuck alot.

All Work Truck, No Doubt. 100% American Made ! — She was a new breed in truck when she was built. The back seat was another one of Fords firsts. Even though the 1976 Super Cab wasn't well recieved at first ( tale end of " Oil Crises"), she finaly grew in poperlarity . So to me, she is more than a low milage (84,000), bondo free old work truck, she is a part of Fords history. A truck just like her (different color) was also the first truck I bought as a young man working for dad's construction company. Of course he had to co-sighn.

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

Pros

four on the floor, Flatbed

Cons

Because it set so long before I saved it it really needs some TLC on the turn signals.

Papa Smurf — I saved this old truck from the junk yard and have been slowly getting it back into service. It has a 360 with a 4 speed so the old truck will move and pull. The old truck looks good with a nice flatbed.

Ford Crappy Truck — bad gas milage, nice suspension for sperlunking through the hills loaded down with camp equipment. pulled a trailer well. never went more than 60 mph, ever. while it was nice to have a truck, i wouldnt get another full size unless it was a classic 50's or so.

Ford's Rule Others Drool — The best truck I've ever owned. It will pull a house of its foundation and the around the block. Ford's rule others drool. Best truck for 4x4ing. Lots of power and still semi easy on gas. I have lifted it a bit and put a set of older 36 inch Micky T super swampers on for the mean time.
