1979 Ford F-150 Ranger. Top Of The Line F-150. — The heart of this beast is a Ford marine 460. Thats right, its out of an old speed boat. The performance is amazing, with 0-60 at right about est. 4.5 secs. Braking is sufficient, handling is a little loose. Build quality is very solid, only repairs are new fly wheel, and fixed bell housing. Paint is candy apple red bottom fading into shiny silver. Interior half matches extrerior with candy apple red dash, and red and black bench seat. Mileage is about 10-12 mpg, relatively high for this engine, and very fun to drive, plenty of power to pull through anything.

Great Old Truck — I received this truck from my dad who was the original owner. He passed away in '92 and the truck had only 18K miles on it. Now it has 80K original miles on it and all I ever had to do to it outside of routine maintenance is a new valve cover gasket and a new radiator (the original one finally rusted out). Mine is the basic F150 Custom model, standard cab long box with a 302 V8 and the C-4 automatic transmission. It gets about 17 mpg on the highway. Now I only drive it about 1000 miles per year, mostly when I need to haul large volumes of stuff. I did have her repainted factory colors in 2000, and she gets looks all around town. Also, I upgraded the exhaust and replaced the AM radio with a casette stereo. A fine truck that I hope to pass down to my boys some day.

Will Climb A Wall. Has A Dana 44 Front And A Ford 9 Inch Rear. Posi Both Ends. Real 4 Wd. — Have had this old Ford since forever. Bought her for 700 dollars back in 1994 and drove her until last year before deciding to give her something back for all she had given me. She is finished in Hot Rod Flatz black and has had just about everything either replaced or rebuilt. Not show quality but I like her. Four speed with creeper granny low. Built back when pickups were pickups and not cars with beds on them like the ones today. The 460 gets about 8 mpg. Better than that when it is parked!

A Seriously Fun Ride — It has a 429 cobra jet in it. 650 horsepower. braking is good but not 100%. As for handling it is smooth. Its built like nothing else. interior is nice needs some work and exterior is spotless. It eats gas like it was candy so i get 1 mile per gulp. maitenance is easy. OMG this truck is so flippin fun to drive.
