Good Powerful engine. Lots of room in the cab, and heavy duty.

Cons

Rust

75

Good Truck, Unless You Car About How It Looks — I like how much power the engine has. Will pull anything. Mine has the 300 inline 6 engine, 4 speed manual and it is 4X4. My brother has a 79 2 wheel drive with a 302 in it. I the straight six pulls a lot better, but the 302 works better for racing/funing around. Hate how much rust all order fords have. Almost all the older ford have the bed rusted out. I finaly found a bed that does not have any rust, but one of the tailgate post is bent =P Performance - Good. Has lots of power, and stops well. Like the trailer brakes. Hnadles better on and off road then any other truck I have ever drove. Build Quality - Rusty. Good solid truck, but the bed is rusted out. Still has the floor bourds though. Appearance - I like the shape of the truck, but the stock wheels suck. I have 6.5" off set whites spokes on mine 9But I painted the rims chrome). The stock size tires are also way to small considering how high the truck is off of the ground. Cost Of ownership - Gas milage is ok. When I first got it it was a PITB, but I got most of the bad parts replaced, and it works good now. Fun Facter - Great fun truck. Lots of fun to drive on and off road.

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

Pros

Parts are readily available when you need them, easy to repair and maintain compared to modern counterparts, fun to drive.

Cons

You'll always be asked to help people move things, fuel mileage sucks big time, engine (302) and trans (C4 Automatic) have suffered in its 28 years on the road, Bad fuel mileage

65

It Makes A Good First Truck... — My dad bought this particular truck new in 1980 for around $12,000. Stayed in the family ever since. It's a lot of fun to drive on and off road, servicing it isn't difficult. The only gripes I have are that the transmission doesn't really seem up to the task, and the fuel mileage was terrible, despite the dual fuel tanks.

Git -r- Dun — I love this truck, does a wicked burn out even with the 302, the new engine will complete the performance lack and the build quality lack, been broke down a couple times with the current engine. will fix that soon I hope.
