1987 F-150 W/5.0 — Decent power, put the truck through some hell and still is going, is very reliable havent had any problems that left me walking, the fuel economy is alright if you baby it, it will get 15 but that is tough to get if you run it hard it'll get about 8-10, can pull more than i expected it to be able to.

She Is A Good All Around Rig. — All I can say is what can you expect from a 22 year old rig. For what it is and what i use it for she works great. I bought it with 81,000 miles last year, not a dang thing wrong with it other than the paint and a few normal maintinance problems. I love my pick'em up truck!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Decent, Beats And Old Chevy Or Dodge Hands Down — Ford tough, but the ugliest generation of all the f-series. I picked it up for less than $1000 as a work truck. It does the job but is showing its age. Build quality is not as high as old Toyotas, but I needed more hauling room and towing capacity. I still use the old Yotas for small jobs.

Bad A$ — Ford trucks are coolest trucks ever,The 87 is the 1st of this body type the 87 F150 was the last year you could get a carb on the 351w, however the 300,302 460 are EFI in 87. I love my truck.

Pros

Heavy duty rear springs made this 1/2 ton more like a 3/4 ton.
Good power from the 5.0L
8ft box  with cap on top  came in very handy for moving large items
Cost to pick up the vehicle was cheap and parts are still plentiful

Cons

Fuel economy was not the greatest
Rear spring shackles  are problematic for rusting on these trucks and a pain to replace ...when rusted out !!

Good Truck For Hauling And Cheap To Repair — This truck was great for hauling big items and heavy items. Traction in snow was excellent...even with it being only 2wd. Front seats had good leg room, but rear seat was a bench type and was suited for smaller people and children. Rear seat could fold up for extra storage. This truck never let me down , but onyl had minor problems with the fuel regulator for the fuel injection...it would fail and the truck would go through huge amounts of fuel and run poorly. This regulator failed about 4 times , during the time I had the truck ( over 360000km) This truck was a great workhorse truck !!

Bullet-proof engine

Cons

Overall B- For The Vehicle. — The truck is built like a tank, the vehicle itself has great performance, but is lacking in the breaking and handling. The cost of ownership is quite low, I have only needed about 300$ in repairs in the last twelve years I have owned it.

I Love This Truck! — Straight six 300, T18 4-speed 2wd longbed, need I say more? This is the best vehicle I've ever owned out of about 16. This is the fifth year I've had it. It has over 300 thousand miles and nothing worse that an intermitant miss due to poor upkeep. If i had to make a choice.... I choose my truck

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

Good Older Truck — For the year and stile this truck is spot on. Any one who enjoys the older body stile would enjoy this truck. Im glad to see that the maintenance cost are low and that it has good fuel mileage. I like the color as well.
