1962 Ford F-350Review
1962 F-350 Ford Pickup Truck — I Have a 1962 Ford F-350 with a 292 cid V8 motor. This truck has been in our family since it was new. The first motor was replaced years ago, and the one it has now is not far from the same fate. Although 2-WD. This truck has seen the crappiest roads you can think of, (mud up to the axles, snow up to the headlights, off road terrain, simply because of where my Dad used to live, and the roads the had back then) and wore out countless sets of tire chains. The original box is long gone. Shook to pieces by the roads back then, and by its own roughness(being a 350, the spring are fairly stiff). Yet This truck can sit for months, I put a battery in it and it starts up like nothin and drives perfectly. This truck was 'REALLY BUILT FORD TOUGH'. Todays trucks wouldn't stand a chance.
