Awesome! — its a great truck. has much potential and will be with me for a long time. it sucks on gas milege but is still worth haveing more especially with it being a historic vehicle and ive only had it for about a month and i have had many offers of people wishing to purchase it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: this truck is my first truck. its my daily driver and it gets me there without fail. start every time and runs well

Cons: the only issues is the floatboul on the carb is in need of a adjustment and a new wheel/axel seal is needed on the right rear

Ran Good, Needed More Weight In The Back... — Performance- V8= good acceleration, had decent brakes, handled like a 72 f100... Build Quality- It needed the Gerry extension shortened on the throttle linkage to the carb'. Appearance- Was old, needed work... Cost of Ownership- Fuel mileage was 10 mpg no matter how you drove it. Maintenance was simple and easy. Fun Factor- It was fun, more for utility/transportation than fun...

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

Pros: Simple to work on

Cons: Needed different engine to improve on mileage.

Good Truck — I owned this truck from 2007 to 2008 and i really enjoyed the truck up intil my aftermarket shifter started to tear up. I really drove the crap out of that truck and yet it still drove like it was brand new. I would recommend this truck to anybody its an easy truck to drive.

Pros: Really solid truck

Cons: Really bad on gas!!!

My Favorite Body Style — I bought this truck a few years ago and it had 300,000 miles on it. What a great truck. I hated to sell it but I needed to get a truck that got more than 6 mpg.

Pros: Great styling

Cons: Very poor gas mileage.

One Mean Muscle Truck — It has a performance built 390 FE V8 Edelbrock 750 4 Barrel, Crane Cam, bored .30 over, headers and duel functioning side pipes. The transmission is a Srod 4 speed with a six cylinder clutch, 3.75 gears in the rear axle. Leaf springs off a 1973 F-150 to achieve the rake, drop coil springs in the front. Fresh paint, chrome smoothie wheels with wide cooper cobra tires. Interior factory bench seat, cassette player, cb radio, hurst shifter, 17" steering wheel off a 1970 F-100, and lap belts for added safety....

Pros: American V8, long wheel base, stick shift.

Cons: Not enough weight over rear axle, transmission loves to jam up, and lap belts
