1978 Ford F-350Review
I Would Rate It A 7 — in pretty good shape for being from 73 and used every day as a work truck and not rusted too bad for only being parked in a garage for 2 months of its life. Repairs: needs break-line put on, needs a new passenger door handle, needs alot of things but its a ford so yea. EDIT: Hood does not function
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Its a dumptruck
Cons: Its a ford
