Great Old Truck — I received this truck from my dad who was the original owner. He passed away in '92 and the truck had only 18K miles on it. Now it has 80K original miles on it and all I ever had to do to it outside of routine maintenance is a new valve cover gasket and a new radiator (the original one finally rusted out). Mine is the basic F150 Custom model, standard cab long box with a 302 V8 and the C-4 automatic transmission. It gets about 17 mpg on the highway. Now I only drive it about 1000 miles per year, mostly when I need to haul large volumes of stuff. I did have her repainted factory colors in 2000, and she gets looks all around town. Also, I upgraded the exhaust and replaced the AM radio with a casette stereo. A fine truck that I hope to pass down to my boys some day.

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

Pros: Good looking, sturdy truck, very smooth ride, easy to work on, great ground clearance.

Cons: Limited load and towing capacity compared to modern $45K trucks.

I Would By An Older Ford Pickup Truck Before I Would By One New — I love my truck I've owned my 79 ford for 11 years now ant have not even so much as replaced an alternator. Just your basic tune ups and regular oil changes. The emissions on that truck as good as a new car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Just one fun truck to drive.

Cons: NONE

Review By Guru95L478

I wanted heated seats, low miles (35K>), reasonably priced (~35K). It met those criteria. I compared it to a F150 Lariat - 1 year older, 37K miles and $42K - could not justify the increased price. Read More
