Good Old Truck — The 73-79 Ford trucks were my first trucks. I'm restoring a 79 Supercab 4x4 now...I love the looks, 4x4 ability, and ease of repairs to these trucks..They just have a great look

Will Climb A Wall. Has A Dana 44 Front And A Ford 9 Inch Rear. Posi Both Ends. Real 4 Wd. — Have had this old Ford since forever. Bought her for 700 dollars back in 1994 and drove her until last year before deciding to give her something back for all she had given me. She is finished in Hot Rod Flatz black and has had just about everything either replaced or rebuilt. Not show quality but I like her. Four speed with creeper granny low. Built back when pickups were pickups and not cars with beds on them like the ones today. The 460 gets about 8 mpg. Better than that when it is parked!

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

Pros: Nothing. Hard on gas, terrible ride, noisy as hell.

Cons: Like I said

Awesome By XEODGuy

The ecoboost engine is fantastic, lots of low end grunt, very smooth and effortless but, they should have come with a manual mode selection (different mapping) for better fuel economy. The 3.73 rear e... Read More

Good Allround Pickup By golfnut_bill
