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

I own and have owned this style F150. Big engines are easy to set in place, and they can surprise most anyone at a red light. Crusty versions are easy to find, clean is what I look for...

Ive only drove it for 5 days, so only time will tell. However I am reading negative reviews about the 10 speed transmission. So we will see how that turns out. Read More

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
