An Ok First Car — Ford seems to know how to make a fairly good truck, they could stand to do a little better on the build quality (interior). This one has over 750,000 miles on it (still mostly original 302). Everything still works on it as well (A/C, radio, etc.). The acceleration is amazing (but is helped with some engine mods). The handling is not bad (lots of play in the steering). It rolls around a bunch, but always grips. The brakes do an ok job stopping it (it does weigh almost 4 tons), but lock up easily. The three speed transmission is a dumb idea but it works just fine around town. When you put your foot hard down on the highway(above 65mph), since it only has three gears you get lots of noise but not a ton of acceleration. I feel safe driving it, but worry if I hit anyone I might end up killing them since modern cars are all plastic and this is iron and steel.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Lots of torque, comfortable seats, cheap to repair, lots of mods avalible

Cons: 2-10 MPG,  no back seats, brakes lock up easily, poor acceleration over 70-75 mph,

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
