Its A Truck — Good on gas and plently of torque for off-roading. Good lookin truck and its cheap to fix( if you do it yourself). All the mechanical parts of the truck will last longer than your own life, and you can take it pretty much anywhere.

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

Pros: 4-wheelin

Cons: if you dont like trucks

1985 F-150 Lwb Reg Cab 5.0l Auto. Trans. — This was my first car. It was a stripped and very basic model. The 5.0l was very weak this year as it was the first to have the Bosh derived fuel injection. I only managed 9 mpg combined. The transmission gave out, but it was my fault. I was not very attached to this truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Got me from point a to point b

Cons: 9 MPG!!! Slow!

A Good, Yet Ugly Car. — AWESOM TRUCK!! The performace is great, because it has the 5.0 from a mustang. The build quality is typical 80s: cloth seats and bits of faux wood EVERYWHERE. The appearance is boxy, yet rugged. I tis very fun. I love it!

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

Pros: Power

Cons: looks, interior

Best Truck Ive Ever Owned. — Overall it is a great truck. Used to have a problem with the fuel injection till i put a chip to regulate the amount of fuel it draws. The truck is as strong as an ox. I will never sell this vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: amazing power.

Cons: Fuel injection can be a problem

I Love It, I Couldn't Have Asked For More. — Runs great, has an inline 6. pulls whatever i put it up to. i'm 16, great first truck:) paid 600 and put 2 grand into it. I'm thinking about putting a 460 in it so it sounds a lot more powerful. i love this truck though. definately worth what i paid.

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

Pros: comfortable seats,  Great when you have two 12's hitting in the cab.

Cons: doesn't sound like i want it to.

I Love This Truck! — i love my 85 ford pick up. i am 18 and its my first vehicle and i couldnt have asked for a better one. my dad bought it from his dealership for 800 and put about 3 grand into it. (including magna flow and bigger tires)so the truck runs great and hasnt left me stranded yet. but it is only a 2wd which, where i live isnt very popular. i cant take it wheeling with my buddies but its still a keeper.

Pros: strong 302, has posi, very roomy single cab,

Cons: 2wd, needs paint job, insuficiant horse power,

Comfortable, Simple Truck — Was a fun little truck to drive. Had the 351, C4, and the towing package. Comfortable seats, good ride quality, but the carburetor was haunted and would never work right for some reason

Pros: Fun, comfortable, beautiful truck

Cons: Unreliable, bad gas mileage, only 2WD.
