I Just Bought It, Sont Know If Its Dependable Yet! — I just bought this truck and i have to replace the two gas tanks, they both leak badly, theres minimal rust so thats a plus, the interior is good and theres a oil leak from the valve cover but over all its in good shape, hopefully i can keep it runnin long enough to find a 351 or something to put in it this summer!

For The Age Of The Truck And The Price I Paid For It I'd Say It Was $700 Well Spent — i love this truck. built like a tank, looks awesome for the age, needs tuning badly because the performance on it kinda blows, cost me $700 to buy but goes through gas like crazy, fun to drive and very comfortable ride. love the bench seats.

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

Pros: good winter truck

Cons: if you dont have money for gas then stay away

Not Enough Gold In Fort Knox To Buy It From Me!!! — My father bought this truck in 1987 off the dealership lot. Our family has put 278,000 miles on this thing and it is still a great truck. It has been retired for about six years now and it will still start with one turn of the crankshaft. even when it hasn't been started in over three months, it will still start in less than two complest revolutions of the crank. the 300 straight six is the best of Fords' engines as far as reliability and endurance. The truck was wrecked in a severe thunder storm in 1988, and with a little work to the chassis, it was back on the road, and running very well in less than a month.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliability

Cons: fuel mileage was not the best, but you can't ezpect too much from a work truck.  15 mpg is not that bad when you compare some other gas guzzlers

Invested 6,000 In The Truck. Lost My Job Could Use The Money Or Deal A Trade. — V8 351 Windsor, changed from fuel injection to carburated. A.C. power windows. Handles excellent. Accelerates fast. Strong body made of metal not plastic. New brake lines with the lift kit. 9". Fifteen gallon tank so its about forty five dollars to fill it up it has two tanks. 2,000 or less miles. new rebuilt motor and transmission. Truck is very reliable, the shift kit drops, it has plenty torque. Since the replacement for the new motor and trans. been a to and fro work vehicle. Was close to finishing the truck completely, just ran out of money for the tires and paint still working towards it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Dependabliity

Cons: Paint flakes on top of the truck.
