Vintage vehicles are worth spending a few $ if you like it and the body's sound.. Greener than building a new piece of junk too. The EEC (computer can store info( give codes so scan it) The Engine sensors and ignition system should be gone through by someone who can understand them KINDA rare today! also the same is true for the fuel injection system after that expect the f150 to run sweet again. Don't get rid of IT.
