These trucks were built to tow and haul at freeway speeds, ith enough power to pass lesser vehicles going uphill.
Mechanically, he's just about perfect. Easy cold starting, hoke warms up the engine, ick it down for a smooth idle and you are ready to go. Brakes are great, teering tight, uspension supple and strong.
Cosmetically, he's beautiful. Mostly original Dark Brown Metallic paint with factory Tan two-tone accent still shines and looks great. Brightwork, rim, lass, tc. are excellent. Original wheels and hubcaps, ice radial tires. Grill is excellent with no cracks or breaks. The body itself is very straight, nd has no outer body, loor, ocker, tc. rust issues... very dry and rust free.
The interior is all original with the exception of the radio (upgraded and working), nd the added Indian Blanket seat cover. The original seat does have wear in the driver's side area, s does the carpet. The original headliner has shrunken a bit, s they all do. Dash is perfect with no cracks, oor panels are excellent, nd the overall interior impression is one of clean, ell-cared-for quality. The heater and defrost work very well, ll the gauges work, ll the lights, ignals, tc. work. Even the horn works.
In short, his truck is a wonderful example of Ford's finest era of truck building. You'd be hard-pressed to find a nicer truck anywhere near this price range.
The truck is also outfitted with a heavy-duty receiver hitch and trailer wiring out back, nd a trailer brake controller in the cabin. The removable hitch and ball also come with it.
