When I bought this beast, it had some carb. issues, and no A/C, oil leak, and no radio.

General Comments:

My truck is pretty quick. It has C-6 and 3.73:1 gears.

I fixed the crappy 2 barrel carb and heavy manifold with an Edelbrock aluminum manifold and 750 CFM 4 barrel double pumper Holley carb; too much carb, but oh well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My opinion, 1973-74 f-250's are the best trucks in the world, sounds like a nice truck!
