Summary:

One of the best vehicles I own

Faults:

The radiator hose blew back in 1995, and most recent the starter went in 2005.

The windshield is starting to fog around the edges.

The horn and reverse lights don't work.

Very, very reliable tuck.

General Comments:

I mainly use this truck for a spare vehicle and hauling my camper; that is why it has such low kilometers.

The interior is still in good condition; no rips in the very uncomfortable bench seat.

The 318 still runs like it is brand new.

This truck may be the most basic vehicle there is. I still never plan to get rid of it.

I recommend this truck to anyone who can find one, unless you don't like the idea of 10 mpg.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's great to read good reviews of the D150. I'm looking to buy one right now, and would also love to hear any proper price ranges for this one. It's a 1979 D150 with club cab. In very good condition in need of few repairs.

Thanks to anyone who can help me with anything to do with this situation.
