1967 Ford F100 Stepside 352 from North America
The truck was kick ass
Nothing much, just regular maintenance.
The frame began to rust, causing it to put pressure on the steering rod, as it was beginning to sag at the rusted spot. Not sure how it had been maintained when I got it, but it had a 4:11 rear with a hopped up auto trans, so I assume it was run pretty hard.
At about 140k, the valves would begin to tick after high speed highway drives.
Overall, this was a very tough, cool looking truck, that could pull tree stumps if it had to.
Only had one front end realignment as an owner, and I gave the front end a beating that would have knocked the average vehicle out of line.
Would like to find another 6 foot stepside style pickup. Unfortunately nobody makes them any more. All the cool vehicles are gone now, except for the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
