1978 Ford F150 Custom 400m from North America
1978 F150 time machine
Gets stuck sometimes.

Been stolen twice.
Replaced radiator at 76000 miles.

Outer axle bearings on 9 inch after several water submersions.
3rd member pumpkin went dry.
4 stolen stereos including 2 cycle sounds with gauges and CB's.
Took gunrack out.
Went to test drive used in 1980 at 2 years old. The truck was a bone stock baby blue custom with a white camper shell, CB radio and white spoke wheels. Truck was clean, but was very geriatric looking for a shortbed Ford 4x4.
This truck is the first vehicle I ever owned. The day I went to look at it with my mom, we had stopped to put 5 bucks in tank and the attendant filled it. Me being 15 years old and the truck having so much potential, and the fact that my Mom liked it I paid $5,000; put 2K down and got a loan of $55 per month for rest.
I had a busboy job and paid it off. Luckily my parents paid the insurance. Best option was the bench seat, and the best modification of the many is a twin mattress in the bed.
I could write a book about my life with my F-150, as I still own it today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
