1985 Ford F150 xl 5.0 from North America


This truck is unstoppable


I have noticed that it leaks just a little bit of oil. I had to replace the wiper blades. that's about it.

General Comments:

I LOVE this truck!

It starts every time.

It shifts perfect even with a hair under 200k miles.

The engine sounds amazing, no knocking for example.

The seats are very comfortable.

Everything is easy to reach from the drivers seat.

It handles very well.

It has tons of power, it feels like I can pull anything with no trouble at all.

The four wheel drive is truly amazing, I went mudding and found it impossible to get the truck stuck.

When I am in this truck I feel like it is an extension of me. It is just a big old workhorse that keeps on moving.

I love the way it looks, drives, performs, etc etc etc

I have owned everything from s10's to silverado's, and was just never that impressed with the Chevy's, this is the first f150 I have ever owned, and I am never turning back.

1985 Ford F150 XLT LARIAT 5.8 2bbl H.O. from North America


A tough machine


My vale cover gaskets went bad.

The back part of the cab inside is sun dried and it is crumbling, but not real bad.

AC line has a hole in it.

Power window switch are messed up.

General Comments:

This truck will pull a real heavy load.

Its also like a caddy. when at higher speeds it rides smoother.

Even though it is a 2bbl. it still has power. I also like the room that you have when it is EXT. cab and also a long wheel base. I never knew all of the things that you could fit back there.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1985 Ford F150 F-150 302 EFI from North America


A mean off-road machine


Water pump went when I bought it, but I knew it was going bad.

Blew the #3 injector, changed it out and it ran rough, changed out the Throttle Position Sensor and fixed it.

Melted through my main vacuum lines and started running bad. Changed out bad lines and fixed it.

General Comments:

I have did a lot to this truck to make it what it is today.

I put a 6" suspension lift on it.

Geared the axles with 4.56:1 gears and put in lockers.

Many other additions and this truck uses them well.

I have put this truck through hard times and it keeps coming back for more.

Best truck I've ever owned and it keeps getting better.
