1989 Ford F250 XLT Lariet 7.5 litre from North America
One tough doohickey LOL...
Minor damage to the body i.e. the bed of the truck and front passenger fender from the previous owner.
No A/C at this time.
Drives as good as a new truck. Can literally pull down a house. Unbelievable power. It's rated from the factory at 225 horses, but was seriously underrated by the manufacturer. Horsepower and torque are more in line with a 500 HP engine. So why it's rated at 225 horses is beyond me. Maybe they did it for emissions? Who knows.
I love this truck, although 8-10 miles a gallon is rough on the pocketbook. It's exactly what I wanted. One tough truck that can tow anything you set your mind to. I have seen them tow a bulldozer, farm tractors, and lots of other heavy machinery weighing 20,000 pounds or more on a gooseneck trailer with a dovetail. Forget about G.V.W.R. Learn to axle as well as properly center and scale your load and you can pull anything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
