I had a 91 Ford F 350 4x4 in high school with the 460. Would pass anything but a gas station. Tough old truck. Traded it for an 84 with a 6.9 diesel, it wouldn't pass anything... but it did get good mileage. Had 250k on it when I got it, at 333k the body and frame was actually worn out, but the engine was still running. Someone bought it just for engine I think. Nice easy to work on trucks. That one is a nice straight looking truck. Don't see many around here that are that well kept.

Hi, John. Ford designed the paint to fall off so that you would get better fuel mpg when the paint came off :roflmao3[1]:

Well that makes sense. I thought it was because they had to buy back two other vehicles I bought from them. :roflmao3[1]:

Ohhh man brings back memories... Few years back before I went to driving new trucks.. I had an 86 F250 crew cab.. Baby blue... All across the windhsield it said The Beast LOL..... Hubby still laughs cuz when I literally cried when we traded it in for my new truck LOL.. Those old trucks are soo cool for 4x4 :) Suck gas but sooo fun to take out :) You going to camo it or leave it all natural?

:) The paint on it is really good except the hood and top . Thought What I would do right now Is paint the hood and top flat black .Would like too later but just hate to mess a good paint job. Already has nice rims ( American racing) . I watched this thing for almost a year . It has no dents and very few scratches , the scratches you see are the ones after I polished it very small , so I just power wash it and you won't see them any more. bigunn :)
