Real Truck

Now that I have figured out how to reduce the size of the pictures here are some better ones.

I bought this truck new in 77. Still only has 62k original miles. It has a 400m engine with a Offy manifold
and Holly 4brl. I put extra leafs in the front and added overloads in the back to carry the big camper. Only
drawback on the early 77 was the cylinder power steering which gave a wide turning radius. Sometimes
tough to turn on tight mountain roads. They fixed this late 77 and for the 78 model. Still has original paint.
Has power but is a gas hog. I have 55 gallons of saddle tanks because of it. Is a rolling bomb if I ever get
hit with those tanks full.

Awesome! Would have bought one of those old Fords in 3/4 ton with a 460 and 4-spd over my Superduty if I had/could find one in good enough condition.

I demand more pictures!

Yeah, it took me a few tries to upload more then one picture, I dropped the cameras pixel size down to its lowest. But thats only on picture that I will take, the old ones I e-mail to myself them just save them as an attachment to my desk top and use them from there. My brother-in-law had a 78 F-150, looked like a little big foot, he even drove it to Colorado to go skiing.
