Didn't get burnt on this one really as it used to belong to my Dad, and I paid Mom what I felt was fair market value for it after Dad passed on. Not that I'd really needed the truck, (already had Dad's 70 D100 Fargo) to work on and drive? But Mom had no use for a 83 Ford F150 pickup, and I figured what the hell? Might as well buy it and keep it in the family? Right?
Not such a hot idea, I was to find out, shortly thereafter? The thing was a gas guzzling lemon of a money pit, it turned out. And cost me a ton more than what I'd paid for it in new part's, after it broke down time and time again, it being one thing or another every time I'd turned my head, it seemed?
Gave me a real strong suspicion, where all Ford product's are concerned, ever since. And from now on I'll just stick with Dodge or maybe Chevy, thank's very much. It was next to impossible how any one vehicle could be as problematic as this one? And beside's just that? She drank a ton of gas per mile too, seemed sluggish as hell for a 302, and had rust on almost everything but the tires, once you'd gotten past the flash pretty blue paint. Never realized Ford truck's were made out of cheese before? humm....???
