This truck never let me down. I have had other fords and they had done me great. But that 61 got me back and forth to work when times were tough for me in the middle 80s. Ford is an American truck. Right now we are fight with the market overseas. Please do not Knock Chevy in your commercials. You would get more points saying that if you do not buy a ford please buy a chevy. If you did that I would never think of buying any thing but a FORD. Please Knock all the other overseas manufactures not the rest of our country men..
