My Dads Truck

Back in 1996 my dad bought a used 1990 ford F250 that had about 80,000 miles on it. The truck came with a 5.8 liter V8 and heavey duty suspension. He drove that truck for years , unti he bought a used 1996 F 150 that he is still driving today. He didn’t want to sell the old truck because it had been so good to him. So he gave to me I used it for 5 years on the fram. In that time I had a set of main and rod bearings put, the oil pressure was dropping. Other than normal maintance nothing ever broke on that truck. The body finally got to bad and i sold it. The guy that bought from me is using it to haul wood. When I sold the old F 250 she had 453,628 miles on it with the orignal engine and transmission neither had been rebuilt or replaced. Thank you Ford you buildt one hell of a truck in that old girl.
