I have a 1978 f 350 custom that is a WORK truck. It has a Cleveland modified engine and a pto powered dump bed (12foot stake side bed)The thing normally carried is manure. The thing starts every time snow, rain, Ice, or sun. It also never has had a problem even on uphills fully loaded down. This truck is still driven regularly and is in the dirt mud and on the road all with just rear wheel drive it still goes. I Have to say ford Thanks for a great work truck. She may be dented, dirty, rusty, and even loud and old but she still this many years later gets the job done.
