The Ford Flareside

This was my first ever truck i got. It was handed down to me from my father who has owned it since 1994. It is the 199r Ford F150 Flareside, It has a 5.8L 351w engine, and was custom done by texas stage coach. When i first got this truck i fell in love with it. I know it is not the newest and coolest truck out there but it was unique. A one of the kind truck in my book. It has run me well for the past few years i have owned it and hasn’t failed me yet. I get so many compliments on it when i drive around and it makes me feel good that my truck can catch someone’s eye like that. Nobody believes it’s a 94 when they see it and especially when i tell them i have a 5.8L under the hood. Someone actually thought my truck was a chevy stepside from a distance which made me laugh but also come to realize that you don’t see any Ford Flareside models anymore. Most of the parts have been discontinued and if i do see one it is in horrible shape. But this is my flareside and i always take care of it. It has gotten me through the harshest environments rather it be the blazing heat of the desert in Arizona, the humid climate of Houston, or even the below zero temperatures in Nebraska. This truck has withstood the test of time and in my book shows how Tough Ford Trucks are. Like they say, “Built Ford Tough”.
