The Truck That Never Let Me Down
NOV
09

I needed a truck that was both strong and reliable, that could take a beating and never buckle under the pressure. that truck was a 1981 Ford F-150 Custom Longbed with the 300ci inline 6 and a 3 speed on the floor. it was and is the best truck i have ever owned in my life. through bad mechanics to overload and floods its triumphed through it and still running today as strong as ever.
it had the torque and horsepower i needed to pull even the heaviest loads.
for example i hauled 25 eighty pound bags of sack-creet and 750 pounds of fencing material and never buckled, i did not have to accommodate for the load. it didn’t even need a trailer because the bed was big enough to hold all of that, that’s 2 ton’s and 750 pounds on that rear axle and it could even push through a bit of mud to get where i needed to drop the load. simply the best truck there is.
