Ford has been making trucks an awfully long time, and we’re thankful for that. There is a great multitude of different classic Fords to love, and, while they are all somewhat different, they all have stayed true to their roots.
Yes, I built a $62,530 truck. It’s not difficult to get a truck in the $50,000 plus range. That’s why the number one luxury vehicle on sale in the country is the Ford F-150.
FTE member 77_f250_custom stumbled across this 1978 Ford F-100 Ranger that had lived its life in New Mexico before being brought up into his home state of South Dakota two years ago, where it was simply left to sit and rot. He paid $1000 for the rig and then had it delivered to his apartment.
In the forums a question keeps appearing asking about the feasibility of swapping a later model transmission into an older truck. While it is possible, it sure isn’t practical. EVERYTHING is possible given enough time and money.
There are many reasons why an old Ford may need to be rebuilt. A lot of times it’s because someone has left the rig sitting for far too long. Other times it is because there was a very unfortunate wreck and the owner can’t handle fixing such serious damages.
