And yes, the tool box built into the bed was an awesome option up into the '70s. A crime against humanity that they discontinued it.
I live in central Oklahoma and the summers are brutal here but this truck is rarely outside. I have a company vehicle and it sits in the garage all week long and a lot of the weekends too. I work many hours so it just waits. Yes they do come in other colors but the red ones just catch my eye. I have a 2011 f250 as well that is white if you can believe it. It is a 6.2 gas and is a good truck but the 97 is my baby.

Proof that I do own other than red ones. This was a fly fishing trip to Colorado in 2012. This is a 2011 f 250 6.2 gas 4x4.
