1979 Ford F-150

The owner of this 1979 Ford F-150 has plenty of regrets. But we think he’s being just a little too hard on himself.

It’s a feeling we’re all familiar with. Regret gets even the best of us, and for a variety of reasons. Typically, we all wish we could travel back in time and buy that truck we fell in love with decades ago. Or maybe keep it instead of selling it. But in the case of Ford Truck Enthusiasts member 79 F-150 Stone, regret means a little something different. You see, this time around the OP simply wishes he would have beat on his 1979 Ford F-150 just a little bit less over the years.

“Here are a couple pictures of my truck that I just recently stumbled on. The orange and brown is when I bought her in 1992. It didn’t take long for the Ohio rust to take its toll. The orange and white is when I restored her in 2000. I wish I had kept her up, because she is still a great truck. But she looks bad with rust again. I am going to fix her up one more time with a wooden bed and black cab, just to keep her functional and not an eyesore.”

Ah, rust. But at least in this case, the OP admits his mistakes and has obviously atoned for them. More than once. But quite honestly, we don’t think his 1979 Ford F-150 looks half bad, either. And we aren’t the only ones.

“I love well-taken care of trucks from the 70s-90s,” says silverbullet6oh.“This one is amazing, at least judging by the pics you have shared. I am hoping my Super Duty looks that nice in another 15 years plus.”

“I like the dash!” adds alloro.

“Very clean for a vehicle of that age!” said ChangSells.

But maybe the best thing about this 1979 Ford F-150 is the fact that the OP has kept it all these years, as shortride points out.

“Great looking truck. Man, I’ve regretted selling some of my Ford vehicles. It makes me sick when I think about it.”

Heck, we know plenty of people that would love to have a 1979 Ford F-150 in this condition. Including ourselves. And you can also bet that we’ll be looking forward to watching this one come back together right here in the forums. You can do the same by heading over here!
