True, you could pull a peterbuilt semi with a 5hp briggs and stratton mounted in the bed of a 1 ton dually if you put enough gear behind it.....providing it would have a top speed of about .3 mph ....but hey thats not the point LoL

Here's a picture of the truck I got, Its in amazing condition no rust but does need paint b/c its faded very bad as you can see in picture.



As you can see its pretty much totally original, its got an 8-track player with am radio in it, original wheels and whitewall tires, original everything the ony thing that has been changed on it is a 2inch dual exhaust system with smithy's mufflers back in 1982 LoL

kuhn,
re-read my post....I did say "GALLONS" per mile...just the tires and wheels weighed about 1200 lbs!...never did weigh the whole thing but close to 7,500 lbs (base military suburban 4x4 is 5500+)

back to the subject:

here's a link with the "A to Z" details on how we used to build up 390's...good read

http://www.woodyg.com/fairlane/finfo/390intro.html

trivia: 75' F150 is the first year of the F150 model that they are still building....it's the "original" F150

The F-100 line started in 1953 and continued until at least 1979 (any newer than that?). Before 1953 it was an F-1.

It seems odd, but the f-150 started in 1974 (at least that is the earliest I have seen). There is one on evilbay now that is a 1974.

As far as the ranger line...I really don't know. The early F-150s had a lot of chrome on them. Dads 77 F-100 was super stripped.

My opinion: The 390 will never die, the C6 is indestructable, and the only way to kill a 9" is to run it out of gear dope. Only problem area: front tire wear. When a twin I-beam sags, it creates negative camber (bottom of tires tilt outward) thereby KILLING the inside of the front tires.
