This was my baby up until I bought the Jeep. After experiencing how good the Jeep is as a daily driver and grocery getter, I've decided I don't really need two trucks.
Whenever I need to actually haul stuff, this old beast is really better for the job anyway. I honestly hardly ever haul anything in the pretty truck. This is a '77 F350 with a 390 FE from a '74 or a '75, and a T-18 taken out of some old dump truck. The previous owner converted it from automatic to manual, and I added an overdrive transmission to get a little better gas mileage on the highway. The overdrive was a gigantic and expensive pain in the ass that probably wasn't worth the trouble, but it's cool having an 8-speed F350.
I would have to agree on the ride.
My childhood dream is a '69 Stingray, Monaco orange with black leather interior and those beautiful chrome side pipes. Actually kinda hoping by the time I'm ready to buy one, they have a full electric conversion kit. Would be kinda cool to have a '69 Stingray with the guts of a Tesla.I know the feeling. When I retiered the first time I got a 2004 C5, Silver coupe. Wonderful. Then I found my C7 and feel in love with it. Unbelievabledrive.
