Behold an old Ford Truck? The OBS (Original Body Style) is heating up in collector market. Built from 1980 to 1996 (1997 for the F250), this truck represents the last of the era when a truck was just that... for hauling and towing stuff. Simple design, those small pivoting windows to let air in, and bench seats- I think people miss that. Someone missed a 1980 F150 so much that one gem just sold for about $100,000 at auction. I used to own a 1996, similar to this one. I traded that in on a nicer one, then a nicer one, then a super nice one... and then missed those flip out windows, and kind of crappy FM radio. I think I also missed my 20's- and everywhere we went in that truck. The trick today is to find a nice one- as I don't think anyone would have expected these to become collectible. This came out of Wisconsin- and while not quite my style, is complete with hand painted frilly pin striping, running boards, a house sized truck topper, and a "Moon Visor". However- as a time capsule, those items make it perfect. The radio only tunes in country music stations...curious.
