Behold another old Ford Truck? If you didn't already catch it- I also own a 1996 F-150. You can click on that one for more details on these old trucks. This is the F-250, the heavy duty version. This one has a great big engine and was made for pulling horse trailers and other big things. I had been looking for a long time to add a 9th Generation Ford truck to my collection, and I did- but it was too nice to drive much- and I wanted something a little rougher, cheaper, and also a winter project to tinker with. This was it. My son went to check this out for me- and was greeted by a biting dog. I think that helped me save $500. That should help with the gas bill- I think this gets about 10 mpg... going down hill.
In the 90s, Ford had part ownership of Aston Martin. Aston was required to have either an automatic seatbelt or airbag to meet US safety regulations in the early 90s. So- what did they use? Something they already had in their parts bin- the Airbag from a Ford F150 and Crown Vic. If you pulled the Aston logo off your steering wheel, it said Ford. Or... maybe I have an Aston steering wheel in my truck?
