Beautiful big block Ford.  I imagine it will spin the tires pretty easy if you get too happy with the gas pedal.

Nice truck. My son is a mechanic at a ford dealer. He will like that when I show him. He has an old beater f150. 1984 model, with rebuilt 302 , 4 barrel , headers and duals. Fun to drive. Noel.

The engine compartment is clean enough to eat off of. Nice work!

Gonna paint it cardinal red just like stock:-) 

 

Funny story.. I bought this truck when I was 16 in high school.  Had it for 5 years.. When i moved to the city and went to college, i sold it and bought a honda civic to be economical.  Once i graduated college and had a good job, i found the truck by chance on craigslist and bought it back!!!  Same person i sold it to, he took great care of it!

 

I bought a 2007 Silverado Z71 shortly after ( i still had my old ford though).  The Silverado had under 36000 miles and it burnt a quart of oil every 1000 miles!!!  2 GM dealerships told me it was normal.  One dealer said it was due to low compression rings they are designed that way!?!! hahaha.  I was so mad, i sold the silverado and decided to dump the 20-30grand in my old ford instead!  Once a Ford man always a ford man.  I now have a brand new red F150 STX 5.0 as well. :-)

Yep, GM had major issue with oil burning in those motors, especially the 07-08 yrs with the 5.3L. It was actually an issue with faulty design of pan and not have a windage tray in the oil pan, oil was being slung up in cyls and getting past rings. My coworker was burning 3-4 gts of oil every 3000 miles in his '08. They installed a windage tray, fixed the oil burning, but then there was an issue with poor casting of the block where intake bolts on.....he ended up getting  a brand new motor out of it.

 

That's cool that you were able to buy the truck back and have your high school vehicle.  

I sold my first vehicle, '72 Cutlass, in '1998 as parts car due to rust, saw it last year on CL...or parts of it. Kid I sold it too parted it out immmediately, the guy who bought the parts put them on CL 13 yrs later.

Nice truck!! My dad had a 3/4 ton auto with a 460 and I THINK 4.11 REAR AXLE Tons of power.
But
The gas gauge would go down as fast as the tach would wind up.

I've got that '96 with the in line 6 300. All my other trucks had 8's, holly, high rise, headers, etc. All pre 1974, no smog checks (California). Gave that up when the gas attendants started knowing me by name.

My dad had a 85 f250 with a 460 and 4 speed had small truck tires and you could burn the tires in 3rd gear. He sold the truck in 2001 and I really miss it
