I disagree. I've got a set of tools that say Ford on them. They came with my fathers' Model A when he bought it 80 years ago. In 1936, he and 3 buddies drove it from NYC to LA and back. They had the time of their lives camping and site seeing all the way. They did see the great depression at its worse. Good Luck, Rick

They had to repair it many times. Even replacing a piston only took them an afternoon. They scavenged the replacement piston and rod from a dead Model A that was abandoned and half stripped along the side of the road. Parts were cheap and plentifull. Dad was an okay mechanic but his buddy Fats Ridder was a genius. They had overhauled the car before the trip but in those days you expected to only get a couple thousand miles between maintenance and repairs. Tires were only good for about 5,000 miles. He loved to talk about the adventures that they had across the US. Five years later, they started adventures around the world but they wouldn't talk about THE WAR.

I own both Chevy & Ford, and have owned both over my 56 years.  In all honesty I've done way more repairs on the Chevies than Fords.  Had an auto trans go out on my 1980 full size blazer.  ALL my Chevies rusted out bad.  None of my Fords except my old 67 F150 had any rust through.  I've rebuilt a few Chevy engines, while never have had to rebuild a Ford to date.  None of my Jeep Cherokees have ever burned oil either, but can't say they've been trouble free, that's for sure.  Ford has proven itself to me and no amount of poking fun or anything else can sway me from what I know has worked best for me.   :D

I have both Chevy/GMC Suburbans and Fords F-250/350 Diesel pick ups. All my vehicles run 400,000 plus miles before much has to be done to them. The Burbs have all needed Transmissions around 250,000 miles, but those 350cid engines will run forever if you take care of them.

Yes, the Chevy 350 engine was almost bullet-proof.    I never had to get inside one, but did have to replace a blown intake gasket on my Blazer.  It was blown into the push rod galley & sucking oil into number 8 cylinder.  The old 350 would pull a heck of a load too!
