i needed a new truck to pull the trailer. i thought this 79' bronco xlt with the "trailer special" package would do the trick. it has 50k miles, completely orginal, not a restore! should it make a good work truck? took these pics today, ill take better ones when i take delivery of it.

Great Truck, doubt you'll find 8-tracks for it. Kinda like starsky and hutch mowing! 50K what a deal

I started with a low mileage 1975 Ford F150 camper special...

It was a NIGHTMARE. NOT meant to become a daily use vehicle, in spite of its meticulous preservation.

* A/C failed almost instantly.

* Whole drive train began leaking once I'd put some a couple of weeks into her.

* Had a gas tank rust out and lost 20 gallons of gas in the road.


Just my opinion here, but that vehicle might be a fun hobby car... but you'd be nuts to try to depend on it to make a living on a daily basis.

I'm quite sure that the OP meant this to be a joke. :laugh:
