The vinyl and cloth seat cover is plain and simple, like the rest of the truck, and it has plain rubber floor mats to reinforce the working-class image into which it was born. The two-tone colors wrap around the door panels and dashboard, so it’s clean and simple, with a black and white steering wheel that’s big enough to really maneuver the big pickup without difficulty. The factory instruments appear unrestored and are in good condition with only light fading and all the secondary controls are lined up neatly right underneath.
There’s also a newer dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers that cuts out before the rear pumpkin that give this mighty Ford a tough soundtrack, and fresh, tall shocks and a steering stabilizer manage the elevated stance. Painted steel wheels are the right choice on a bare-bones 4×4 pickup and big 235/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler white-letter tires accentuate the truck’s blue-collar look. Not flashy, not over-done, and not expensive, this handsome, useful, and somewhat rare Ford pickup represents an alternative to what everyone else is doing.
