I bought this truck new in 1992 with 11
miles on the odometer. Outside of some
basic repairs like the water pump,
mufflers, shocks, warped brake rotors
it has been flawless in its
reliability. The old venerable 302
lives up to heritage. The bench seats
are a little uncomfortable on long
hauls. My dad is still amazed 10 1/2
years later how quiet this truck is and
how well it rides down the road.
Comfort, reliability and flexibility.
The power on this 302 is pitiful. I've
always planned to change the rear end
gears, put on a new exhaust, upper
intake manifolds, etc. Just haven't
gotten around to it. Mileage has never
been up to the original EPA ratings
