This was my first pick me up truck. It is a very basic truck, no AC. The twin I beam suspention is hard on tires but we all know that.It has never left me stranded. Replaced the first batery after 11 years, alt, starter, slave cyl, and clutch. But I was never stranded or had to call a tow truck. I'll keep this truck till the wheels fall off. Found On Road Dead?? 166K and nothing rusted out either
Reliability, and the I 6 Clevland or so I'm told is a tough bird. Reg oil chg and tune ups. Only failed one emissions test, tune up took care of that.
