• 1979 Ford F150 – Rob R.

Bought this truck from a grandson of the original owner with 85000 actual miles in 2006. All original with A/C
and two saddle tanks. Took a hundred dollars to fill up every two weeks but loved to smooth ride of this 20 footer. Installed headers, intake, gas shocks and overloads, and new flow master 40s. Insured the rig and one day my battery operated heated seat caught fire and burnt the interior. Insurance paid me and I asked how much to buy the truck for salvage.

He said $190 dollars. I still had full coverage insurance so I said I’ll take it and tow it home for me using roadside assistance. Since I have replaced the interior and threw away the heated seat aftermarket accessory.
