My daddy had a 91 F - 250 XLT Lariat, Regular Cab, Fleetside, 8 foot
bed with a 460 V8.
In 8-9 years of ownership I'd say that was the best one we had. It was
the only one we had we sold with the original steering parts, starter,
alternator, water pump and radiator. It was also the only truck that
didn't rust on us.
Previous trucks were big block Chevy Regular Cab, 3/4 ton Stepsides, 8
foot bed. They were 1962, 1968, 1974 and 1984.
The 62 was a bare bones truck with 0 options - not even an armrest on
the driver door or carpeting.
The 68 I remember being fast, 396 V8.
My brother crashed it in 74.
The 74 was a gas hog and ate idler arms, water pumps & radiators.
The 84's paint peeled off down to the primer and the truck ate
alternators, starters and water pumps. After 6 years the old man got
tired of looking at it & bought the 91 F -250.
