Year and make of my favorite pickup truck.
1975 Ford Explorer regular cab F150
How old were you when you first owned the truck?
How long did you own the truck?
Exactly one year.
Was it your first truck?
Some of the truck's features:
Dark metallic brown paint with white racing stripe.
390 cu in engine with Holley four barrel carb (stock)
Tan interior with native-american pattern in the fabric.
I added a CRAIG Powerplay tape deck.
Here's what made the truck special.
The 390 engine and Holley carb were stock from the factory and yet it could beat all of my friends' modified and souped up trucks. With the three-speed automatic transmission, it would even slip the tires on the upshift from first to second.
It was the only Ford truck around with that color scheme and stripe, easily the best looking truck in town; the ladies loved it.
- When you have the perfect truck do not let your little brother take it for a spin with his friends.
