Life might be changing for myself and so I'm trying to prepare myself as best I can. That being said, I'm going to have to scale my life down and considering moving from here across the country. I will need a truck and have narrowed it down to a few choices for trucks. I like serviceability, parts availability, and like older trucks better for looks as well. It will be three seasons driver and not driven on salt. I'm just thinking of either going with a 75-79 F100-F150 with either a 302 or 351 Windsor. The other choice would be an 85-86 F100-F150 as well with the same engine combination. The other option is a 73-87 Chevrolet C10 with a 305 or 350. The other choice would be maybe an 87 Dodge Dakota with the 3.9L V6. All these truck would be automatics. Right now I'm leaning toward the 75-79 Ford. The only reason I didn't include a D-Series Dodge in this choice is because mechanical/electrical parts are much harder to find for the 1972-93 trucks. My budget would be in the 5-7k range and under. Thoughts?
