I removed the pin striping today. Now to figure out what to do with the shiny paint underneath. I think it looks good though.

You make a very valid point. Things would be different if the 78 was drive able

I wouldn't trade. Sure it only has 30k but you've already a reliable vehicle with 4x4 nice interior and not many problems right?

Foxbodys are money pits that never end. Youre always going to want to mod the heck out of it and I'd rather see that money go into the 78.

Your truck is way too nice to trade for that mustang. Yeah it's a clean car and all but I just couldn't do it if I was in your place.

Sweet truck! Love the tires I couldn't find any well known dealers online that carried them when I was buying tires so ended up with Cooper STTs.

Thats true mods and no value I know that. Miles are not bad compared to most trucks in my area anyway. Trucks hella clean for the age and miles. Speaking of selling reselling old cars is harder I've been in that position a few too many times lol.
