Looks like a good solid truck. Does it have the twin I beam front end?

It is the twin I beam arrangement. Do you remember the ads when Ford used to emphasize the twin I beam. Everything is original on the truck.

I do remember those ads. In reality the proper adjustment of camber was tricky for tire wear.

Here is a VIN decoder to determine the displacement of the original engine. Looks like the 240 c.i. six.

Camber was not adjusted since it was set into the axles. Effective camber was effected by weight. Toe had to be set with normal loading at the time of adjustment. It was very rugged, but the only other advantage was an independent suspension ride quality. If you used the truck with constant loading and set toe for that it was okay, but if you often changed loading, you had a tire bill.

My brother had a lovely little f100 for years. It always ran on the outside of its front tires. He was forever getting tires for it.

Enga; I bought a 2004 Ford pickup about 3 weeks ago and am already sorry that I did. It is far too complex for my taste. For someone that daily-drives a W123, the 3-valve 5.4 engine is an abomination. It replaced a '97 Dodge I had for 18 years.

I think I would have been better served with something like your old truck. One in excellent condition however was more far expensive than the 2004 I bought.

I've also got a 97 F150. It is a pia to work on in my opinion.

Ironically I have been considering exactly that as a potential future truck. After the nightmare expenses for BS with my Sonoma I want nothing remotely modern in such a vehicle. Unfortunately I'm just not drowning in cash at the moment. Hope you get a good sale out of it.

You could adjust camber...with the services of a blacksmith...

I had a '99 Expedition with the 4.6. I once tried to change the plugs, but with the rearmost cylinders practically under the dashboard, I threw in the towel and had the local Ford dealer do it. I did insist on receiving the old plugs back, in the hope that would keep them honest about changing all 8...

My 2002 E450 SuperDuty has the Twin I beams. It was odd getting used to how it felt going over irregular Interstate bridge surfaces at speed, when I first left with it after buying in 2003. Front tire wear is negligible on mine.
