Ford F-Series Red Bandit
About my car
The Red Badit, the truck I got from a family friend that was driven by 3 generations of kids. It's an f-150 2wd with a 4.9l 300ci inline six with a 5 speed Mazda transmission. 99% stock, everything is original besides tires, radiator, taillights/tinted headlights, repainted original grill and the radio. I got this truck at the beginning of the summer with 181,710 miles on it and have put a little over 2,500 miles on it myself. It sat for 6 months before it came into my hands as the truck I first bought with my own money to learn how to drive stick. So far the truck has only needed basic maintenance and a new radiator due to a leak the original one had. Throughout my time driving this truck it has been an amazing experience. I've heard nothing but great things about this truck, it lacks horsepower but is still a blast to drive. It's not in prestige condition but it sure has its character marks and rust spots. This was my second vehicle owned, first one bought by me, got it for $650 and it's sure been worth the money.
Update 3/30/18, truck is still running great, I’ve done some more personalized features to it, it’s up to 197k but is still a dream to drive, next is wheels and tires then a lift, after that will be the 4x4 conversion
