Muscle car-like performance comes from a 302 cubic inch V8 under the hood. With a flat torque curve that’s right for a pickup, it moves this shiny black hauler with effortless ease. Dressed like it might have been when it lived in a Mustang, the freshly tuned 5.0 sports chrome valve covers, a factory air cleaner, and Ford Blue engine enamel that really pops against the black paint. Backed by a 3-speed manual transmission with a column shifter, it feels torquey and smooth, and the tight feeling of the truck overall suggests that it was never used for heavy labor. A mellow dual exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers, so it definitely has the right soundtrack behind it, a nice burble at idle and a bit of a snarl when you really punch it. There are new chrome Ion mags and fresh 245/65/17 Michelin radials to give it a sporty look.
