96 F150 shorty diesel............
picked up a plain jane 96 F150 today, 4.9 efi/E4OD dual tanks, no toys!
was looking for a 89-92 ranger supercab but this is probably same weight.
1980 Mercedes benz 2.4 litre 4cyl diesel going into it!
pics will come as I progress. I am guessing at aprox 3500lbs curb weight as it sits, 4cyl diesel w/manual trans should cut 2-300lbs off that.
will be slow and smelly but will be good for 100km/hr and should pull well over 30mpg if I don't thrash it. the car was in the same weight range and was pulling right around 40mpg . would love a 5spd but the car is only a 4spd so that's what the truck will get.
summer: RIP 72 Bronc, 68 Merc,
