The Ford F-150 pickup truck is a classic American car that has been in production since the mid-1970s. The fifth generation of the truck, from 1980 to 1986, was the first of the F-series trucks to have the square body style with sharp edge lines associated with the trucks of that era and still present today.
These trucks featured a choice of two and four-wheel drive configurations and a range of engines from a 4.9-liter inline 6-cylinder engine to a 7.5-liter V8, giving drivers lots of power for hauling, towing, and offroading. The 5-speed manual transmission was available on some models, while all others came with a 3-speed automatic, both of which were strong and reliable.
The interior of the Ford F-150 in this era was relatively basic and utilitarian, but very easy to use and manipulate. The driver’s seat was comfortable and supportive and a bench seat in the rear accommodated three passengers. The steering wheel was a three spoke design, as was typical of that time, and the dashboard was well laid out and easy to read.
The ride of the Ford F-150 was fairly comfortable and quiet, while the suspension was designed to provide good stability and handling. Braking was good and responsive and the truck was surprisingly maneuverable in tight spaces.
The body of the Ford F-150 in this era was made of steel and was solidly constructed, making it very tough and durable. It also featured a pronounced grille and extended wheel arches, giving it a distinctive look that is still recognizable today.
The Ford F-150 was also quite reliable, with few major problems reported over the years. The most common problems related to the wiring, which could become corroded and cause electrical issues. However, these problems were easily fixed and no widespread recalls were necessary.
Overall, the Ford F-150 from 1980 to 1986 was a solid pickup truck that was well equipped, comfortable, reliable and rugged. It was a large truck, but not too big and had plenty of power for those who needed it. Perhaps its most enduring quality, however, is its classic look, which has stood the test of time and is still recognizable today.
