1967 ford with over 430,000 miles, cold start and run
James '67 ford f-100. 430,000 miles on it, including ranch-duty for
years.. it's a 352 FE Ford big block. The engine is stock except for the
intake manifold, and the only internal repairs have been 3 new valve seats.
Still reliable for every day driving after over 40 years and 430,000
miles.. Ford trucks kick ass.
Oh, and since it's in Boise, it still has to pass smog (1964 and up!) and
