Yeah trucks have changed. I bought a new Ford F100 flareside in 1973 and paid just under $2000 for a basic three speed on the column work truck. I still have it and it still runs pretty good. I also have a fairly new silverado with air, auto and "some" amenities but that old Ford is still a really good truck. I did drop a heavy duty 4 speed in it in the mid 80's and rebuilt the in line 6 in the 90's. The odometer has turned over at least twice and I put a new wood bed in it in 2003 and painted it at the same time but we still use on the farm and around town.
