Reliability of 70's/80's Fords?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for my first car, so reliability and ease of maintenance are my two big deciding factors. I'm looking at a 1977 F-150 short bed, a 1979 T-bird, a 1983 T-bird, and a 1978 Ranchero. 

So, first off, are there notable things I should regarding these four Fords? For example, I know that the 88 T-bird Turbo coupe had a bit of an issue with the head gasket failing.

Second, if these four cars are all poor choices, what should I be looking for, and why?

Any other input is greatly appreciated as well. Thanks.
