1977 Ford F100

Ford F100
What to drive when you manage the Boulder Sinclair station for 15 years and can't afford to live in town anymore, let alone replace "Betsy" with something made this decade.

At least that was the story of the black truck like this in knew in Boulder in 1992. I worked at that station, knew the owner (whatever her name was) and decided I would rather go to grad school as planned than take that promotion to assistant manager

"Custom" in 1977 is evidently less than "XL" is now.

Flareside, before it turned into amorphous lumps on the way to being phased out.

I really don't think the flareside box changed in any important respect from the design on my Grandpa's truck from the 1950s.
