OWNER SAYS: “I have al­ways wanted a first-gen­er­a­tion Ford Su­per Duty and es­pe­cially a 7.3L-pow­ered rig. I found this one, all stock and in beau­ti­ful shape, with a man­ual trans­mis­sion. I only had it 6 months when it caught on fire due to an ex­ten­sion-cord fault. Since then, I have had the glow plugs fixed so it doesn’t need to be plugged in any­more. Need­less to say, the fire did not dis­cour­age me from keep­ing such a great truck.”
