Our former neighbor purchased a 2015 superduty new. I thought it was a gasser, because there was NO noise when he started it up. Just a little bit of rattle on really cold days, but even that disappeared in a hurry. And no smell.

They are nice.....heated/cooled seats, sound, suspension, electronic gadgets, efi, etc......I think for me, as long as I have ps, pb, automatic, AC in the summer, I'm good with everything else.

Most of my trips in the '78 are at least 60 miles to get to anywhere, so I really enjoy the cruise. It's factory original, except for the horn pad, and it still works great. I've replaced the cruise pad on the steering wheel once since the horn developed a mind of it's own.
