Chevrolet Super Cheyenne: (not shown, but there was an even more luxurious interior option for the Super Cheyenne that added even more woodgrain accent trim

Dodge Adventurer SE: *just a note that the Dodge truck was completely redesigned for 1972 - a design which lasted through 1993! Wow.

The 71 Chevy, hands down. The 71 Ford would be my 2nd pick.

I know... my uncle had one. I think it got 7 mpg though!

He also had a truck identical to that Ranger XLT. Even the same color. That was about 10 years ago. It even had factory A/C, which was rare for a truck in the early 70s. I wish I had of bought it from him.

My votes as well. I wish I had a photo of the interior of a Super Cheyenne. It was alot nicer looking than the one shown in the ad photo. It had alot more woodgrain on the dash.

The Ford. My grandpa left behind a '70 F-100 when he died 17 years ago. It's still running strong with occasional use.

While Ford cars would be my last choice from this era (I'd take an AMC before a Ford), my choice here would be the Ford truck. Many still on the road around here. A vintage Chevy now and then, never a Dodge of that era. Yep, the Ford.
