You said small to midsize, but I'll second xzcvbob's recommendation on
a full size Chevy truck. A half ton might be closer to what you
want. Late 80's to mid 90's, 5.7L V8 (with throttle body injection -
no carb). There's not a whole lot to break, but if it does parts are
cheap. You can buy a new engine for $600.
Don't apologize about a Ford. Over 20 or so years I've owned five (5)
Broncos; dated, from '74 (302 and 351W engines).
My '94 Bronco has 132K on the meter - original owner! :)
