800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1979 Ford F-100 Ranger has been given the right investments to retain a great classic presentation, proper V8 power, and a comfy A/C interior. So you can get all the workhorse features you want in a pickup, and still not have to give up the cool vintage appearance.
You just don't see trucks like this anymore. 1979 was the last, and arguably the best year for this classic style of the F-100 pickup. The unique square headlight front end and premium full-length Ranger trim give this an instant distinction. The two-tone brown and cream capture the colors of the era correctly. This was an update later in life, and today it strikes the right balance of a good gloss that shows off the straight body panels, and at the same time, it has a driver-ready attitude that reminds you real pickups are made to be enjoyed. You especially see that attitude in the rear with the upgraded step bumper with a space to put a trailer ball. And the full plastic bed liner can protect the steel from big loads, and the bright tie-down cleats can help to secure them.
The brown and cream attitude continues inside. The fundamentals are well done with newer investment in the door panels, carpeting, headliner, dash pad, and comfy cloth bench seat. There are even well-placed modern amenities, like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for your iPod. While properly upgraded, we like how the dual-spoke steering wheel and gauges still have the right feeling and appearance to remind you that you're in a classic pickup.
Under the hood is the stock style 351 cubic-inch V8. It has the right look of a hardy workhorse that has also been given the right care over the years. The way it fires up and runs reaffirms the feeling of proper respect. The V8 has plenty of torque to make light work of any time you use this for a Home Depot run. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power front disc brakes are handy features for everyday use.
This is a true vintage machine that does everything a classic truck should, including looking terrific when it arrives. Don't miss this deal, call today!
