800 Derita Road, Ste. A
If you really love a vintage machine, then it's time to dig into the details of this 1978 Ford F-100 XLT Lariat. There have been the right investments in preservation and restoration to deliver a cool factory look inside and out of this premium Lariat-level pickup. Plus, it has all the features you want from V8 power to an A/C interior.
In 1978, the Lariat package was created to showcase an upgraded and very stylish pickup. That's why you're looking at an impressive full trim package, wide chrome bumpers, and square headlights (lower models had the round ones in '78.) Ford's two-tone Medium Copper and Cream packaging is factory correct, and it gives a warm feeling of a true vintage F-Series. Plus, all the highly stylized trim provides a nice dividing line for the paintwork. And the liner paint in the bed lets you know this classic truck still wants to earn its keep. This one really has a nice vintage local boy look, right down to the factory-style wheels. So you'll love that this even has a DSO 22 tag. That means it was originally sent to the Charlotte area, and over four decades later it's still selling out of here!
Trucks can often feel a bit drab inside, but not this one. A newer seat cover replicates what was available on the premium Lariat, and so you get a rarely-seen look that also includes comfortable cloth inserts for you and your passenger. The brown with white accenting on the bench nicely coordinates with the doors, carpeting, and dash to give this truck a very uniform look. This period-correct upscale feeling is continued with great classic premium features like the walnut wood-like trim, an AM/FM stereo, and factory air conditioning that's blowing nice and cold. Yes, the gun rack also comes with the sale so it can truly be vintage truck motoring.
Take a look under the hood and you'll know this is factory-quality blue oval. The 351 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be original, and does not appear to have been fussed with over the years. Instead, it's just a product of good maintenance, and you know it by the way this one fires up eagerly. No matter if you're still letting this truck be a proper workhorse or just cruising, you'll appreciate good driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power front disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with the dealer invoice, original bill of sale, and owner's manual. It's a classic truck that loves to turn head with its true vintage style, and we all know how cool that is.
