Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1979 Ford F-100 has a great classic look that comes from a well-respected package that also has some extra shine. Plus, with all the right real truck features - including V8 power and a liner paint in the bed - it's far more than just a polished gem for your garage.
Ford people love the square headlights that were only available at the very end of the iconic sixth-gen F-Series. So this is already quite a desirable setup before you dive into the details. The red paint is a later application. It has that ideal balance where it has the gloss to show off the good lines in the sheet metal, but no one will also ever accuse you of owning a truck that only travels on a trailer. The same goes for the bumpers. The front one has a nice shine to go with the newer grille, but the rear one is a proper HD setup with a tow ball. Add in wide trailering mirrors and a proper liner paint in the truck bed, and you have the right mix of style and ability.
The interior has a nice deep black that slows off some thoughtful investments. The door panels, carpeting, and dash pad have a fresh and dash look. But we bet your favorite piece will be the seat. It looks like a classic bench, but it is done with modern memory foam for maximum comfort. There are nice classic details like the bright gauges and sliding rear window. And these are joined by worthwhile upgrades, like the Grant sports steering wheel and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth.
The 302 cubic-inch V8 has the tidy look of a proper powerhouse. It has a little extra flair with the polished air grabber and valve covers. They not only invested in added flair, but also quality components like the MSD distributor. That's why this V8 fires up with ease and runs strong. This F-100 wants you to get that old-school truck vibe that lets you feel the road. That's why you even have the classic column-shifter three-speed manual transmission. But it also likes to be a good driver with features like wide modern tires and front disc brakes.
This is a classic truck that has been given investments for both style and substance. So don't let this deal slip away, call today!
