A long bed 1979 Ford F-100 Ranger like this was once built for getting the job done. So it's great to find a V8-powered pickup today that still has a work-ready attitude and also now has vintage style thrown into the mix, too.
The Ranger package had an upper-level feel that wanted to show off premium style. And that well-fitting full-length trim now also serves as a great way to show off the straightness of the classic sheet metal. And there are nice details, like the newer chrome front bumper that helps draw added attention to the special square headlight front end of the '79 F-Series. We're told this truck was given a significant investment about 15 years ago in everything from the motor to the paint. And that seems to give this one the right attitude. For example, the red has a good gloss in the sunshine, but it has an aged-in attitude that will never have you accused of owning a trailer queen. After all, we love a long bed pickup for having the look of the working hero, and the full bed liner lets this continue to live up to that impression today. So while the value price leaves room in the budget of those who want to make improvements, this one already has a ton of appeal in its honesty.
The solid close of the door is part of that classic truck feeling, and so are details like the rugged rubber floor mats, dual-spoke steering wheel, and stylish bench seat. And of course, nothing beats the breeze that comes from opening up the sliding rear window. This is a premium Ranger, and so you get little details, including wood-like trim and factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And to make sure your classic cruiser also has good driving music, you have an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner with aux input for your iPod.
Under the hood is Ford's 302 cubic-inch V8 topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. We were told that this was installed during the restoration, and it fires up and runs with the confidence of a fresher powerhouse. The three-speed automatic transmission was also added at the same time as the motor for the feeling of a confident driver. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern Kumho tires, and this is the kind of pickup that loves to spend Saturdays on the country lanes.
Complete with owner's manual, this Ford has the vintage look, the right features, and the right price. So you know this is an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
