This 1978 Ford F-100 is a V8 pickup that keeps close to its factory-style package. But as you go through it all, you'll see some nice upgrades that put the cherry on top of this affordable classic.
This generation Ford F-Series is one of the most iconic tough trucks out there, and the '78s are particularly desirable because they were the debut for the distinct front end that only lasted two years. This was born a Raven Black pickup, and so that instantly gives it added appeal. It was updated later in life, but it doesn't take away from the driver-ready feeling. After all, you want a truck you're not afraid to enjoy to the fullest. They also gave this some upgrade in attitude, like the big dual exhaust tips coming out each side, tinted windows, and the upgraded 18-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
Inside, the factory-correct red looks particularly nice against the exterior black. They even invested in newer door panel inserts, dash pad, visors, and headliner. And we particularly like the updated bench with the striking red inserts and red piping on the clean black. The factory dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of everything, and the upgraded AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette makes it easy to get your favorite driving music.
Under the hood is proper blue oval power with the 302 cubic-inch V8. It even looks nice with the bold blue valve covers and matching air toper. But what you'll really love are the investments in quality, like the MSD coil, newer plug wires, and a newer carburetor. It's a nice-running motor that's ready to hit the road thanks to easy driving features like power steering and the three-speed automatic transmission. There are even cool details that mix practicality with style. For example, the upgraded front disc brakes have red calipers peeking out from behind the polished alloys. And those upgraded wheels allow you to fit more modern and grippy tires.
This F-100 has the right look for a fun classic that's ready for work or play, and it has a great gone-tomorrow price. That's why you need to call today!
