Those wheels are a dead giveaway that this 1978 Ford F-150 Custom Restomod is something special. And you really get to showcase them the way you want with the adjustable air ride suspension. Plus, a terrific color combo, A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and shining fuel-injected V8 power create an awesome total package.
There is something quite alluring about the full presentation. We're told that before this was a restomod, it was a one-owner pickup looked after by an older gentleman. The factory-correct two-tone Wimbledon White and Dark Jade Metallic have been preserved to reflect that legacy. So the presentation has just the right touch of age so that you get to tell this story with pride. But this is more than just a nice classic. The color-matched liner paint in the bed is a clue there's something more going on here. And while those 20-inch solid steel wheels go so nicely with the paint, we all know they are a bright announcement of a modern investment.
More of the great color coordination await you inside. We know this was born with a distinct green interior, but there has also been plenty more invested here. The bench seat is custom finished in a supple two-tone green and white, and there are even integrated cup holders. Matching door panels, fresh carpeting, a nice headliner, and a custom green a chrome steering wheel makes for a well-coordinated and premium package. You've got terrific comfort features, like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth. The tilt steering column helps you see the upgraded Dakota Digital gauge package. And there's a remote control for the full air ride suspension. So you can watch jaws drop as you dial-in the ideal stance at every car show and cruise-in.
This the kind of truck that you're going to be showing off, and so they made sure the engine bay is ready for primetime, too. There's a ton of polished components, like the valve covers, air topper, alternator, compressor, pulleys, and more. The consignor states the low odometer (under 550 miles) represents the build and engine install, and this has the fresh look to really back that up. It's a 347 cubic-inch performance crate motor from BluePrint Engines. This features aluminum heads, Hedman headers, and topped with a Holley sniper electronic fuel injection system you control from the cab. It fires right up, like a proper FI machine should, and while this is a strong and powerful pickup, there's more going on here. The transmission is a four-speed automatic with highway-friendly overdrive, and this truck stays running cooler with a large aluminum radiator w/electric fans. So it was built for easy driving. There's even an upgraded four-link rear end, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an awesome restomod with a cool story and all the best in power and comfort. It's a true total package, and that's why we know you have to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
