Power, poise, and plenty of attitude – this 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger 4x4 has it all. With shining metallic paint, a custom A/C interior, and a big power V8, it has everything you want and is ready to go right now.
The Ranger line of the F-Series was an upscale designation, and this one wears it perfectly. This starts with a professional respray of the bright blue metallic paint. It has such a terrific presence under our showroom lights, so just imagine how much you’ll love it in the weekend sunshine. Complementing the paint is all the brightwork. You can tell there was a solid investment getting the bumpers, wheel well trim, grille, and brush guard to have this mirror-like presence. But this is no trailer queen… it hauls the trailers. This F-150 is ready for work with the liner paint in the bed, trailer hitch rear step bumper, and those 17-inch wheels on the tall 4x4 suspension.
Open the door and you’ll see even more upgrades. The custom seating perfectly unites the exterior blue and interior gray. At the same time, it provides durable vinyl in the high wear spots and comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit. It’s setup to fit three across, but all you have to do is fold down the center, and now you have bucket seat kind of individual comfort and cup holders. The wood on the center console nicely coordinates with the door panels and dash to create a full uniform appearance. There’s a great AM/FM/CD stereo system that includes a power subwoofer and two large speakers mounted in the custom overhead console. Plus, you get ice-cold modern R134a air conditioning. But really we know you’ll love getting your breezes the old-fashioned way by opening the side vent windows and sliding the rear glass. After all, that also lets you hear the growling exhaust note even better.
On a truck this cool, only a big powerhouse will do. Ford’s 390 cubic-inch V8 was already a great pairing with this pickup, and then they enhanced it even further with a Holley Street Avenger four-barrel carburetor and MSD ignition. There’s even a Champion aluminum radiator w/dual fans to make sure it all stays cool even if you’re in traffic with the A/C running. Combine the rumble of the dual exhaust with the two speed 4x4 transfer case and BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires, and you realize this is a great package for on or off road. This is also true of features like Ford’s stout three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
Complete with owner’s manual, this F-150 is ready for the trail, or you could just spend your weekends showing it off, too. But no matter how you use it, it gets you there in A/C comfort and style. So if you’re looking for a total package vintage pickup, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
