RARE SHORT-BED 4X4, SHOW QUALITY PAINT JOB, 351 V8, 4 SPD, SUPER CLEAN TRUCK!
You can get all the workhorse features you want in a 4x4 pickup, and still not have to give up the cool custom vintage appearance. Best of all, this attention-grabbing 1979 Ford F-100 will cost you less than a brand new 4x4.
This is one mean green machine, and everyone knows it the moment it arrives on the scene. The F-100's big, square shouldered design is only enhanced by features like the raised suspension, big off-road Mickey Thompson tires, and diamond plate rear bumper. But just like a loyal bulldog, this pickup is still approachably friendly. The emerald green paint shines particularly nice in the sunshine, and there's plenty of brightwork to accompany it. It also doesn't hurt that all of this is free from dents, scratches, and gouges, which is a clear sign that the previous owner did not try to take this 4x4 pickup through the mud on a daily basis. But just because he was careful doesn't mean you have to resist hijinks. This truck was built to take the workload with features like its spray in bedliner.
Open the door, and you'll see some obvious signs of an investment in keeping this truck comfortable. The black vinyl bench seat looks new, and the same can be said for the matching carpet and door panels. The exterior green paint is used on the dash and accent pieces to add some nice color and give the truck a nice uniform feeling. The driver gets a grippy Grant sports steering wheel, and beyond that are the original gauges and heat/defrost controls. It has been updated with an AM/FM/CD stereo for more modern tunes, and an auxiliary gauge package for oil, water, and battery, because there's more going on under the hood than when this Ford left the factory.
Powering this pickup is Ford's trusty 351 cubic-inch V8. It has been enhanced for a host of performance goodies such as Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock performance intake, Mallory ignition, and a wicked sounding dual exhaust. But beyond added power, it just looks particularly nice with the chrome air filter, chrome valve covers, and new belts and hoses. Basically it's ready for the car show, except you're likely going to want to get dirty on the way there. After all, it's hard to resist taking this one off pavement considering it's a 4x4 with a two-speed transfer case, enhanced ground clearance, and some of the best off-road tires money can buy. Of course for the days you just want to go to the hardware store, the four-speed manual transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes all mean this truck can run around town with ease.
This is 1979 was the last year for this now-iconic F-Series style, and this one of the most aggressive builds we've seen that's still ready for the streets. It only gets better when you realize this turnkey off-roader is well within your budget.
