VERY NICE DRIVING, 302 V8, 4 SPD, FRONT PWR DISCS, PWR STEER, SOLID STRAIGHT FUN
Every vintage pickup was once a workhorse and each has a story to tell. So the one you really want not only still looks great, but in the case of this 1978 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT, also has unique tale to share with your friends.
The orange paint seems like the perfect offshoot of the original copper that now takes advantage of more modern paint practices, and gives a bolder touch to this classic. Because this truck was a range-topper in 1978, it came with all that great bright trim running the full length of the sides and tailgate. However, this truck's appearance is also is built for function. For example, the new bed liner not only makes it ready for the show field on Saturday, but it can also hold your Home Depot run on Sunday. One look at the super-straight body, and it's very obvious this wasn't some contractor's beater... but there's an even deeper story of owner loyalty. Take a look at the trim tag. This Ford was ordered by district 22 – Charlotte, North Carolina. So nearly 40 years later, this pickup is still selling out of its home region.
If you liked the retro cool of the exterior, then you'll love the interior even more. There has been an investment in the door panels, seats, and gauges to make sure everything looks nice and period-correct. The brown vinyl bench has cloth inserts for individual comfort. So your passengers will be retro-comfortable right down to the original heater. Still, the best treats are reserved for the driver. Your left hand goes on the sport steering wheel, and your right one grabs the black topped chrome gearstick. So this F-100 feels a bit like a hot rod.
This performance pickup feeling continues when you pop the hood. Under the engine bay has the correct G-code 302 cubic-inch V8. But now it breathes in deeper with a four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with authority through a dual glasspack exhaust. This is even mated to a four-speed manual so you can get the most control out of your V8 power. In fact speaking of control, this Ford has a twin I-beam front suspension, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front so this sports truck can maintain its manners the road. The full package is finished off with a more modern set of F-Series wheels and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A tires.
This vintage F-100 is turnkey ready for all-day work or play. It even has the perfect tale to give it a real personality. How many classics can you say that about today for under $18K? Call today!!
