Classic Car Overview

Why spend $50,000 on a new truck when awesome classics like this 1977 Ford F-250 Ranger XLT are still around? Full-fledged collectable and driver ready, this long-bed hauler is a stylish, handsome truck in great colors that can still earn its keep around the homestead. While the other guys drive around in cookie-cutter pickups, you could have something infinitely more interesting for a fraction of the price and with great preservation and long-term maintenance, it will be rumbling on the roads for decades to come! Two-tone paint always dresses tough trucks up a bit, including working-class hardware like this LWB Ranger. Its obviously had a good life, and as a lifelong southern truck, it shows no signs of major rust or abuse underneath, other than just the usual surface stuff that is always expected on 40-year-old sheetmetal. The Bright Red paint is all original from what we can tell (although the white cab was likely added at some point years ago) and has spectacular curb appeal with a soft period shine along with a killer, one-of-a-kind patina that looks absolutely amazing on the steel flesh of this Ford. And yes, Code K Bright Red is what the truck was born with, so you dont have to worry about mis-matched door jambs and under-hood areas, because its all equally nice and covered. There are bumps and bruises and scratches throughout, but thats all part of the appeal, because all the variation and patina in the finish tells the story of this trucks long life something you just cant find on a new or repainted rig. Its also not afraid to wear a lot of bright chrome trim, including the beefy bumpers, egg crate grille, and ample side trim that fits neatly into the groove running the length of the body. The bed has a few bumps and bruises as well, but for a truck of this vintage, its exceptionally well-preserved and is clearly ready for several more heavyweight rounds at the job site. If you do take to driving this Ford every day, the restored interior is a great place to do it. Thats updated upholstery in the cab, with the seat recently stuffed and wrapped in stylish red vinyl that looks far more contemporary than youd expect. Matching red carpets help control noise and heat and the reproduction door panels are in great shape, with only a small bit of wear on the steel where the drivers elbow might have rested over the years. Theres some ersatz wood trim on the steering wheel and dash that actually helps with the ambience, and Fords familiar square gauge bezels are now filled with digital/analog units that show crisp, bright markings, and are accurate and comprehensive - a step up from the base gauges. Theres also a factory-looking, retro-style AM/FM/Bluetooth radio in the dash that cleverly replicates a vintage AM dial and controls a powerful stereo system inside the cabin that includes updated speakers in the doors and two 8-inch subwoofers behind the seats. Other options include factory A/C (converted to modern hardware, although it appears to have never been charged with R134a refrigerant), an original leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a sliding rear window for those days when its not quite warm enough for A/C. The torquey 460 cubic inch V8 delivers performance that youd expect from a full-sized truck and it makes short work of just about any hauling job. It shows signs of exceptional care over the past 40+ years, with Ford Blue paint still clinging to the block, valve covers, and jack bracket, freshened ignition components, and a newer Edelbrock air cleaner. A big Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor provides plenty of juice if youre, say, towing a trailer or installing a camper top in the bed, and with power steering and power front disc brakes, its easy to drive no matter the load. Fords rugged twin I-beam suspension isnt the most precise setup ever devised, but it rides nicely. Out back, theres a heavy-duty rear end, which is equally rugged and according to the door tag, it carries easy-cruising 3.07 gears, which are all you need with a big block up front. The dual exhaust system offers a pair of Flowmaster-style chambered mufflers, so it sounds awesome, and while its not detailed for show, the chassis really is quite clean. Flashy aluminum wheels look awesome on this truck and use 265/75/16 tires that keep them off the ground. Original old pickups like this still represent great value, and one that can double as a hobby vehicle on weekends while still working for a living is a bargain in anyones book. Dont overlook this Ford, because it really is a fantastic truck. Call today!
