Classic Car Overview
1978 Ford F100 Ranger Short Bed w/ rebuilt engine.
Engine is a Ford 300 CID inline-six, rebuilt in 2017. Has less than 6500 miles on the new engine.
We bought this truck in 2016 for our "old soul" daughter who wanted an old pickup rather than the Hondas, BMWs and SUVs that her friends were driving. We found this truck from a guy who'd purchased it as a project that never got done. So we fixed it up and she drove it for her high school years and loved it (and was the envy of many in her school), but now that she's in college an hour away, she's sadly realized that it's not the most practical vehicle to have as a poor college student who pays for her own gas. So it's time to pass it along.
The truck runs great -- we've had a lot of work done on it to make it safe and reliable for her ... and just fixing little things as they come up (besides the engine rebuild, which wasn't little). The truck's 41 years old, so the body obviously shows its age, but it's a great truck.
We put new tires on it when we bought it so they only have about 8,000 miles on them.
Dash is original except for the JVC CD/stereo we installed (for some reason, she wasn't content with the original AM/FM radio ...go figure).
I also put a rubber mat in the bed.
Passed DEQ and tags are good until 7/2020.
Let me know any questions you have. Thanks.

ConditionGood shape overall -- It definitely has rust on it, though my daughter thought (thankfully) that that's what gave it character.
