Classic Car Overview
1978 Ford F-150 Ranger XLT 4X4 Short bed Truck
Original 62,000 mile truck with new upgraded engine and transmission.
Interior and trim is the Ranger XLT package.
I had the Factory 400M swapped out to upgrade to a new Ford 460 crate motor with Edelbrock aluminum intake and 750cfm 4-barrel carburetor. It has the full MSD ignition package.
The crate motor is considered to be a Class II. So she is just slightly modified and should produce around 380 HP.
The bullet-proof factory C6 automatic transmission was also rebuilt with a new heavy-duty unit.
Both the engine and tranny have just barely over 1000 miles on them.
I also replaced the radiator, belts and hoses, rebuilt the factory air conditioning, installed new steering bushings, and ordered the heavy-duty "Red Head" brand steering gearbox from Auburn, Washington. She drives down the road like new.
The truck was ordered with the rare optional front "quad-shocks", and the front and rear suspension replaced with new Rancho off-road shocks.
The rare Ford factory rims were refinished and the truck rides on new BFG rubber.
The body is original and is rust free.
The truck is adult driven and not abused or taken off-roading. However, she is very capable.
The truck is a head turner and I always get complements when I get to take her out on a sunny day. It is rare to see these trucks anymore in this condition. Solid, and just built American tough.
She is an awesome truck for driving in town, or taking the back roads with the back sliding rear window open with an elbow hanging out the window listening to some Haggard, Waylon, or Hank Jr. classic country tunes.
I am the second owner, and she comes with the original build / order sheet when she was purchased new at Ford.
The truck is garage kept in Nashville, Tennessee.
