Classic Car Overview

Its hard not to get excited about a truck like this 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger. It has the useful features you want like V8 power and 4x4 ability. Plus, it has comfortable upgrades like overdrive and air conditioning. And its all wrapped in true vintage pickup style. In 1978, the Ranger was all about showing off a very stylish pickup. Thats why youre looking at an impressive full-length trim package and wide chrome bumpers. They go nice with stylish detail upgrades, like the bed rails and window overhangs. The two-tone Medium Copper and Cream is a correct color package for 1978, and this one is a more recent respray. So you get a nice shine while still having the warm feeling of a true vintage F-Series. In total, this one just really gives off the impression of a truck that has been treated with respect for decades. So youll love that this even has a DSO 22 tag. That means it was originally sent to the Charlotte area, and over four decades later its still selling out of here! There was a nice restoration investment for the interior in 2018, and the result is something that looks quite vintage but feels fresh in all the right areas. For example, the two-tone bench has the classic look, but a taut and quality feel. And it goes especially nice with the new matching door panels. Plush carpeting and the period-correct walnut-like trim completes quite a nice impression. This really has a well-done vintage style, right down to details, like the correct AM/FM radio and grippy dual-spoke steering wheel. The sliding rear window is there to make sure this classic can deliver the right old-school truck breezes through the cab. Whenever thats not enough, the air conditioning is blowing nice and cold with modern R134a. The engine bay shows off more of this trucks well-done presentation. It has a tidy look with plenty of newer components, including an aluminum radiator. This is Fords mighty 351 cubic-inch V8, and it has been upgraded with an aluminum intake and Holley double-bumper four-barrel carburetor. It fires up readily and runs smoothly. And because you have such a strong motor, youll really enjoy the upgrade to a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Power steering and power brakes with discs up front complete this nice anytime driving package. When the pavement ends, this has a proper 4x4 two-speed transfer case is there to make sure this Ford will get you to all your favorite destinations. The sale comes complete with the build receipts and maintenance records however, it does have a rebuilt/branded title. Its a classic truck that loves to turn head with its true vintage style, and at the same time, keeps you comfortable with the best upgrades. That makes for one irresistible total package. Call now!
