Classic Car Overview

This 1978 Ford F-150 seems to hit all the right notes for both work and play. After all, its a big red 4x4 with plenty of shine, a spray-in bedliner, trailer hitch, and a big V8 with four-on-the-floor. So take a look at all the details and investments on this all-around impressive pickup. The trim tag tells us this was born Candy Apple Red, and today, a quality respray later in life means this one gets to remain a bold and glossy pickup. The color kicks off an all-around attractive package that includes bright chrome bumpers, and full-length trim that shows off the straightness of the sheetmetal. There are even polished Cragar wheels to help show off the talk 4x4 stance. The diamond plating surrounding the bed adds to the shine, and it also makes it easier to throw things over the sides without showing damage. And all your cargo also goes in a bed protected by new liner paint. Theres even a proper trailer hitch so that this classic also gets to be the coolest way to two the camper or boat. Open the door to a fresh and functional interior. The bench seat, door panels, and floor mats have the look of a more recent investment. Plus, you have some great classic features, like the factory-style AM/FM radio and the sliding rear window. And this one was also built for confident driving, and so you have an auxiliary gauge trio below the dash, tall Hurst shifter, and a handy column-mounted Sunpro tach. This truck was upgraded to Fords 400 cubic-inch V8 for added power. So its great to show off this larger motor with the Ford racing valve covers and matching air topper. The consignor states this was rebuilt and now has an RV cam, and the way it fires up reaffirms an investment in quality. It also helps that this motor includes other upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake to give it an extra punch. The whole package makes a nice rumble out of the dual exhaust and Flowmasters. And dont forget to check out those pipes in the undercarriage photos. There youll also spot a complete clean look underneath and newer pieces like the bushings, shocks, and suspension components. It helps give this truck a confident feeling on or off road. The lifted stance and Kelly Safari tires combine with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case to prove you wait go-anywhere ability. Plus, the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front make it in-town driving easy, too. And no matter where you go, the four-speed manual transmission with newer clutch means you get to take firm control for everything from plenty of low-end torque or youd just like to explore this V8 muscular side. This F-150 has been given all the right investments so that you can maximize work and play. So to find it in a sharp-looking classic just makes it absolutely irresistible. Call today!!!
