Classic Car Overview

Captivating and capable, this 1978 Ford F-150 4x4 has a slick two-tone look, fresh interior components, proper off-road prowess, and both a protected bed and a trailer hitch to get the job done. So on a truck like this, you also know there has to be a big V8 under the hood, too. This 4x4 machine is a perfect blend of terrific looks and true utility. The blue and silver two-tone grab your eye. They are the product of a more modern respray, and so you get a quality gloss that looks good in the sunshine. And this shine goes great with the extra brightwork of the full trim package. It also provides a distinct dividing line for the two colors along the body while also drawing extra attention to the good sheet metal. It all looks quite nice, but this one also wants to make sure you can confidently use it for rear truck duty, too. A proper trailer hitch, trailering mirrors, a chrome rear step bumper, and liner paint in the bed are all useful truck features. And there are even some nice extras, like the working spotlight on the drivers side. The interior was done with added comfort in mind. You have a freshly covered bench seat and an AM/FM/XM/CD stereo with USB input. There are even provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) But it also never wants to lose that useful truck attitude. Thats why you have good stock features like the rugged rubber flooring. And the upgrades like the auxiliary gauges trio and large Ford racing tach supplement the factory readouts to give you a full picture of whats going on under the hood. Under the hood is a good-looking presentation of Fords mighty big block. Not only do you have a 460 cubic-inch V8, but it was also upgraded for power with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. This mighty V8 fires up eagerly and produces nice power. Thats a good thing because this 4x4 is ready for action. It has a lifted stance and big BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As on the cool Pacer wheels. The three-speed transmission is good for both stout use and easy automatic cruising. And the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front make this F-150 easier to enjoy on the road, too. Complete with owners manual, this truck has been given the right investments for added style and added ability. So youre going to love it for both its stance and substance. Dont miss this 4x4.
