1979 Ford F-150 Ranger 4X4
This 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger is exactly what we all want in a vintage pickup. Great paint, an upgraded custom interior, a powerful V8, four on the floor, low mileage, and 4x4 prowess. So dig deep into all the features, because this one keeps impressing you more the longer you look at it.
The red paint seems like the perfect color for an attention-grabber like this one. It has a nice modern gloss and shine that gives it a bolder touch to this classic. Plus, the silver center section and roof are not only a great complement to the sporty red, but it also highlights the straightness of the body. These Fords are quite popular because they combine the square-jawed tough appeal with some nice brightwork. That's why the mirror-like appearance of chrome bumpers and grille help complement the glossy paint, especially out in the sunshine. Plus, the complete Ranger trim, bed rails, and addition of 15-inch polished wheels really lets you know this is a shining star. But as cool at the presentation is, this pickup still knows how to get to work. After all, the bed has plenty of space to haul home your weekend chores, the lifted 4x4 stance adds versatility, and the rear chrome step bumper has space for a trailer ball.
Open the door and you'll again see even more great investments. It starts with a custom two-tone red and black seat. This color theme is continued on the doors, floor mats, and dash for a uniform custom presentation. There's even a custom overhead console that houses your modern AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, the gripp three-spoke sports steering wheel is the perfect complement to the tall floor-mount stick shift to give you a great sporty feeling. But as much as we love the upgrades, nothing beats opening the vent windows and sliding the rear glass to let the old-school breezes fill the cab in this vintage pickup.
Powering this pickup is Ford's trusty 351 cubic-inch V8. It has been enhanced with a host of performance goodies such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers that add power while feeding the wicked-sounding dual exhaust. But beyond upgraded power, it looks particularly nice within the painted engine bay with the chrome air topper, matching valve covers, and newer belts and hoses. Basically, it's ready for the car show, except you're likely going to want to get dirty on the way there. That's because when you look at the undercarriage photos, it's hard to resist taking this one off the pavement. With newer radius arms up front, newer bushings, newer shocks, General Graber tires, and a versatile two-speed transfer case, this is a terrific 4x4. Of course, for the days you just want to go to the hardware store, the four-speed manual transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes all mean this truck can run around town with ease.
This vintage F-150 is turn-key ready for all-day work or play. How many classics can do all that and look this good? Call today!!!
