1978 Ford F-150 RANGER
Three year project. Complete restoration I call it 98% complete because it takes couple thousand miles to completely break it in. Less than 350 miles since finishing restoration. Really needs to be consistently driven but runs and drives great. Was all the way down to bare metal, complete frame off restoration. All work done professionally. I got to act like a General Contractor on this one. Body work done by experienced shop in Idaho Valley and had very little rust from the start. Engine shop did quality engine rebuild and subtle improvements to make it better than new. Demon carburetor has worked out great and Ford Racing pieces dress up the engine but don't make it too crazy.
Meant to be a subtle, stock looking restoration. Silver is color from 2008 Shelby KR and looks better in person than in pictures. If you're looking for a clean, straight, built to be about stock truck to drive and appreciate, this is it. I love this truck, but found out I love the project and want to do another one. I just don't drive it enough. Have had it now for over a year since we got it done. Always kept in heated garage.
Lots to list and just easier to talk about any details you need. Please no requests to sell this truck for me and no trades.
Engine - 400, professionally rebuilt (Bored .030), Rebuilt Automatic Transmission, 4x4, Spray in Bed Liner, Adjustable Air Shocks in Rear, P/S, Vintage Air, power locks,LED lights in engine well and inside the bed. If it needed to be replaced we got it new. LMC and Bronco Grave Yard loved me for 2 years. Get stopped all the time when I have had it out. Just a great looking, drivable '78. Lots more to discuss if you're serious. Mark 205-657-5195.
There is some flaking around the window trim, I have locking gas caps I do not use because it is never outside and I plan on keeping the Glove Box Door but will either replaceor provide one when shipped,just a tradition when I complete a build to keep something significant and that is where the build name is painted on...Nothingelse Ican think I would do different except drive more and get it completely dialed in..
