You are bidding on an absolutely beautiful and very rare 1978 Ford F150 XLT Ranger "Trailer Special" with the top-of-the-line Lariat trim package as well. This was the Cadillac of trucks; really nothing nicer on the road. This truck has only 66k original miles, uns and drives like a dream, nd has no rust. No rust to be found, nywhere. The paint is the original and very pretty Medium Copper red/orange with White accents. It has minor touch-ups, hips, icks, tc. but as you can see is very shiny, nd very pretty. The truck is amazingly straight, ith no noticeable dents or body damage to be found. The XLT Ranger "racetrack" side trim and fancy rear tail gate panel are in just about perfect condition, long with the grill and surround. Just a gorgeous truck.
The wheels are original, estored to match the white accent trim, nd have very good radial tires. The bumper features a heavy-duty receiver hitch and trailer wiring. The front chrome bumper is nice-looking and straight. The glass is all excellent, ith nothing more than a minor chip to be found. Original mirrors, lso in excellent condition, ith no extra holes on the body. No rust at all in the bed, till in original paint, nd the tail gate opens and shuts smoothly, s do the doors. Windows roll up and down smoothly.
The interior is also in fantastic condition, nd features new molded-to-fit reproduction carpet, ew seat upholstery, nd a new dash cap. The headliner, oor panels, tc. are original and in very nice condition. All the electrical works, ncluding lights, rake lights, urn signals, lashers, ipers, eater, tc. Dual fuel tanks, oth are in working order. All the gauges work as well.
Under the hood you will find a clean, riginal, nd unmolested engine bay, omplete as it came from the factory. The 400 cubic inch engine has power to spare, nd has a fresh tune-up, ncluding plugs, ires, ap, nd rotor. The carburetor was cleaned and adjusted for maximum performance and smooth driving. The power brake booster and master cylinder have been replaced, nd the brakes work just as they should. The power steering operates smoothly and is true power, ne-finger steering... not power-assist like the earlier Fords had. The battery is newer, nd the charging system works exactly as it should. The cooling system has been flushed, nd fresh antifreeze added.
This is a very special truck that you can climb into and just go. Hard to find them this nice, his sound, his low miles. I'm a Ford guy, ave owned many, any F-series of this era, nd this is the first Lariat-package truck I have found. Not a common truck by any measure. Add to that a nice color combination, nd NO RUST, nd you've got a keeper indeed.
Clear title in hand, atches the VIN exactly for export, nspection, tc.
