1979 Ford F-150

Up for sale is a 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger. I have owned it for 6.5 years, and since then have put 11,000 miles on it. Odometer currently shows 27,850 miles, but actual mileage is unknown. This truck is mechanically sound and doesn't need anything to be a daily driver. I can't believe how much attention it gets everywhere I go.

This truck is has a 400 engine with a 4 speed transmission (Granny 1st gear). It has a 9 inch ford rear end and a Dana 44 front end.

It has never been in the mud, or abused, but it has not been babied either. I haul firewood, pull a car trailer, and take the truck in the woods very often. I have driven it to Tennessee and back multiple times.
