We do our best to inspect these vehicles and list the details. We drive them a couple hundred miles and try to visually inspect all the accessories and make sure everything is working properly. Some are new with warranty, some are 50+ years old, some need just a little TLC, and some are project cars. Please read the full description as well as the terms and conditions before bidding or purchasing.

PLEASE NOTE: If you bid on this car, that means you have decided to buy this car. PLEASE, we have heard of all the excuses of buyers not wanting to follow through once they win the auction. For example, don't let your kid bid on this car while you are "working overseas with no access to the internet". hahaha Yeah, we have heard this one several times. :) Make sure you have funds secured before bidding. We are serious sellers, we hope you are a serious buyer. If bidding on eBay, but you just can't wait for the action to end? Contact Drive Motor Garage sales at 801-839-4224 and make an offer. To protect you as the buyer, we will still complete the transaction through eBay's "End Auction Early" selling to you as The Highest Bidder. This also complies with eBay's terms and conditions. By bidding on this vehicle you are agreeing to Drive Motor Garage's Terms & Conditions. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page to read the full Terms & Conditions.

We had to relist to fix an error in the YouTube Video Link. Sorry! This 1979 Ford F150 is a rare and GORGEOUS truck! NOW, before y'all go sayin' this isn't a TRUE Highboy. You are CORRECT! This is not necessarily a TRUE Highboy (which are actually pre 1977.5 F150's 4WD Trucks with a divorced transfer case, blah, blah, blah), but it emulates everything the look & feel of a Highboy. It was carefully maintained as is evidenced by the condition of everything. The undercarriage black, clean, and sealed with industrial rubberized undercoating. It was well kept prior to it being restored. Real Ford quality OOZES from every square inch of this F150 and it is AMAZING inside, out, and under! It is in a beautiful 100% SOLID condition. The MONSTER 460 V8 motor was rebuilt using only the best performance components. The engine as well as the rest of the powertrain operates as good as new.

This Bad Ass 1979 Ford F150 Ranger XLT 4WD shortbed will be the PRIDE and JOY of whoever owns it!! It has a GORGEOUS smooth METALLIC BLUE paint with a glorious classic two-tone white look. The curb appeal is truly AMAZING! On the inside it sports a fully restored interior, beautiful custom upholstered seats, and brand new carpet floor and door panels. The 400HP 460 V8 has been performance built and tuned by an ASE Certified Master Mechanics. Yet, this is a truck that has been maintained in a condition to drive and enjoy. You won't be afraid to get out and dominate the roads with this rock solid Ford! Be sure to see the video below! If you have bass, turn it up! It sounds awesome!

Wheels look great and tires have good tread. Everything else works awesome!
