1978 Ford F-100 4X4
When a classic 1978 Ford F-100 is nothing but black and chrome on the outside, and a nice coordinated inside, you're already going to take notice. But when this is also a 4x4 with an upgraded V8, you soon realize that this is a lot of truck for the money. In the 70s, the Ranger XLT package meant an upgraded and very stylish pickup. That's why you're looking at impressive wide chrome bumpers and square headlights (lower models had the round ones in '78.) Plus, this one is complete with the rocker moldings that wrap up over the wheel wells, stainless body line moldings, and an ornate tailgate. This extra bright work works well with the upgrade to 15-inch Eagle Alloy wheels. It all looks great against a more modern application of glossy black paint. But as good as this pickup looks, you can tell it really is ready to get down to work and play. The bed has been sprayed with a black liner paint so you can easily handle your weekend chores. Inside, red accents look fantastic against the black on the doors, dash, and custom bench seat that has comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit. The Ranger's wood paneling gives it a classic upscale charm. Plus, you have great modern upgrades like cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo. As you slip behind the upgraded sports steering wheel, it gives you a commanding view of all the factory gauges as well as the road ahead. So we bet you'll love sliding the rear glass to get the old-school breeze while you listen to the tune of that V8 rumble from the dual exhaust. That great soundtrack starts under the hood. According to the previous owner, the motor was replaced around 16k miles ago, and now you're looking at a rebuilt 351 Cleveland V8. It has new heads, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and long tube headers that feed the growling dual exhaust. With this truck's powerful V8, tall stance, and strong two-speed 4x4 transfer case, you know that the fun doesn't end when the pavement does. For everyday use, the full package feels nice on the road thanks to the C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. A classic pickup with the right look and plenty of power Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it's exactly what you want, and it's ready right now. But the only way to enjoy this Ford tomorrow is if you call today!
