1974 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT 4x4
Power, poise, and plenty of attitude Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this 1974 Ford F-100 Range XLT 4x4 has it all. Check out the shining metallic paint, a terrific V8 growl, and absolute freshness that comes from a major restoration that was completed less than 5 miles ago! A truck like this deserves a bold application like the freshly applied bright dark blue metallic. It's an $8,000 investment all on its own, and the color adds plenty of bright personality to counterbalance the all-out tough 4x4 stance. Plus, the shine it radiates nicely complements the upper-echelon trims like this Ranger XLT. They had a ton of bright work, including a style line built right into the sheet metal. Plus, the ribbed rockers, flared wheel arches, and mirror-like sport bumpers are all part of what makes this a premium pickup. That's why they invested so heavily into all these pieces Ã¢â‚¬â€œ spending $5,000 just in these details! There's even a brand new set of racing-style American Racing alloys to add to the overall flair. It creates a total package that you'll love showing off. But you don't own a 4x4 just for pleasing others. The bed has protective liner paint and you have wide tow mirror just to remind you that the right truck can still work as hard as you do. The interior feels just as fresh as the exterior. Remember, with only five miles on this since restoration, there hasn't been any time to put any wear and tear on the interior. The carpeting, door panels, and leather Lariat headliner coordinate with this to give you a very uniform presentation. There was a special eye to keeping this feeling period-correct, so even the seat belts were restored. Plus, upgrades are subtle, like the AM/FM stereo w/digital tuner that's a Retrosound unit to blend in nicely. You have the classic Ford dual-spoke steering wheel that gives an excellent view of the factory gauges. And your favorite factory piece will likely be the sliding glass rear window. After all, when combined with the side vent glass, they provide the best old-school truck breezes. Under the hood is a very cool motor. Just like the rest of the truck, they invested nicely in making this looks correct but fresh. So the bold big blue block, valve covers, and air topper all radiate from within the tidy black engine bay. This is a big truck, so fortunately, there's a big motor to move it around. The 360 cubic-inch V8 is a powerful Ford legend. It's been enhanced further with a large Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers that feed the growling side-exit dual exhaust. And when you're spending thousands $$$$, the engine bay details are on the list, too. That means changing all the fluids (engine oil, front/rear diff, transmission, transfer case, etc.,) new rear axle seals, and a new radiator to keep it all running cool. This is a tough 4x4 with a lifted stance and new Falken Wild Peak A/T tires. But no matter if you're on the street or trail, you'll appreciate the power steering and all new power brakes. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission means you have complete control over this rumbling V8 wherever you go. There's about $25k spent just for the recent work alone. So we don't have all the room to go over it all. But give us a call, and we're happy to go through the full details. Of course, you already can see how much value this powerful classic 4x4 now has.
