1977 Ford F-150 Ranger XLT
This 1977 Ford F-150 Ranger XLT truly defines old school cool for pickups. And this appearance is no mistake. It's a truck that has been cherished by one owner all its life Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with investment in the motor, A/C, and more. So it has been honed to have the ideal mix of work, play, and overall respect. The two-tone Indio Tan and Medium Copper is such a cool retro color combo, and this truck was born this way. There was a respray later in life to keep its luster, but it still gives you that great '70s charm. Because the Ranger XLT was a top trim available in 1977, it also came with all that great bright work trim separating the colors on the sides, roof, and tailgate. Beyond the distinctive paint, there's an overall appeal to the truck that comes from features that are designed to grab attention while also out to enhance function. You see it on bright work like the wide tow mirrors, 15-inch wheels, and large step rear bumper with trailer ball and electric hookup right below it. Plus, features like the color-matched side steps and large Warn winch add even more to this useful and striking total package. You've probably also noticed this has the added function of a long bed pickup. So it's especially nice that the sale also comes with a (removable) full camper top and camping accessories. This really drives home the old-school appeal and even lets you use this classic for a night under the stars. Just like the outside, it's very factory-correct inside with some nice updates. The insignia trim on the bench seat, '70s-style plushness in the carpeting, and the wood trim around the dash all give this a very period-correct flair. But this truck is also about enjoying in modern times, too. That's why there is a removable arm rest center console with cup holders, an upgraded tach, and the AM/FM/CD stereo is there to give you the best in modern tunes. And because this was optioned with a rare factory sunroof, you'll be glad the air conditioning has been upgraded to modern R134a. That way you can let the sunshine in while still remaining cool. Under the hood the motor looks quite correct, but also quite fresh. And that's for a very good reason. The V8 was replaced with a correct 351 cubic-inch unit less than 2,300 miles ago. This connects to the correct C6 three-speed automatic transmission on its way to the 2.72 rear end. So you have a truck with fresher V8 power and good highway gears. If that sounds like a recipe for a fine cruiser, then you'll also like to know this has power steering and power brakes w/discs up front. This one-owner truck also comes with the right paperwork, like the original warranty card, owner's manual, and maintenance records from over four decades of ownership. This is the cool and treasured pickup that's offered right now for an exceptional price. So don't miss your chance, call today!
