Description:

1979 Ford F-150 Ranger

For sale at NO RESERVE: 1979 Ford F150 4x4 original survivor in the best factory colors of that year, Candyapple red and Wimbledon white. I bought the truck from the 2nd and long term owner, who is a neighbor down the road. He was driving it daily until he was diagnosed with MS last year. This truck was his baby, and it has been well cared for. Sold new at Bison Ford in Great Falls, MT. Nice original truck with factory buck tags still on cowl and box, and original jack, handle, and lug wrench underhood. Marti Report included. I'll do my best to describe this special truck below, PLEASE see the links below to YouTube walk around video and Photobucket album with detail close up pics including the underside.

Exterior: Mostly original paint with some patina on hood, as is typical with 78-79 Ford trucks and Broncos. Straight truck with no major damage or dents, a few dings as shown in pics. Dry truck, I'd say 98 percent rust free. Some surface rust on box floor. Typical box rust over rear wheels was repaired by a local body shop(truck has never seen salt, but that particular area traps dirt and mud and holds moisture). Also one small blister on bottom of box panel by exhaust pipe. Very clean underneath, see pics. Nothing is covered up or hidden with bed liner or undercoat, what you see is what you get. Glass is good including windshield. No pitting on chrome or moldings. Please see linked Photobucket album for detail pics. Just an honest survivor that's ready to use as is.

Interior: Nice driver condition, door panels replaced, seat redone, and new dash cap. Stock save for nice Jensen stereo. I think everything works except gas gauge, it reads full or near full. Lights, wipers, heater, radio, e-brake, etc all working. Glass is good including windshield. No rodent damage or smells, just a nice clean truck that even the wife will enjoy.

Mechanical: Starts, runs, and drives out well. Truck was well maintained, and whatever was needed, it got. 300 six runs smooth with no noticeable smoke or leaks. These motors are legendary for durability. Clifford intake with 2100 2 bbl and header type exhaust from later truck were added for a bit more power. No oil in the water or vice versa, doesn't heat. A bit of bearing noise at first startup before oil pressure if it's been sitting awhile. Power steering is quiet. Shifts well, stops fine, but has a shudder like a warped rotor. Emergency brake works. Good radial traction tires with plenty of tread and no cracks that I can see. With 3.50 gears and no overdrive, it's not a high speed Interstate cruiser, but great for Sunday morning runs to Home Depot or to the Steak N Shake on Saturday night. Ready to use as is.

Pricing/Misc: This truck is NO RESERVE and will sell. If you've been looking lately, you already know that 73-79 Ford trucks are very hot. Hagerty and others have rated the 73-79 Ford trucks as one of the most collectible trucks currently, so prices will only be going up. This truck runs and drives,but flying in and driving it home probably isn't a great idea, as Montana is a huge state with many remote areas with no cell service or roadside assistance. Reasonable transport is available, I will drive truck to meet your transporter and help load it. Title is clear and in my name, buyer will need to get insurance upon purchase as I will cancel mine. Truck can stay here for 30 days, after that $100/month storage will be due.
