1979 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT LariatWe love a cool classic truck with the right features and a ready-to-work attitude. That's what's so appealing about this 1979 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT Lariat. It has a vintage presentation everywhere you look on the outside. But the interior has been given the right tasteful upgrades to be a comfortable A/C cruiser. And it's all done for a great price.
The vintage look of this one starts with the paint. It was converted from blue and white to all blue decades ago, and so it has had time to settle in correctly. So everyone will just assume it's the original application, and we won't tell if you won't. Another reason why people will assume it's such a nice survivor is the overall condition of the truck. You have straight body panels that are especially highlighted by the premium XLT Lariat's full-length trim. You have some later additions like the alloy wheels, tailgate trim, and rear step bumper, but that just adds to the mystique of a truck people have been enjoying for decades. Plus, you'll really love that it never loses its useful pickup skills. The tonneau cover lifts up to reveal a bed liner, so you can pull real truck duty and still look good. And the proper trailer hitch with plug makes this one the coolest vehicle at the boat ramp or campsite.
Open the door to a nicely done interior. The bench seat has plush inserts for where you sit, and it feels great because this was just installed. The stock steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the road and the gauges. And as you look across the dash, you'll spot an upgraded AM/FM/CD radio w/aux input for your iPod. It hooks up to a subwoofer stereo system. Even with all these upgrades, your favorite feature is likely the sliding rear window. It combines with the side vent glass to deliver old-school breezes through the cab. And whenever that's not cool enough, there's also R134a air condition to keep you comfortable.
Under the hood is proper blue oval power. This 302 cubic-inch V8 was an upgrade later in life, so you have a smooth runner in Ford's historically stout motor. It drives out nicely, and the three-speed automatic transmission makes for an easy operation. Plus, features like power steering and power brakes w/discs up front are all part of a package that makes a classic that can take the miles with ease.
This Ford has a very classic presentation, and yet, you still don't give up any comfort for that vintage feeling. That's why it's such an irresistible pickup. Call today!!!
