Description:

1979 Ford F-100

I HAVE HERE A 1979 FORD F100 SHORT BOX CUSTOM EXPLORER PKG. I PURCHASED THIS TRUCK FROM THE SON OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER WHO PASSED MANY YEARS AGO. FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS THE TRUCK HAD ONLY BEEN RUN EVERY 3 MONTHS OR SO TO KEEP IT FROM GETTING ARTHRITIC. THIS ALMOST 40 YEAR OLD TRUCK IS THE COOLEST THING ON THE ROAD, HAS ITS ORIGINAL CREAMSICKLE ORANGE AND IVORY WHITE SKIN. ORIGINAL MANUAL 3 ON THE TREE 300 C.I. ENGINE WITH ONLY 54K MILES. HASN'T ROLLED OVER.(OWNER WAS A LOCAL VOLUNTEER PARAMEDIC/FIREFIGHTER AND ONLY USED THIS TRUCK FOR LOCAL RUNS). STILL HAS A VINTAGE SIREN ON BOARD IN CASE YOU FEEL THE URGE. THE TRUCK IS STILL IN GREAT SHAPE, HAS A GREAT PAINT SCHEME, PATINA...DOES HAVE COMMON SMALL SPOTS OF RUST IN DOOR JAMS, AND A LITTLE IN THE BED, TAILGATE AND OVER PASSENGER REAR FENDER. INTERIOR IS THE ORIGINAL BURGUNDY BENCH SEAT AND ITS PERFECT. IT RIDES LIKE A CADDY AND HUMS ALONG STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW WITHOUT A HITCH. TRUCK WAS GONE THROUGH FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, ANYTHING THAT NEEDED ADDRESSED WAS SO. THIS IS A PURE, DAILY DRIVER. THIS IS NOT A MONSTER V8 THAT YOU WANT TO HOT ROD...THIS IS A CRUISER ALL THE WAY. HOWEVER, IT DOES COME WITH A 5.3 VORTEC LM7 LS MOTOR THAT WOULD BE A GREAT OPTION IF YOU CHOSE TO MAKE IT ONE. RECENTLY INSTALLED THE CROWN VICTORIA FRONT END WHICH LOWERS THE SUSPENSION AND PROVIDES POWER STEERING AND DISC BRAKES. JUST REPLACED ORIGINAL CLUTCH. REAR IS LOWERED 4" WITH SHACKLES. HAS BRAND NEW STAGGERED 20X8.5 20X10 TSW RALLY WHEELS AND TIRES. THIS CLASSIC TRUCK IS IN THE BEGINNING STAGES OF COLLECTIBILITY...RIDE IN STYLE...GET MORE THUMBS UP THAN A HITCHIKERS CONVENTION!
