1975 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT with service body and custom rack. Purchased July 2017 from a small town in western Montana.

New engine was installed summer 2019 and was upgraded from the original 360 to 390. The entire fuel system from tank (upgraded to 35 gallons), lines, fuel pump, and carburetor has been replaced. Entire cooling system from radiator, hoses, thermostat, and water pump have been replaced. New off road exhaust system installed spring 2019. Shocks replaced and upgraded to off road spring 2019. Truck is currently equipped with studded snow tires, new summer tires on separate rims purchased fall 2019 are included in the sale. New battery, distributor, wires, cap and rotor installed this year. Too many repairs, replacements, and upgrades to list. Receipts are available, if interested.
This is not a project truck. It looks good and runs strong. Can operate in full time 4 wheel drive (locking hubs) if desired. Equipped with auxiliary fuel tank and compressor. Ready to be your overland camper or daily driver. The service body makes this one truly unique and it may be the last of it's kind in this condition. Store your camping or survival gear in it all year long. Brand new awning and high-lift jack are included in the purchase.
