The investments in this 1977 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT were all about
retaining a V8 vintage machine that has all the right comforts
(including A/C) and still feels like rolling nostalgia. So if you
love a true classic, keep reading about this two-tone pickup.
A two-tone is always stinking, and this more modern clearcoat
application has an extra hint of luster so people can spot it from
across the parking lot. Because the Ranger XLT was a top trim
available in 1977, it also came with all that great brightwork trim
providing a nice dividing line for the two colors. While they made
investments in this one, nothing is overdone. Factory wheel covers,
stock-style bumpers, and a rubber bed mat are all part of a package
that makes this look like a classic that has been in light service
for over four decades.
The blue and white two-tone continues inside. The bench seat has
the classic truck appearance, but it has the look and feeling of a
fresh investment. The classic dual spoke steering wheel and stock
gauges are part of the vintage pickup experience. We definitely
know you'll enjoy the sliding rear window for proper old-school
breezes. And when that's not enough, there's also factory air
conditioning blowing nice and cold. All of this has a nice vintage
look, but there is one upgrade that's easy to spot. The AM/FM/CD
stereo with USB input for your phone is a welcomed addition,
because after all, a good drive deserves the best tunes.
Under the hood, the blue on the block, valve covers, and air topper
kickoff a very stock-looking engine bay. Even the details are nice,
like the factory decals and jack mounted to the inner fender. This
big 400 cubic-inch V8 has a refurbished Motorcraft carburetor, and
so it fires up nicely. It's mated to a smooth-shifting three-speed
automatic transmission. The undercarriage photos show fresher
components for a solid feeling on the road. Plus, power steering
and power brakes w/discs up front are fine anytime driving
This is a well-done vintage F-100 done for driving. So if you love
proper two-tone pickup nostalgia, call today!
