Vehicle Description

A true vintage pickup that also still has the big V8 and 4x4 ability to get the job done, and it's all at an ultra-affordable price?! Yes, this 1979 Ford F-250 Ranger is truly an irresistible truck that can give you everything you want, and turn more heads for far less than the price of a new 4x4.

The F-250 is about delivering extra work ability. So that spirit has always been kept in mind with features like the tow hitch, long bed with liner paint, and a lifted 4x4 suspension. Plus, the upgrade to the polished 16-inch wheels allows for better tires for utility, and at the same time, it complements the shine of chrome front bumper and the added brightwork that comes on a premium Ranger-level pickup. The factory-correct Candyapple Red now also has tan added for a nice two tone sophistication to impress those you pass on the streets. But this is no trailer queen, so nothing on this truck is too pristine to make you nervous about getting down to real 4x4 fun and usefulness.

The interior is a nice place to spend some time. There are newer investments in fundamentals like the carpeting and cloth seat. This is joined by well-done door panels, headliner, and dash pad for a comfortable and vintage atmosphere. There are some good comfort features, like AM/FM/cassette radio and cruise control. The was even originally an A/C truck (you'll need components and servicing to return the function.) But your favorite feature in a pickup like this is going to be just opening up the side vent windows and sliding the rear glass to get the right old-school breezes flowing through the truck. In fact, you get the full vintage experience with the classic Ford steering wheel, factory gauges, and the right added readouts (including tach.) And nothing quite beats the feeling of resting your hand on a Hurst T-bar shifter.

Whether you want this for work or play, you'll love the V8 under the hood. The 390 cubic-inch unit is already a terrific Ford powerhouse, and this one takes it a step further with upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and dual port intake manifold. So it's a V8 that runs with added gusto and has added authority from the dual exhaust. Plus, there's a four-speed manual transmission to give you complete control no matter if you want low-end climbing torque or highway passing power. And this versatility is exactly how you should view this classic. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case, four-inch lift, and General Grabber tires are great for off-road work. But this also has a solid feeling on the road that lets you take everyday speeds with confidence. And features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs are welcomed in all conditions.

It's amazing this much utility and style is available for such an affordable price. So you know you can't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
