Highly original, extremely versatile, and absolutely a classic -
this 1973 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT is the vintage truck that has far
more to offer than just a value price.
This truck is an exceptional mix of reservation and utility. The
Candyapple Red is believed to be original factory application. It
has an impressive presentation for a paint job that's approaching
the half-century mark, and it really shows how this example has
lived a careful life. You also see this level of respect in the
straightness of the body panels and the completeness of the premium
Ranger XLT-level trim. Plus, elements like the bright chrome
bumpers and baby moon wheel covers give this classic some proper
flair. But don't forget that this is still a useful pickup at its
heart. The long bed adds extra helpfulness with your weekend
chores, and a tonneau cover protects your items from harsh weather
elements. It has an added trailer hitch and towing mirrors do even
optimize the utility.
Inside is a handsome two tone black and red interior. It keeps a
very vintage atmosphere, but you'll also notice the right
well-integrated upgrades for better everyday use. For example, the
bench seat was more recently recovered for a fresh feeling. And it
coordinates with the two-tone theme with durable black vinyl and
comfortable red cloth for where you sit. The door panels,
headliner, and dash also have a quality feel for good fundamentals.
The premium XLT has some wood like trim on the dash and factory
wheel. And the auxiliary gauges under the dash give you a full
picture of what's going on in the engine bay.
Under the hood is an honest appearing 390 cubic-inch V8 with its
big blue look on the block, air topper, and valve covers. It has a
terrific stock appearance that goes so well with the rest of this
truck's attitude. Even the hood light still works! And the motor's
smooth-running nature fits with this Ford well-respected overall
presentation. Even as you look under the truck, you see some great
originality with just the right hints of upgrades. So while
everything looks correct, right down to what could be the factory
spare tire, there's also a dual exhaust for that ideal V8 truck
sound. And it's built to remains an easy driver thanks to the
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes,
and BF Goodrich radials T/A tires.
This is a unique F-100 with plenty of originality and usability. A
great vintage package like this won't stay with us long at this
