This 1979 Ford F-150 has a bold look, V8 power, and the lifted
stance to take advantage of the full 4x4 drivetrain. And there have
been the right investments to make sure this is a beefy-looking
classic that still get the job done, too.
The Dark Blue Metallic paint may be the factory correct color on
this 1970s classic, but it has plenty of appeal in modern times,
too. It also helps that a more recent respray gives it a nice
luster in the sunshine. And there's a nice overall look with the
premium Ranger side trim and bright chrome bumpers. But this truck
is more than just a pretty face. The cab clearance lights, wide tow
mirrors, and liner paint in the bed are all there as part of a
reminder that the right classic truck also knows how to get to work
whenever you want.
The sea of blue continues inside. This one was built to be comfy
with a nice velour on the seat, a tilt steering column, and proper
gauges. Plus, you have great upgrades like tinted windows, cup
holders, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB to plug in your phone.
It's even a factory A/C truck (will need servicing to return the
function.) Besides, we all know the best ventilation come from
opening the side vent windows and sliding the rear glass to get the
old-school breezes through the cab.
The engine bay continues the stock presentation. The VIN tells us
this was born with the big 400 cubic-inch V8, and so it's great to
still have that kind of displacement under the hood today. After
all, it's suitable for both an on-road and off-road machine like
this because of the magnificent torque. And the way this mighty V8
fires up and runs strong tells us it's eager to get to work or
play. The power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the
three-speed automatic transmission make this easy to enjoy any
time. Plus, the lifted stance, Ranchero shocks, Bridgestone Dueler
A/T tires join the two-speed 4x4 transfer case to keep this one fun
even when the pavement ends.
This is the big blue oval classic that will take you everywhere in
style. Don't miss out, call today!
