For Sale: 1978 Ford F100 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

We love a 1978 Ford F-100 Ranger for its classic look and upper-level trim. That only gets better on a pickup with a cool color combo, A/C interior, V8 power, and well-placed upgrades.

The Ranger package was created to showcase a very stylish pickup. Full-length trim, wide chrome bumpers, and upgraded polished wheels help to continue that impression nicely today. And don't forget, the distinct grille with square headlights is sought-after because only the last two years in this generation had those. And the upgrade to LED units draws even more attention to this while also making it a more practical driver. The trim tag tells us this was born a Candyapple Red pickup, and a respray later in life retains an attractive gloss. It's about looking good but not perfect...after all, this isn't a trailer queen (it's for towing them!) That's also why you have useful features, like the trailer hitch receiver and a thick rubber mat under the roll-back tonneau cover.

The red interior is attractively vintage and distinct. After all, those comfy cloth inserts in the seats have a cool 1970s vibe. And the quality look of the door panels, carpeting, and dash make it all quite inviting. The essentials have a period-correct feel with the dual-spoke steering wheel and factory gauges. But this also likes to be an easy cruiser for modern times. That's why you have comforts like cold-blowing air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth.

Under the hood is Ford's hardy 351 cubic-inch V8. It's the correct displacement for this truck, and the consignor suggests it's original in this very stock engine bay. The motor has been well-maintained, including new items like the carburetor, plugs, wires, distributor cap, and radiator. And there are also newer suspension items like the bushings, front I-beams, and better tires afforded by the wheel upgrade. These join solid anytime driving features like the C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.

This Ford has the vintage look and the right upgrades you want in a classic pickup. So you know it's a great classic that's an all-around irresistible deal. Call today!!!
