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
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!!!
