For Sale: 1979 Ford F150 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger has a cool blue-on-blue style, a stout 351ci V8, and cold-blowing A/C. And as you look at the whole package, you can see the extra care and attention that goes into a truck that was a father and son project.

The 1979 model year was the last, and arguably the best, year for this generation of the F-100 pickup. The light blue is factory-correct, and it was given a respray later in life to remain looking attractive. It gives this a nice vintage tone because even 1950s pickups are done in this hue. But there's also an upgraded sporty attitude you get from the smoother front end, tinted windows, and aerodynamic tonneau. We're told this was done as a father and son project, and you can tell the extra level of care that has gone into the full package. So part of the big appeal here is the look of a truck that was treated correctly. The body panels are particularly nice, and so the full-length trim looks like an almost unbroken line. Bright chrome bumpers, bright wheels, and a clean grille exclusive to the '79 really deliver this exceptional style.

Trucks can often feel a bit drab inside, but not this one. It gives you a different kind of blues. Good carpeting, nice door panels, and comfy velour inserts in the seats make this quite inviting. It's not a completely perfect setup, but it sure feels like it's ready to cruise. You have nice features like the sports steering wheel, auxiliary readouts, sliding rear glass, a movable center console, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. Plus, cold-blowing air conditioning is always something nice on a classic you really want to drive.

Under the hood is Ford's hardy 351 cubic-inch V8. It has the right look of a proper investment. You'll appreciate the style of the polished valve covers, air grabber, and compressor. Plus, there are upgrades that add substance like the Holley four-barrel carburetor and upgraded intake. There are also good supporting components like an HEI distributor and a newer radiator with an electric fan. It's a strong runner, and the full package feels nice on the road thanks to the C6 three-speed automatic transmission that was rebuilt in 2016. Ford's twin I-beam front suspension, power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes complete a good driver's setup.

The sale comes complete with a service manual and a nice maintenance file. This is the well-presented truck that was given extra care and consideration to be a true cruiser. Call today!!!
