This 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger XLT makes a nice first impression with
its all-blue presentation. But more than just a great classic, this
4x4 has all the right investments in the suspension, V8 power,
utility, and even comfort. It's to make sure it's ready for
whatever you're up for.
The Midnight Blue Metallic paint has the kind of standout
appearance you would expect from the high-end Ranger XLT trim. The
chrome front grille upgraded LED halo lights, rear step bumper show
off a sophisticated side to this rugged square shouldered design.
Plus, the upper-level Ranger XLT package gets a full-length trim
package that highlights the straightness of the sheetmetal. And
this good-looking Ford is also ready to work. Wide tow mirrors, top
running lights, a proper trailer hitch, and liner paint in the bed
keeps this F-150 working as hard as you do.
The side steps make it easy to get up into the cab, and there
you'll see a well-done interior. The exterior blue returns on the
metal of the doors and dash, and now it's joined by a tasteful
black. And the newer bench nicely combines the two. There are nice
upgrades, like an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB to plug in your phone,
tinted windows, sliding rear window, and air conditioning (will
need servicing to blow cold.) The dual-spoke factory wheel gives
you good view of the stock gauges, and there's also auxiliary
readouts to keep you fully informed about what's going on under the
The engine bay continues the blur theme, because Ford bright block
looks quite bold. In fact, we're told this 400 cubic-inch V8 was
professionally rebuilt about 13k miles ago. It was upgraded for
power with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake,
and headers feeding the dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. This
mighty V8 fires up eagerly and produces nice power. That's a good
thing, because this 4x4 is ready for action. It has a Rancho lift
kit with dual shocks in front and heavy duty coil springs. The rear
has upgraded shocks and strong trailing arms. Those Interco tires
look fresh and are true off-road kings, especially when mated to
the Mickey Thompson wheels. The C6 three-speed transmission is good
for both stout use and easy automatic cruising. And the power
steering and power brakes w/discs up front make this F-150 easy to
enjoy on the road, too.
This is the big blue oval classic that will take you everywhere.
