This 1979 Ford F-250 Ranger XLT Lariat is a true vintage pickup
that also still has the big V8 and 4x4 ability to get the job done.
So it makes for an irresistible truck that can give you everything
you want. Plus, you know something this vintage and capable will
turn far more heads than the factory posers you can buy new
The F-250 is about delivering extra work ability. So that spirit
has always been kept in mind with features like the long bed with
liner paint and a lifted 4x4 suspension. And even the wheel and
tire combo keeps a stock but capable style. You get the classic
wheels and hubcaps, and the modern Toyo Trail Grappler tires have
meaty treads that look similar to the industrial-grade tires of the
1970s. There are more fun workmen details, like the large towing
mirrors and cab running lights. So it all gets the look right of a
classic truck with a get-it-done attitude. But that's only half the
story this exterior tells. A nice gloss to the factory-correct
Pastel Sand paint shows the clean and well-creased body panels. And
the premium XLT Lariat trim means a bright look with chrome bumpers
and grille. So there's a touch of upper-class in this workman
The interior is a nice place to spend some time. There are newer
investments in fundamentals like the detailed door panels, smooth
dash pad, and clean/rugged floor. And the seat looks terrific with
nice stitching, trim inserts, and comfy cloth for where you sit.
You'll even appreciate details, like the working dome light and
wood-like trim. So just like the exterior, it's clean, attractive,
useful, and vintage.
Under the hood is a 400 cubic-inch V8 that's an era-correct block
with a highly stock presentation. These are known for their stout
power, and this one has the look of good care. You'll even spot
newer supporting components like the battery and master cylinder.
So it fires up with gusto as this feeds into the newer stainless
exhaust. There's a four-speed manual transmission to give you
complete control no matter if you want low-end climbing torque or a
quick hit of passing power. And this versatility is exactly how you
should view this classic. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case, lifted
suspension, and Toyo tires are great for off-road work. But this
also has a solid feeling on the road that lets you take everyday
speeds with confidence. And features like power steering, power
brakes, and front discs are welcomed in all conditions.
Complete with a Marti report, this F-250 4x4 is a classic that
revels in its vintage style and continued usefulness. So if you
love a hardy classic, call today!
