For Sale: 1978 Ford F150 in Milford, Michigan

Vehicle Description

5.0L Coyote-Powered 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger Explorer 4�4 5-Speed!

This 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger was acquired by the family of its original owner, and it has since been fitted with a Coyote 5.0-liter V8 and a ZF five-speed manual transmission paired with a dual-range transfer case sending power to 2 or all 4 wheels!

The burgundy-and-yellow body was removed from the frame for installation of the powertrain and to refinish the chassis. Additional features include aftermarket 15? wheels with 31�10.50? BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2, power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, a bed cover, a reupholstered bench seat, replacement carpeting, a RetroSound stereo, and two 8? subwoofers. When the body was removed from the frame to refurbish the chassis, a Battle born F-350 brake booster and master cylinder kit were installed along with Thunderbird front brake calipers and a rear disc-brake conversion kit.

The Explorer-trim bench seat has been reupholstered in red with patterned multicolor cloth inserts, and the red carpeting was replaced. A two-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of an 85-mph speedometer surrounded by four auxiliary gauges, and a tachometer has been added to the column. The five-digit odometer shows 88k miles, approximately 3k of which have been added since the coyote drivetrain!

The fuel-injected Coyote 5.0-liter V8 was sourced from a 2011 F-150 and received Mustang-specification camshafts and exhaust headers as well as replacement timing chains and and oil pump and gear before being installed.
