This 1979 F-150 is one of the cleanest trucks we have come across. After being assembled in Virginia, in 1979 this truck was sold new in Charlotte N.C. For the next ~40 this truck stayed in North Carolina, before coming up to our showroom in Milford, Michigan. Years of southern sunshine were good to this truck: it is incredibly clean. The odometer reads 38,983. There is no way to verify this as the actual mileage, but the truck is clean enough that it easily could be. The paint is in the original color and has held up quite well. The chrome bumpers and trim are in excellent condition. Fresh B.F. Goodrich tires wrapped around aluminum U.S. Mag wheels look great and are sure to perform well. It would take some very serious terrain to get this 4×4 stuck. A 2” suspension lift has also been installed.
Under the hood lies the original 351cid Windsor V-8. The engine is in great condition, runs very strong, and starts up immediately. It has been very well maintained, and the plugs, plug wires, distributor, battery, alternator, and coolant hoses appear new. A Vintage A.C. system has been installed on the truck, which utilizes the factory climate control vents. The engine is mated to a 3 speed automatic transmission that shifts very smoothly. This 4×4 is equipped with 3.50:1 gears in both front and rear axles. This F-150 is a very nice truck to drive, the power brakes and power steering work perfectly. The engine feels fresh and powerful; the truck will tow anything it’s hooked up to.
This truck was optioned a Ranger XLT, with a vinyl bench seat and headliner, and wood trim in the dash. The original interior is in fantastic condition. All the gauges, lights, indicators work as designed. The dash is not cracked or faded. The vinyl bench seat is in great condition. The original radio has been replaced by a new Pioneer head unit. It was clearly professionally installed: it fits perfectly in the dash and all the wiring is neat. The Vintage A.C. control unit works and was also neatly installed. The vintage styling on the unit allows it to blend in with the original instrumentation. The truck also has a trailer brake control system installed; it works flawlessly. This F-150 needs absolutely nothing and is ready for anything you could throw at it.
