You can get all the workhorse features you want in a 4x4 pickup, and still not have to give up the cool custom vintage appearance. Best of all, this attention-grabbing 1977 Ford F-150 Ranger will cost you less than a brand new 4x4.
The factory-correct metallic Jade finish has the kind of premium appearance you would expect from the high-end Ranger. The green truly has an Emerald-like shine thanks to the investment in a professional respray. Plus, one look at the super-straight body, and it's obvious this wasn't some contractor's beater. Because this truck was a top trim available in 1977, it came with all that great brightwork running down sides and across the tailgate. However, this truck's appearance is also built for function. For example, the bumpers shine like new, including that handy wide rear step one. Plus, the shiny tie-down anchors and brand new bed liner not only make this pickup ready for the show field on Saturday, but it can also hold down your Home Depot run on Sunday. And those 15-inch alloys really highlight the lift of the go-anywhere 4x4 suspension.
Open the door, and you'll see some obvious signs of an investment in keeping this truck comfortable. The black vinyl bench seat looks new, and the same can be said for the matching carpet, headliner, and door panels. The exterior green paint is used on the dash and accent pieces to add some nice color and give the truck a nice uniform feeling. The driver gets a grippy Grant sports steering wheel, and beyond that are the original gauges and heat/defrost controls. It has been updated with an AM/FM/CD stereo for more modern tunes. But the best piece you'll love is a true vintage truck classic feature. On any given day, you can open the side vent glass, slide the split rear window, and it creates that perfect breeze that makes you fall in love with vintage motoring.
Powering this pickup is Ford's trusty 351 cubic-inch V8. This already powerful motor gets enhanced even further by inhaling deeply through a Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. Plus, the long tube headers add more power as they feed a wicked sounding dual exhaust. But beyond added power, it all looks particularly nice with the chrome air filter, bright blue valve covers, and newer belts and hoses. Basically, it's ready for the car show, except you're likely going to want to get dirty on the way there. After all, it's hard to resist taking this one off the pavement considering it's a 4x4 with a two-speed transfer case, enhanced ground clearance, and a great set of Firestone Destination A/T tires. Of course, for the days you just want to go to the hardware store, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes all mean this truck can run around town with ease.
With great features for work and play, this F-150 is your new best friend. After all, he's ready for any adventure and not asking for much money. Call today!!!
