This 1978 Ford F-150 4x4 has the stance, style, and substance. The slick maroon paint, comfy A/C interior, and V8 power are the features that attract you, but as you look closer, you'll love the level of detail that makes this both unique and useful.
This F-150 announces its presence with its bold square-shouldered design and a raised 4x4 suspension. So we like it in the glossy maroon. It looks like someone gave bright red a more serious attitude. The paint joins the bright chrome .....
bumpers and the unique 1978 grille to give this plenty of appeal. And the straight panels give it a quality appearance. It makes for an overall impressive truck, but it'll never be considered too fancy to keep it from being a proper useful pickup. After all, the drop-in liner in the bed not only looks good, but it's also there to rote the steel from whatever weekend activity you're up to. The 15-inch Pacer wheels have a robust design and a nice shine that ties brightwork and utility packages together.
Open the door to an interior with thoughtful investments. The maroon returns inside on the door tops and dash, and they even upgraded the cloth inserts of the bench seat coordinate. This has a detail-oriented feel, so not only are big things like the door panels looking good, but you'll also appreciate the little items, like the working dome light. There are well-placed upgrades, like a sports steering wheel, cupholders, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. The sliding rear window is great for getting a breeze going through the cab, and whenever that's not enough, there's also cold-blowing air conditioning.
The engine bay shows off more of this truck's well-done presentation. It has a tidy look right down to the hoses and wires. At the center is Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch V8. It inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it has added power as Hedman headers feed the dual exhaust. On a truck that looks this mean, we love you can open up the electric cutouts and let the motor growl. While this looks and sounds intimidating, there are easy driving features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front. When the pavement ends, this has a proper 4x4 two-speed transfer case, a tall ground clearance, and deep treads on the Cooper Discoverer tires make sure this Ford will get you to all your favorite destinations.
We have a receipt for over $9k invested in this truck within the last year that documents everything from updating the A/C system to installing a limited-slip rear end. It shows how this sleek-looking pickup is an all-around useful and fun classic. Call now!
