Technical data for 1979 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT
Classic looks meet massive big block power on this 1979 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT to create an attractive vintage pickup at one of the most affordable prices around.
The Ranger XLT package was created to showcase a very stylish pickup. That's why you're looking at an impressive full trim package, wide chrome bumpers, and square headlights (remember only the last couple of year in this generation had those.) The later-model 15-inch wheels add plenty of great shine. Plus, the factory-correct code-A Raven Black retains good gloss to grab attention. But what really makes this your favorite is how this classic is still ready to get to work. You have tough liner paint in the bed, and there's a trailer hitch with a modern electric hookup. This extra versatility is a good match for this truck's extra power (more on that in a moment.)
Inside is more of the midnight treatment. The bench seat looks good, there are newer door panels, and there's even the addition of a cup holder console. This is quite period-correct, so you get great features like the XLT's wood applique trim, and even the AM radio with 8-track is still cranking out tunes! But your favorite factory feature comes when you open the side vent windows, slide the rear glass, and let the breeze flow though the cab like only an old-school truck can. When you do, we bet you'll love hearing the growl from this enhanced pickup.
This was originally born with a 302 V8. That's a fine motor, but we bet you'll really love the 460ci that's under the hood now. This was the largest motor Ford ever allowed in this generation F-series. This biggest of the big blocks inhales deeply though a large Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. While this might growl like a wild beast, it's quite easy to tame. That's thanks to good driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
This big block F-100 is turn-key ready for all-day work or play. How many classics can you say that about today for under $20K? Call now!
