Description for Ford F-150 1978

* 1978 FORD F-150 Ranger Super Cab 4WD * * Very RARE, First Year In 4WD * * Near Impossible to Find In this Condition *
Before you and up for bid is my 1978 FORD F-150 RANGER Super Cab 4WD. The particulars of the truck are as follows:
* One family owned Colorado ranch truck purchased new by a father and then bequeathed to his son upon his passing.
* Garaged (barn) kept & pampered, non-smoker owned and always conscientiously maintained
* An original truck, not a restored truck
* RANGER trim level
* NO accident history,
* NO rot or rust, as the truck seldom was exposed to adverse winter conditions or corrosives (salt, mag chloride)
* The truck was utilized for general ranch purposes.
* ONLY 86,620 actual miles since new, I personally just drove the truck approximately 2K miles over four days from Colorado to Florida. It ran flawlessly.
* Very RARE, First year availability from FORD for the SUPER CAB in 4WD.
* Part time 4WD, manual locking hubs, low & hi range, NP205 case,fully operational
* 5.8 Liter, 351M engine, original to the truck, starts first turn of the key and holds a smooth steady idle
* C6 Automatic transmission, shifts smoothly throughout
* Transmission cooler
* Power steering, power brakes
* The truck has had one quality repaint in 1999, it was done in the correct FORD code 2U which is "Lipstick Red" & "Antique Creme". The paint still has a very nice luster, however, there is some small bubbling starting to appear, (see pics for reflection)
* Options include the 10 Hole Aluminum Wheels, these are in very good condition, rear sliding window, and the extremely RARE pop out Super Cab windows. I have the original 1978 sales brochure, these windows are featured in the brochure.
* All original glass throughout, NO cracks or chips, both windows roll up and down smoothly, the vent windows and the pop out windows open & close properly, the rear window opens, closes, and latches properly.
* Perfect dash, NO cracks or warps
* Original headliner, in excellent condition
* All weather stripping is soft & pliable
* Original upholstery in great shape, the only wear is to the lower side bolster from entering and exiting the truck.
* The rear jump seats are in excellent condition. The decision to select the Super Cab was partially based on the idea that twin grandsons would be going on many fishing outings...they preferred to ride in the bed and seldom sat in the jump seats.
* Excellent rubber flooring, no cracks
* Nice door panels, the felts are showing their age, I have back ordered a set which will be included.
* Nice grill, NO breaks
* Nice front bumper, good chrome
* Nice bright work, no missing pieces
* Aluminum diamond plate running boards, good condition, I'm sure these would buff to a nice shine
* Good condition tailgate and full 8' bed, minimal scuffs and scratches, no dents (see pics)
* 6400 GVWR
* Recent service including a thorough going over of the truck from bumper to bumper. All fresh fluids, belts, hoses, filters, lines. The battery is recent (6 mos.) The radiator has been replaced along with the water pump and a 180 degree thermostat. It runs very cool with strong compression. Original carburetor was also rebuilt.
* The tires have less than 8k miles on them. They are BFG ALL TERRAIN T/A KO's, size 33 x 12.5 R15. Mounted and balanced they cost $1000.00. They ride great and show no signs of uneven wear.
* The seat belts are all in great shape
* Nice door panels
* Original bottle jack in its under hood provision, tire tool and handle are in their place beneath the seat.
* All buttons, knobs, and stalks are present
* ALL convenience and safety features are fully operational, lights, flashers, parking lights, roof lights, reverse lights, wipers, horn, washer, courtesy lamps, lighter, dash lights, turn signals, ignition key buzzer, etc.
* All instrument displays operate properly, fuel, speedometer, odometer, temp, charging, compression, all monitoring lights as well
* Heat & defrost are fully operational
* The radio is a "retro" FORD AM/FM with an adapter for a CD player
* Excellent sun visors
* The glove compartment door opens & closes properly, the box itself is in great shape
* 2 sets of original keys, owners manual, miscellaneous operational pamphlets and the sales brochure previously mentioned
* Tow package, frame mounted receiver w/ functioning connector
* Clear Colorado title in my name
With the arrival of the 2017 FORD F-150 next month, this truck is now 40 model years old. It is a wonderful old truck that can be a daily driver or one certainly worthy of restoring.
The F-150 Super Cab looks, runs and drives great! It's a classic truck that turns heads everywhere it goes. It is clean throughout, inside, engine compartment and under carriage.
Crew cabs are next to impossible to find, Super Cabs are almost as difficult to find as the crews. As a first year truck, (4WD Super Cab) it will certainly have collectibility status.
Overall, the truck is in very good condition. There are some minor scratches and paint chips. The only damage is a small dent beneath the fuel door at the wheel arch. This is from "Milton" burro.
You are bidding to purchase the Super Cab, not to be the first to "look at it". Thank you.
Please have your funding in place prior to placing your bid. Thank you.
Please consult with your spouse, therapist, pet or MAGIC 8-BALL prior to placing your bid, as I am not running a clinic for the confused. Thank you.
Transportation is the sole responsibility of the buyer. I can recommend a reputable shipper for you if needed.
The truck and I are presently located in S.W. Florida. (Naples/Ft. Myers vicinity). If you choose to fly in and drive home, I will gladly pick you up from the S.W. Florida International Airport in Ft. Myers.
After recently driving the F-150 2000K miles, I am confident that the truck could be driven home safely to anywhere in America.
I have set a reasonable and fair reserve for the F-150 Super Cab. It is commensurate with the trucks condition, the ownership history, availability, and the low miles. Do not ask me what the reserve is, as I will not disclose it. Bid what you can afford and are willing to pay for the very nice 1978 Ford F-150 RANGER 4WD Super Cab that you see before you.
A $1000.00 initial payment is due within 24 hours of auction close VIA PayPal. NO exceptions.
The balance is then due & payable within 7 days thereafter under condition and arrangement made between myself and the buyer.
The balance is to be paid VIA bank to bank wire transfer. I will accept cash in person if you plan to fly in and drive home. I do not accept PayPal for the entire purchase amount, only the initial $1000.00 payment.
The truck and the title to the truck will not be released until payment in full has been received. Upon receipt of payment in full, I will overnight VIA FEDEX the title and bill of sale to the new owner. If you are to fly in and drive home, I will offer the option of hand delivering these to you upon your arrival.
If you are "new" to eBay, have 0% feedback, or excessive negative feedback, you will need to call me prior to placing your bid and express your intentions. If you do not call me prior, your bid will be cancelled, and you will be blocked from further bidding. This is done to preserve the integrity of the auction for the legitimate buyers.
I am not a dealer, I am a collector hobbyist and a legitimate seller simple seeking a legitimate buyer.
I require that the winning bidder call me within 24 hours of auction close to discuss arrangements regarding the pick up of the truck and balance payment.
eBay only provides for 24 pictures. I have selected pictures that best present a concise overview of the truck. If you would like any area specific pictures, simply ask for them.
If you would like to discuss a "buy it now", call me and present your offer. DO NOT call and ask me, "what's the lowest that you'll take?"
I answer my phone quicker than I respond to e-mail, call me directly with any questions. If you reach voice mail, leave me a brief message and a contact number, and I will return your call promptly.
Buyers from the U.S., Canada, the UK, Europe, Russia, Australia and New Zealand are welcome and encouraged to bid with confidence.
Since 2007, I have sold more than 30 of my personal vehicles through eBay. I strive to honestly and accurately represent the true condition of the vehicle. Most all have had their expectations exceeded.
Being that the F-150 is 39 years old, by bidding you acknowledge your understanding that the truck is being sold in "as is" condition with no expressed, written or otherwise implied warranties. While the truck is in very nice shape, please have realistic expectations for a 39 year old truck. Thank you.
For anyone interested, yes, this truck is "EMP" proof, and may be just what you need to access your retreat or bug out location.
Thanks for looking and good luck when you bid on this classic F-150 4WD Super Cab. Don't miss out...it's the one you've been looking for.
