Description for Ford F-150 1978

1978 FORD F150 "SHORT BED" 4X4 RANGER PICKUP TRUCK This is the One you've been waiting for !!!Up for sale is a really nice. hard to come by1978 Ford f150 Ranger "Shortbed" 4x4. nbsp;with factory AC. Previous Owner owned it for 25 years. took very good care of it ! Only 20. 00 miles on a rebuilt 351 M V8. nbsp; Only 120. 00 on truck itself. Truck has been near dry climate Reno Nevada for the majority of its life. so you know its virtually "Rust Free" Very solid . very straight body. nbsp;just a very small bit of rust above the drivers rear tire. I kinda sprayed primer way more than needed. Lol! the undercarriage is awesome. nbsp;the silver and blue paint is old and faded. but still looks good in my opinion. this would be the perfect truck to make into a 10. or leave be and enjoy. Note: please pay attention to all the original chrome. I don't think anything is missing!Like I said earlier. it has a rebuilt 351 M engine in it. with 20. 00 mi. since rebuilt. It runs very good. very tight engine. I've noticed engine has no leaks!! It goes down the street like a "Bad Ass" Practically New 33 in. BF Goodrich AT tires. nice 15 in wheels. Truck starts very easy and effortlessly. always on its 1st try. just pump the pettle 3-4 times and "Vrooom". Idle stays high in worm up mode. then drops to normal idle when you pump pettle after warm. 4 speed manual tranny feel fine. no weird noises. clutch feels average. don't know when it was replaced. brakes feel average. nbsp; stops ok. also don't know when replaced. 4 wheel drive works fine. hubs turn with a easy click. has not been used 4 wheeling much. All new bushings. "see in pics" Truck has duel fuel tanks as well. Interior is very clean. no rips in carpet. nice seat cover. nbsp; Has "Factory AC". but doesn't blow cold. heater works fine. doors open and close good. very solid. side panels looks good. dash has some cracks. but theres a cover. windows roll up and down fine. all glass is good. locks work fine. there is a crack in the one taillight. but it can be easily replaced. I seen them all over Ebay for around $20. 00. or even at a auto store. Odometer/ speedometer work fine. All gauges work except gas gauge doesn't read right. Light work. So there you have it. another example of a nice. older. hard to find F150 shortbed that has been taken care of. but please keep in mind this is a 1978. it is not new. nbsp; I have tried to be as honest as possible with my ad. and I hope you'll enjoy it for years to come! The last picture is just another truck like it that sold on ebay a while ago. that would have been my vision if I was to keep it!If you have any more questions please email. or call (707) 953-8291.
