1979 Ford F-150 4X4

This is a very nice, hard to find "One-Owner" since new 1979 F-150 Short-Bed 4X4. He had a full body restoration completed in early 2003, He then retired the truck for summertime use and enjoyment. At the time of restoration the complete drive-train was also gone through including C-Bushings, U-Joints, Ball-Joints, Brakes, Poly Body Bushings and much more. The Venerable 300-6 starts with a flick of the key with no unusual noise, smoke or leaks and the T-18 4 speed transmission shifts nice and smooth thanks to the recently replaced clutch assembly. For the times 4WD is necessary, the NP-205 transfer case shifts easily as well and with factory 3:50 gear's and an upgraded Locking rear differential this F-150 will still easily pull stumps or cruise down the highway quite effortlessly at 70mph. The truck was also ordered with power steering and brakes, heavy duty front suspension with dual shocks, sway bar and more. The interior is also very nice with nice seat upholstery, dash, gauges, floor mat, weatherstrips and trim. Most recently the Vintage Western Plow was completely restored and installed on this truck last fall and has not been used since.  Aside from a color change during restoration it's pretty much as ordered new.  Having been restored nearly 15 years ago the truck does have some minor nic's and chips from normal use, that said, it's still a very clean nice looking truck and everything is in working order as it should be including the reverse lights and parking brake. The underside is as rock solid as the rest of the truck and still has the original spare tire under the bed. The Plow attachment was also made to be easily removed for summer cruising or the mount can be left on for that "Nostalgic Look" or to plow your own drive. Not that I'd want to beat this truck up plowing but in all honesty, you can't buy a decent Plow Truck for this price! Either way, this F-150 runs, drives and looks very sharp!
