This generation of Ford pickups were popular when they were introduced for the same reasons they are still popular today. They are good looking, reliable, tough, and capable. But as they aren\'t building them anymore, the trick is finding one, like this one, that has been nicely reconditioned. Check it out.
This is a big red pickup with broad shoulders and a serious stance that lets you know it\'s ready to rumble. But before a drop of that beautiful Red paint was sprayed on, the surface of the sheet metal was smoothed out nicely and the panels adjusted so that the gaps were consistent. Up front a black eggcrate grill flanked by single headlights set in black is trimmed in polished aluminum with Ford lettered across the front of the hood and a sharp looking chrome bumper underlining it. A gray and silver pinstripe runs down the side and a custom side step comes in handy while climbing up and in. Out back, the tailgate has Ford letters in black on the tailgate and a black bumper with a trailer receiver has dual oval exhaust tips peeking out from underneath it. The bed itself is ready for work or play with spray in bedliner.
Open the door and you will find a sharp looking Red interior with a few nice updates. The door panel itself is stock with a nice armrest for comfortable long-haul cruising. The bench seat has been reupholstered in comfortable red cloth and an aftermarket leather wrapped steering wheel is mounted on a three spoke hub with a Ford center button and it feels good in your hands. The shifter for the automatic transmission is mounted on the column and the one for the transfer case is mounted on the floor in the center. The dash panel is stock with easily visible gauges that include the speedo in the center with fuel, oil pressure, water temp and voltage off to the sides. There is a Sony AM/FM/CD and iPod compatible stereo in the dash with speakers mounted behind the seat for your listening pleasure. A little custom pinstriping appears on the dash next to the wood grain glove box and rubber floor mats protect the carpeting.
Pop the hood and you will find a freshly rebuilt 351M motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. The motor was bored .030 over and had a mild cam installed in the process of the rebuild. A polished air topper sits on top of a Holley 4-barrel carb which feeds an Edelbrock intake manifold. MSD handles the ignition duties and stock exhaust manifolds get the spent gasses heading back to dual Flowmaster mufflers giving this truck a nice healthy sound. Power flows back through a 3-speed automatic transmission and the transfer case to the rear axle mounted on leaf springs while up front, coil springs get the job done. The steering has all been refreshed with new components as well as new bushings and shocks. Power front disc brakes assure good stopping ability and the rubber meets the road through 305/70R16 Patagonia MT tires mounted on deep dish aluminum wheels that have only been driven from the tire store to our showroom.
Good looking, reliable, tough, capable, and nicely reconditioned. It\'s just waiting for you to come down and decide that it is exactly the truck you have been looking for. So, come on down and check it out!
