1979 Ford F-100 Description

This is the classic dream truck. If you always wanted to find a near pristine example of a vintage pickup, here it is. This 1979 Ford F-100 Custom Cab has an amazingly original presentation, and it does it with great features like V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and air conditioning.
You just don't see trucks like this anymore. 1979 was the last, and arguably the best, year for this classic style of the F-100 pickup. The medium light blue is factory correct, and we suspect it's original. It retains a nice gloss and shine, which gives a warm feeling of an F-Series truck of an even older vintage. Plus, all the highly stylized chrome trim combines with the paintwork to make this one an instant classic. But despite it having a '50s style color and chrome, the younger age means this truck still has a lot of practical daily use left in it. In fact, look inside the bed. It's obvious whoever had this pickup before cared about it enough to be careful when loading. Still want more reassurance of the superior level of care? Just a take a look a how clean and straight every piece is, from the body panels, to the fender wells. It still even has the factory wheel covers!
Trucks can often feel a bit drab inside, but not this one. The exterior attitude is carried over with a sky blue brightening up the interior. It starts with the bench that has plenty of stylized stitching, and more importantly, comfortable cloth for everywhere you sit. The carpets, door panels, and headliner also feel much more luxurious than just a workman's vehicle. There's even a bit of wood paneling on the dash and steering wheel just to continue this appearance of pickup indulgence. Just like the exterior, this one has a high degree of originality, and that continues on everything from the AM radio to the air conditioning that's blowing cold.
Take a look under the hood and you'll know this is a survivor-quality blue oval. The 302 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be original and does not appear to have been fussed with over the years. It has averaged under 2,100 miles annually, and so everything from the bright pie dish air topper to the factory decals gives this a presentation that's barely worn-in. Even the jack is still mounted in its original strap! So while you might not have thought about buying this to show off, be prepared to grab a lot of attention. Still, deep down this is a workhorse. The V8 has plenty of grunt to make light work of any task you throw at it. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission means you have the best control over the full powerband. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and Ford's twin I-beam front suspension, and this is also a fantastic cruiser.
This sale comes complete with all the right documentation for a survivor, including the original window sticker, warranty card, and buildsheet. It started life as a premium pickup, and thanks to a careful life, that prestige has only grown over the years. So don't miss your opportunity at a once-in-a-lifetime pickup. Call today!!!
