Car description

*****First of all thank you for the interest in my truck. Please ignore the only bad feedback that I obtained about 6 months ago from an unreasonable buyer who tried to blame me for how poorly treated his package was handled by his postal office. I have been a member since 2007 and this was my only bad remark.

Up for sale is my 1978 Ford F150 Ranger Long wheel base with 68k original miles. I bought it from an older Marine gentleman in the San Antonio area a couple of years ago and I thought of using it as a shop truck. I use it once in awhile but the truck has too much documentation compared to other ones and I simply think its best that it goes to a Ford truck enthusiast. The truck comes with the original Ford build specification sheet that states all of its options from factory, its original color catalog, original glove box manual,original dealership glow in the dark key tag, aFord plaque given to all owners, and a CD manual given to me by the owner.

Since I purchased the truck I have done only a couple of things to it. The hood and roof had 2 areas where the original paint had started to show the original pink primer/sealer. I had the truck re sprayed to preserve the truck before the paint became too thin. The truck has new gaskets in the cylinder head coverssince they dried up and thus had small leak (previous owner said it was parked). The engine bay has never been cleaned. The carburetor's diaphragm was changed (easy fix). The starter is also new and was replaced when it began to drag.

The truck has no rust even though it came from the Ohio area because it was sprayedwith zbart to protect it. Ihad never heard of this undercoating material, but the previous owner schooled me on the matter. These fords tend to have rustnot only on the rocker panels but on the roof corners and this truck is completely rust free. When I obtained the truck I simply wiped the interior with a wet cloth and have kept it clean with armor all. The interior is in great condition. The bench seat is nice and firm. The headliner is perfect. All gauges work. The floor has rubber mat and for its age its in nice shape. Previous owner stated he also changed front grill and bumper. If I had plans to keep it I would change them again to a higher gloss chrome grill and change the bumper as it does have a slight bend on it. The truck in my opinion would also look better with a chrome rear bumper, but it came paintable from factory.

The truck came with many factory options like the running boards and the sport steering wheel. All windows roll down without a problem. Radio works but one speaker might need replacing. Tires are still good but the truck sat for many years so I don't know if they are long distance ready. I drive the truck around the city and in the highway and they seem fine for around the town. Steering is straight and the truck rooms smooth. It doesn't have AC (the only downside in the humid hell of Houston). The trucks engine doesn't knock at all and no smoke at all of any color. The transmission shifts accordingly. The bed had a mat to protect it and has no holes from rust. The truck might need a new booster as the brake pedal makes noise from time to time but im not sure if its just from sitting when I don't drive it.

Overallthe truck is a nice survivor. What distinguishes this from other 78 or 79 Fords? Documentation! I doubt there are many trucks out there with so much of its paper work still on hand. This would make for a nice farm truck or for a true fan to restore it into a trailer queen. For now its a nice driver with the history to back up that its been taken cared of. I am happy to answer any questions.

PLEASE ONLY SERIOUS BIDDERS!! I have been on ebay for a long time to know the ropes. Don't try any funny business or scam. Im being honest so I expect nothing but that in return. The truck wont leave my possession until everything is cleared. Cash is king when paying for the truck. The truck is sold in AS IS condition and without any type of warranty. I would feel comfortable driving this truck anywhere but it is your risk as is anything with an older car. We could arrange a delivery if you live near the area once the truck is inspected and paid for in full. Buyer please message me right away with payment and transportation agreement. Full payment due in less than a week. Truck is for sell locally also.
