Up for sale is an amazing and rare1979 Ford F-150 Ranger Limited Edition Indianapolis 500 Speedway Official Pace Truck. This edition was built to pace the 63rd Annual Indianapolis 500 automobile race in 1979, and was limited to just over 4,200 units total. They all carried the signature silver and black paint with orange and red accents, orange tailgate panel, Sport Bar, blacked out grill, bumpers, and mirrors, special aluminum wheels, special steering wheel, and special black/silver/red interior. The truck is exceptionally well-maintained original mechanical condition, as is in solid usable as-is condition, or restore and have something extremely special. Priced to sell.

The truck has good glass throughout, a beautiful grill, nice headlamp bezels, rare front push bar with original driving lights and covers, etc. The wheels are the rare original polished aluminum units with good tires, AND it has the matching spare. The bed-mounted Sport Bar is original. The bed has some rust near the bulkhead, damage on the d/s rear tail lamp area, damage down low below the fuel filler. If you replaced the bed you'd save a lot of heartache, although it is certainly savable. The tailgate still has the rare orange trim panel. I am being hard on the truck; it's a cool daily-driver as-is that requires nothing to enjoy.

The Limited Edition interior is in very good condition with no rips or tears in the seat upholstery, very nice original door panels, dash bezels, lightly cracked dash pad, nice headliner, original and rare Indy steering wheel, and new carpet.

The odometer shows just over 77k miles and is assumed to have rolled over, although I cannot verify that.

Clear title in hand, matches VIN exactly for inspection, export, etc.

You may call me directly at 360-936-9257 with any questions you may have.
