1979 Ford F350 1 Ton 4x4 Ranger XLT

This is One of the Rarest, Most Desirable 4x4 Pickup Trucks Ford Has Ever Produced!! In 1979, Ford’s Truck Plants Total Production Was Only 10,811 Units!! It’s the Only Year Ford Built a F350 1 Ton 4x4 Utilizing the 1973-1979 Classic Truck Body Style. These Snow Fighter 1 Ton 4x4s Were Built With the Sole Intentionto BeBought and Utilized For Extreme Tasks as SolidWorkhorse Trucks, and Pickups/ Snow Plows Getting Through the Harsh Winters of the Midwest and Northeast Winters. Not Many Survived the Dreadful, Salted Roads For Which They Were Built For. Unfortunately, Many of These Great Trucks Rusted Out Years Ago.

This Super Solid F350 4x4 Was Built in the San Jose, California Assembly Plant (DSO Code 72). It’s VIN of F36XXXXXXXX Confirms It Was Built and Is a Verified F350 1 Ton 4x4, Not a Put Together, Homemade 1 Ton 4x4 That Started Life as a F100, F250 or 2 Wheel Drive Rig. It Still Retains It’s Most Desirable Features; Dana 60 High Pinion Front Solid Disc Brake Axle and Dana 60 Rear Axle. According to the Original Aluminum Metal Door Tag, Both Axles are Geared with the Most Desirable 4.10 Limited Slip (Code B4A) Factory Ford Option For Mud, Rain, Slick and Snow Conditions.

This Rare F350 4x4 Also Retains Its Desirable Original 400 Engine With an Upgraded 4 Barrel Intake Manifold and Carburetor. The Strong Factory Option C6 Automatic Transmission Mated to It’s New Process 205 Transfer Case Works Well, and is Dependable Driving on the Pavement or Going Off Road. The Factory Air Conditioning is Present But NeedsServicing. It'sNice to Have and Makes the Day/Camping Trips More Comfortable in the Warm Summer Months.

The Original Factory 2 Tone Exterior Color Is Candy Apple RedWith White Accent. The Red Interior is In Good Condition For Being 39 Years Old. The Bench SeatShould Be Recovered.The Sliding Rear Window Circulates the Air in the Interior.

The Body and Bed are California/ Nevada Rock Solid (Please See the Pictures). The Hood, Doors and TailgateFitWell (Yes, the HoodWas Open in the Pics).As the Pictures Show, the Door Jams, Cab Corners, and Overall Sheet Metal are Clean and Not Rusted/Rotted Out!! No Welding and Replacing Rusted Out Sheet Metal Panels With This Rock Solid F350!! The Overall Truck's BodyDoes Show It’s 39 Year Old Character with Some Dings, Scratches, and Paint Wearing Thin.The Paint Is Showing Its Age, But Can Be Left As Is, or Could Benefit From New Paint.

I Searched For This 4x4 Pickupa Long Time, But Have to Part Due to Other Priorities That Life Has Dictated. This Ford Factory Tough 4x4 is Stored at My Parents Home in Truckee, California 96161 and Can Be Picked Up or Shipped From There at the Buyer’s Expense.

With Some Work, This American Classic Could Be Taken to the Next Level. I Would Recommendthe Engine Be Given a Full Tune Up, Service the Air Conditioning System, and Recoverthe Bench Seat.

This 1979 Ford F350 4x4 Would Make a Great Father/Son Classic Project, Off Road/ Weekend Camper, or a Wonderful Christmas Gift! Classic Ford Trucks are Climbing in Value, and Rare 1979 F350 4x4s are Skyrocketing in Price!! This is Not Only an American,Rare Classic 1 Ton 4x4, But an Investment That Will Appreciate!!
