1978 Ford F-150 lariat-- Additional Info:

  • The truck has had excellent upkeep and maintenance. --- principally garaged, and for at least the last 10 years, used only occasionally.
  • The interior is in very nice condition. The dash is solid with no splits. The seats have been covered most of the life of the truck and are in super shape. There is one split of about 1/8 of an inch on the drivers side of the seat in the cream colored vinyl trim--minor and easily repaired.. There is a close up photo of this split in the ebay photos above. The dash gauges are clear and functioning.

  • The entire inside is still richly colored and in super shape.There is fading on the carpet, but the carpet is still in good condition.There is a small loss of wood grain trim on the steering wheel from wear. You can see it on the outside edge of the left speed control button in the above photo of the steering wheel.

  • All the glass is good.

  • All the lighting works from the dash and interior to the backup lights.

  • The tires are matching Lt235/75r15 steel belted radials with plenty of tread. The spare is full size and held on a mount in the bed of the truck. There is a hydraulic jack (included) waiting inside the mounted, lockable, blue wooden storage box-- also in the bed of the truck. (blue box at no extra charge)

  • The Vintage Top Cap Topper has no cracks or breaks.The topper has a roof light fixture that is not hooked up. The original locking handle on the topper hatch, s not present and has been replaced by a hasp for a padlock. When the truck was new the bed was fitted with a snap-on bed cover (long since gone) -- It would look WAY cool with another one. The snaps on the upper outside of the bed walls are all present. Thes naps that were across the tailgate are gone.

  • The truck body, ears ago,was repainted in it's original Ford Cream and Medium Copper. The inside bed and tailgate were NOT painted and therefore justly have earned some fresh paint.

  • The matching swing out mirrors are "extend a mirrors" --in great condition and easily adjusted.

  • The rust on the truck appears light and shallow. The rust represented in the photos is an example and is nearly all of it. I will be looking for any I have missed as we go and will post additional photos.
