1983 Ford F-150 4x4 Additional Info:

With a great looking exterior shade draped over its solid form, this 1983 Ford F-150 4x4 cuts quite an appearance, whether its navigating rugged terrain, pulling up to a work site or just cruising around town. This seventh generation representative of Ford's heralded line of workhorses is running with gusto via the upgraded powerplant it now carries and its substantial wheel clearance makes it adept at handling conditions off the asphalt. At the same time it's also plenty well equipped... to provide a comfortable driving experience in more commonly encountered conditions. You don't often see trucks of this era wearing the light blue paint that this '83 features over its stock exterior. The shade looks great in this setting, complimenting the more sizable form that came from a thorough redesign Ford took the model through only a few years earlier before this F-150 rolled out to increase its payload handling ability. The paint was applied not long ago and presents well, and the sheet metal just below appears to be solid. Should you decide to maximize this F-150's already strong presence with some freshening up, none of it would be overly involved - the foundation here seems to be in very good order, so a trip to the re-plating shop and some replaced rubber here and there will make a big difference. The glass surrounding the cabin is still nice and clear and there's a newly added black step bumper in back. Considering this vintage truck has yet to see the inside of an upholstery shop over the course of its extensive lifetime, its interior has come through the years in pretty solid fashion while remaining in stock configuration, though the signs of both the passing years and dutiful service are scattered throughout the cabin. The gray cloth bench seat has yet to develop any splitting and still offers all the comfort needed for even longer journeys, and the overall level of functionality inside the doors is solid. The steering wheel wears a fresh leather wrap and the instrument panel beyond it hosts a cluster's worth of clear, functional gauges. The dash pad above it hasn't fared quite as well and could stand with a replacement - not an overly involved task. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo now resides at the center of the dash and both the manual shifter and the lever engaging this F-150's 4-wheel drive surefootedness sit within easy reach on the transmission tunnel. In back, the bed area is protected by a liner over its floor and the surrounding light blue walls are looking very clean. <BR. Beneath the hood, the emphasis is on plenty of dependable power to propel this pickup through whatever conditions it may find itself in. The 351 cubic inch Windsor in its engine bay is a capable powerplant and it's in strong form here, starting promptly and running smoothly as it pairs with a 4 speed manual transmission that, along with this classic Ford's featured four wheel drive, is operating in top form. Power steering makes for easy navigation both on and off the asphalt, while power brakes - with discs up front - bring this rugged ride to low effort, fade resistant stops as it performs its duties on a set of 15" steel wheels wrapped with Trailbuster Radial II tires that still show plenty of tread. Below, the undercarriage stands ready for plenty of future miles. Solid and straight throughout and running strong, this 1983 Ford F-150 4x4 offers a great mix of off-road ability and vintage appeal that can be yours at an attainable price. Call today!
