1979 Ford F-100 Additional Info:

Every vintage pickup was once a workhorse and each has a story to tell. So the one you really want not only still looks great, but in the case of this 1979 Ford F-100, also has unique tale to share with your friends.The red paint seems like the perfect respray of the original Candyapple that now takes advantage of more modern paint practices, and gives a bolder touch to this classic. These Fords are quite popular because they combine the square-jawed tough appeal with some nice brightwork. That's why the mirror-like appearance of the trim around the wheel wells and the chrome bumpers really help complement the glossy paint, especially out in the sunshine. Plus, the addition of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels really lets you know this is a cool custom pickup. One look at the super-straight body, and it's very obvious this wasn't some contractor's beater... but there's an even deeper story of owner loyalty. Take a look at the dealer info on the owner's manual. This Ford was purchased new in Gainesboro, Tennessee. So nearly 40 years later, this pickup is selling less than two hours from its home.If you liked the cool red exterior, then you'll love the interior even more. It looks like there has been an investment in the door panels, seats, and carpeting to make sure everything looks nice and period-correct. But as much as this looks like retro-cool red machine, you get great modern features like an AM/FM/CD stereo and air conditioning.A proper pickup needs the real power, and this engine bay has the correct G-code 302 cubic-inch V8. It looks fantastic in the engine bay, where you can once again see some real investment into a great and tidy appearance. So you've got a truck with the power to make the Home Depot runs on Saturday, and the presentation to go to the show on Sunday. With a three-speed automatic transmission, twin I-beam front suspension, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front so this classic pickup can maintain its manners the road. The full package is finished off with a more modern set of Kumho low profile tires for great all-around grip.Complete with owner's manual, window sticker, warranty card, and other docs that remind you it's a homegrown pickup, this vintage F-100 is turnkey ready for all-day work or play. It even has the perfect tale to give it a real personality. How many classics can you say that about? Call today!!!
