This 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger is a bright red big boy 4×4 with plenty of utility, a comfy interior, and plenty of power from the big V8 under the hood

This F-150 announces its presence with its bold square shouldered design and a raised 4×4 suspension. It wears a shade of factory-correct Maroon Metallic has a glossy and attractive look. So it will get you respect at stoplights, but they made sure it wasn’t so perfect that you’d shy away from using this 4×4. That’s exactly how to view this pickup: beauty mixed with brawn. These Rangers have the attractive full-length trim that shows off the straightness of the body. Plus, the new lower molding trim and rear step bumper are also nice reminders of a stylish attitude within the substance. The bed looks great with a diamond plate floor, and there’s even a newly sprayed liner paint. And the addition of the 15-inch Vision wheels with meaty tires really ties brightwork and utility packages together.

Open the door to an interior with the right updates and upgrades. The black and red bench seat with white piping has a cool classic truck look, and the headliner is done to match. Fresh carpeting, clean door panels, and a dash cap all add to this well-done and inviting atmosphere. There are some nice updates for function, like the column mounted tach. This was also made to be a comfortable truck. It looks to have been a factory A/C machine (will need servicing and components to restore) and the upgraded AM/FM stereo with USB and Bluetooth really upgrades the driving music.

Ford’s 400 cubic-inch V8 is already the kind of size you want to get the job done, and that’s just the beginning for this one. It has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and long tube headers that feeds the dual exhaust with Flowmasters. It fires up with a throaty rumble that tells you it’s a nice power package. The extra muscle goes well with the two-speed 4×4 transfer case, extra ground clearance, and deep tread on the Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires to really deliver a go-anywhere attitude. And the full package is good for all-around driving with the C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.

Powerful, attractive, vintage, and comfortable – it’s amazing you can get all of this in a 4×4 package for such an attractive price.
