1979 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4 Frame Off Restored 460 Four Speed PS Disc Brakes

Here we have a 1979 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4 for sale. This truck has undergone a complete frame off restoration. The attention to detail is clear from top to bottom. Not only does this truck have a gorgeous appearance it also has an excellent drive train and can be cruised anywhere! The body on it is all rock solid and we can see that the fit of all the panels is stunning. Down the sides are straight and all the body lines flow beautifully from front to rear. All the gaps are even and symmetrical and you'll notice all the glass is in excellent condition along with the weather stripping and seals. It sports a ton of trim and chrome with all of it having a brilliant shine. All the side trim looks amazing along with both bumpers and the grill. It's all a beautiful accent to the two-tone color scheme. The Black and Silver paint has been polished to a mirror finish and does an excellent job of showing off the body. Inside the bed is all rock solid and is also done in the Black paint. To finish off the exterior it's sitting on the 15” Mickey Thompson Wheels with 33x12.50 Tires.
Next, we will look at the interior of the Truck. On the inside it's done in the Black color scheme that flows perfectly with the exterior. It features the cloth bench seat that is in excellent condition. We can also see that the door panels are done in black and are also in great condition. New carpet has been installed and we can also see the custom headliner with overhead console and speakers. Looking at the dash you'll notice the new steering wheel that's done in white to match the tach and under dash gauges. The dash is in phenomenal condition and has the woodgrain accents to go along with the gray accents around the gauges. This is four speed truck that has the custom shifter and it also has the floor shift for the Four Wheel Drive.
Finally, we will look at the driveline of the Ford. Under the hood everything has a gorgeous detail with the firewall and inner fenders being solid. The power comes from the 460 Engine that's detailed in the Red with red plug wires and booster. Its set up with the Aluminum Intake and Holley Carb along with having polished chrome valve covers and the Ball Milled Air Cleaner and Plug Wire Looms. This truck comes with Power Steering with skyliner shock assist along with Power Brakes and Disc on all four corners. The 460 runs through the Four Speed Trans and the NP 205 transfer case feeds the 9” Rear and Danna 44 up front. When you look under this truck, you're sure to notice the eye to detail done when this truck was frame off restored. To start the frame was detailed in red along with the transmission, transfer case, gas tank, and four-wheel disc brakes. All new fuel and brake lines were installed. But it gets impressive when you see all the chrome work from the driveshafts, to the sway bars and inspection covers. This was very thoroughly built truck from bottom to top. Up front new ball joints and bushings were installed, and we can see that it has the Dual Shocks along with new springs. Out back it has the leaf springs with new shocks as well. On the highway this truck runs out phenomenal and is a blast to cruise.
