Description

This incredible '79 F-350 Ranger XLT 4x4 was delivered new at Slauson Ford in Independence Oregon and lived it in the pacific northwest until March of this year. This rare (1979 was the only year for 4x4 F-350 Dentside trucks) rig was loaded with options from the factory and received an incredibly cool stripe package/interior upfit by Cruisaire Inc. The Marti 'original 400 V8 struggled to move it along, so it has had a 460 big block professional swapped into it.

The truck is finished in its original Raven Black and mostly original paint (only paint work is on the cowl by the antenna). The truck has an awesome patina to it but does have some small scratches and bumps to it as you would expect for an unrestored truck body that's 43 years old. The photos do a great job of showing the exterior condition. The Cruisaire painted on stripes make this the ultimate 70s truck! The factory bedside toolbox is in perfect condition. All lights works. The bumpers, chrome trim and grille shell show very well.

The interior is in great shape! The black vinyl and Indian rug bench seat has been redone to like new condition and is the star of the show, its flanked by new black carpet and all original instrumentation. All gauges and warning lights work. The dash pad and door panels are in good shape. A cowboy hat holder, gun rack and CB radio we fit early on in life and are still there. A Retrosound Bluetooth radio and Kicker speakers are the only “modern” touch you'll find.

The Lincoln Sourced 460 CI V8 engine has been rebuilt 3000 miles ago and runs/drives great it is backed by a 4 speed transmission and NP205 transfer case. The engine has L&L headers, a brand new exhaust The vintage set of Turbine wheels have been refinished and fit with brand new Cooper Discoverer STT Pro Tires. Brakes have been serviced and adjusted.

This rare F-350 checks all the boxes of the perfect vintage truck!
