Description:

This heavy duty 1978 Ford F150 pickup was the go-to choice for rugged outdoor fun in the 1970s. With chiseled good looks and a surprisingly stout powertrain, it''s no wonder the original Bigfoot was based on a truck very similar to this one. Nicely finished in bright blue, it''s flat-out amazing to see a truck like this so beautifully preserved. Most of this trucks brothers were worked hard and laid to rest, but someone has obviously always cherished this one, as there''s no sign of a rough past. The gently flared wheel arches are straight and rust-free, the body moldings that surround the front and rear side marker lights are crisply rendered, and the rockers are solid. The paint is in good shape, not so nice that you''re afraid to use the truck as intended, but plenty nice enough to get more than a few admiring glances on the road. Neat details include the checkered-flag FORD block letters on the tailgate, as well as a bed liner that wraps around the top of the tailgate for protection. The front bumper and grille are brand new, and it''s great to see a proper factory rear bumper instead of some diamond-plate aftermarket monstrosity. I don''t think Ford was offering six-way power buckets with lumbar support in 1978, so the comfortable seats in this F150 are clearly from a late-model. But thanks to a near-match on the upholstery, it looks very OEM and most folks will never know the difference. It pays big dividends in terms of comfort, that''s for sure. There''s also a leather-wrapped steering wheel facing the original gauges, although they''re augmented by a pair of auxiliary gauges mounted down low in their own pods, which is kind of a cool twist on the usual theme. The stereo is a Pioneer AM/FM/CD unit that sounds about a million times better than the chattery old Ford piece, with speakers that have been hidden from view in the factory locations. You''ll also note that this truck carries factory A/C, which blows ice cold-a true rarity in a truck of this vintage. Even in 1978, you couldn''t get a 460 with this much horsepower under the hood of your F150. Thanks to a set of ported heads and a big cam, it moves the big 4x4 with real authority, as well as a gnarly big block exhaust note. Even in an engine bay as big as this, the massive A/C compressor dominates the landscape, but things like the chrome Ford Motorsport valve covers and Edelbrock air cleaner add some flash. Underneath, there''s a built C6 automatic feeding both axles, which are stuffed full of 4.11 gears. The suspension has been highly modified to clear those massive off-road tires, including Rancho shocks and some very trick suspension components. The lovely aluminum wheels are 16-inchers from Mickey Thompson wearing 315/75/16 Pro Comp tires. This is one of those trucks that you just don''t see anymore, with a lot of great upgrades.
