One owner survivor 1978 F150 4x4 "Ranger XLT"

This is a fully loaded and desirable 100% RUSTFREE 1978 F150 4x4.  It has most every option offered in 1978, Including the premium  "Ranger XLT" trim package, and the heavy duty "Trailering Special" towing package.  The "Ranger XLT" package gave you all the pretty stuff, and the Trailering special gave you the heavy duty parts.  The Trailering package included heavier springs, rear anti-sway bar, much larger brakes, extra and larger fluid coolers, etc.  Other factory options include: 400 V8, C6 Automatic, working A/C, PS, PDB, Tilt, Cruise, factory AM/FM, Tool Box, Locking Hood, Tie Down Hooks, etc.  I purchased this truck from the widow of the original purchaser.  I even have the original warranty card with the metal ID tag.  The name on that card matches the name on the title further proving the one owner status.  The body is 100% rustfree, and features most of the original paint.  Even the floor boards still have the original gray primer on them.  No undercoating on California trucks.  The truck is overall straight but, both doors have minor damage from the large towing mirrors.  None of this damage is major, but I want to be clear.  Finally, the auxiliary fuel tank has a metal cover under it.  That metal cover is  rusted.  It must have gotten water trapped in it and couldn't drain out.  This cover is replicable.  Every truck I have had that has this cover on it is rusted.  I don't consider that the body, so the body is still 100% rustfree.  The inside of the bed isn't all beat up either.  This truck was used but not abused.    I also have the original dealer order sheet.

The original engine runs strong with no smoke or noise.  The automatic choke even works.  The transmission shifts perfect.  The brakes are excellent.

This is a very clean original 4x4.  Even the interior is clean and bright due to not being smoked in.  If you are looking for a truck to restore, I recommend this one.  It has everything going for it.  It is clean, well optioned, nice color combination, nice documentation, and low miles.
