1978 F150 4x4 Rare Short Bed Step side

Unique and hard to find 1978 F150 short bed stepside 4x4.  I got it from the second owner in Nevada, but she spent most of her life in California.  This is a nice rustfree western survivor.  It has a rebuilt 351, with just under 20k on it.  It has a nice shifting C6 automatic.  It also has power steering, and power disc brakes.

These were the last of the real Ford 4x4s.  It has a Dana 44 straight front axle, the bullet proof 205 transfer case, and a limited slip "posi" 9" rear with conservative 3.50:1 gears.

The tires are like new with 90% tread 33x12.5x15's.  The exhaust sounds nice.  The suspension is tight.

We did weld in a new drivers side floor pan from LMC truck parts.  The original wasn't real bad, but had some soft spots in it.  Now the truck is 100% rustfree.   It also has a very straight bed, tailgate, and upper bed rails.

It has a nice sounding Alpine CD system in it also.

She runs and drives real nice.  I get quite a few requests for these stepside, but just can't find many of them.
