Very rare 1979 F150 4x4 with "Lariat"  Trim

This is a very rare and desirable 100% RUSTFREE 1979 F150 4x4, with the top-of-the-line "Lariat" trim package.  1979 was the pinnacle of Fords truck production, and 1979 is arguably the most desirable year.  This 4x4 is 100% rustfree from California.  It looks to have the original paint from the molding down.  The upper dark green has been repainted a long time ago.  The outer body is basically straight with dings, chips, and scrapes from use but not abuse.  The inside of the bed does show it's use.  This is a fine example.  It has most every option offered by Ford in 1979, including; 400 V8, C6 Automatic, A/C, PS, PDB, Tilt, Cruise, int. wipers, posi rear, dual tanks, and bed side tool box, etc.  Everything works, including the A/C, Cruise, and windshield  washers.  It also has a class III rear frame mounted hitch, and an electronic trailer brake controller.  The miles are claimed to be 113,784 actual.

The original engine runs nice with no smoke or noise.  The automatic choke even works.  The transmission shifts fine.  The 31X10.5X15 tires and wheels are new.  The truck drives excellent.  The brakes are excellent.  The suspension is tight.  The 4x4 system works perfect, also.  This 4x4 also has the quad front shock option.  The quad front shocks really make these trucks drive nice.  The original single exhaust is about shot.  It needs a nice set of duals.  The discolored spot in the bed behind the pass side rear tire is from the tailpipe scorching the paint.  It isn't rust.

This is a clean original 4x4, that hasn't been cut or lifted.  I would hop in and drive it anyplace.
