1979F100 Rare Short Bed Stepside

Very rare and desirable, one-of-a-kind California survivor.  It is a 1979 F100 short bed step side.  This truck is 99.9% rustfree from California, and still features it's original "Tuxedo Black" paint, and factory Ford painted on white block style pin stripes.  In over 35 years dealing in western rustfree vehicles I have never had or seen another.  This was the last and best year of the 73 - 79 body style.  This is a nice simple truck that features a strong and smooth 302, and a nice shifting automatic, with power steering, and disc brakes.  It also has a 3.50 limited slip rear axle.

The guy I got it from bought it in 1982 from the original owner.  It comes with a folder full of maintenance and repair receipts

This step side is as an original survivor as you will find.  It has just over 100k original miles.  It dives excellent.  The brakes, suspension and exhaust are all sound.  We installed new white letter radial tires on the factory spoked rally wheels.  The blacked out bumpers, and mirrors are also factory with this paint package.

The interior is also very original.  We installed new OE style carpet.  It has a nice sounding Kenwood CD stereo.

All step sides came with wood floors.  They were made with untreated pine, so needles to say they didn't last 45 years.  We custom fit a bed liner in over the original wood and metal supports.

This truck has a beautiful original patina.  It would be a coin toss as to leave it all original, or paint it back to it's original glory.  That decision is for the next owner.

These trucks just aren't around much in clean original condition anymore.  My team of buyers or myself can hardly find clean original pre 80 Fords anymore.  That is why you are seeing more and more newer stuff on the website.  If your looking for something like this don't hesitate they sell fast and sure aren't getting any easier to find.  Thanks for looking!
