1979 Ford F250 4x4, "Ranger XLT"

1979 Ford F250 4x4, with the Top-of-The-Line "Ranger XLT" trim, and the Heavy Duty  8400 GVW  "Camper Special" package.  This was the last and the best of an era.  The Ranger XLT package gave you all the pretty stuff, and the Campers Special package gave you all the heavy duty stuff.  The heavy duty parts included, extra fluid coolers, the big "Desert Cooler" radiator, larger brakes, and a rear anti-sway bar.

This 4x4 is as straight as they come, and is 100% rustfree.  It has a mild lift on it to give it that classics "Highboy" look.  I just don't get many this nice.  The only real item that isn't stock is that the weak original 400 Modified was replaced with a strong rebuilt 460.  This truck is fully optioned, options include: factory A/C, firm shifting C6 automatic, big disc Brakes, Power Steering, tilt steering, Int. wipers, working cruise, factory tie down hooks, factory bed side toolbox, etc.  It also has mild 3:54 gears with a Dana 60 rear, a high pinion Dana 44 front, with the bullet proof NP205 transfer case.  

You will also notice the winch on the front, it works, and is a big 12,000# unit.

I also have some nice original documentation to go with this truck.  I have the factory Build Sheet, Window Sticker, and Owners Manual.  Rarely do I get this type of documentation with a vehicle.

I just can't say much more about this rugged 4x4.  I have gotten a ton of compliments on it.  You wont be disappointed.  The pictures speak for themselves.
