1979Ford F350 4x4 "SuperCab" Ranger LariatTrim
1979 Ford F350 1ton 4x4
SuperCab. This Super cab is fully loaded and features the "Ranger
Lariat" trim and the heavy duty "Trailering Special" towing package. SuperCab's are hard enough to find, but with the F350 1 ton
suspension it is virtually impossible to find. Then add in the
"Lariat" and "Trailering Special" packages and it is ultra rare. 1979
was the first and only year to get a true F350 4x4 in the pre 80 body style. This truck is
including: Ranger Lariat trim, Trailering Special towing package,
strong smooth 460, with a mild cam, Edelbrock intake and carb, firm shifting C6 A/T, working A/C, power steering, power disc brakes, dual fuel tanks,
tilt wheel, cruise control, factory bed side tool box, factory tie down
hooks on the the bed, factory cab lights, etc.
The Lariat package gave you all the fancy trim and interior, where as the Trailering Special package gave you equipment for towing: rear anti sway bare, heavy duty front disc brakes, extra coolers, and the big desert cooler radiator.
This truck has the correct high pinion Dana 60 in the front axle, with a limited slip Dana 60 in the rear to match. It also has the bullet proof 205 gear driven transfer case. It has a mild lift to give it the "Highboy" stance. It has new Rancho shocks all the way around and new 255/85/16 tires on the wider factory ford steel wheels. It also has new exhaust. The brakes stop nice. The suspension is tight. It drives fabulous.
The interior is nice. The door panels are new, the carpet has been replaced, and the front seat recovered. It also has the desirable rear bench seat. It also has a nice sounding Custom Autosound brand factory fit and look radio
This truck received a cosmetic and mechanical restoration a few years ago, but by no means is a mint show truck. It is a nice turn key rare driver. The paint looks nice from 20 feet, but up close has flaws. It is a solid western truck, that needs nothing to be used and enjoyed just is it sits. Everyone who sees it loves it.
