Up for sale is a gorgeous 1979 Ford F150 Ranger short bed 4x4 pickup. zero rust and a new professional restoration inside and out.  Original factory color is code A Raven Black with black and silver deluxe Comfort Weave interior.  Rebuilt factory 400M and auto trans. small suspension lift. beautiful truck that turns heads instantly.  I purchased three vehicles from a local gentleman; this truck belonged to his father. who purchased it new.  It took some time for me to talk him out of it. but I prevailed. and have recently finished the restoration and rebuild. the truck is outstanding.  Details as follows:

We started with a straight and rust-free 1979 factory 4x4 short wheel base truck wearing factory-original Raven Black paint. The entire interior. all glass. and all exterior trim was removed prior to commencement of body preparation.   The original paint was removed as necessary. followed by metal work and body work to restore the already-straight panels to near factory-new condition. inside and out. Any extra holes from tool box. mirrors. etc. were professionally welded prior to bodywork.   Little to no body filler was required; this was and is a high-end professional restoration.  All factory-painted surfaces were professionally repainted in high-end two stage factory Raven Black finish. The finish is arguably as good or better than when the truck was new.
The exterior aluminum Ranger side trim and grill surround was cleaned. polished. and clear coated. then installed with factory original and new fasteners as necessary.  The fancy original 1979 Ranger-only chrome-edged grill and headlamp surrounds were cleaned and restored prior to installation. as were all the emblems. The sport side mirrors are new. the front Deluxe chrome front and rear step bumpers cleaned and installed. New side marker lenses. parking lenses. and tail lamp lenses round out the fresh new look.  Restored rear tailgate panel trim as well.  New aluminum wheel lip moldings installed to finish the trim.  
Factory steel wheels were stripped and restored in correct Wimbledon White finish. and were then mounted with excellent 33 x 10. 5 x 15 BF Goodrich Radial All Terrain tires; a perfect look and fit for the truck.  
The tinted front windshield is new and has a new gasket (the original wide Ranger window trim is included with the truck).  The rear slider is original and has a new gasket as well.  The doors feature new door weatherstrip. interior window channel felts. door edge felts. and exterior rubber door wipers.  The door regulators were serviced and in proper operating condition.  The exterior original door handles were cleaned. polished. and re-installed along with the lock cylinders and new gaskets.
The inside of the bed was also fully prepared. sealed. and treated to a high-end spray in bed liner in black. The wheel wells. suspension. exhaust. and undercarriage of the truck. while not restored. ave been treated to a cleaning and light detail so as not to distract from the beauty of the truck.  
As you can see. the exterior is just gorgeous and very close. if not equal to factory new condition.


The interior was complete removed prior to installation. and all the factory interior painted surfaces were restored with new Raven Black paint.  New carpet was installed. the foot pedals painted and new pads installed. the door panels restored to beautiful condition. an NOS dash pad installed. the gauge cluster removed and cleaned. the wood grain Ranger trim removed. restored. and installed. including a new glove box trim and liner.  The headliner and visors were restored as well.
The original seat was removed. seat frame and tracks painted. new foam installed as needed. and a seat cover hand-sewn to reproduce the correct factory cover. including actual factory NOS Madrid grain vinyl and gray Comfort Weave insert material. I paid dearly for the exact correct material to make the truck truly outstanding.
This interior is essentially like new. and should outshine virtually all other restored trucks out there; it's just plain beautiful

The factory 400M engine has been completely rebuilt less than 1. 00 miles ago. and of course still runs like new.  It features performance parts including an RV2 camshaft. new lifters. valve job. Edelbrock aluminum intake. Edelbrock 4v carburetor. and K&N performance air filter.  The exhaust system is in great condition and has a new catalytic converter as well.  The power brake system was just rebuilt including a new booster and master cylinder.  The automatic transmission has been serviced and is in proper working order. as are the locking hubs and and transfer case.  The four-wheel-drive system operates as it should.
The axles are code H9 4. 11 ratio Limited Slip units; highly desirable and in proper working order.

Title. Payment. Shipping. Warranty:
Clear title in hand. matches the VIN exactly for export. inspection. etc.  
Payment is due within three days of auction's end via cash. deposit into my Bank of America account. or bank wire transfer.
Shipping is the full responsibility of the buyer.  I will make myself and the vehicle available during business hours with 24-48 hour notice.  I have a reliable shipping broker I've used for years who I can recommend; ultimately the choice is yours.
While every effort is being made to describe the vehicle as accurately as possible. it is in fact a 38-year-old vehicle. and being sold exactly as-is with NO warranty or guarantee expressed. written. or implied.  You are welcome to arrange an in-person inspection prior to the end of the auction.  

Feel free to contact Tim directly at 360-936-9257 in Vancouver. WA 98686.  This truck is gorgeous and will make someone VERY happy.  I have restored many. and this outshines all other Ford short beds I have done or seen.  Why pay $55k for a new Ford that won't stand out in a crowd when you can have this gorgeous classic for a fraction?  Virtually everyone who sees this truck does a double-take. it's like a time machine.
