1978 Ford F150 Ranger

1978 Ford F150 Ranger


Engine: 300 I6
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 69,145 ( actual )

We at Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa are excited to present to you this rustic 1978 Ford F150 Ranger. For 1978, the appearance of the F-Series changed the most since 1972, when the split grille was overhauled in favor of a single-piece grille insert design. Much larger than before, the grille no longer incorporated the headlights, turn signals or the "F O R D" letters. The headlights were located in housings beside the grille, and the park/turn signal lamps were located below them. Additionally, a new chrome-plated letter set reading "F O R D" could now be seen on the hood immediately above the grille. In 1977 (1978 models), the round headlight design was retained for the Custom trim level. A luxury "Lariat" trim was also introduced for 1978; Ranger, Ranger XLT, and Ranger Lariat trim levels incorporated rectangular headlights with optional chrome headlight bezels and the chrome grille insert. Dual Fuel tanks in the bed became standard. For 1979, round headlights were replaced by rectangular ones on all trim levels, and the surrounding grille insert that framed the headlights was now available in either black or chrome to match that of the aluminum grille frame. Also new for 1978 was the option of part- or full-time four-wheel-drive on SuperCab models. Full-time four-wheel drive utilized a chain-driven NP203 transfer case, while part-time four-wheel drive was equipped with a gear-driven NP205. This truck is a piece of history is ready to go to work with its 300 cubic inch straight six cylinder engine mated to an automatic transmission. Options include AC, AM/FM radio, cd player, spare tire, cloth interior and aluminum/alloy wheels.
