For sale in our Detroit showroom is this beautiful 1977 Ford F150 Ranger XLT pickup. The Ford F Series is a line of pickup trucks and medium duty commercial trucks that were produced by Ford from 1973 to 1979. This generation also led into the introduction of the F-150 that is today’s most popular model. This generation is noted for the body panel’s durability as Ford used extensive amounts of galvanized sheet metal to fight corrosion. In 1976 the F series became the best selling truck in America, a title that it has held ever since. A luxury line called the Lariat was introduced for 1978; Ranger, Ranger XLT, and Ranger Lariat trim levels incorporated rectangular headlights with optional chrome headlight doors and chrome grille insert. This particular 1977 Ford Ranger has the very powerful 460 cubic inch numbers matching V8 lurking under the hood which was professionally rebuilt by Dynamic Engines just 5,000 miles ago, backed up by a C-6 automatic transmission. The Ranger is in extremely great condition having only 46,552 actual miles. The exterior is finished in an Emerald Green high gloss finish with beautiful chrome trim all the way around. The green interior looks just as good as the exterior finish and looks as though the truck is right off the showroom floor. This Ford has been stored for most of its life and is awaiting the right person to make this their daily driver. With such few miles it is like a brand new truck, only you can make it yours for about half the price of the new one at the dealer down the road.

1977 Ford Thunderbird


Engine: 400 CID V8
Transmission: C6 Automatic
Mileage: 43492 ( undocumented )

This awesome 1977 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 7th generation T-Bird was released in 1977 as an intermediate model instead of the full size of the prior generation. Sales would see a huge jump in 77 selling more than 300k cars which was a very impressive feat for the T Bird. This example is a two-owner car that was bought from an estate sale about 7 years ago. The original bill of sale is included and shows the purchase price of almost 8000 dollars. A lot of money at that time but a small price to pay for all this car. The original paint is great condition with a great shine while the deep tan color is classic 70’s. The opera window is a nice touch and was something only available on the T Bird. Under the hood is the original 400 that gets the car down the road nicely. The low-end torque gets up to speed nicely while the 2.73 gear gives the car decent fuel efficiency. The transmission shifts as it should with smooth upshifts that are typical proof of these old cruisers. Open the door and one of the cleanest interiors I have seen is just asking to be sat in. The tan cloth is soft and feels more like velour than your typical cloth. The bucket seats have arm rest that fold up which is something I have not seen before. The dash is stuffed full of gauges keeping everything monitored giving you a sense of confidence over the typical warning lights. If you have been wanting one of these classic 70’s cruisers that goes down the road like only they can this 77 T bird is the perfect one. Options on this 1977 Ford Thunderbird include, AC, AM/FM, Power Windows, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Cloth Interior, Seat Belts, and with Radial Tires. To view this 1977 Ford Thunderbird, including an HD video, at www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For more information call the showroom at (812) 294 1555 or email louisville@gatewayclassiccars.com.
