1978 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT

1978 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT


Engine: 400 CID V8
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 66,596 ( undocumented )

Now for sale in our Houston showroom is this super clean 1978 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT. For a little history on this generation of Broncos - the 1978-1979 Bronco is based on the Ford F-100 pickup truck (1973-1979 sixth generation). Alongside the shortened wheelbase of 104 inches, the major difference between the Bronco and F-100 is the Bronco's standard four-wheel-drive powertrain. This generation of the Bronco is fitted with part-time four-wheel drive and a New Process 205 gear-driven transfer case with the option of permanent four-wheel drive and a New Process 203 chain-driven transfer case. The 1978-1979 Bronco is fitted with a coil-sprung Dana 44 front axle and has a leaf-sprung Ford 9-inch axle in the rear. The 1978-1979 Bronco was available with two different V8 engines: the 5.8L 351M and the 6.6L 400. This Bronco comes with a freshened exterior, done in white with a very sharp-looking metallic cinnamon accent, that looks like a shiny metallic penny. It's equipped with the 400 CID V8, automatic transmission, and manually-actuated transfer case. Inside, the white and metallic cinnamon paint scheme continues. Since it's a Ranger XLT, you get the woodgrain dash, door appliques, and steering wheel accents. The seats and carpet are practically new, with the seats having been done in a nice brown synthetic leather and multi-color cloth insert pattern. While you're out tooling around town (or 4X4-ing in the backwoods), the Bluetooth-equipped AM/FM/CD radio allows you to take calls handsfree, or stream your MP3s through the head unit. The "off-roadability" is enhanced by the 31x10.5R15LT Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires that are wrapped around its American Racing aluminum wheels, and they have plenty of life in them, too! Additional options on this 1978 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT for sale include cold Air Conditioning, Anti-theft System, AM/FM/CD radio with Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Cloth and Synthetic Leather seating, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Rear Window, and Seat Belts. The cost of parts and restoration of these vehicles are increasing daily. They are not making any more and, therefore, they are becoming rarer by the day. Buy one complete and ensure your investment for the future. An excellent investment and something you can enjoy daily. Collectible vintage vehicles have historically appreciated at a rate greater than that stock market, gold and other arts and collectibles as documented by many articles and auction result tracking.
