The square-jawed early 1970s Ford trucks are true icons that are becoming harder to find. So we're quite happy to offer this 1972 F-100 Ranger XLT that has had a real investment in added comfort, style, and especially V8 power - all while keeping its vintage charm.
The green and cream color theme does a great job of representing the earth-tones we love in the 1970s. In fact, have you seen how the premium Ranger XLT full-length trim now even has a wood-like insert? So not only does it make for a well-defined separating line, but this looks like it's especially one with nature. There's even more wood-like trim on the tailgate. It's all part of a thoughtful restoration this pickup was given later in life. As you look over the full package, you can tell there have been solid investments in this pickup. But if you're a real truck person, you'll also be happy to know the overall finish is no trailer queen. It wants to be the right mix of stylish and useful. You see that mix perfectly in the truck bed where it has full liner paint to protect it from your weekend chores, and the side rails are as much about strapping down loads as they are adding to the classic brightwork appearance.
The tan interior keeps the natural theme going, and you can also really see more of the quality investments in this pickup. The seat has the clean look of a new piece, and it has the kind of comfy cloth inserts you really wanted in the 1970s. Thick-pile carpet, rugged floor mats, a smooth dash pad, a custom headliner, and nice door panels give this a great atmosphere. It has some nice classic details, like the clear factory gauges, wood-like inserts in the dash, working dome light, and even the dealer air conditioning unit is still in place (it will require components and/or servicing to blow cold again.) But what this especially does well is give you a bit more of a driver-ready package than the factory ever did. You have a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel that feels grippy in your hands, and the cleanly mounted auxiliary readouts give some essential info about what's going on under the hood.
When you look under the hood, the ultra-tidy presentation and Ford Racing air grabber really get you prepared for a well-done setup with plenty of big blue oval muscle. This is Ford's big 390 cubic-inch motor, and it has been fully built. It starts with a full rotating assembly built with a bored .060 over kit for 401 ci total. It has been enhanced and fortified with Clevite bearings, ARP bolts, a double roller timing chain, 10.5:1 compression, Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. A set of Sanderson ceramic-coated headers add power and rumble as they feed a custom H-pipe dual exhaust. This even has the right supporting components, like a Champion four-row aluminum radiator, dual electric fans, and an Optima red top battery. It's a powerful package that is said to make 415 horsepower and 435 ft-lb of torque. Connecting to this big motor is a stout C6 three-speed automatic transmission with a custom-built shit kit, and that feeds into a Ford 9-inch rear. You have features like power steering and upgraded wheels with modern sport tires to give you a solid feeling on the road.
This is cool style, real truck usability, and serious power. That makes for a total package pickup that you know you need to take home today. Call now!
