This ad is for a clean 1977 Ford F250 ¾ Ton Ranger 4-wheel drive pickup truck. It has a strong 400 cu. in. engine with 54k miles since being fully rebuilt. The 4-speed manual transmission was rebuilt only 16k miles ago and includes a new clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing. The part-time transfer case is a divorced Model 205. The front axle is the strong single-piece Dana 44 and is fitted with Warn turnout hubs. The rear axle is the free-floating Dana 60 and is built to last. Differential gears are 4.09/4.10. This truck is built to last! It will be delivered wearing a set of Cooper 8-ply 7.50x16 heavy duty tube-type mud and snows for exceptional traction. (Tubeless LT235/85 R16 10-ply street tires are available separately at time of truck purchase - price to be negotiated.) Nothing stops this machine when it digs in! Fit it up with chains and you'll go anywhere, including through the snotty red clays of Colorado. The 8 foot bed will carry a hefty load with the assistance of its helper springs. This truck is in excellent mechanical condition - it is HEAVY DUTY and STRONG. This California vehicle has had one owner for the last 17 years that has babied it, giving it 3K mile oil changes, greasings before and after every trip, and a thorough underbody wash after each adventure. You'll find no rust on this machine that is still wearing its original paint. The vehicle is stock and has new side windows channels, new carpet, and new luxury seat covering. As with all Rangers this machine is factory equipped with air conditioning and power steering. Sorry, no cruise control. Other amenities include a heavy duty trailer hitch in the rear, and an equally heavy duty trailer hitch and pull/lift rings up front. Brakes, u-joints, shocks, and heater core were recently replaced. The truck packs dual fuel tanks, having a total capacity of 40 gallons. A third tank can be added way out back. The 8 foot bed is equipped with the optional storage compartment on the right side that is handy for tow chains etc. that will allow you to pull your buddy out of any mud hole. A custom storage compartment under the hood easily stores tire chains and tools. The cabin is fitted with an AM/FM/cassette radio for your listening pleasure, and a CB radio that will enable you to find your lost companions while trooping around on any hunting trip. This dream comes complete with lifetime parts receipts and factory maintenance manuals.
