BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED LIGHT JADE 1978 FORD F150 4X4.jpg


This 1978 Ford F150 is a beautiful truck that was restored a few years ago. It is in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically and just has a great look to it. We love the Light Jade paint which is the original color for this truck. When it was restored it was treated to some nice upgrades. This is an original michigan truck that was rust-proofed from new (have receipt) and the last owner purchased from the original owner (we have the Bill of Sale from initial purchase). This truck was obviously never driven in the winter and had excellent care. We rarely find Michigan truck as clean as this one. The body on this F150 is excellent!!! It is very clean and very straight and the metal looks to be original. We found no patches, no bondo...it is all metal. The truck was repainted in its original color of light Jade. This is a beautiful color that you do not see very often. The paint looks amazing. All of the trim and brightwork was replaced when it was restored. They also added a spray in bedliner. Check out the undercarriage pictures and you will see it is excellent as well. The interior was also restored and looks excellent. The seat was recovered, dash replaced, carpet replaced, and it is mostly original looking with the exception of some aftermarket gauges added for more accurate readings and a tach. All of the lights, gauges, and wipers are working. The radio could use some speakers and the horn is not working.

Mechanically this truck is ready to roll and everything was gone through. It runs and drives so nice and they added a 460 V8 engine that runs smooth and has great power!! Whoever rebuilt this engine did it right and tuned it very well. They added an aluminum intake,Holley Carb, mallory Ignition, stainless fender well exit headers and 3 Inch Flowmaster exhaust that sounds amazing!!! The C6 Transmission shifts really nice and the NP205 Transfer Case is working as it should be. It has a Dana 44 Front Axle and a 9 Inch Rear End. Gear ratio is 3.50. Some other nice additions are stainless steel brake lines, a 6 Inch Lift done right with quad shocks front and rear, radius drop brackets, and all new bushings. What this all means is that this truck drives great even with a lift!! They also added cool Mickey Thompson Rims with 35 Inch BFG All Terrains.
