When combined with a Cummins powerplant, a Ford rig takes on the nickname "Fummins." The restored 1979 F-350's engine is a common-rail, 24-valve, 5.9-liter turbodiesel that features a custom aluminum radiator, intercooler, and cold-side charge-air tubing.

A leather headliner, dash cover, and door panels compliment the F-350's two-tone leather bucket seats and center console. The "Ranger XLT" woodgrain trim is still present, as is the period-correct audio. The unique cabin is completed by a new steering wheel, Dakota Digital instruments, air conditioning, and cruise control.

The profile of the 1979 Ford F-350 Ranger XLT is fantastic. The concave horizontal body lines on either side of the 1973-1979 Ford F-Series trucks are referred to as "Dentsides" by Ford aficionados. The truck has a lofty, muscular appearance thanks to its 1-ton Dodge Ram chassis, 37-inch tires, and bespoke Detroit steel wheels. On the wheels, notice the OEM Ford hubcaps.
