Question Bud's Ford Truck - Urban Cowboy

I just watched Urban Cowboy, and noticed that "Bud" (John Travolta) drives a black F150. Can anyone help me identify the year, specs., etc.?

Thanks from Houston.

Bud's Ford Truck - Urban Cowboy

It's been a while since I've seen that show (it was made in 1980!), but I think that truck was a 1979 Lariat. I could be wrong though???

Anybody else?

It's the 79 F150 Ranger. Just like mine, only mines a 78 with a slightly different package. And pretty sure Bud's truck is a 4x4.

Regardless, the 79's and earlier were some fricken tough.
