You Won’t Believe How Much This 1978 Ford F-150 Brought at Auction
Completely Restored 1978 Ford F-150 shocks everyone at auction.
Check out this 1978 Ford F-150 Custom 4×4 sidestep pickup that just sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction. Given a complete A to Z restoration, this menacing F-150 pickup now sports a powerful 351 ci Windsor V8 engine, and a 3-speed automatic transmission.
Dick Cepek 35″ Extreme Country tires accompany the Pro Comp shocks, which ensure a smooth ride through mud, snow or an unavoidable city pothole. Power steering and power brakes make this a relatively civil machine around town, while a Skyjacker 6″ suspension lift provides the additional off-road performance this truck truly deserves. Not only does it look the part, but it can also perform!
The exterior gets its black-on-black shine from a clear coat formula from Matrix System Automotive Finishes. The interior features unmarred upholstery, and a well-cared-for dashboard. Another nice touch is the shiny new oak bed flooring which enhances the pickup’s appearance, and helpes it warrant such an outrageous price.
So, this bad boy went to someone’s collection for the price of $38,500 bucks, or the price of a well-equipped 2017 Ford F-150 Lariat. We don’t know about you, but while we love old-school Ford trucks, we think this one’s a bit outrageous!
