This Blue & White 1979 F-100 Has Aged Gracefully
The 1970’s were a great time for Ford and its legendary F-Series trucks. The F-150 made its debut, and in 1976 the F-Series became the best-selling vehicle in America – a title it has held ever since. And for many fans of Ford Trucks, 1978-79 represents the best of the breed.
The two-year only body style brought with it a number of changes – a single piece grille insert replaced the split grille, the headlights and turn signals moved into housings outside the grille, and the Ford logo moved to the hood. The look, though short lived, is still beloved today and has aged quite gracefully.
This clean 1979 F-100 is a good example why. The newer blue and white paint looks fantastic on the classic lines, the trim is in great shape, and the aftermarket wheels actually look like they belong there. Things are equally nice inside where tan leather represents a nice upgrade over the stock vinyl.
Power comes from the legendary 302 V8, which is backed up by a 3-speed automatic transmission. This is also an original power steering and power brakes equipped truck, which is a nice thing these days. Overall, this ’79 is a perfect driver condition example of the most popular truck Ford ever made. The asking price of just north of $10,000 ain’t bad either. I just wish we could all age as gracefully as this F-100
