Up for auction by Rose Lane Restorations is an amazing late 1977 Ford F-250 Lariat XLT 4x4 pickup featuring a beautiful new professional interior and exterior restoration. She’s a fully-loaded beauty equipped from the factory with Power Steering, Power Brakes, and the high-line Lariat XLT trim package. This is an extremely straight truck with beautiful better-than-new bodywork and fresh two-stage paint in factory-original and rare Dark Nectarine Metallic finish. It is in exceptionally well-maintained turn-key daily-driver mechanical condition, as well as being from a dry high desert climate, with no presentation of rust. The interior is the amazing top-of-the-line Lariat trim level featuring the ’77-’79 only deluxe upholstery package, just like new. Truly a gorgeous truck that looks to me like it just drove off the showroom floor. Get in, turn the key, and go. Details as follows:

Body:

The truck began as a very straight high-desert survivor with no outer body rust presentation, still wearing original paint. The truck was then disassembled for restoration including the removal of all the exterior aluminum and stainless trim, the grill surround and grills, all lights, reflectors, and marker assemblies, and all glass including the door side glass, wing window assemblies, front windshield, and back glass. Of course all the weatherstrip was removed as well. The bumpers, bumper brackets, and wheels were removed, along with the entire interior. The original Dark Nectarine Metallic paint was then sanded down or stripped off as necessary, and the body panels massaged to the beautiful condition you see today. The truck was then treated to a high-end 2-stage RM Diamont professional paint job, using multiple base and clear coats give the truck a beautiful and deep finish that exceeds what it came with new. was also completely repainted and restored as well.

The front chrome Sport Bumper is original and nicely cleaned up, the rear step bumper and brackets restored, and the factory “sport” side mirrors, door handles, door locks, antenna, bolts, etc. restored or replaced as needed. The aluminum grill surround, and the optional fancy Ranger side- and tailgate trim was cleaned, polished, painted, and clear-coated. While not perfectly as-new, the trim is beautiful, as you can see. The grills were restored, the headlamps replaced, the tail light lenses and bulbs replaced, the side marker assemblies and bulbs replaced, and the front marker lights and bulbs replaced. The emblems were removed and restored (front fender Lariat badges now back in place), as were the wiper arms.

The front windshield and gasket is new, the back glass and gasket new, and the door and wing windows are originals in great condition. New door window felts and wipers have been installed along with new window channel, and new door weather stripping to finish out the soft seal parts.

The bed is also completely rust-free, and has been painted to match... no rust at all. The tailgate is likewise in beautiful condition as well. The underside of the truck is rust-free and treated to a Zero Rust paint and rust-preventative coating, and along with the wheel well openings, axles, drivelines. These areas have been nicely detailed to add to the exterior beauty. The floors, rockers, frame, cab mounts, corners, etc. are all exceptional and rock-solid.

Panel and door fitment are very nice; we perform all the alignment before the paint work is done and blueprint the panel mounting areas for an optimum fit. The side glass windows roll up and down smoothly.

Interior:

The interior has just been fully restore, and is gorgeous as you an see. Details include a restored and dyed uncracked original dash pad, a new Doeskin Tan molded carpet kit, new high line Tan and Ivory Lariat seat upholstery ($1,500.00 just for the seat), restored sun visors, restored rear view mirror, original Lariat headliner, new Tan door panels with the original fancy Lariat two-tone inserts and new armrests. The transfer case and shifter arms have been repainted, knobs detailed, pedals painted, new pedal pads, new shifter and transfer case boots, new door sill plates, and more. The gauge lens was removed and polished, and the gauges cleaned. The gauges, turn signals, brake lights, headlights, heater, wiper, etc. are all in proper working condition. The fancy Lariat steering wheel is still in nice condition as well. Beautiful like-new interior.

Mechanicals/Drivetrain:

The engine is the original 400M V8 in excellent turnkey running condition with only 36,000 miles since rebuildThe engine was rebuilt with performance parts including an Edelbrock aluminum 4v intake, new Edelbrock 4v carburetor, Edelbrock RV2 cam, lifter, and spring package, new HEI high energy electronic ignition, new water pump, and more. A new performance dual exhaust system was installed including headers and a Flow Master muffler. The engine sounds very healthy and is very responsive, with fresh tune-up parts, fluids, and filters. Turn the key and go.

The factory manual transmission has been serviced, has a solid clutch, and shifts as it should.

The front and rear axles are the original Dana /Spicer Limited Slip units with 4.10 gears; Dana 60 in the rear and Dana 44 in front, with disc brakes. The truck is equipped with true power steering, and power brakes, both of which are in good order.

The truck drives very nicely, tracks straight down the road, and steers easily and well. It stops well and straight; the truck is a lot of fun to drive. She turns heads wherever she goes, especially now, looking brand-new.

The wheels are the original 16” steel wheels, freshly powder coated in Wimbledon White, and wearing brand-new 285/85/16 (35”) radial M/Stires. New Rancho RS 5000 shock absorbers round out the suspension at all four corners.

While not a nut-and-bolt “Concourse” restoration, this truck is a no-excuses beauty that is going to make someone very happy!

Payment, Title, Shipping:

Clear title in hand, matches VIN exactly for export, inspection, etc.

While every effort has been made to describe the vehicle as accurately as possible, it is in fact a 42-year-old classic truck, and therefore being sold as-is, without warranty or guarantee expressed, written, or implied. While the truck may appear as-new, it is a restored used vehicle, and not perfect; you can expect minor flaws as appropriate of a truck of this age.

Please be ready to make payment in full within 3 days of auction’s end via cash, deposit into my Bank of America account, or bank wire transfer.

Shipping is the full responsibility of the buyer; I own a classic car restoration shop and can recommend a reliable and affordable broker who I have used many times... ultimately the choice must be yours alone. And yes, I would be happy do discuss the restoration of your vehicle... I just moved into a spacious 16,000 square foot facility and have the room, equipment, and talent to handle most any restoration.

Feel free to call me directly at 360-936-9257 with any questions you may have. I may be willing to end the auction early for the right offer.
