1978 Restomod Automatic

428 Cobra Jet V8 ENGINE

1978 Ford F-100 Restomod Description:

Great two-tone paint, a loaded A/C interior, upgraded suspension, and serious big block V8 power all come together in this 1978 Ford F-100 to deliver a terrific restomod at quite a nice price. This truck makes a terrific first impression. You get great classic elements like the chrome bumpers and the distinct front end that debuted in '78. Plus, the premium trim does a fantastic job of being the separating line for the two-tone. But take a little closer look at the paint. You have a great period-correct Wimbledon White and burgundy, but it has a deep luster from a much more modern application. And this one looks positively aggressive with the badges expertly deleted in the front, a full bed cover, and that lowered suspension on bold 18-inch wheels. So the full package strikes that perfect balance where it's absolutely custom without losing its vintage charm. Inside, the exterior burgundy returns on the doors. That coordinates nicely with the custom stitching on the center console, kick plates, and seats. And speaking of the bucket seats, these are so aggressive, they look like they belong in a modern Mustang. They also power adjust to get you and your passenger in the perfect position. Plus, this one is loaded with more great modern features like power windows, power locks, power steering, a full AM/FM/CD stereo system, and R134a air conditioning. But this custom Ford is far more than just a coddler. And you know that the moment you slip behind the grippy sports steering wheel and see the full Dakota Digital gauge cluster with GPS speedo and large tach. Plus, the gate and ratchet operation of the shifter instantly lets you know this pickup means business. The engine bay is built for stout performance. So even the polished pieces that catch your eye - like the aluminum radiator, upgraded March pulleys, and braded hoses - are all about properly supporting this powerful motor. In fact, this one earns its Cobra valve covers, because you're looking at the a mighty 428 cubic-inch Cobra Jet V8. This motor only has a few hundred miles on it since it was built, and it has upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, aluminum heads, MSD ignition, and long tube headers that feed the growling dual exhaust. This is a serious power package, and so you have a race-prepped C4 three-speed automatic transmission with manual throttle body and 2500 RPM stall for complete control over the power band. This feeds a 31 spline axles rear with limited-slip and 3.55 gears for power take-offs. You even have Nitto Extreme Drag tires in the rear for terrific modern grip. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to sport terrific pieces like the traction bars, upgraded springs, and four-wheel power disc brakes. You would expect to a ton more for a powerful and stunning custom build like this. That's why you know this deal won't stay available for long. Don't miss out, call today!
