1970 Ranger XLT
Would be the "Top of the Line" in the light truck series.
2-tone paint would be the norm
side trim on the peak that runs down the side of the truck
rear side markers should have a painted on silver trim or chrome bezel as well.
perhaps a bit of insulation or sound deadener in the cab.
Under dash AC was common in the better pickups.
A Ford "Hang On" unit that would have been installed by the dealer.
Chrome trim on the tailgate even with the top and bottom of the taillight bezels.
Taillights would also have chrome trim.
Probably came chrome bumpers front and rear (not a step rear bumper)
Chromed grille and headlight doors
Chrome trim on the interior doors at the top and bottom of the door panels.
Woodgrained dash trim.
"RANGER XLT" at the rear just above the peak and even with the top of the taillights.
May have had cloth seats (Black) trimmed in red vinyl
Absolutely stunning pickups when new
I still think the 67-72 F-series has been the best looking pickup ever built.
And trucks can be hotrods----I have a few
454 1979 C-10 bought it new when I was still 18
454 1959 ElCamino----state says it's a truck
High Performance 289/4-spd 1965 Ranchero----state says it's a truck
and of course my wheezy 307 powered 66 ElCamino----state says it's a truck
