The 1979 model changed the circle headlights to square headlights but the rest of the truck was the same.

In 1979 the F series truck became the bestselling vehicle in the world, this was also the first time that ford motor company introduced the slogan " built ford tough." The F-250 came in Custom, Ranger, Ranger XLT and Ranger Lariat trim choices, with Custom being the base level and Lariat the most luxurious.
