1990 Ford Ranger brake problem

I have this ranger that for the most part sits more than its used. Over the years at times the left front brake will stay engaged enough that it will get extremely hot to the point of locking up.
Letting it set and cool down will fix the problem till it decides to do it again at some random time.
I was told that the problem is the piston material sticking in the caliper and I am thinking for the amount of time it has been doing this I would be as well off changing the entire caliper, pads and rotor.
Is there anything else I am missing?

Brake hose, but you're probably right that it could benefit from fresh calipers. At any rate change both front brake hoses.
