Vehicle Description

A combination of unusually light usage and consistent care has left this 1987 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 4x4 in fine shape. It's logged only a little over 54,000 miles during its 30-plus year life span and its drivetrain, which features four-wheel drive surefootedness, is in reassuringly solid working order, leaving you well-prepared should the call of the road less travelled beckon.

As an '87, this sturdy Ford represents the eighth generation of the F series line and wears a more rounded, refined front clip with improved aerodynamics as a result. The two-tone brown and tan paint scheme it's draped in is a signature look for the model and remains in its original state - this truck has yet to venture into a paint booth for a freshening up session and while you can see evidence of the passing of time here and there, it's still pretty clean. The bumpers both fore and aft are unblemished and well-aligned and show no signs of having run afoul of any immovable objects and the collection of badging on display here is consistently sharp - in particular, the emblems calling out this pickup's 4-wheel drive abilities really pop against their dark background. The glass surrounding the cabin is nice and clear and the sliding rear windshield is a welcome feature.

Inside the cab, everything is in very good order, with the tan interior looking fresh and road-ready - a definite beneficiary of this truck's low mileage. Respectful use and shielding from the elements has left the bench seat in good shape and still plushly padded and below, the carpet appears to have been replaced and though it could use an adjustment, that's not the most involved of repairs. In back, the bed area looks great - its rubber matting has served its protective duties well and the absence of shifting cargo has left the surrounding walls clean and unblemished. The factory air conditioning blows cold and strong through the in-dash vents to cool the interior and the original AM/M/Cassette stereo still performs its audio duties as intended. Beyond the factory steering wheel, the dash area harbors clear, easily readable gauges and there are no cracks to be found on the pad running across the top.

Climb into the cab and turn the key and you'll quickly come to the realization that this truck has been well maintained and, due to its unusually light usage, it retains an entirely stock drivetrain. It's propelled by a 5.8 liter engine that's running in top form as it pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission with an overdrive gear to keep RPMs down at highway speeds. While this top tier F-150 retains its factory stance, it nevertheless offers plenty of wheel clearance, and with the agility of 4-wheel drive within easy reach on the transmission tunnel, you'll be equipped for rugged terrain on short notice. Its road manners remain exemplary even more than 30 years since its debut - its power steering remains smooth and responsive, so navigating this sharp looking workhorse is a low effort affair and power brakes that position discs up front bring its set of 15" steel wheels wrapped with Nexen tires to prompt, dependable stops. As you'd likely anticipate on a vehicle so carefully looked after, the undercarriage remains in good condition - you can see some expected patina below due to its age, but its components are straight and solid.

This 1987 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 4x4 would be a great acquisition for the classic truck enthusiast who also puts a high premium on reliable drivability. Call today!
