Vehicle Description

This 1997 Ford F150 Lariat 4x4 pickup has passed beyond the realm of "nice work truck" and is steadily on course to become a great collectable. Featuring a ton of options, a great color combination, and incredibly low miles, it's only a matter of time before these '90s trucks start bringing big bucks. Here's your chance to own a rare low-mileage, low-ownership one now.

The black paint job on this F150 should look familiar if you were a car guy in the '90s, but it's also one of the more timeless looks that came out during that period, and marked the beginning of the radically streamlined body for the 10th generation F-series pickups. Accented by the silver bottom section, factory pinstripes, and just enough chrome trim to look upscale, the shiny black finish gives the half-ton a sporty look that's kind of an homage to the great pickups of the past. The paint looks very good and has been well-maintained, suggesting that this truck has never worked hard in its life and has lived an easy life in the sun. The Lariat trim package added a bit of flash to the truck, and all of it remains in very good to excellent condition, from the wheel well moldings to the big chrome bumpers to the badges all around. You'll notice that inside that killer Flareside bed is a factory drop-in bedliner, so it's still up to working weekends along the way.

Inside is Ford's upscale XLT Lariat interior, which features gray leather upholstery and practically untouched components everywhere you look. It's 100% original, and even the split-bench seat shows practically zero wear, further proof of those insanely low miles. There's a pair of carpeted floor mats protecting the original carpets so they're still in great shape showing only modest wear and age, and the door panels remain quite good as well. Even the buttons, switches, and handles look new. With all the heavy-duty equipment on this truck, it was obviously outfitted to do some towing, so there's a complete array of gauges in the dash, plus cold factory A/C, cruise control, a tilt steering column, power windows and locks, and a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. Even the original AM/FM/CD changer stereo system remains in place and sounds great today. Looking for a time capsule? Well, here it is.

Ford's venerable Triton 5.4 liter V8 is under the hood was the first ever overhead-camshaft engine to be installed in a full-size pickup truck, and it's a great choice in the F150. It neatly straddles the line between power and economy, and makes great bucket-loads of torque while it goes about its business. Even Ford's trucks were fuel injected early on, and the long-runner intake manifold on this one was designed to make low-end torque, which is, of course, a truck's bread-and-butter. Showing only 6,496 original miles, it's 100% stock under the hood, with signs of regular maintenance and more proof that this truck lived in a warm climate, and the engine runs beautifully. It also features heavy duty coolers for all the fluids, a massive radiator, electronic 4x4, and the aforementioned 4-speed automatic overdrive gearbox to make the most of its output. The original exhaust system uses a chambered muffler to keep the Triton sounding suitably muscular and for a 4x4 it's shockingly clean underneath and still sits at the stock ride height. 265/70/17 Toyo radials are fitted to the original wheels, which also feature bright chrome center caps.

Documented with the original manuals and window stickers, this low-mileage truck is just waiting patiently for its opportunity to join your collection. These F-150s are starting to skyrocket in popularity, now is your chance to snag a beautiful low-mileage example of one, before they get out of reach. Give us a call today!
