For Sale: 1997 Ford F150 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1997 Ford F-150 Choo Choo Customs is a different kind of classic truck. It's a useful pickup with a bed liner and a trailer hitch, but when it also has been modified from day one to look cooler and be extra comfy. That's why you know this value-priced Ford is also a terrific cruiser.

The people at Choo Choo Customs were some of the best at creating well-integrated custom packages. They were the reason Chevrolet trusted them to be the only producer of final-gen El Camino SS, and on this F-150 they offer the same level of factory-like quality. You see it in pieces like the custom color-matched lower valance. Today it makes this truck look like the SVT Lightning, but actually, that speedy pickup wasn't even out when this one was made! And you just have to love how the matching full body kit not only has integrated step boards, but also hugs every curve of the stepside body. The full maroon paint package is not perfect, however, the level of preservation and quality of the body really do showcase how well this one has been respected over its lifetime. But good care does not mean missing out on usefulness. You have a full bed liner, and the trailer hitch features both a proper wiring harness and a trailer brake. So this custom F-150 can also earn its keep.

Inside, this custom Ford shows off its practical and loaded side. Choo Choo updated the leather interior, center console, and plenty of wood-like trim. There's even an overhead console. A bucket seat, tilt steering column, armrests, and a full gauge package make it easy to get comfortable to drive the long hauls. And you also have all the best features, like power windows, power locks, cruise control, dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The stereo has even been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD/XM unit that can plug in your iPod. The handy extended cab is nice for added secure storage, and the full back seat has proper seats belts to easily bring along family and friends. This was the first year for the new generation F-series, and it debuted some clever features, like the rear opening door that gives better access for passenger and loading cargo.

Another great upgrade for this new generation is in the engine bay. It was the debut year for Ford's 4.6-liter modular V8, and this one has the clean and tidy look of a very original-style package. Today we now know these fuel-injected powerhouses to be both versatile and hardy. So it makes for an ideal all-around driver for both in-town and highway use. The same goes for the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. Plus, features like power steering and power brakes with front discs keep this one everyday useful.

The sale come complete with the owner's manual packet, including a manual from Choo Choo Customs. This F-150 is distinct inside and out. So you can make a statement for a very affordable price... that is, if you're the first one here to snatch it up this deal. Call today!!!
