Vehicle Description

1996 Ford F-150 Pickup

The great-great-grandfather to the F-150 was the Ford F-1 which debuted for 1948. It quickly became a favorite of farmers and small business owners. Despite its name, it never participated in a Formula 1 race. The F-150 moniker itself debuted for the 1975 model year, as the name for Ford's half-ton pickup which slotted between the lighter-duty F-100 and the heavier-duty F-250. Massive popularity soon ensued. How massive? So much so that the Ford F-Series has been not only the best-selling pickup for over 40 years running, but the best-selling vehicle for the last 35 years. It has consistently outsold such hugely popular rides as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The F-Series trucks are so popular that their total production comes in at a whopping 32 million trucks. In 2018 Ford sold over 1.075 million F-Series trucks, averaging a sale every 29.3 seconds.

For consignment, with its sleek looks, strong drivetrain choice, and sheer ubiquity, it's easy to understand why this ninth-generation Ford F-150 is well on its way to becoming a modern classic. Increasingly, collectors are looking for old school trucks they can actually enjoy from behind the wheel, and perhaps even pitch in from time to time with hauling or towing duties. This is the last generation to show up before the Big Rig era of uber large pickup trucks and our example for consignment is from the 1996 model year, dipped in bright red and sports an ultra low 66,550 title documented miles, the 1996 F-150 never looked so classic and good.

Please Note: during our review of this truck we note a total loss on the Carfax report, however this loss does not show up as a reconstructed/rebuilt branding on the title. This loss also does not show up on the NVMTIS vehicle history report.

Exterior
Vermillion Red bathes the straight steel of this pickup that shows with no rust however signs of body work do appear on the passenger's side and match up with the Carfax report of damage. The entire body appears to have been dipped in Vermillion and retains a wonderful shine. The grille and front and rear bumpers are looking good as are the aerodynamic headlights. Trimmings encircle the wheel wells and between these trimmings and midway up the body chrome spear which doubles as a protective rub strip. Down low are a short pair of diamond plate running/step boards to help with entrance and egress. The mirrors are black plastic and chromed, and on the back the tailgate has an aluminum panel with a black stripe running through it and a FORD badge at the passenger's edge. Topping off the bed is a Vermillion Red matching bed topper that offers protection for your cargo. Flipping up the topper rear window and opening the tailgate we are met with a bed which is lined with black plastic on the sides and bedfloor. 15-inch polished aluminum wheels are wrapped by 265/75R15 Firestone rubber on all 4 corners.

Interior
For the interior a gray broadcloth bench stretches from door to door and has a fold down armrest in the center. This seat presents as almost new with no tearing and only minor wrinkling. Gray plastic moldings abound on the doors and create the various panels for the armrest, storage bin upper and lower and the black plastic surround for the power window and lock toggles. A small area of the gray vinyl is also seen on the doors. A deep gray and black dash, original to the truck, is on and looking good. Black panels house the instruments, knobs and turns and the factory AM/FM/Cassette player along with the heater and A/C controls are in the center. A factory black leather wrapped steering wheel is fronting the dash and is complete with cruise control buttons. Some wear off of the leather is noted at the top of the wheel. A gray headliner is above, and clean gray carpeting is below being protected by gray rubber mats.

Drivetrain
Under the hood is a 5.8 liter V8 which is the engine the factory put in. It has EFI and a 4R70W 4-speed automatic transmission on the back with 3.55 TracLoc axles. All looking very good, nearly showroom fresh.

Undercarriage
Just patina, some surface rust, and road dirt underneath and no invasive rust noted. Power disc brakes on front and power drums on back. To provide the ride we have an independent front suspension with radius arms and coil springs and on the rear are traditional leaf springs. A stock style single exhaust is on and all is looking good.

Drive-Ability
A nice used truck in good shape right out of 1996 and looking the part in its 4x4 height. It started easily and ran like a champ on the test track with no issues coming up during the drive.

Somewhat low original miles (66,550), and looking good and ready to go to work, which is more than I can say about most people these days!
