You immediately take notice when you have a single cab, short-bed
classic pickup with the larger optional V8 and a cool two-tone
style. And this 1994 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 gets even better the deeper
you dig into the details. Because this one has the right mix of
capable pickup, preserved classic, and loaded cruiser.
The first thing you notice about this one is the paint. The
two-tone is a distinct combination of Oxford White with a streak of
Deep Forest Green up the middle. Pinstripes and full-length trim
not only separate the two colors, but they also help highlight how
well-respected the sheet metal is. So while the odometer is
believed to reflect this truck's full mileage, you can also see in
the details that this has been cared for like the premium XLT that
it is. There's a brightness to the alloy wheels, grille, and chrome
bumpers that give this classic the right flair. Plus, the darker
elements, like the side step bars, full bed liners, and rear
trailer hitch remind you that a well-preserved truck also knows how
to get to work.
An XLT-level interior is also quite inviting. It starts with a pair
of comfy high-back bucket seats, and when there isn't someone in
the middle jump seat, it folds into a large center console. It's
loaded with the best features like power windows, power locks,
power mirrors, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, a tilt steering column,
and driver's airbag. These F-150s still had the side vent windows,
and that goes with the sliding rear glass for a nice airflow
through the cab. And whenever that's not enough there's
cold-blowing air conditioning.
Ford's 5.8-liter V8 was another one of those expensive but
worthwhile upgrades to this truck. It has a long-standing
reputation for being a hardy powerhouse. And that only gets better
in the modern era of fuel injection. The whole setup has a
well-maintained and stock look. So the V8 fires up eagerly and is
ready to hit the trail. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case is as easy
as pushing a button, and it gives you proper go-anywhere ability.
But this truck feels so solid, you'll just like it for cruiser
dusty, too. Power steering and power brakes with discs up front
make it every-day easy. Cruise control and a four-speed automatic
transmission with highway-friendly overdrive even makes it nice for
the long haul.
This is the classic two-tone pickup loaded with all the best
features. So if you want a classic 4x4 that has daily driver
appeal, call today!
