Those boxy/beefy F-150s you know are now the ones now up to start
appreciating in the classic market. After all, this is where
definitive style meets desirable features like a fuel-injected V8
and an overdrive transmission. So it's great to find this 1989 Ford
F-150 XLT Lariat that's also a local boy with plenty of style.
This generation of pickup knows how to deliver the right kind of
style. The lines are crisp and confident, and the glossy paint
makes sure to show that off. And this two-tone is a later respray
that has a sophisticated style that's perfect for the upper-level
XLT Lariat trim. The red pinstriping, bright wheels, chrome
bumpers, shining rockers, and upgraded grille are all part of this
premium presentation. But what really makes this classic appealing
is that it still shows off it has a ready-to-work attitude. There's
a durable bed liner, full bed rails, and dual fuel tanks. More than
just looking good and being handy, this truck has a solid history.
The low odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage,
and that means averaging under 2,300 miles annually. Plus, this was
sold new only about 10 minutes from our showroom, so this truck has
the right respected feel of a truck that has likely been a local
cruiser for the last 30+ years.
The XLT Lariat's premium style continues feeling inside. It starts
with a seat finished in a comfy velour. The high-back sides and
fold-down armrest means this has a bucket-like level of comfort
when you don't need the middle seat. You have more great features,
like power windows, power locks, a full gauge package with tach,
and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. This has
cold-blowing air conditioning, but most days we bet you'll just
love sliding the rear glass and opening up the side vent windows.
It gives you the kind of breeze flowing through the cab that only a
classic pickup can offer.
Under the hood is quite a tidy engine bay, and Ford's famous
5.0-liter V8 is right in the center. This came from the factory
with modern electronic fuel injection, and it's a well-maintained
package, so this is a classic that still fires up with a work-ready
eagerness. So this has an everyday kind of appeal. Power steering,
power brakes with discs up front, and modern tires make it quite a
comfortable cruiser. Plus, the four-speed automatic transmission
shifts smoothly all the way into overdrive. And the cruise control
even makes this an easy highway machine.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and original
warranty card. This is a cool classic with a terrific history and
all the best features. That's why this deal is irresistible. Call
