This 1986 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat gets us excited because it is truly
vintage and it's genuinely premium. So when you can have a two-tone
pickup that has proper V8 power, an overdrive transmission, and a
cool vintage interior, it makes for all-around distinction.
As an up-market XLT Lariat, this one reminds you that some workmen
wanted a little style on the weekends, too. That's why the premium
trim and pinstriping are used to separate the tan and brown. This
two-tone was an upgrade later in life, but it has the right vintage
style. And today, it has an attractive gloss without striving for
perfection. Because, after all, this is from the era when the
family pickup went to work. So it's impressive in a way where no
one will ever accuse you of trying to drive a trailer queen. This
truck makes sure it remains functional. There's a full hard
tonneau, wide towing mirrors, and even working dual fuel tanks. But
more than just practical, we bet you love this classic because it
has clean and crisp lines that remind you of your father's or
The interior is pure classic comfort. It has a well-preserved
style, and the premium XLT feeling is everywhere, from the
wood-like trim to the pillow-top velour seat. It's not a perfect
time capsule, but it's an inviting atmosphere where you can feel
the nostalgia - right down to the texture on the smooth dash pad.
And this dash is period-correct with the dual-spoke steering wheel,
comprehensive gauges, and the correct AM/FM/cassette stereo. The
air conditioning has been updated to run on modern R134a
refrigerant, but it will need servicing and/or parts to blow cold
again. Besides, we bet your favorite calm winds come from opening
the side vent windows and sliding the rear glass. It gives you that
actual classic truck breeze through the cab.
Under the hood is Ford's 302ci/5.0-liter V8. While this is a
long-standing legend for robust power, a truck like this strikes a
very desirable balance. It has the age for a classic appearance,
but it's young enough to have electronic fuel injection and a
four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive from the factory.
And while we don't know if the odometer represents the full
mileage, we can tell the motor has been under good care just by how
it fires up and runs smoothly. Plus, there are nice anytime-driving
features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
Complete with the owner's manual, this F-150 has a smooth and
effortless driving style. It makes for a premium pickup that's pure
roiling nostalgia. And at an affordable price like this, you don't
want to miss this deal. Call now!
