This 1990 Ford F-150 is at an interesting crossroads. It's an exceptionally original pickup with a loaded interior and low miles on its numbers-matching fuel-injected V8. And at this affordable price, it's just as capable as a collector vehicle as it is a workhorse... and that's before you discovered this Ford's wild side.
The two-tone Medium Cabernet with metallic light smoke is just how you remembered it because it's the same paint that came from the factory more than a quarter-century ago. And yes, it really does look this good in person as it does in the pictures. It takes very careful ownership to have a vehicle that was destined to be a used up during everyday working, and instead it still can still shine up all these years later. The XLT Lariat trim package added a pleasing amount of brightwork to the truck, and even an extra pinstripe in the full-length body crease. All of it remains in very good condition, from the wheel well moldings, to the shiny factory wheels, to the big chrome bumpers, to the brushed stainless steel tailgate insert. But it's the accessories that let you know this well-preserved pickup is still ready to work. The front bug shield and tubular side steps offer more everyday usability. In back, the bed liner and ARE bed cover mean not only can you still carry the heavy loads in this long bed pickup, but also you can securely lock them up if your first stop isn't home. Plus, the tow hitch will make you the coolest vehicle everywhere from the boat ramp to the campsite.
Inside is Ford's upscale XLT Lariat interior, which features a comfortable red cloth on the seats and woodgrained trim on the dash to give it a more luxurious feel. It's 100% original, and even the bench shows only light modest wear. There's a fold-down center console so you can decide if you want to carry two friends or have a more individual level of comfort. Regardless of how many people are inside, this is quite a luxurious experience. Power windows, power locks, and the original AM/FM/cassette stereo are features you don't find on many vintage pickups today. The original factory steering wheel has the buttons for cruise control, and beyond that is a full set of factory gauges, including optional tach.
The original 5.0-liter V8 is under the hood, and it's a great choice in the F-150. Averaging less than 2,400 miles annually, this pickup has led a pampered life. And low mileage does not mean it missed out on servicing, and we have the maintenance records to prove it. The fuel-injected motor neatly straddles the line between power and economy, and if you take a closer look, this one has a bit of an upgrade. The K&N cold air intake and newer dual exhaust system with long tube headers means this sturdy V8 has more power and rumble than its sturdy appearance might suggest. It's mated to a rugged four-speed automatic overdrive transmission that's a great choice for anytime driving. Plus, with power steering, front disc brakes, and Goodyear tires, this is a comfortable cruiser. In fact, this F-150 is built for the long haul thanks to the dual fuel tanks.
When you check out the original window sticker, you realize it's the perfect mix of rugged and comfort. All of this comes in a nicely preserved pickup that's price to move quickly. So you already know you're going to have to act fast to take this one home. Call today!!!
