F-150 XLT Lariat 4X4
67K ACTUAL MILES, SOUTHERN TRUCK, 302 V8, AOD, COLD AC, GOOD OPTIONS, CLEAN 4X4
This 1989 Ford F150 Lariat 4x4 pickup has passed beyond the realm of "nice work truck" and is steadily on course to become a great collectable. Featuring a ton of options and a great color combination, it's only a matter of time before these "bricks" start bringing big bucks. Here's your chance to own a rare low-mileage one now.
The black paint job on this F150 should look familiar if you were a car guy in the '80s, but it's also one of the more timeless looks that came out during that period. Accented by a just enough chrome trim to look upscale, the shiny black finish gives the half-ton a sporty look that's kind of an homage to the great pickups of the past. The paint is not very old and has been well-maintained, with a distinct lack of bumps and bruises, suggesting that this truck has never worked hard in its life and has lived an easy life in the sun. The Lariat trim package added brightwork (and a lot of it) to the truck, and all of it remains in very good to excellent condition, from the wheel well moldings to the big chrome bumpers to the brushed stainless steel tailgate insert. And speaking of tailgates, you'll notice that the bed is protected by a heavy duty spray-in bedliner so it's still up to a few working weekends along the way.
Inside is Ford's upscale XLT Lariat interior, which features red cloth upholstery and woodgrained trim on the dash to give it a more luxurious feel. It's 100% original, and even the bench seat shows only modest wear, although the sun can be hard on fabrics. There's a pair of rubber floor mats protecting the original carpets so they're still in good shape showing only modest wear and age, and the door panels remain quite good as well. And no, that's not the carpet pulling away from the lower edges, it's a handy map pocket. With all the heavy-duty equipment on this truck, it was obviously outfitted to do some towing, so there's a complete array of gauges in the dash, plus cold factory A/C, cruise control, a tilt steering column, power windows and locks, and a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. There's also a sliding rear window for easy ventilation when A/C isn't needed. Even the original AM/FM/cassette stereo system remains in place and sounds great today.
Ford's venerable 5.0 liter V8 is under the hood (that's a 302 to some of you out there), and it's a great choice in the F150. It neatly straddles the line between power and economy, and makes great bucket-loads of torque while it goes about its business. Even Ford's trucks were fuel injected early on, and the long-runner intake manifold on this one was designed to make low-end torque, which is, of course, a truck's bread-and-butter. Showing only 67,312 original miles, it's quite stock under the hood, with signs of regular maintenance and more proof that this truck lived in a warm climate, and the engine runs beautifully. It also features heavy duty coolers for all the fluids, a massive radiator, and the aforementioned automatic gearbox (recently rebuilt) to make the most of its output. A custom Flowmaster 2-1-2 exhaust system keeps the 5.0 sounding suitably muscular and for a 4x4 it's shockingly clean underneath and still sits at the stock ride height. Newer 31x10.50-15 Goodyear radials are fitted to the original wheels, which also feature a sporty red pinstripe.
