If you're a truck person, this 1988 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 4x4 will excite you. You have a nearly indescribable 4.9-liter motor, the control of a four-speed, dual fuel tanks, versatile accessories, and four-wheel drive ability. And for those who just want a cruiser, features like fuel injection and cold A/C make this a terrific fit, too.
The vivid red looks good on the sturdy slab sides of this F-150. Clean wheels, bright bumpers, premium XLT trim, and upgraded large dual exhaust tips .....
make for some nice flair. But nothing about this truck makes you think it's not all about being ready to get the job done. There's a fully lined bed, wide towing mirrors, a rear step bumper, and a proper trailer hitch. And those new tires are ready to take you everywhere, from the campsite to the boat ramp.
The interior shows good care and investments in the right truck fundamentals. It's clean and complete, right down to the working dome light. It's unknown if the odometer represents the full actual mileage, but the overall impression inside is the kind of truck with some use but far from a workhorse lifestyle. Part of this comfy feeling also comes from the level of amenities on an upper-level XLT Lariat. You have excellent features like cold-blowing air conditioning, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, a sliding rear window, cruise control, and a fold-down center armrest. The stock steering wheel is on a tilt column to give a clear view of the full factory gauges, including the handy tach.
The 4.9-liter inline-six is a legendary motor. They have the durability reputation of diesel, and a later model like this with fuel injection means this robust motor was built to be powerful and consistent from day one. The four-speed manual transmission is great for all-around control. It works great with the four-wheel drive if you need immediate torque from the low first, or maybe you just need extra power on the streets from a quick downshift. Power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and modern tires make it a comfortable cruiser.
This is the ideal mix of rugged and comfortable. It's the cool classic that still knows how to earn its keep. So at a price like this, you already know you'll have to act fast to take this one home. Call now!
