Classic Car Overview

Big jobs need big trucks, and it was right about the time that this 1989 Ford F150 XLT Lariat Extended Cab was built that these trucks really started to take off and dominate the market for Ford. With 5.8L V8 Ford Tough power, a stylish, fleetside short bed thatll carry anything under the white camper cover, and a gorgeous extended cab interior thats in great condition, this affordable, low-mileage Ford truck is on the cusp of modern classic status and can be driven and enjoyed across the country with nary a worry. The big, squared-off style of the late-80s and early-90s F-series trucks (aka the Bricks) works particularly well with bright, two-tone paint. Crisply rendered and very butch, this rig looks like it could pull an ocean liner out of the water, or pull up to the valet at a Michelin Star rated restaurant and not be escorted to the loading dock for deliveries. Thats factory-correct and original Code H Bright Regatta Blue Metallic and Code 9M White paint on all-original Henry Ford steel, and its been extremely well maintained for being over 32 years old (yes, 32). Sure, it shows some signs of use and age, but were talking pretty minor stuff, and if were to believe that those miles are actual (and we do believe them to be) then the survivor-grade finish corroborates the claim that this truck has been babied since new. The iconic chrome grille, oversized mirrors, heavy-duty bumpers fore and aft, and even the camper shell add to the rugged feel, although youll ultimately discover that this pickup is pretty darned civilized. The bed has certainly been used but never abused, and its protected by a heavy-duty drop-in rubber liner on the floor and tailgate to limit any further scratches. It has lived its entire life in Texas with just four owners, all of whom took great care of the truck and because it lived down south and is barely broken-in mileage-wise, there are no critical structural issues to worry about underneath. Get in and put it to work! One look inside and any worries you may have about whether or not the 75K miles on the odometer are believed actual or not, should be immediately assuaged. Up front, blue cloth buckets flank a central console to make long-distance cruising a pleasure, and theres a bench seat out back that can carry two-to-three passengers in a pinch. The upholstery is in shockingly good condition and the big cab feels downright spacious, even for late-80s extended cab standards. Original carpets are still in awesome shape, as are the matching door panels, and for a hauler like this, youre going to want options: factory A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control thats managed on the steering wheel, dual fuel tanks, and a stock AM/FM/Cassette stereo in the dash. The XLT Lariat trim level brings woodgrain accents to the dash, a more stylish headliner and door panels, and eponymous badging on the expansive dash which is amazingly stress and crack free. Big, bright gauges offer a comprehensive view of the engines condition and with only 75,502 believed-actual miles, you folks familiar with these trucks understand that this one is just getting started. A giant rear window is a nice feature (even with the camper shell in place), giving the cab a fishbowl feel, and we have to say that climbing in this truck feels like coming home; who didnt have an F-Series back in the 80s -90s? Fords venerable 5.8L cubic inch V8 was built with trucks like this in mind. With modern EFI on top, its a torque factory and shrugs off the biggest loads you can put behind it. The big low-RPM engine isnt stressed, so it will run practically forever and despite a number of modifications available for these trucks, this one remains bone stock - from the twin intake snorkels to the intake manifold to the A/C compressor, and the only non-stock item we could find is the exhaust system underneath thats been upgraded to a stainless-steel system with glasspack-style mufflers. Its very tidy but not overly detailed under the hood, but just being pretty isnt this trucks only job, it can still put the work in too. Fords tough 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission offers good gearing to make the most of the small blocks torque curve and a tall overdrive that turns highway hauls into relaxing road trips. Southern living is most visible underneath, where its extremely clean and well-preserved, from the stock front suspension that features power steering and power front disc brakes to the gigantic rear end, which has factory highway-friendly gears inside. Its stanced high up on factory springs and shocks, and the big body sits on 15-inch wheels wrapped in 235/75/15 truck radials to finish off the rugged look. If youve priced these Brick F-series trucks lately, you know these pickups are really gaining steam. Still ready to work, still handsome, and still comfortable, it represents a great deal of practicality for not a lot of cash. Call today!
