Not quite a collectable yet, but if you need a rugged, reliable daily driver that can still put in a hard day''s work and look great doing it, this 1986 Ford F150 XLT might be a smart choice. The two-tone paint job still looks smart, and it features a host of comfort and convenience options that make it a pleasure to drive every day. The newer two-tone black and silver paint job subtracts years from this truck''s age, making it look just a few years old rather than a quarter-century. Park this truck next to one of its kin from the same period, and you''ll probably see the difference in a big way, but even amongst newer hardware it sparkles. The bed features aftermarket rails that look sporty and help to secure loads, as well as a drop-in bed liner. Lots of bright trim accents the two-tone paint, and it''s all in good shape, including the stainless steel tailgate insert. The gorgeous red XLT interior is very well preserved, with original upholstery on the bench seat, factory door panels, and even 1986-vintage carpets underfoot. The dash pad is its original and so is the AM/FM/Cassette unit. Options include A/C, cruise control, power windows and locks, and a leather-wrapped tilt wheel, so this is one pickup truck that feels decidedly un-truck-like on the road. Faux woodgrain on the dash lends an upscale feel and Ford gave its truck buyers a comprehensive array of instruments, all laid out in neat square frames. With an interior like this, can''t you see yourself enjoying the road on a nice day in your new Ford? Ford''s rugged, reliable, and eminently famous 5.0 liter V8 lives under that new hood, and while it doesn''t have the same high-performance personality as its Mustang cousins, it remains a torque factory that moves the pickup with authority. Thanks to that long-runner intake, it hauls loads without straining and still hustles with urgency when the need arises. Someone took exceptional care of it, too-just look how clean it is! All the original equipment is there, including things like the AIR injection pump, factory A/C compressor, and those two long intake pipes running to the throttle body. It''s linked to a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, so it''s reasonably thrifty on the highway. The chassis is clean and there are no signs of hauling. 15-inch wheels wear clever hubcaps that replicate factory alloy wheels and 235/75/15 Kelly radials. Too nice to be a simple work truck, and perhaps someday these trucks will capture collectors'' hearts. In the meantime, you can enjoy a seriously nice truck for not a lot of cash. Call today!
