Topic tags/keywords: question

I know this has nothing to do with woodworking other than I would use it in my woodworking and I am not a car person. I am going to an auction on Sunday and they have the following truck for sale. I went and looked at it today and it is in excellent condition. No rust, no dents and just a few minor scratches.

1990 Ford F150 XLT Lariat with 31,600 actual miles on it!
Regular Cab Long Bed
V8, 5.0 Liter
2WD
Automatic, 3 Speed, W/ Overdrive
AC
Dual Gas Tanks
Power Steering
Power Windows
Tilt Wheel
Cruise Control
AM/FM/Cassette
Sliding Rear Window
Bed Liner

An old man bought it new in 1990 and died in 1992. The truck has always been serviced all these years and used to run errands but was parked in a garage when not being used. What would you give for it????

we can see that the truck was driven for short errands and so that is good as it got the oil and lubrication spread around…even though it is short in mileage, its still 18 years old…so hope for low bids and i would stay under 3500…it sounds like a very nice truck…hope you win …of coarse if you do , we need pictures with the bed full of wood of coarse…as this is a wood working site…or a new tool in the back…lol…grizz

If you buy it, check to see if the cruise control has been changed out by the Ford dealer. My F150’s cruise control shorted out and burnt my house to the ground. A lot of folks lost their homes and a few their life.

Don’t forget Canadian vehicles have the added option that they get better gas mileage because they loose weight over the years. Less weight, more mpg (or km). This doesn’t help the value though. Yeah, that’s right, rusting out only has a small silver lining… ;0)
Seriously, you are going to need new tires (they do rot with no use), battery, oil + filters (oil, gas, air etc), tune-up and the occasional surprise that’ll set you back some. Take that into account and bid accordingly. Good luck and I am a GM too but this sounds pretty fail. Jack

$1000 – $1500 It’s only 2 wheel drive.

If it was a 4×4 then maybe $3500 – $4500.

Go to Kelley Blue Book online- new and used car price guide. Google it. That’s what the seller is probably using too. :) It’s free to use.

Are you sure? Did you check? My daughter’s car is a 1999 and it listed on Kelley’s blue book. Cost me a whopping 1100 bucks to purchase that beauty this spring.

I would say $2000-$2500. If it had 4×4, maybe $3500 if it had heavy duty tires in good shape.

If it were a GMC, and older, I’d be more interested. Ha.

Still going….....1972 GMC Sierra in “Ochra color”, and I wouldn’t trade it for a new one.

Good luck,
