You can see this 1988 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 4x4 started life as a premium pickup, but it also has aged into a distinct patina. And while part of this one's legend is basically like a barn find, it has also been appropriately resurrected to have a solid fuel-injected V8, handy four-wheel drive, and loaded A/C interior.
This truck has a cool story. It was parked under a tree for about a dozen years - that's why the low odometer is believed to represent the total mileage. It just didn't run one day, and no one bothered to fix it. So nature started to try and reclaim this truck by eroding the paint into a genuine patina. But before this one faded away, it was resurrected. This Ford was finally given the respect it deserved in 2019 with a complete system restoration to properly return it to the road. But what wasn't touched was the well-aged style. And that means you have a strong heart beneath an authentic patina. Looking over the whole package, parking under a tree has advantages. The body missed out on more than a decade of dents and dings from a parking lot battle. And more than just a fabulous patina and a straight body, this F-150 has an appeal for being very useful. Full running boards, side handles, bed rails, tie-downs, tow mirrors, and a thick rubber bed mat make this 4x4 quite handy.
The XLT Lariat trim means a premium pickup, and the interior shows that off nicely. There are plenty of comfort features like power windows, power locks, a sliding rear window, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The velour seat has high-back comfort and a fold-down center console for personal space. It's built for long-haul comfort with a tilt steering column, full gauges, and cruise control. You may find some sun wear details, but you can tell this was sealed up nicely. So it feels like a loaded time capsule.
Under the hood is the optional 5.8-liter V8. Part of the resurrection of this pickup in 2019 means plenty invested in key areas like the fuel system for electronic fuel injection. The motor will feel entirely restored because you also have newer components like the radiator, hoses, belts, air cleaner, alternator, battery, A/C system, and more. So it fires up eagerly and loves to hit the road. More of the investment focused on the overall driving experience, including the exhaust, shocks, and tires. These join the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission for a leisurely cruising attitude. And don't forget, this matured pickup is also a proper 4x4 with a handy two-speed transfer case.
