Back in the day, trucks didn’t hold up as well as they do today for a lot of reasons. Mostly it was because if someone bought a truck in the ’80s, they probably needed it for work. Today people buy trucks who will never put a single item in the bed. When we see mostly original classic trucks like this 1984 Ford F-150 XLT, we always wonder how the trucks made it through their lives in such good condition.
The listing says that the truck is mostly original and has 82,415 miles on the odometer. The engine under the hood is a venerable 302 cubic-inch Ford small-block paired up with an automatic transmission. The truck is XLT trim and is fitted with 4WD and factory AC. The interior is in excellent condition and is in the same light blue and white color as the exterior of the truck.
The owner says he is only the second owner of the truck, noting that the 4WD works and the AC blows cold. The truck is from the south, so rust shouldn’t be an issue. The only things that aren’t original to the truck include a Rough Country 4-inch lift, American Racing wheels, and BFG KO2 all-terrain tires.
The 1984 Ford F-150 is a short-bed variety with a single cab. Those not liking the aftermarket wheels and tires will be glad to hear the original wheels and tires go with the truck. The truck is on eBay, and it’s not an auction. It’s listed as a Buy it Now with a price of $18,500 and a make an offer option. Clean, classic trucks like this are increasingly hard to find, and this is a much better deal than the 1997 Ford F-250 we talked about last week where the seller wanted over $47,000.
