With collector interest and values in old pickups skyrocketing in recent years, we’re beginning to see more and more low-mile examples emerge for sale, for obvious reasons. Vintage pickups are bringing big bucks at auction these days, though we aren’t just talking about the 1970s and prior anymore – trucks from the 1990s are beginning to creep up in value, too. That will likely include this gorgeous 1994 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat currently listed for sale at Bring a Trailer, as it has just 17k miles on the clock and looks almost as good as new.
As one might expect from that low mileage total, this 1994 Ford F-150 is in simply stellar condition, inside and out. The four-wheel drive pickup was also a one-owner vehicle until this past April, when it was purchased by the selling dealer. On the outside, the truck sports a classic two-tone paint job consisting of Electric Red Clearcoat Metallic and Light Opal Clearcoat Metallic, though there are a few requisite rock chips here and there.
The interior is equally sanitary, finished in Ruby Red with a cloth bench seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, air conditioning, an AM/FM cassette stereo, and power windows and door locks. It may not seem like much by today’s lofty standards, but this was the epitome of pickup truck luxury just a few decades ago.
This particular F-150 isn’t powered by some V8, but rather, Ford’s 4.9L inline-six cylinder powerplant, which was origninally rated to produce a modest 150 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. That power flows to either the rear or all four wheels via a dual-range transfer case, four-speed automatic transmission, and limited slip differentials.
This well-equipped pickup had an original sticker price of $21,675 – a bit high given the era – but when the hammer falls on this particular auction, we imagine that it will sell for a bit more than that, at the very least.
