1990 Ford F-150 XLT With Just 195 Miles Up For Auction

In recent years, even newer iterations of the iconic Ford F-150 have become sought-after collector items, with prices for older pickups continuing to rise. That includes F-150s from the 1990s, such as this low-mile 1994 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat, as well as this 1994 Ford F-150 XLT. Now, yet another pickup from this era has popped up for sale, but it’s a real doozy – this 1990 Ford F-150 XLT that has just 195 miles on the clock, which is set to be auctioned at Mecum’s Kissimmee sale next month.

That sub-200k odometer reading is incredibly low for pretty much any pickup, let alone one that’s over 30 years old at this point. Unfortunately, the auction listing doesn’t contain any information as to how this particular 1990 Ford F-150 XLT wound up sitting around unused for decades, but the condition that it’s in pretty much confirms that this ultra-low number is, in fact, legitimate.

In original, unrestored condition, there are simply no flaws to be found from what we can gather, as this truck’s two-tone gray paint looks it was just sprayed yesterday. The F-150 still rolls on its original aluminum wheels and even the original tires, though if the new owner intends to put any miles on it, they’ll obviously want to give it some fresh rubber. As for the interior, well, stepping inside is like taking a trip back in time, too.

On top of its immaculate condition, this 1990 Ford F-150 XLT is also well-equipped, with amenities including power steering and power brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and locks, and dual fuel tanks. Power comes from Ford’s venerable 5.0L V8, which is mated to an automatic transmission. Given how valuable these ’90s trucks have become in recent years, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this one sell for big money, but we’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out just how much.

    I am pretty sure that the wheels on this Ford F-150 are not aluminum. They look like they are styled steel with a stainless steel trim ring and plastic hubs. I am pretty sure that these wheels were standard for a XLT and the aluminum ones were an option.

      Was thinking the same thing! (from a 30 year Ford dealer management perspective). 1990 was when XLT meant “luxury”; I mean look at all that faux wood interior trim!
      IIRC “Eddie Bauer” was only available on the Bronco / Bronco II and the new to the world (Ranger based) Explorer.

      You’re 100% right Larry.

    Beautiful classic F150 truck! Love the old ones & love the new ones as well. It will always be iconic in my eyes.

    These are very good trucks. I own a 1992 version diesel IDI. No rust on it anywhere. Easy to repair. Things will break down on it, of course, being so old but all easy to repair. Even the diesel. One part N/A is the crucial fuel switch valve and that is where Ford soul’d us out.

    I was issued an ’89 for my company vehicle. I am not a Ford man at all, but, having said that, this truck was one of the nicer vehicles I have driven in my now 57 years of driving.l

    I own a 1990 XLT with about 120000 miles on it. It has the marks of a farm truck on it. It is used when I need a truck and it sets in a garage till next time. Needs new paint on the hood but other than that it’s in good shape. 4.9 in line 6 runs like a champ.
