89 f 150 clutch

My son is looking to buy a 89 f 150 with a 300 -6 cylinder 4 speed in floor.
I went and drove it and the clutch is fully engaged about 1/2 inch off the floor , very hard to drive I kept choking it down. I know it is a hydraulic clutch so there is no adjustment , so what could be wrong with it? or was it suppose to be like that, I am used to driving mustangs so that's what I am used to.

Sounds like it needs a clutch.

It could be air in the hydraulic system, or there's a possibility that the firewall is cracked and flexing. Also check to see if the pedal is returning all the way to the stop at the top of its travel when released. A worn out clutch will slip when power is applied with clutch engaged.

I read it like youre saying it wont release until youre right down to the floor and even then its still *******... That is why I say that.

Could be wrong though too.
