This Could be the Cleanest & Most Original 1985 Ford F-150 We’ve Ever Seen!

By -


If you’re in the market for a vintage Ford F-150 pickup truck, and you have a rather sizable budget, then this could literally be one of the cleanest and most original used trucks we’ve ever come across. No joke.

Our friends at Hemmings, have recently listed this incredibly charming 1985 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat, which according to the ad description, it has only seen a total of 36,187 miles in its 31 year lifetime. Just wrap your mind around that, this beauty has been babied through-and-through its entire life. On top of that, this truck belonged to one North Carolina owner only from December 11, 1984 until July of 2016, when he sold it due to his age and poor health.


If that’s not enough to make you want to drop a boat-load of cash and put this baby in your own garage, this XLT Lariat-trimmed truck features the largest engine available in a 1985 F-150, the original 351ci 5.8-liter 4-barrel V8 with the original automatic transmission. According to the seller’s description, this truck has never seen rain, and it still sports the original tires it rolled off the assembly line with. Incredible.


As you may know, us here at, see, drive and write about a lot of trucks. New trucks, old trucks, nice trucks, shitty trucks, and believe me when I tell you that this is one of the cleanest and most original trucks I’ve come across on the internet. If I had the bucks, I’d take this baby home!

What about you?
