Get Your Hands on This First-Gen Ford Raptor Before it’s too Late!

With the all-new Ford F-150 Raptor soon going on sale to the public, this may be the best time to snatch a well-loved first-gen Raptor before prices spike!

We’ve already seen videos of hundreds of 2017 Ford F-150 Raptors lined up and ready to ship to dealerships, which means that the previous-gen trucks may drop in price temporarily, at least until the used market starts to dry due to low prices; giving way to a new supply-and-demand cycle. There’s no doubt that low-mileage and well-cared for first-gen trucks will command big bucks in decades to come.

Take this gorgeous blue example for sale by Texas Direct on eBay. According to the description, this beasty-looking truck has only been driven 39,780 miles since it rolled-off the factory, and although it’s a two-owner truck, it looks to have been pampered every day of its life. The aftermarket wheels and tires add a touch of customization without making it look over-the-top, and the bumpers and cold-air intake allow it to perform just a tad better than stock on and off the road.

The description highlights some desirable factory options such as navigation, sunroof, heated seats and remote start. Needless to say, these options in addition to the mighty 6.2 liter V8 are exactly the doctor ordered!

At little over $40k for this blue monster—are you tempted?
