Ford F-150

Do low miles make up for the banana yellow hue on this Ford F-150? Tell us how much you’d pay for it.

Buying and selling used trucks is generally an interesting endeavor. Not quite like what you see on those TV shows where “masterful” negotiators always wring out killer deals for themselves. No, selling a used truck is often a humbling experience, especially if you love said truck. As sellers, we tend to value things higher than what people will actually pay for them. But for the realist, there are ways to figure out a fair value for an old pickup truck. For Reddit user u/MJBTV, that means asking the internet what they think their Ford F-150 is worth.

So it might not be as scientific as using Kelley Blue Book or NADA. But it makes a lot of sense, seeing as how these are folks that might actually be/have been in the used truck market. So the OP provides a picture of his banana yellow Ford F-150, along with a brief description. “It’s a 1990 Ford F-150 Lariat XLT. Lowered with power everything, A/C, and 69,000 Miles It has the 4.9L I6.”

Despite the low mileage, these later trucks haven’t enjoyed the climbing values of their older brethren. Plus, color might play into the price in this case, as Repo523 points out. “After owning two of these and judging by the condition this is in, but also the color. I’d say $2250.” Other’s estimates are pretty close to that as well. “I’m not a sales expert. But with just the I6 and regular cab, about $1,500 to $2,000. Although it also does depend on your area,” adds ZenixN.

All of which are pretty fair assessments. From what we’ve seen, it’s pretty tough to pin an exact price on this Ford F-150, because yellow is certainly an acquired taste. But we’d say $3,000 is probably the ceiling. More realistically, $2,000 to $2,500 is probably a good price. But we want to know what you think! Comment below and tell us how much you’d pay for this low-mile pickup.
