If she were a short bed, I'd throw in a bid...

I have no use for a short bed truck. I need to put stuff in there and not make two trips.

It lost me with the red interior otherwise that would be a great truck.

That thing looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. I too am not a fan of short bed trucks. I owned one but after owning a long bed it's unlikely I'll ever own another.

I have 2 long beds now. Gray and a red interior. Im too cheap to pass up a good deal based on a color, motor,trans or 4x4. My only "have to have" is an 8 footer and I'm negotiable on the extended cab. I prefer the OBS.

That is cool enough that the red interior barely bothers me, and I'm not a fan or red interior. I think the red looks better in these trucks than the 92+. I'm pretty sure no one would have complained if they didn't make blue or red interior and just had gray and tan.

My pickup interior is blue and I have or have owed a few tan (Eddie Bauer) interiors. Iím also good with gray but I canít deal with red.

The underside & engine compartment show it earned its' pay for every one of the 70K miles "odometer last recorded 2012".

Which says it had a problem, got parked, then resuscitated & detailed.

Body is in good shape, undercarriage looks like it was rode hard and put away wet. Probably a $3-4000 truck around here if it runs decent.

I guess I'm the only one who likes the red interior...

I like clean short beds, I like clean long beds. I like clean red interior, I like clean grey interior.

Ain't this the truth? Condition is everything on vehicles this old.

Still doesn't make like red interiors but I could live with it. I'd take an E4OD and 4.10 gears, any day, as a first priority.

Red wouldn't be my first choice, but I don't hate it.

Not sure what part you guys are referring to? Looks dusty, but for a 31 yr old truck I'll take it. The frame and springs still appear to have the factory black on it. It does not look like a used car lot paint job underneath. Is it really worth north of $8K? Likely not, but if you really want a time capsule it's not that far out of the ballpark. My guess it was a garage find, left by someone that passed away.

BTW, I really like my red/red '95 F150. Classy in my eyes. I like the grey interior better on a grey truck(like my previous '87 F150 that was a twin to the one posted). If I was in the market for a real gas hog, this would do it. You would NEVER be able to feed this truck daily!! My '96 F350/460/E4od/4.10 got 10 mpg on good days. The 3.55's might help with no OD, but still not going to get north of 8 mpg being a 4wd.
