This 1990 Ford F-250 XLT Lariat is about being a stylish classic that's still exceptionally useful. After all, it's an extra-duty F-250 with a long bed, gooseneck, dual tanks, overdrive transmission, and the big 460 V8 with fuel injection. So we bet you're already thinking about all the useful ways to enjoy this square body Ford.
The XLT Lariat package means you're getting a premium pickup. That feeling is highlighted by the deep maroon paint that was resprayed later in life to still have a nice luster today. And you even have bright chrome bumpers and the full-length white/silver pinstripes that show off the good panels. But the real appeal here is how you get a classic truck with a true work-ready attitude. There's full liner paint in the long bed and robust diamond plate bed rail caps. Plus, 8-lug wheels, large tow mirrors, an added trailer brake control, and the F-250 chassis are terrific for hauling. That's why you not only have the rear tow hitch but also a gooseneck with a wiring harness in the bed. So you can enjoy this truck for its clean and vintage style, but from day one, you also know that your classic has far more capabilities than many of those glam pickups out there.
The interior is where you can really appreciate the premium side of the XLT Lariat trim. This is loaded with features you don't get on many other classics, like power windows, power locks, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. There are provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing,) but the side vent windows and sliding rear glass already do a nice job of moving air through the cab. If you want to get extra fancy, it's not difficult to get new cloth covers for the seat. But you'll already appreciate the good contouring and fold-down armrest. It makes this one long-haul comfortable. So do features like the full gauges, dual fuel tanks, and cruise control.
Under the hood is one of the most desirable options around: Ford's 460 cubic-inch V8. This is a later model for the famous big block, and so you are at the intersection of cool history and modern fuel-injected versatility. It's unknown if the odometer reflects the actual mileage, but that seems less important thanks to proper care and investments to keep it strong. The V8 was even removed and resealed. Part of the long haul comfort also means going farther with the ease of a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. There's even a camper-friendly rear sway bar. Add in power steering and power brakes with discs up front, and this is a very useful F-250.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an F-250 that looks good but you can tell rather be working than be fancy. So it makes for an extra-duty pickup with an extra-honest attitude. So if you want a true classic truck that still gets the job done, call today!
