America’s best-selling truck brings new, now classic style for 1988. New innovations and new features to what is now the standard for American trucks.

Ford trucks are known throughout the world, but no place better than the Northwest. Rain, snow, sleet, oh Hail, mountains to beaches, these rigs service their owners with a get her done attitude. Our Everett, WA rig is outfitted for luxury with its fully loaded XLT Lariat Package and big Winsor 351 V8 power. Her clean, clear, and unencumbered title is in our current Owner’s name and her CarFax is spotless, too!

Original and reported to be in quite nice condition, we have a two-tone brown exterior. She does show a time of work with a few flaws, some road chips and a crack in the tailgate reflective lens. Her chrome shows to be excellent, and keep in mind, as we get newer in model revisions, truck brightwork starts to diminish and ’88 Lariats indeed have it shiny. All glass is in excellent condition. Her bed does show a time or two of work and task completed, a dent on the bed cap, but no major ruffage. Factory rims and stock sized tires are refreshingly original.

Her interior is saddle tan cloth upholstery with vinyl accents and shows very, very nice with just a little wear. Ford’s XLT Lariat package is their fully loaded, truck to the luxury model. Power everything, including windows, locks, steering, brakes. Accessories like air conditioning, tilt wheel and tinted windows also follow the Lariat. Extended cab version boasts a rear storage compartment with folding bench seat.

Boasting the venerable 351 cid V8 powerplant, she’s a torque master. Reported to be all stock, her originality is displayed even in the factory air cleaner. Backing her V8 is a recently rebuilt and warranted C-6 automatic. All running gear is reported as original and factory stock. A testament to a tough built package are the manual hubs and lever-activated transfer case, often recognized as the ‘heavy duty’ version of a four-wheel drive truck. All reported to function proper and flawless.

Our objective review of this truck was performed by Lemon Squad. She was found to be in very good, original condition with just a few items of note. Foremost were the brakes, during the test drive, has a slight pulsation when activated. Second was a potential rear differential seep. Her original, untouched aspects show in slight underside oxidation as no major rust was reported. And slight wear was noted in the interior at the seat and headliner.

What we have here is an original, unmolested iconic American truck. This 8th generation F-series (3rd gen for the specific F-150) shows additions to interior luxury and improvements to exterior aerodynamics. Fast becoming classics, 80’s era trucks are simply a haven of improvements, starting with the rebirth of torque in one’s powerplant. Demand for American trucks has always been strong, but ‘new’ classics represent value and grand investment potential plus bring dependable, enjoyable function to the streets. Towing your Trailer Queen to events with our brown-eyed girl might invoke a little sibling rivalry, for our F will garner attention, that is Ford-sure.
