Funny, when I bought my neigbor's F-150 , in the summer of 1997, it too was the color ( THE DRIVE TRAIN AND STYLING TO BOOT).
One of my rare 1968 Olds Toronados (which happens to be a W-34!), in red with black top and black insides!
All I can say to you is - take care of that truck!
I just want to say you got one super sweet F-150!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love that color combination! What motor tranny combo do you have?
My purple 1995 XL 4x4 has over 321,400 miles (yes it a 300 six with a 5 -speed).
I go tin July of 1997 with 29,000 then the last time it was (2008/09). Maine winters did this rig in.
Today I just use it as a yard truck(rusted frenders, broken rear springs, need gas and brake lines, ect). If gas did not go so crazy in price since 2003, I would of spent the money to keep her going. ANd the problem is , for the money I would spent to fix it up (well over $1800), i could get a nince '92-96 vintage F-150.
