In 1987, the F150 received the first major cosmetic update it had seen since 1980! The change was well received, and “bricknose” Fords are still sought after today by enthusiasts. This 1989 has seen ample care and maintenance, and is an extremely well-preserved example.
Not only is this bricknose beauty an XLT Lariat (top of the line!) but it is a largely original, low-mileage, clean truck. Yes, it really does have 44,000 actual miles! It comes with lots of documents, including the original window sticker. This truck is gorgeous and near-mint inside and out. The paint is slick, clean, and there's no rust or body damage to be found. Some tasteful exterior upgrades have been made, namely a set of chrome wheels, a fiberglass body-color sun visor, and a spray-in bedliner with a rubber bed mat. The additions to the bed have surely helped keep the clean exterior look of this truck!
The interior of this truck is almost unbelievable; sitting in it feels like you've stepped into a Ford Trucks brochure from 1989! The interior is truly in near-mint condition with no wear on any parts. If the interior condition of this truck doesn't support the mileage claim, I don't know what could! The only non-original pieces are a Kenwood radio and a protective steering wheel cover. Both of these additions could be easily reversed, but in the eyes of some are a welcome extra. The bench seat looks as if it has never been sat in, and the gorgeous red interior provides a stark but tasteful contrast with the exterior gray.
This truck runs and drives great with no ailments or unusual tendencies. The engine bay is clean, complete, and unmolested in true factory configuration. This would be the perfect truck to use as a preserved daily driver, or else a weekend truck used for light hauling and the occasional cruise-in. It sounds like it should, and drives like it did when new.
Overall, this F150 is in fantastic condition and a discerning buyer would be hard pressed to find a better example. If you're not a fan of any of the tasteful and period-correct modifications, they could be easily reverted to give this truck a beautiful 100% stock appearance. Whatever your intent is, if it involves a 1989 F150, look no further!
