Pictures coming up tomorrow (Friday March 6, 2009)

The truck is a 1997 Ford F-150 2WD Regular Cab 8’ Bed, with a new (10K miles) 4.2L V6, and automatic overdrive transmission. The truck has 140K miles, but only 10K miles on the new engine.

AM/FM cassette stereo, vinyl interior, rubberized floor, Timbren suspension system front and rear, rugged tires, plastic bed liner, and Bosch icon wiper blades.

Oil changed every 1,500-2,000 miles or every 6 months since new engine. Transmission fluid changed 6K miles ago, rear differential fluid changed 6K miles ago. New alternator installed July 2008. Front brakes replaced 12K miles ago, which included pads, calipers, rotors, and brake system flush and refill with new fluid. Fram Airhog reusable air filter installed 4K miles ago, comes with two cleaning kits. New spark plugs and wires installed 12K miles ago.

The truck recently passed inspection in October of 2008.

I consistently see 15-16 miles to the gallon around town, with anywhere from 18-22 mpg on the highway. I am selling it because I purchased a new truck.

I am the second owner, and I have had it for three years now. It has been in no accidents of any kind, and driven conservatively. It is well maintained; I did all of the regular maintenance myself. This truck runs and drives fine, I have fixed every problem immediately, and there are no current mechanical problems with the truck. There is one minor problem with the turn signal switch, but it can be replaced for about $60. I will show you when you test drive it, the turn signals work fine though. I have faith in this truck and I would drive it anywhere in the country without hesitation. There is some body rust above the passenger rear wheel well, and a little bit coming through at the front of the box on the same side. There is also some frame rust, on average with trucks this age that I have seen.

The engine was replaced in August of 2007, 4 months after I bought it, due to a leaking head gasket, which caused hydro-lock by filling the #2 cylinder with coolant one night. When I started it the next morning, it broke a connecting rod and I had to have the engine replaced.


Asking price of $3,695.

The interested buyer had financial issues, so the truck is still available for purchase.

This is a very good work truck, and it has served me well. I have upgraded, and this one needs to go. Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks.
