Car description

A late-model pickup on a collector car dealer's site? Look again. This 1992 Ford F-150 is more than just a pickup, it's an ultra-rare Flare Side 4x4, of which they built, oh, about a handful in F-150 terms. It's also beautifully refinished, built for serious off-roading, and packs a torquey fuel-injected 5.0 and a 5-speed, making it very fun to drive indeed. No, this isn't some garden-variety pickup, this is something you will never get another chance to own.The color is called Electric Red, and it was on the Ford color pallet in 1992, yet looks shockingly contemporary today. You'd figure that a truck like this would have been worked to death, bashed up off-roading, and left for dead, but you'd be wrong. This truck has been a cherished fair-weather toy from the day it was new and as a result, never had to earn a living by carrying heavy, sharp, destructive stuff in its bed. It was repainted about two years ago, so the finish looks great, very much like the original paint might have looked in 1992. Most of the trim is original, including the chrome bumpers, and a billet grille takes the place of the original plastic piece, giving this Ford a unique look that doesn't disguise what it is. It's also got a set of color-matched steps that are probably mandatory on something this tall and a spray-in bedliner to protect that unusual Flare Side bed.The interior is working-class truck, circa 1992, but that doesn't mean it isn't comfortable. The wide bench seat wears a new reupholstered vinyl black seat cover that's durable and clean-looking, but it appears that the rest of the interior is original. The dash and door panels are in excellent condition and aren't cracked and dry, more evidence that this truck never lived outdoors where the sun could cook it. If you look closely at the instrument panel (with a full array of gauges, including a tach) you might note that this truck was originally a column-shifted automatic, but during the drive-train rebuild a few years ago, it was converted to a factory-style 5-speed manual, complete with OEM shifter and boot. Nice, right? It also includes such niceties as power windows and locks, cruise control, and ice cold A/C, making it a truck you could easily drive every day. There's also a newer AM/FM/CD head unit for entertainment and a sliding rear window for ventilation when it's not quite hot enough to need the A/C.The aforementioned 5.0 liter V8 was rebuilt about 10,000 miles ago and runs like you'd expect a legend to run. It still carries the truck-exclusive long-runner intake manifold, which is perfect for building torque and all the factory controls are in place, so it starts quickly, idles well, and pulls hard through all the gears. It's quite clean under the hood, although they avoided the temptation to upgrade and over-accessorize, keeping an OEM look. The transplanted 5-speed shifts cleanly and the 4x4 system is still fully operational with pushbutton controls on the dash. A single exhaust with Flowmaster muffler offers a nice rumble and with that suspension lift, it looks ready for action. However, one glance underneath and you'll see that this truck clearly hasn't spent any time in the mud and dirt, because it's extremely clean. Factory axles, power steering and front disc brakes, and a heavy-duty steering stabilizer round out the list of hardware. And for that butch look, a set of black bead-lock wheels from Fuel and some 35x12.50-15 Dick Cepek tires totally fill the fenders.Go ahead and try to find another one, let alone one this nice. Great colors, great upgrades, great options, this Flare Side really delivers. These trucks are shooting up in value by the day, don't miss your chance! Call today!
