1994 Ford F-150 XLT Additional Info:

For your consideration, is my fine old friend I thought I would ride with to the grave. Another path has been chosen for it, however, and it is my job to see that it gets into good, loving hands. I’ve been faithful and kind to this truck, in the nearly seven years I have owned it. Though I’ve asked it to work hard for me, this truck has been nothing but a good friend to me. Matter of fact, it’s probably been the best truck I ever owned. This truck has always lived in Hampton Roads, Virginia (and it was built here too, about 6 miles from my home).


-1994 Ford F150 Supercab XLT 2WD (6.5' box)

-302CID (5.0) Windsor V8: The engine was rebuilt in July of 2013, and has about 67K on it. It is bored .030” and fitted with Hypereutectic pistons, stock connecting rods and an EAGLE cast steel crankshaft, SUMMIT race-spec tri-metal rod and mains bearings, Melling oil pump, American SUMMIT true-roller timing chain with billet sprockets, roller lifters, and a mild RV cam. It uses no oil, and is VERY strong.

-4R70W Transmission: 2.84:1 first gear and wide ratio with external cooler and filter, deep American-Made LPW finned aluminum pan, with recent service to include NEW heavy-duty furnace-brazed American-Made Precision Of New Hampton torque converter (1800rpm stall) SFI approved Pioneer flexplate, always meticulously changed fluids and filters, brand new EPC Solenoid, Dual Shift Solenoid, TCC Solenoid, Billet aluminum 2-3 accumulator piston, 2-3 accumulator spring, deep filter, and Motorcraft Mercon V fluid always used.

-8.8” Ford rear differential: With 31 spline forged Motive Gear axles, an EATON-DETROIT “Tru-Trac” Locker, and G2 finned aluminum cover. (Photo shows 3.55:1 Ford gear, which has now been replaced by a new G2 3.73:1 gearset)

-Braided stainless steel front brake lines, and rigid stainless steel rear brake lines.

-The electrical wiring harness has not been modified, hacked into, or any other such problematic nonsense, and is in good order. There are no "backwoods modifications" to this truck, anywhere on it.

-Pioneer CD player with USB and Bluetooth capability, remote, and aftermarket speakers, and preamp outputs.

-Within the last year the truck has received a new battery, new Mass Airflow Sensor and housing (MAF), new Idle Air Control Valve (IAC), new Distributor, cap, rotor, plugs and wires, new Ignition Control Module, New Coil, New ECM (computer), new starter, new water pump, and new front brakes and an O2 sensor.

-Within the last two years I have replaced the tires with Dick Cepek Fun Country 32/11.50/15 extreme off-road tires (80%+ of tread remaining), and had the PSOM calibrated.

-Within the last few years, I have replaced the suspension and all related components. It sits on a SUPERLIFT SUSPENSION 6” lift, RS5000 Rancho Shocks, heavy duty rear leaf springs with levelling kit (no “Carolina Squatter”, here), heavy-duty SUPERLIFT SUSPENSION SUPERRUNNER steering linkage with a true Idler-arm for better handling, dropped pitman arm, new radius arms, new bushings, axle and wheel bearings, seals and dust caps, ACM Transmission mount, center support bearing, all U-joints, steering gearbox, and the like.

-Within this time, it has also gotten a new alternator, a new windshield, belts, hoses, rotors and drums, calipers and hardware, extreme-duty solid BRONCO GRAVEYARD engine mounts, door window gaskets, new US-Made carpet (Bronco Graveyard), floor mats, Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), oil pressure sending unit, water temp sensor, injector O-rings, etc., and all receipts.

-The exhaust is comprised of the stock exhaust manifolds in good order and with new gaskets, and a 3” single exhaust all the way back from the Y-pipe joint. It has a 3” 304SS CATCO High Flow Catalytic Converter, 3” 409SS tubing and a 3” 409SS Magnaflow muffler. Exhaust sound is moderate and civilized, but growls when you get on it.

-The AC blows ice cubes, and the heat will melt the artic. Power windows, door locks and cruise control all work.

Being 2WD, this is no mudding truck, but it can tackle a fire road or soft ground with relative ease thanks to the locker, and it handles well for what it is. It can wade through 18" of water and not come in contact with anything important. It tracks nicely, camps nicely with the locking camper shell and sliding windows and screens, will pull or haul a decent load (bed protection to include the factory Ford bed-liner which looks like it has never been out of the truck, and the bed (and floor) pans are nearly as clean as the day it rolled off the assembly line. A “Big Mat” rubber mat further cushions loads and keeps things from sliding around.) This truck has the factory tow package with 7 pin connector (and 4-pin plug in, for utility trailers) as well as an electronic trailer brake module. A full sized 32/11.50/15 spare sits under the bed, and has never touched asphalt.


-The transmission is showing its age, and will need to be further serviced or rebuilt at some point in the not-too-distant future. It has been meticulously maintained, but it’s worked hard. I changed fluids every 15K or so, during my ownership of it, and it has been perfect until recently. It shifts up and down nicely at part throttle, and the torque converter locks up, as it should, but under Wide Open Throttle, the engine just revs to the sky. When the truck was empty, the 1st to 2nd gear shift at WOT throttle used to "break your neck" [again; a very strong 302 mill] but I am out of time and money to dig any deeper into it.

-The driver’s seatbelt is lazy to return, but grabs every time when yanked on, and retracts, though better in the warmer months. I suspect it’s in need of adjustment or replacement soon.

-Occasionally, (only at cold start up; never while under way) the truck goes into test-mode on its own when it is cold, and will fast idle, flash 4 quick flashes (V8), and settle back down to a dead-steady idle. I never solved why this happens, and since it had no impact on drivability, I never gave it much concern.I mention it to be completely forthright.

-This truck has never been wrecked, and there is no frame damage, but it had a small fender bender in 2002 that dimpled the front bumper on the left side, and you will see it listed on a vehicle report. The front bumper has since been replaced, and the left frame horn was not damaged.

-Amazingly, the paint is original, and reasonably shiny. (Let's hear it for white paint jobs with no clear coat. They certainly last the longest.) At the minimum, it’s quite respectable for an antique truck, with a couple small rattle can touch-ups. There are the typical small rust spots, but this truck is remarkably solid and straight.

-The front fuel tank looks like it needs a new pump gasket for the external flange ring. When over-filled, it weeps at the top. It's an easy fix, but I'm done fiddling.

-The title lists this truck as "not actual mileage". The mileage you see on the dash is MOST CERTAINLY the actual mileage, but the guy I bought the truck from (a man I have known for many years) wrote in tenths of a mile (which you are not supposed to do) when he transferred the title into his name, and the DMV clerk made an issue of it, and said he could either register it that day as “not actual mileage” or wait for another title to be issued to the seller, and he could come back in a few weeks to register it then. Silly, but it is what it is.


-I am regretful that I must say goodbye to the best truck ever manufactured by any company on earth, but I have too many projects, too little time and money, and am in transition.

-If you are mechanically inclined and want a great work, camp or hunting truck, you probably are not going to find one better than this for the price. I shudder to think what I have invested in this truck, and I don’t have the intestinal fortitude to add up all the receipts (which I have, as well as the service book I kept) and I offer it at a fraction of that today, with no reserve. I know the transmission will need to be sorted out further, which is why the price is so low. Again—I never thought I’d sell this truck, and I always bought the best I could afford for it.

-Bid to own it, folks, and PLEASE—give it a good life. It deserves that. I firmly believe that this truck will get you back home, wherever you live, under its own steam, if you care to drive it to it’s new residence. I can arrange to be available to meet you so that you can get the truck and title, but request that you make provisions to take possession within 30 days of the auction's close. I am happy to meet a vehicle transport operator if you choose to have it delivered, but you will need to make the arrangements. I will also consider driving it to you for 40 cents per mile if your destination is within 2 hours of me.

Virginia Residents: This truck has a current inspection that is good until the end of March 2020, though now that it is an antique, it no longer needs to be inspected if registered as an Antique. The same may go for many other states, but check local regulations to be sure. Regardless the state you live in, go on-line to your DMV website, and pay 5 bucks or so for a vehicle transfer tag prior to driving away.

Because this is an antique, and in spite of the fact that I have invested a tremendous amount of time and money into keeping it in good form, no warranties are expressed or implied, and the vehicle is being sold "AS-IS".

Thank you for your interest, and please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I will gladly send additional photos or provide supplemental information, at your request.

Serious bidders only, please!
