Lot 239 - 1985 Ford F-150 V8 XL Pick-up
|Estimate||£12,000 - £17,000|
The F-Series has been in production since 1948, with each generation catering for America’s ever evolving demands. It is the world's best-selling truck, and it regularly continues to maintain its status as the US best -selling vehicle.
This 1985 Canadian import was imported into the UK in 2019 after spending the previous few years in its home country, where it was showcased at historic car shows. Powered by a small block 5.8-litre V8 engine, the truck has retained many of its unique features but has been enhanced by a new paint job and some minor cosmetic improvements.
Imported into the UK in 2019, the truck has recently had circa £5,000 spent on an extensive repaint. Believed to have been originally fitted with a small block 4.9-litre engine from new, this example has been upgraded to accommodate a 5.8-litre V8 which obviously offers more power with better parts availability. The chassis number confirms that the truck was built in Canada, and the show plaques affixed on the top of the front valance of the engine bay confirm that it spent its previous life attending shows in Nova Scotia. Offered with a MoT valid until June 2023 and various sundry invoices. A lovely example of the ever popular F-150 Ford Pick-up truck.
