This California Blue Plate 1985 Ford F-150 XL 4x4 finished in iconic Desert Tan and Light Desert Tan, with tan cloth interior was sold new at Gilroy Motor Co in Gilroy California and remained there until our purchase this year. This well optioned One Family Owned F-150 was built in November of 1984, this F-150 is loaded with options but some that stand out include quad shocks, power window and locks, tilt steering, sliding rear window, Air Conditioning, cruise control, premium AM/FM Cassette Radio and heavy duty suspension.

This F150 is powered by its original “big” 351 Windsor CI V8 engine backed by a C6 Automatic transmission. A new exhaust was fit last month to pass smog. The truck runs and drives as it would new. The TTB Dana 44 front axle and Ford 9” rear are fit with 3.50 gears. All brakes and the power steering system have been serviced and are ready to go. The A/C works as it should. All original wheels and dog dish caps have been fit with brand new 31x10.5 A/T Tires.

The body is great shape overall, all panels are original and rust free. The XL still wears its paint meter verified original paint and shows well for its age but does have some small scratches, chips, dings ect as you would expect with an original truck. Lights work ect. The underside is also rust free and in amazing condition. Look at the floor photos!.

The factory tan cloth interior is in great shape. The seat shows very well. The floormat is all original and shows very well for its age, all trim and plastics are in good shape. The dash has a new dash cap. The AM/FM Cassette Radio works as it should, as does all instrumentation, power windows, locks and warning lights.

This is the perfect usable classic driver, it runs and drives like it should and turns heads everywhere it goes! California Blue Plates go with the truck!
