Thinking of buying, any opinions on $ or....

So, I'm seriously thinking of getting this rig......would've wanted a Gen 6 or 7, but think this may suffice for my new DD instead of the current 05 I just bought:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1995-Ford-F...19.m1438.l2649

Any suggestions on a max price for this thing: I'm thinking I'm willing to pay around $8k-$10k and I still need to expend another $2k or so to fly out and drive it home.

Any specific questions I should ask?

I asked:
-bed size - 6'6"
-if he would drive it cross country and he said he wouldn't hesitate
-if it's the new AC, he didn't know () but said it blows ice cold now
-why it failed CA emissions in 16, he said he didn't know ()

Wonder if he's selling for a friend, or if it was a trade in.

Found the craigslist ad:
https://tucson.craigslist.org/cto/d/...581446833.html

He wants or is asking $10,900. I wonder if he'll sell lower if the auction goes lower than that...it's a no reserve, so supposedly, he would have to sell it for a lower price, but he can always cancel the auction before it ends.

Ken, I can tell you that Ford switched from the old style refrigerant(R-12) to the new style refrigerant(R-134A) beginning in 1994(model year).

It has 134a

I have a 95 Eddie Bauer F 150
They were only made for a half year in 95, half year in 96

They are rare, especially in good shape

That one has MAF, so it is the OBD2 set up, even though it don't have the adl to connect like the 96 models
It has a FR70W trans, which is what is in the mustangs. ( NOT the E4OD)

My truck is standard cab, 6 cyl, 5 spd, same mileage. I have been offered $12,000 by one of the dealers here

I would jump on that truck if I could have it for $8-10 K

Pretty fair bet it's worth more in Maine than AZ in that kinda condition, too...if resale is important to you.

I just bought a 95 f150 reg cab 8ft bed 4x4 xlt lariat 302 auto with 67450 miles crazy clean no rust Colorado tuck here in Wisconsin 45 miles from the house for $10200 out the door tax,title, lic. my kid bought a 92 f150 xlt lariat no rust with 92000 miles for $6000. so id say with over a 100k on the clock thated be a lil step on the price. there was a 96 here on CL a few weeks ago with 54000 miles on a new mexico truck and they wanted 15,000 for it but we missed it. I think an arazona truck with just over 100k on it should be in that $7500 range.

This is awesome info....thanks! I think I'm going to bid and with a $2000+ delivery quote, I think I'll go as high as $8-9....still thinking about it!

100% agree with you on the value from one coast to New England....it'll go for big dollars up here without any rust, but I wouldn't be interested in reselling it....it'll be my DD and I'd sell the 05.

GREAT info...thanks....LOVE this generation Ford...favorite is Gen 6, this is my next favorite......would the EXTRA cab make the difference in price? You said your 95 was reg cab, how about the 92 and 96......there are plenty of reg cabs with low mileage in good condition, but the reason I sold my old Dodge is because I wanted to take my boys/family with me if I need to tool around in my truck versus always HAVING to use my wife's.....it was hard to find these with exactly what I wanted....didn't want the 4 doors and/or the long bed because it was getting bigger than I wanted.

MAN, THANKS EVERYONE FOR HELPING ME MAKE THIS DECISION. I really, really like this rig....I think I'm going to bid on it now....wish me luck.

Here is a 96 xtra cab with 52k miles, BUT it's a 250 and has a long bed. She's a work truck!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-Ford-F...19.m1438.l2649


Auction is currently at 9500 with 3 days to go, will go over 10k for sure.

What I want is a smaller, older, comfortable, tool around truck that I can take my family in....even my KR was a beast and big, even with the 5.5 bed, the 4 doors and extra room inside made it huge.

The brodozer/diesel rice tax has gotten insane in the 92-96/7 ford world. Only things that seem to still be bought in good shape for $5-7k are the 150's. Talking 4x4's strictly...can still get some pretty sweet 2wd deals across the board. I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on your first two trucks at the $7k range.

If you're not looking for a winter war wagon to get through 3 feet of snow, a 2wd might actually be better.
