Generic: 1991 Ford F-150

Ask any American kid to draw a picture of a truck, and this is what you get.  It isn’t some monster truck built to climb sand dunes or a stanced Japanese street machine — no.  It is, simply a truck.  Find this 1991 Ford F-150 here on eBay offered for $5,890 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Canton, GA.

People ask the question — where did all the small pickup trucks go?  Rangers/HiLux/Luv are long gone from the map of available pickups and the answer is simple — this was a better truck for about the same amount of cash.  In 1991 the F-150 cost about $11,300 or you could get a new Ranger for $11,448.  For about the same amount of money you got more truck. Gas was cheap and the math was simple.

Under the hood was a 4.9 liter inline-6 that made 145 horsepower with fuel injection, but you could get 15mpg city and 19mpg highway if you ordered manual gearbox.  This one appears to have an automatic, which will drop those fuel economy numbers, but makes driving less of a chore.  You didn’t buy a truck to row your own gears — you bought it to haul your gear.
