    i am looking to purchase a 95 f-150 4x4 xlt. regular cab 8ft bed 5.0 auto. all power with A/C 95k miles. very clean with no rot anywhere on the body. front and rear bumper has some rust around the bumper bolts. new oil pan,starter,brakes,tires. black/silver 2 tone. price is $6,200. this will be my first ford and wonder if this price is right and anything else i should be carefull of ? truck drove nice. started it up cold and there was no smoke. everything in the truck works except the oil pressure guage. i am hoping its the sending unit. if it turns out to be the guage i would put in an aftermarket one. i also want to put a 7 1/2 fisher on it.any info would be great. thanks

    On many of the newer Fords the oil pressure sending unit is really just a pressure switch. If oil pressure is above a minimum amount (about 10 psi), it makes the gauge read at mid scale. However, you can use a sending unit from earlier years and the gauge will read full scale.

    I had a 1995 F-150 with the 6 cyl. My oil pressure guage went south after 50,000 miles. I never got around to fixing it, but I think it was the sending unit. I had a Fisher 7'6" on it. It was a great plow truck. Sold it this summer to one of my employees for $3700 with the plow. It had 139,000 on the od. Probably could have gotten more if I had put it in the paper.

    I had a 95 150 5.0 5 speed 4x4 xl. it was a great truck always ran great, biggest problem I had was RUST!!!! not so much on the body but everything underneath. check the under carriage good gas tanks, brake lines etc. I see the oil pan has been changed another trait of the year:rolleyes: but over all should be a great truck.

    Had to have my oil pan replaced as well, I think around 60 - 70k. The pan looked fine except for a pinhole leak.

    I would think that $6,200 is too much for a 95 F-150, since right now I know where there is a 94 F-350 reg cab 4X4 xlt Powerstroke diesel, automatic with 105,000 miles for $7,000.

    But anyway, I have a 94 F-150 4X4, 300-6, 5spd with 152,000 miles, for our shop truck. There it just a little rust on the oil pan but no leaks or holes yet. Although I know that is one problem that Ford did have from 93-96 especially on 302-351's and a few on 300-6's. Other than that it sounds like a great truck you found, just a little high priced.

    I wouldn't go over $5000. You are also just about due to replace the fuel tanks. You may want to check around the seems for weepage.

    F150 value

    I have a 95 F150 with 5.8, auto, extened cab, 4x4, and it books out at about $6900, so you can go down from there as far as value goes. I don't plow with it though, I use an F350 for that, I have wondered how the F150 would do, I don't think it would work well for commercial use, but the occasional driveway should be fine.
