I just sold my Toyota Truck that I bought after owning Mustangs for years and I am currently shopping for an F-150.
I just happened upon what seems to be a good deal and it is from someone I know so I can varify that all I know about this truck is the truth.

The truck is a 1988 F-150 Custom. 302 EFI 80,000 original miles, 5 speed, 4 wheel drive, air conditioned, cloth seats, rubber/vinyl floors, longbed, dual tanks, paint not pretty, nice 33x12.50 tires on 15x10 chrome rims, little damage to rear of bed and tailgate, new clutch, new aluminum toolbox. $3500

What should I be weary about since I have never owned an F-150?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Check compression and pull the codes (buy a Haynes manual as soon as you buy the truck) and try to get a vacuum gauge and check manifold vacuum while it's idling. Those 3 things will tell you almost everything you need to know about the condition of the engine.

It sounds like a helluva deal. If you don't buy it, give me his phone number - I might be interested.
