1981 F100 With 318 Miles
This truck was sold by Eddie Caudle on 5/22/2021 via BringATrailer for $36,000.
This 1981 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT is said to have purchased new in Madison, North Carolina and reportedly remained with the original owner until being acquired by the selling dealer in February 2021. The truck is finished in Medium Blue over blue cloth and vinyl upholstery and is equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 that sends power to the rear wheels though a three-speed column-shifted manual transmission. Equipment includes the Ranger XLT package, an AM/FM stereo with door panel speakers, air conditioning, a cowl-mounted spotlight, and power steering and brakes. This F-100 shows 318 miles and is offered at no reserve in North Carolina with manufacturer’s literature, two sets of keys, a clean Carfax Report, and a clean Virginia title.
The body is finished in Medium Blue (34) with chrome side moldings. Exterior details include bright wheel-lip moldings, a chrome grill, bed side rails, a brushed-metal accent panel on the tailgate, and added dual exhaust outlets.
15″ steel wheels feature Ford Motor Company–branded covers and are mounted with older 215-15″ Michelin X Radial tires. A spare wheel and tire are mounted beneath the bed.
The blue interior features patterned cloth inserts on the bench seat as well as matching door panels and carpets and a dashboard with wood-tone appliqués. Equipment includes manual-crank windows, an AM/FM stereo with door panel speakers, air conditioning, a centrally-mounted “Ranger XLT” badge on the dashboard, and a control arm for the cowl-mounted spotlight.
The two-spoke steering wheel frames an 85-mph speedometer and additional gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and voltage. The five-digit odometer shows 318 miles.
The 5.0-liter V8 was factory rated at 133 horsepower and 233 lb-ft of torque and sends power to the rear wheels through a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
A dual exhaust system was installed under previous ownership. Additional underside photos can be viewed in the gallery below.
