Welcome to the forums. Nice F150 as well. Plan on getting rid of it when the diesel comes out or will you be keeping both?

Hopefully you don't plan on getting rid of your 95' unless you know it will go to a good home since these days we just dont see enough of them, unless of course you go more south.

how long have you had your 95' for?

They're definitely out there, but it's rare to find them in good condition. That's the problem lol

My guess is there's a lot under hiding. Give it some time and we'll see barn finds on top of barn finds, and even regular finds. Not exactly a low production volume vehicle.

Well yea.. that's the thing lol. Only found up till 97' but nonetheless, in 97' they sold 746,000 units in the US. Not a low production at all.

There's also a lot of companies out there rebuilding and restoring the older ones so if you can't find what you want on the regular classifieds you need to start looking at those specialized companies and websites where they would show up.

Like.. the pre-80's F150s are worth rebuilding/restoring usually. Anything 90s+ is only worth it in terms of self satisfaction. Other then that... blah nothing interesting at all.

Even models from the 90's are still valued, held on to and not that easy to find mint.

I either rarely and randomly spot them on the road in mint condition, see one rusting away on someones driveway or in the scrap yard with cars sitting on top of it.

Or on a farm... If you go to the country side, you'll see them sitting around typically in crappy condition as well.
