1995 F-150 5.8L... HP rating???

I am looking at purchasing a 1995 Lariat F-150 Supercab 4x4 with a 5.8L and 97K miles.....

I was wondering what the HP and TQ rating is for this truck? MPG?

I am looking to sell my 2004 F-150 SuperCrew Lariat 5.4... and replace it with the truck above. I Dont use the truck enough as a truck so its pointless in having it.

I still need a truck though to haul my car trailer with my mustang from time to time and also to haul stuff in the bed and also to drive during snowstorms to and from work....

The 95's were rated at 215 hp, and 325 lb/ft of torque. Most people seem to be getting 12-14 mpg with their 5.8. I get about 13.

Actually it's rated at 210 HP, but who's counting

I average 15MPG on straight highway driving, probably 12-13 combined or staright city driving. Any hard driving will knock it down to 10 or less very quickly, but damn it's fun to punch the thing every now and then.

I've had mine for about 6 months now, and aside from the mileage, no complaints at all. I routinely tow 3 tons and more and can easily haul a ton of sand or gravel. The only time I ever got it stuck was when I first got it and got stupid, went down a hole that has swallowed better trucks than mine, but that's a story I'd just as soon forget.

It is an Eddie Bauer not a Lariat, also if it has the 2 separate captain chairs and center consol, GET IT! They are pretty comfortable and better looking than the bench/center consol combo.

Yeah no lariats past the 92 body style change. Just Custom/XL, XLT, and Eddie Bauer for 92-96.
