Unless you bought the truck new yourself and know otherwise, it is almost certainly 124,400, or 224,400 miles. You might ask your insurance agent if they can put a value on it.


It does seem odd. The LXT lariat was the top of the line. The six isn't causing wonder as much as the four speed manuel. Jot down the VIN and check it against Ford assembly numbers. Something may have been changed. The worse you have is a 27 year old truck in what appears to be good condition. Run a "make offer" ad, collectors or an enthusiast should respond.
