Hi there. It really depends on your application and what you’ll be using the vehicle. If you are buying a commuter with some light loads, the 99 Ford with 122,000 miles might be the better option. You may want to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a pre-purchase car inspection to look the vehicles over and help you make a good decision.
