Default sold 1987 Chevy 4x4 3/4 ton 8 bolt plow truck $800

This is a 1987 Chevy 3/4 ton plow truck. The good. Great running 350 4 barrel should be a 4 bolt but I haven't checked the numbers yet. Perfect shifting auto tranny. Transfer case works great and locks in and out nice and smooth as do the front hubs. 8 bolt front and rear axles. The plow is older but in nice shape and not all rusted out. Also comes with an extra pump. Tires are in ok shape and will get you through the winter.
I bought this for the drive train and running gear for a Jeep project I have but I went a different route with that and don't have room for this any longer.
Now the bad.
This is an older plow truck and has its fair share of rust, holes, and dents. the doors shut good and the windows roll up and down good. The plow is missing a hose to make to turn left and right but I know it works. If it sits for a couple days it will have to be jumped (weak battery). and last when I bought it it needed a starter. I put a new $65 starter o it and it started great a couple times then it seemed like it was missing the flywheel so I dropped it and inspected the flywheel and it looks great. I put the starter back on and it worked great again for about 5 times then again it seemed like it was missing. I think it just needs the rear bracket to keep it from twisting or maybe just shimmed. I have no more time to mess with it nor do I want to. I will make it start for you and you can hot lap it around where I have it stored. It would be a great parts or project truck, wood hauler, plow truck, or just a back woods beater. About the only thing I would trade for is mud tires for the Jeep project 35 or bigger with 6 bolt chevy rims. and maybe something else with a motor. $800 is real close to my bottom dollar so please don't low ball me to bad. I will keep it till snow falls and get $1200 before I give it away. Sorry the pics suck but im no computer guy. Thanks txt or call 269-282-4537.

How is the floor? Basically, can you drive in the rain and stay dry?
