Default Is this worth $400?

Don't know how well it runs, but I do know it moves under it's own power









Odometer says 101,000, but since the crappy tach covers the speedometer I doubt it works.

Floor rust on driver's side. Interior beat to crap.
V8, couldn't get hood open to see all the grease and oil.

4 speed stick



There's a big rusty thing hanging under the truck is some sort of shield over the gas tank.

Mismatched tires, 31's rear, 235/75 front.



I need a cheap truck for hauling nasty greasy stuff, this might work.

Looks like I'm going to have to try to catch this guy at home, his shoe polish dried up halfway thru the phone number.

If it had a 4.3, I'd believe it. 140K is just warmed up for those motors.

Very true. If that exact same truck was sitting in my next door neighbors driveway. I would not even look at it. Not worth close to that as far as I am concerned but I have absolutely no use for it.

Not sure if I want a nicer truck, I'd just want to fix it up.

If it doesn't need major repairs (i.e. rod kmock, bad trans) I'm buying, If it does need major work I'll post contact info for the parts scroungers.

If you don't buy it I will. That thing is worth 4 beans all day every day. Even if turns out to be a raging piece of shit you can still get your 400 bucks out of it in scrap.

X2 even after you keep the axles.

Well I wouldn't buy it, I already have the axles I needed.
