Drivetrain in an 83 One ton??

Hello All,
I am currently looking at a one ton dodge for sale in a local used car dealership. Any way, it is a dually 4wd and has a flatbed and a plow. They guy is asking 1500. Is this good? And, what kind of drivetrain could it have? It is an auto. Besides mashing on the gas, or droping the pan, is there any way to tell if there is a posi in the rear?

well it should have a 360/ 727 w/205 t-case and dana 70 rear w/dana 60 frt with either 4.10 or 4.56 gears / well first thing is pop the hood and see if the option sticker is still stuck to the hood and readable / it will give you all the info you need if its there and readable / if not check to see if the rear has TWO tags / one will tell you gear ratio and the other will say USE LIMITED SLIP OIL ONLY / if not then pull the cover / a 1 ton dually with plow for $1500 is a damned good deal [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
