Should I buy?
I found an add in the paper for 2 older model fords. There was a '78 3/4ton with a 460 (broken timing chain) and a 77 1/2ton with a 400 (with carb froze shut). He's asking $250 each or $400 for the pair. He lives a ways away from me (50miles), so towing the suckers home is gonna be a feat. I have not looked at them yet, nor do I know if they are 4wd or not. What I know is what I have listed here, but do you think they are worth the asking price, based on what little info there is?
I figured if I do buy them and find out that its gonna take more money to get them running than is worth it, that I could part them out for at least one good axle (maybe the front 3/4 ton axle if its 4wd) and get most if not all of my money back.
So what do you guys (my life-savers) think about this deal?
