OT \'84 f250 diesel think it\'s worth it? Help pleas
I've found an '84 f250 4x4, 6.9 (new injectors, ip, and batteries), 4 speed, 200k, guy is asking 1200obo.
Here's what i got from a call to the owner:
it has rust in the usual places (fenders but molding is still there, brights switch, cab corrners)
dmi rear bumper
bed liner (he admited it was probably ugly under it)
Doesn't leak anywhere
He said it was owned by a farmer before him who did haul with ithe bought it to drive last winter and didn't drive it much. He's had it listed since the middle of july and had a couple people call want it shiped but he's a couple hours south of me, i talked to him today and he was in sturgis and his bike just broke so he'll need some cash when he gets back and said he's negotiable.
I'm planning on going and looking at it with one of the swbbs diesel gurus so i don't buy complete junk. I'm thinking i can probably get it for 800-1000 since he wants it gone. It seems like a decent deal and truck though i havn't seen it. Right now i do have some extra cash if i bought it and could put some money into basic maintance (fluids, glow plugs, filters) and any little things it needs, find decent body parts like fenders and doors, buy some repair pannels for the cab and make it actually look decent.
What's your toughts, think it's a good idea or should i run away from it like the plague?
