Looks nice. If your in the market for that rig? I could see paying up to $5k. but seems like $4k. is in order, for the miles.212K
Owner says the engine/trans are sound, heat/AC work great. Little rust around left rear fender and of course on the bumpers (as you can see...). Recent repaint in factory "root beer" brown...
Custom bumpers and roof rack...(what could I sell the roof rack for?)
Tires have little wear...interior looks nice.
It has less miles than my 89 PU...lol!
If the frames rusty run fast! Ack! Um, yea mine is but I'm knocking on wood and crossing my fingers. I'm not a 4 wheeler, she's just my DD... I hope in the next 6 months I can get her frame cleaned up and strengthened because I'm never giving her up!Tinker said:I paid $3,500 for my '84 6-8 years ago in Littleton with 120K miles, original owner, some rust. Paid $5,800 for our '83 13 years ago with 150K mi, 2nd or 3rd owner, 2nd or 3rd engine, recent repaint. Both of them rootbeer (it grows on ya).
I'd be very suspicious of the repaint & go over it thoroughly with a refrigerator magnet. Unless the seller was as anal as I am about rust you can guarantee it'll come back with a vengeance (it did on our '83). The seats & bumpers are a nice touch. Have you looked underneath? If the frame's rusty, run - run fast!
I like the roof rack & might make you an offer on it if you buy the truck. It'd have to fit in my garage, though.
A Mustang-loving friend of mine insists that motorheads are more concerned that their babies go to good homes than they are about money. A tactic that's worked well for me is to profess that I can offer a quick, clean deal for the right vehicle. Notice I didn't say high-dollar. I'm pretty good at buying vehicles but not at selling them.
