    Ya need to fill out your profile, so folks know where you are. In California that probably isn't a bad price. But here in Colorado that truck would run ya $1,200-2,000. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Older rigs often have rust .. look at the inside of the wheel wells, and the doorsills. Look underneath.

    Without knowing what "special" things you were told, it's hard to say, but even in CA, *I* wouldn't pay four or five grand for it.

    Well, if the sheetmetal were perfect and it was 100% factory, or perfectly restored to factory original, I'd pay that kind of money. If it's been modified in any way, though, it's not worth it, IMHO.

    Be nice to have more detail.

    The question should be; Is it worth it to you ??? It's your money. If it didn't have the mods it has, would you do them ??? It's all up to you. Some people wouldn't pay top dollor unless it's in perfect condition and 100% factory original. I personally wouldn't want my truck like that becouse I wouldn't wheel it then. I'm more likely to pay alittle more for a truck with the mods I'd do anyways. That's just my views, others will have different opinions.
