    454/400 2 wheeler. Tailgate is about the only thing that really needs attention. Pretty darn good shape for a 79.

    there is one FS in town if you want to compare it to. its identical except its a 74. it had a frame off resto in 1990 and the paint is still in good shape, rust free. there asking $5000. its been siting for about a month now.

    the question of what its worth is always tough, and depends if that truck is what your acutally looking for. i think the 74 here in town is still for sale becasue nobody is in the market for a 30 year old pickup. i think the price is fair.

    i wish that a crewcab was in my driveway every morning i wake up, but that dream never seems to come true

    It's a really clean truck,nice interior, they said they brought it back from kali. so probably never has had rust.

    I'll give you two dollars for it /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif or his phone number /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif forgot it was a 2wd, That might lower the value some then, at least in my point of view. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I paid 4500 for mine, but its 4wd and newer with a 6.2 and turbo, so maybe 3500-4000 would be my guess.

    did it actually sell for 7? or just had that on the windshield. car lots are a rip off and always have prices twice what they are worth.

    Looks good, Kert. No idea on value. Haven't paid that much attention to 2wds lately. Where is he located. Just general area. I think I remembered seeing one like that just West of Estherville this past yr.

    If you could get it for under 3 grand then stick a cummins in it, then you would have a kick ass tow rig for under 8 or so grand. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    He's in the spencer Iowa area. I think I'm gona pass on it. Stomper might go ahead and go after it. I wish it were already deisel and or already 4 wheel drive. I hate to have to fix both these deficienies.
