Hey guys, I need some more opinions...so here it is. I'm in the market for a project 4x4...so i've been calling, looking, and searching. I'm trying to stay under $1300 so..it's tough. Well...today we started remodeling some guys basement about 10 minutes from my house...and in his driveway sits a...helpless, tired 1978 C/k 10 4x4, single cab stepside on 33's. So...before I knocked off work, I saw the owner of the house..and asked about the truck/if it was for sale. He said yeah, and told me everything is fine except for minimal rust, and two dryrotted tires. Well, I looked at it closer...and MINIMAL rust is a bunch of bull.... it has A LOT of rust. Thankfully no cancer is on the body, but all the fenders have at least 4" of rust surrounding the outer, and the inner fenders are almost gone. I also noticed that in the bed of the truck is a load of wet, rotted mulch that has been there for god knows how long. It is also misssing a grille. The rust doesn't seem to be such a donwfall...i'll sawzall the outer fenders at least 3" anyways....and the front inner fenders can be found at a local junkyard. BUT THE BED....it's covered in mulch...and if it's rusted out I could just replate it, or tear off the whole bed and make a custom diamond plate bed. It also has a 350 with a edelbrock carb. He cranked it up for me..and i must say it beats a mean lick..he also said all of the axles are like new on the inside(rebuilt in 02'), and that it had a new tranny in 00'. Sorry im typing like crazy..im just so amped about this truck(it has a lot of offroading potential!!!). So...I asked him how much he'd let it go for...and he said he paid $1500 for it two years ago just to have for a hunting truck..and he said for me to make an offer if i was interested. So...I said..."okay, let me sleep on it... ". So here I am now..what should I do? Say screw it...and find another truck...or make an offer? So..tell me...make any opinions/comments at all...any are welcome. -Thanks, Grasso.
