My truck took a digger at about the "best" time it could have picked, as always with these things.
I have an acquaintance who would like to sell a 1995 F150, 6 cylinder [300 ci?] 5 speed standard, 4WD with lockout hubs. 140,000 miles, seems reasonably well cared for, tires are good. The guy is honest enough, I suppose.
He wants $2500 for it, which strikes me as a little high. I have yet to see it in person, run it, etc. But I am told that those sixes have a fair amount of heart and longevity to them. I don't see this as being a "forever" truck. But if I could reasonably expect too get 50 or 60,000 light-to-medium duty miles out of it, it might not be too bad a deal. I anticipate that there will be some problems. But newer trucks with 40 or 50,000 miles on them are fetching $10,000 to $15,000 around here. You can make a lot of repairs for that kind of money.
