I am thinking about getting rid of my truck and seeing what you guys think about my sale. It's my 99 f-250 reg cab long box XLT v10 4x4 green. I believe the mileage to be around 150,000. I came across a misfire and it smokes like a 2-stroke. I fear the motor having a hole in the piston since it smokes as bad as it does. I would try to sell it as a parts/project truck for $2,000. It ran when parked, tires need to be changed as well. It does have rust on it as it was a work truck.
I just dont have the time and money to venture into getting it back on the road.
Seems to be close to in line on the price without seeing it. I would like a winter "beater" myself too, but I don't have the extra $2,000. But if you still have it around after a while, I may be talking to you.

Thanks for the responses guys. I got a buddy who is ASE certified and were thinking of doing a leak down test but need tires to get it rolling haha.
I guess after we do the leak down test we can better see the price. Also the body is in ok condition. The front bumper got hit but just took a dent. The fenders has some rust as well as the bottoms of the doors. I am currently looking for a box to switch out since construction beat it up too much.
I figure fo the price of 2,000 its a good starting point and if the motor just has a burnt valver then I will fix it myself to get it running. So I will have both heads re-studded for the manifolds and also will put the spark plug fix-it kit from Ford in all holes.
It sounds like it lasted its lifetime of 10 years, which isn't bad. That should be about 4 years after its paid for through a loan. That's better than a lot of others.
If I had $2000 I'd buy it.
I have often noticed that when chickens quit quarreling over their food they often find that there is enough for all of them. I wonder if it might not be the same with the human race.
