Exclamation

This makes me wonder what my slightly rusty 83 F250 is worth. I have a new hood to install to replace the OEM rusted out one. Hard to believe a 30 year old vehicle only has 43,000 miles on it. Mine has 160,000 on it.

I personally replaced my rusted out radiator core support in my backyard during winter 2012-2013, it only took me 5 months. If I'm lucky I can use this truck another 3 or 4 years before it falls apart from rust.

He does specify the "odometer reads 43K".

Funny, if he's the original owner wouldn't he know if that's actual?

Nice truck though.
