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.

2001 F150 4.2L gas, bought at 11,000 miles & have 108,000 on it. Getting 14 mpg around town & 17-21 mpg on interstates depending on wind & slopes. I replaced my rusted out radiator core support in my backyard last winter, it only too 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.
