Decisions, decisions, decisions...

So I'm contemplating a new DD from this select few (6) I would like the more experienced diesel owners opinions on them.
All 94.5-97 PSDs, 5/6 are manual transmissions.

Some require more body work than others, some are clearly far cleaner than others. Mileage ranges from 135k- 224k miles.

Modifications vary from truck to truck and most of it doesn't matter since I would just add more to the fun.

In order by price. (truck miles/ round trip pick up miles)

(1) $4,000 OBO 94.5 ford powerstroke (212k miles/100 miles)

(2) $4,000/$5,000 1995 ford f350 crew cab powerstroke (215k miles/ 860 miles)

(3) $5,500 F250 take a look! (224k miles/ 800-1,000 miles)

(4) $6,500 (Automatic) 96 7.3L PowerStroke 135,xxx miles (135k miles/ 120 miles)

(5) $6,500 95 f250 powerstroke diesel (160k miles/ 600 miles)

(6) $6,800 1995 F350 powerstroke crew cab (190k miles/ 800-1,000 miles)

Drive time/price doesn't matter to me, they are just close by without having to drive too many states away. I'm looking for opinions on the trucks such as "(?) the body is too rough for that kind of price" or "(?) I think you could talk him down because of mileage"

Thank you in advance!

Looks like #6 is the best truck. Need to check at the bank for a loan, then call the guy up and fly out there. Hope he still has it though.
