The F250 diesel is up for grabs. I think I know someone I can trade it with who may have a lot of stuff I can use.
I'm also about to drag home another four cylinder manual Ranger with an extra engine to rebuild for a measley three hunnerd bucks. It's cutting it thin, but it might just be money in the bank when I'm done with it...
when i get back to work after my leg heals up, im gonna try to find an 88. my dad had one that he bought new and i loved that truck. 4 banger and 5 speed. ext cab xlt. great truck. sold it for 500 bucks when it had 250,xxx miles on it and i never forgave him.
I like the ones with the four headlight sealed beam front grill. Miles don't mean nuthin' if you can swap y'own engines.
Besides, I've never had a set of wheels that I didn't modify sooner or later.
Get a load of this here -
The I talked at the guy who owns it today and he claims now that the rims and tires on it are not his, but he has the original alloy ones. Only thing is he said he ran over a curb at Richardsons Landing with it and one of the tires is shot.
I'd rather have the original stock alloy rims, but if any of them are damaged I'm gonna have to say "Buddy - you still own your truck, congatulations!"
And a month from now I'll offer him a flat hundred for it...
and yeah i know miles arent anything. i have a 91 accord wagon with 215xxx miles, my f150 has 214xxx miles and my previous fords were all 250xxx or more with no problems whatsoever. i like high mileage vehicles.
