Iam going to look at a 74 F250 4x4 4speed with a v8 in it. Its pretty solid, no body rust i can see, and starts and runs. My question is 1. What v8s were offered in this year? 2. Is his asking price of $1000 reasonable?
It probably will be a 360. $1000 is a fair price depending on the condition of the body, how well it runs, how much maintenance it needs, and how many sins have been hidden. In some areas of the rust belt, a rust free 4X4 is worth a grip of cash. Here where I live, these trucks are only worth parts. I turn down free axle-less carcasses all the time.
The engine is unknown to you and us. That'll be a question to ask the seller or see the sticker on the block when you see the truck. Engine might be original or swapped along the way. It's good to ask if it had any mechanical work done to it recently such as a rebuilt or new parts to start it up.
Never pay the asking amount. Always negotiate to what you feel is adequate. Always ask bout stuff, even dumb questions you need to know about the truck through its hiistory to present date.
Well for 1000 sounds like a decent price but i always say it never hurts to low ball em down a bit unless you really think this is a fair price and rather not bother but its hard to judge prices over the internet without seein the truck or driving etc checking it over
but i think i would pay 1000 for a rust free truck that runs its hard to come by those
and for V8s they had 360 and 390 i cant remember the rest
