1986 6.9 value

I know this has been asked somewhat many times but I am looking at this truck tomorrow (1986 FORD F-250 4x4 diesel XLT) This might be my first diesel and I need to know what to look for, and what everyone would say the truck needs to be this value. There are no pics so I won't know the condition of the truck until I get there. Right now I'm looking for a cheep truck (under 4000) to replace my existing truck. The only reason I'm looking to replacing my truck is because it is a reg cab and I know want a extended or crewcab now that I have two kids.

Just my 2 cents, it would have to be pretty cherry and I like the 86 models. One of the members has a crew with the high cab in the back 4x4 ith a turbo and gearvendors for 2500 that just needs a tranny rebuild. C6 they are the cheapest to rebuild too.

I'm def not going to settle, my truck still works perfectly, and does what I need it to do. I just need the extra seating instead of relying on the in-laws to pick up the family when I need the truck and the family,

yeah,that would really have to be super clean and/or good upgrades for an 86 to pull in this much.
i got my 93 cheaper.tho,the bed was rotted(which i didn't care as i had the dump bed you see planned prior to buying.) and needs a couple front fenders.and some typical work any 16/17 yr old truck which sat most of its life would.
if it's not far,id go look at it.but id be expecting the best an 86 could look like.
even then,your only looking at a 3 speed truck.fine for its day.but man,that OD is good to have.(until your speedo goes and you need to limp home hahaha.)
its not likely going to be as pretty as it needs to be for 3500 if its in Rochester Mass.but you never know until you check it out.

I paid 1500 for my '86 XLT with a 6.9 and maybe 175,000 on it. Ran great for another 75,000 plus. That was in '07. For 4000, it'd have to be cherry or built.

Well I paid 4000 for my dually and bought new tires for it before I drove it home, It was super clean and setup like I wanted, so I feel like it was worth it. Between the gearvendors, turbo, dually kit and alcoas, it would have cost way more just for the add ons.

For a reference I just picked up this '86 F-250 4x4 6.9L longbox standard cab for $500. It needed one new battery, new cables, new tie rods and an alignment, but the thing runs great. It has a 4 speed manual.

How much any truck will cost is very region specific usually.

Someone just told me about an 86 F350 4x4 in good condition sold for 1000 here last week.

I never hear about these deals till they are gone though.
