Depends on how much work you want to do I suppose. Still needs all the front sheet metal; radiator, radiator support, inner fenders, outer fenders, probably wiring & brakes, engine and tranny are a gamble, etc.

That all said, $800 is worth it for a good cab and bed alone

If it were me, I'd buy it for parts but not to restore. But then, that's me and I already have my hands full with my beast. Also a CL find and of course more work than expected

Rebuilt 9" Rear
New Rear Axle Bearings and Seals
New Brakes (Shoes, drums, wheel cylinders and hardware)
New Hard Lines and Flex Lines
Alternator Conversion
Rebuilt Steering Gear and new drag link
and I'm just getting started..

I agree. If I were near Deer Park (where is that?) I would buy that. I looked for two years to find the no-rust '66 shorty I have now. Hard to find.

Deer Park is about 15 miles north of Spokane, Washington. The short beds are getting tougher to find. I can check it out for anyone here as I am on vacation all week.

Dang I got all excited. Saw Deerpark than realized it was on the west coast. We have a Deerpark on Long Island too. Could use a better cab for my truck.

It is on the dry side of the state too. Whenever I head east of the mountains I'm always on the lookout for parked trucks.
There is way less rust.

July 2011, stopped in Sedro-Woolley to visit with FTE member wagonerki, then headed east on hwy 20. About 30 minutes later a faded green '66 Styleside passed us headed west.

Two guys in the cab looked like the characters in Duck Dynasty, long scraggly beards, wild hair. Probably a coupla thawed out freeze dried hippies.

If you cannot find a slick in WA, you aren't looking very hard. Stay off interstates, nothing to see, drive the side/back roads instead.

And btw, I stopped counting 'dents' when I reached 131. Drove from Seattle to Anacortes, ferry to San Juan Island and back, then to Coulee Dam, south to Pasco, west along the WA side of the Gorge back to Seattle.

My family is from Friday Harbor and that's where I was born. If you worked your way out to Roche Harbor than you probably saw one or two of my old trucks parked along the way.
Your description of the two guys in the slick really doesn't narrow it down much for up river, lol.
I found wagonerki's business card at his place of business though I haven't looked him up yet.
And you're right, there is a slick rusting away about every mile.

Parked at a residence at the south end of Cattle Point Rd. is a 1965 or 1966 Mercury M100 8' Styleside. Truck was up against the garage door, so I couldn't see the grille.

There's a popular spot on the west side of the island near a lighthouse...where peoople look for whales. Parked in a backyard nearby was a circa 1953 F100 pickup.

Passing us the other way as we headed towards this spot from Friday Harbor: circa 1955 F100 Panel, both this and the pickup were restored, wondered if both owned by the same guy.

Didn't see any old rolling piles of misery in Roche Harbor, didn't see a parking place either! Drove around and around and around for almost 30 minutes, finally gave up.

btw: I bought all the obsolete parts from the Anacortes Ford dealer in 1988 (Susan was the P/M), dealership has since moved to hwy 20. Found a 20' canvas banner in the attic: NEW 1956 FORDS HERE NOW

What type of old ship is that on land near the ferry dock and how long has it been there? Couldn't find out anything, not even on Anacortes website.

There is a red and white 66 M100 on the rock that I know of. One of my ex trucks would have been just on the way out of town. A white 66 F250 camper special. Further out would be my ex 72ish F350 with a farm bed on it, also white, I say "ish" because I bought it from a guy who works in the junkyard here by the river and nothing was ever as it seemed with this truck, lol. It ran great though. Gave it to my nephew. The rock is also dent heaven.
Hear you about Roche, it is more or less a rich hangout now.

I am parting a 66 F350. It runs and drives with an FE and 4 speed. I would give it to a good home for shipping. PM me if interested. It's a custom cab
