Worst CL Deals (Ford Trucks)

So as many of us do, I spend time searching CraigsList for deals. If you know what you are looking for you can find some GREAT bargains. However, as I have noticed that pendulum of savings can often swing in the opposite direction to some horrifically bad deals. Many times it gets so ridiculous that its funny, which is what this thread is for. If you see a Ford for sale that meets the "worst deal of the day" post it. I will start off with this beauty.

79 Ford Bronco. Must be a real nice truck because it cost twice what I paid for mine a few years ago. slight smoke damage though.

Not saying its not a nice truck, but i am not sure about the "janky electrical" selling technique and if your going to "let the photo's sell it" you might want to get out of the pic and take it with a camera that takes photos better then an 8 bit NES mario game.

Figured out what I was doing wrong. Turns out you have to save it as a pic not just paste it.

The F-450 looks to be in good shape. I've seen them for a lot higher! It looks like it has had some stuff rebuilt. I would probably talk them down to 4k if I could find some faults in it.

Lately around here those prices are high but a couple years ago those trucks would have been sold.
Unfortunately that is how it is up here. That is why if I sell something I go to Pheonix.
Heck we got $3K for a 86 F150 that was tired, had quite a few dents, and needed interior work. That was just bringing it down their and trading it in!




The F450 I could have gotten one with a bed for $2000 and have a banks turbo on it plus be a 92. Although that one was a stick shift not auto.
