Worth the trouble..?

I seen this on my local CL. always wanted a 4 door. that seems to be a little pricey for the amount of rust / work, or maybe I'm wrong. .

Seller posted a pic of the Warranty Plate: F350 390 2V w/C6 assembled in Canada, ordered from the Phoenix AZ Ford district sales office.

It has major rust issues, probably needs a lot of mechanical work, front seat has been swapped. Figure...at minimum, 30 grand to restore it.

Even though rare and desirable, IMO $5500.00 is way too much money for a rusted out, mechanically challenged, damaged/missing parts Crew Cab.

I agree, he's asking way too much. I would only pay about $1K since it doesn't have a title.

IMO seller should get a title. Like he says, it's not that hard to do and he, as an owner (if he is....) has to be involved in the process anyway.

As for condition, that is a tall mountain to climb. I bet if you put 1/10th of the effort required to just start the project you could find one in better shape.

Buy the one in the best condition you can afford and you will be far ahead in the game.
I also agree that example should be around 1k price wise.

2x having that much rust is a tall hill to climb over in that condition.

I just saw one on the side of the road for sale here in Laramie. Want me to get the phone number off of it? Looks like it is at least running and driving, like it was driven to the place it is parked.
